9U - Rookie Ball
The 9U - Rookie Ball program is designed to promote physical development of children through the game of baseball. The program helps develop physical literacy by using a modified game to teach the basic baseball skills to children and ensure success. The program is designed for children ages eight and nine. See below a booklet that outlines the recommended programming for 9U designed by Baseball Alberta, Lacombe Minor Baseball, and Darcy Warawa.
- Create a healthy environment in which children of various levels of ability find pleasure in learning baseball
- Initiate or pursue the development of basic baseball skills and strategies for players
- Teach and develop sportsmanship in a context of healthy competition
- Develop and promote self-esteem in children
