1. Every player gets to bat ONCE per inning
2. Parent coach must underhand toss to his/her team.
3. Baserunners can move as many bases they want until the defensive player with the ball yells "TIME"
4. Players CANNOT strike out.. we must wait until they hit the ball, however they are allowed to hit off a tee after 3 pitches or they can throw the ball with their hand.
5. OUTS will be recorded but not the score. The team with the most outs on defense wins!! If a player is out they remain on the bag but the defensive team counts how many outs they record in a game! (this should help the kids understand that outs are the key goal when on defense, and the team that gets more outs will ultimatly prevent more runs and will win)
6. Games should last 2-3 innings depending on the time.
To increase Hand eye coordination (your pre game warm ups should include 100 catches, 100 groundballs, 100 pop flys to each player, so you must work very fast to get the reps in, all parents should help with the pre game warm up and each kid or pair of kids should have an individual coach so they can get their "reps" in)
To teach the objective of the game (the objective is to get more runs than the other team! to do this you must score runs and not get out yourself and try to get the other team out as much as you can)
To teach safety, team work, organization, and thought
