Often a family’s first introduction to Little League®, providing a Tee Ball experience that is grounded in fun, fitness, and fundamentals is key to growing a child’s love for the game. To aid leagues in providing a positive introduction to baseball and softball, Little League developed a 10-week curriculum that has been shown to improve the Tee Ball experience for players, parents, and coaches. All chartered Tee Ball teams are provided with a free printed copy of the curriculum, which is also available free of charge on LittleLeagueU.org. Leagues, coaches, and parents are encouraged to use the Tee Ball Curriculum in conjunction with the resources below to provide a fulfilling Little League Tee Ball experience.
Tee Ball Bats
Starting on January 1, 2018, all Tee Ball bats in the Little League Baseball® Tee Ball program must feature the USA Baseball mark and accompanying text. Tee Ball bats that were produced and/or purchased prior to the implementation of the new standard can be certified using an Approved Tee Ball Sticker (available September 1, 2017) via the USA Baseball Tee Ball Sticker Program for use with approved Tee Ball baseballs for Little League play. Tee Ball bats for Little League Softball® Tee Ball programs must follow the Little League Softball Official Regulations, Playing Rules, and Policies.
