THE SOUDERTON AREA BASEBALL AND SOFTBALL LEAGUE IS VERY EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE ITS ADAPTATION OF THE PROGRAM QUICKBALL FOR BOYS AND GIRLS AGES 4 THROUGH 6!
WHAT IS QUICKBALL?
Quickball is a game that anyone can play and it emphasizes that players have fun. It was designed to help players with little or no
experience gain skills in baseball and softball in a competitive team setting. In each game, players try to hit a single, a double, a
triple and a home run! Quickball even has a scoring system in which points are earned not just when batting, but also in the field.
HISTORY OF QUICKBALL AND WHO USES IT
Quickball has been designed to be used all the way up to the collegiate level and beyond, too! It has fitness and skill-strengthening
elements that are part of the program as well. Hall of Fame shortstop Cal Ripken Jr. is a major supporter of Quickball. His national
foundation — the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation — has built Ripken Quickball leagues and programs in more than 1,000 schools. Also,
Quickball has been partnered with the Philadelphia Phillies, Toronto Blue Jays, Boys & Girls Clubs and Police Athletic Leagues (PAL)
nationwide along with Michelle Obama's Let's Move Campaign just to name a few.
WHAT IT MEANS TO SOUDERTON
Quickball is now quickly being adopted into youth little leagues. It is a fast paced program that really teaches the fundamentals of
baseball and softball, yet keeps all the kids captivated and involved, while creating a very fun atmosphere for the game. The
Souderton Area Baseball and Softball League will be incorporating Quickball into our league to replace T-Ball. T-Ball was officially
for ages 5 and 6 – now Quickball will be for ages 4 through 6 as well! Youth sports as a whole have seen a decline in participation,
but Quickball has helped many organizations to INCREASE their registration by its fast paced, all-inclusive nature. Gone are the days
of T-Ballers out in the outfield pulling up grass.
What's also great is with the program, there are drills and stations which have been drawn up by its creators that help coaches to
run quality and instructive practices and games. Throughout the years, many parents – especially the ones whose child was a first
year participant, were hesitant to coach a team because maybe they have never done so in the past. Quickball will help to empower
first time coaches to teach the game and keep it fun for the kids.
