Fairfax Youth Sports Machine/ Coach Pitch

Fairfax Machine/ Coach Pitch

This program is designed for boys and girls who are currently in 1st or 2nd grade with a focus on the fundamentals of fielding, throwing, and catching. Teams will be made up of up to 7 - 9 players and boys and girls play on separate teams. Rules for this league can be found below. With the use of pitching machines at the appropriate speed, players will also learn the basics of hitting a pitched ball. Coaches may also pitch to their players. This unique program offers participants more of a challenge than T-ball and allows them to work on their hitting, throwing, and catching skills before moving to Little League baseball or softball when they are in 3rd grade. Practices are on Monday and/ or Wednesday nights at 5:30 or 6:30 beginning April 8 or as weather permits. Games will be held at the Fairfax Regional Sports and Park Complex (the Complex) on Wednesday nights at 5:30 or 6:30. The season plays from April 24, 2024, through May 29, 2024.

There is a $30.00 registration fee for all participants.

FYS believes every child should be able to play youth sports and offers a scholarship program for families if the registration fee poses a hardship. Scholarships are provided through local donations from participants like you. Every dollar helps. If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution, please contact Joe Kell at jkell@cityoffairfax.org for more information

We need coaches. Our coaches are what make this one of the premier recreation programs in the area. The registration fee will be waived for coaches. Email Joe at jkell@cityoffairfax.org for more information.
