Tim Bit Softball

Timbit Softball 

Timbit Softball  is a revolutionary way of introducing the sport of softball to 4 (by May 1st) -10 year old children. Activities are included which foster the involvement of all players, including players with high and low skill levels.  It uses activities and lead-up games that are patterned after informal playground games that promise fun and lots of action. Participants will go home at the end of the night happy and tired while improving their fitness level and softball skills.

Timbit Softball provides 4-10 year olds with maximum opportunity to practice the progressions necessary to successfully take part in the game of softball.
