Little League Tee Ball is a blast! Each Tee Ball season we have fun playing our very successful Little League brand of tball with our main key is to have FUN!
Tee Ball is the starting point for baseball and girls softball. We recommend every player age 4 or 5 to have at least one season in Tee Ball and then feel free to play the next season in Progressive TBALL. Some players enjoy their 4 and 5 year old age playing Tee Ball.
Coaches, parents and players alike have a tremendous season. The teams are parent coached and play under the rules and direction of Tulsa Little League. Teams are made up of 8 to 10 players. The team size is kept small to allow for more interaction and attention for all the players that will keep them involved in the game. We always need parents involved to coach these teams and you can organize your team around your players friends and school classmates.
The MOST IMPORTANT success in getting our tball teams organized and practicing is for the parents to make sure and volunteer early to be the Team Manager. We will wait until we have team managers before players are put on a team.
What is the Team Manager?
The team manager is the team’s communicator and organizer. Basic responsibilities are to communicate through email to the parents. The team manager decides on which days and time to practice, where to practice, signing up for free practice fields at our facility, picks up and hands out the team uniforms and assigns the snack duties to a parent each game. The rest of the teams parents, up to 4, help coach the team. Little League provides online instructional video, coaching tips and a booklet to help out each team. We’ve found the most successful teams have a good team manager that sends out a weekly email to the team.
First Step for Team Manager?
Register your Team! We have a simple form where you list your contact information and also your player and friends, if any, to be on the same team. Many parents just list their player on the form and we’ll add the remaining players to complete your team.
Tee Ball play is open to 4 and 5 year old players. Each season we play 10 to 12 games. All games are played at Tulsa Little League complex near the corner of 61st St and South Yale Avenue.
We offer a very affordable registration fee that includes the uniform (Hat, Jersey, Pants). There are no other costs involved except for personal items such as a glove, bat, or batting helmet. Gloves are the only essential item as players do end up sharing bats and other equipment. All the players will receive a participation award at the end of the season, this is the only league that we provide participation awards since there are no league standings in the Tee Ball division. This is also their first experience and we want to make it a good one!
Tee Ball parents attend each game and many want to be on the field helping out. To do this you must complete a volunteer application.
Tulsa Little League supplies each team with a batting tee, practice and game balls. Tulsa Little League supplies the players jersey, baseball pants and a hat. Parents need to purchase a baseball glove. The team will need at least 1 bat to share and 4 helmets. Helmets are required at practice and games, at all times when batting and optional when playing as the pitcher or first baseman on defense.
Parents are strongly encouraged to become involved in this introduction level of Little League. After completing a Little League volunteer application and passing a required national background check, parents may become involved in practices, and be eligible as coaches, managers, umpires, local league board members and other volunteer positions within the league.
Now it’s time to sign up to be a team manager and sign up your player! We are Little League!
