The 2018 season ushered in an exciting new experience for our Rookie division (5-6 year old). Southeast Valley Baseball replaced our traditional T-ball game with Quickball. Quickball comes to us from Cal Ripkin, Sr. Foundation and is aimed to invigorate baseball interest.
The Quickball website promotes Quickball as:
"A truly revolutionary national sports program designed to make baseball more exciting and active to play.
Quickball teaches all diamond skills in a more active, engaging way. Anyone can play and teamwork is emphasized on all levels. Each player gets to try for a single, double, triple and home run in every game! There’s also scoring on both offense and defense and anyone can succeed regardless of skill level.
What makes Quickball such a successful program is its inclusiveness and action-packed game structure. It teaches and strengthens baseball skills by offering multiple hitting, fielding and throwing chances for all players during each game. Innovative concepts such as timed team at bats, rapid batter rotation and two-way scoring keep games moving and get every- one involved - critical elements in grabbing the attention of today’s kids.
As a whole, Quickball is a fun-filled, exciting way to make kids active and successful on the diamond!"
