Games:

After the children have rotated through all stations they will play a game against another team.  Please play against different teams each night. 

Blastball:

Equipment: blastbat, blastball, tee, 1 base 1 cone for other ‘baseline’.

Only 1st base is used for the game.  (about 45 feet away from home) Have a parent stand 2 feet behind base to give high fives as the children run through the base (this teaches them not to stop before the base)

Each team takes a turn at bat.  All children bat off the tee.

Defensive team rotate fielding positions so all children should have a chance to field the ball.  Give the children their areas to ‘field’ so they don’t dog pile each other but learn to work together as a team.

When defence gets ball, either by catching in the air or ground balls. The defence team all yell BLAST. The child that stopped the ball will then throw the ball back to the coach in the field who will then throw it to the coach at bat (setting up the tee).

When offence passes base the offensive team yells BALL!  The batter then returns to their team to cheer their players on.

If you want, you can keep score by who yells first gets a point but you don’t have to.

Once all players on the team bat switch sides and continue the inning.  This game teaches hitting, running, catching & fielding.
