7U


Thorold 7U is a developmental, recreational program for youth born between 2012-2014.  The program runs 1 night a week out of South Confederation Park from 6:15pm to 7:15pm.


7U aims to build on the basic skills that were taught in 5U5U.  Players will be pitched to by a mechanical pitching machine at 25-30mph.  Players will work on hand-eye coordination, swing skills and begin to learn the game of base.  Like 5U there are no outs or scored recorded during the games.  However, 7U aims to keep a steady rotation of defense and batting to keep the players engaged.  Each team will bat 4 hitters per "inning" rather than bat through the entire order.


Typically there are 3-5 7U teams comprised of 9-11 players each.  The schedule is a mix of practices and games.  Each team will have 1 head coach and a number of helpers.  The season traditionally starts the week after the Victoria Day May long weekend.


Players will receive a numbered jersey and team hat.  A team picture will also be provided to every player with individual pictures available for purchase. 


Players are required to have their own glove, base pants, closed toe-shoes, CSA approved helmet with an attached face guard as well as a protective athletic cup (jock/jill).


The season will end around the third week of August and will finish with a skills competition/fun-day of mini-games, medal presentations and more.


Players interested in playing are encouraged to attend the free in-gym practices that will be taking place in the offseason (facility permitting)
