Kiwiball is our fun introduction to baseball for our players 5-7 years old. Within this programme our players learn the basic building blocks of the sport through fun activities and games. For our younger players, a tee is used to help the players know how and where to hit the ball. Once they have mastered this, they then move up to Rookie Ball where players are pitched a ball. The aim of this programme is to ready the players for the youth baseball leagues.
