Coach Pitch - Ages 6-7

This Division is for boys (and girls although there is also a Softball Coach Pitch division) who have played T-ball and are ready to begin hitting a coached pitched ball. Coaches will pitch to their teams using a Safety 1 level baseball for the maximum number of pitches as indicated in the rules with no player strike outs.  No kid pitching is permitted in this division.  All players bat throughout the game.  The most common age for this division is 6 & 7 year's old.

Registration fee includes hat & jersey that players will keep.

Boys must turn 6 years old by August 31st of the current season to play in Coach Pitch Minors.  If a player played up into Coach Pitch as a 5 yr. old then the player must play in Coach Pitch 2 years as players must be league age 7 to move up to A-Ball.

Coach's Meeting: The Coach's Meeting for T-Ball, Coach Pitch and A-Ball is scheduled for late February each season and this is where the coaches will get their team assignments and then within a day or two, begin contacting parents to introduce themselves as your child's coach. Your coach will also give you your practice schedule and let you know which field to meet your new team at. 

Practice Season Opens: Practice Season opens on the March 21st, 2020. This does not mean your child will have their 1st practice on this date, this is simply the overall opening date of practice season for T-Ball through A-Ball.

Practice Dates: Teams and practice schedules won't be picked by the Coaches until the meeting in early March. Coaches typically chose 2 practices per week although with the rainy season hanging over our heads in early Spring, it's common to have to cancel one.

Game Season: Game Season opens on the 2nd Monday in April. Game schedules won't go out until at least the 2nd or 3rd week of practice season. Just like practice season, your player won't necessarily play their 1st game on opening day - this is just the overall Opening Game Season for the lower divisions. Teams are scheduled 2 games per week, most games are weeknights at 6pm but an occasional Saturday game may be scheduled, especially if we have a lot of rain outs to get rescheduled. Once games begin most teams don't have any more practices but an occasional coach may try to schedule a practice if there's a field available.

Equipment Needed for Individual Players: South Hill Little League supplies the T-shirt jersey and hat that each player gets to keep at the end of the season. Equipment needed for player's 1st practice is: Batting helmet, cleats, baseball pants or sweat pants and a baseball style cap, long sleeve or short sleeve shirt, and comfortable jacket or hoodie.  A bat is not required but if you purchase one, the bat must be Little League approved - see the Approved Bats tool bar link on our homepage. 

Uniform Information: Do not purchase baseball uniform items ie; belt, uniform pants, or socks until you have met with your player's coach at the first or 2nd practice. Coach's won't know their uniform colors until we have the Coach's Meeting and even then, color variances don't translate over emails so most coach's will not have you purchase the additional uniform items until you all meet in person.

Additional equipment and uniform items that will be needed: Batting helmet, baseball pants, uniform belt, uniform socks, cleats and if you purchase a bat for your player, the bat must be Little League approved. 

Uniform Information: Do not purchase baseball uniform items (except maybe a pair of practice baseball pants and if you get 'gray' pants, there's a good chance your coach will use this color for their team pants too), until you have met with your player's coach at the first or 2nd practice. Coaches won't know their uniform colors until we have the Coach's Meeting and even then, color variances don't translate over emails so coaches will not be having you purchase the additional uniform items until you all meet in person.

Where to purchase Uniform Items: Dick's Sporting Goods is an official sponsor of Little League and they will be setting up a SHLL weekend and offer discounts. Walmart is another location for affordable cleats and baseball equipment.

Head Coaches: We have lots of Head Coaching positions available. 

Buddy & Coach Request: You can add a Buddy or Coach request to your child's registration.
