About Lil’ Sluggers
Lil Sluggers is a child development program created to introduce children ages 2-6 to the game of baseball. Lil Sluggers classes develop important baseball skills such as throwing, fielding, hitting, and base running. Developmentally appropriate equipment and games are used to teach your child the game of baseball in a fun, exciting, and positive environment.
Lil Sluggers Class Overview:
- The program has small class sizes, maximum 8 students per class.
- Each Lil Sluggers class lasts 45 minutes.
- No equipment is necessary for 2 and 3 year olds. For 4 and 5 year olds baseball gloves are recommended.
- All other equipment is provided. For safety reasons, wiffle balls and bats are used for classes.
Please note: Classes are not drop-off, a parent/guardian must be on-site during the class.
Yes! We offer open enrollment, so that you can join anytime and have your class fees prorated. This means that you pay only for the remaining class and not the full session fee.
Participants should wear comfortable clothes and indoor soccer shoes (no cleats) or plain tennis shoes. Lil Slugger jerseys are provided with the purchase of the required annual membership fee ($30). Outfitting your child in Lil Sluggers garb is a fun way to make your child feel part of a team. Kids naturally appreciate looking like older, uniformed kids and role models. Plus a uniform gives kids a sense of belonging because they look like others on the team.
Classes are co-ed, so the mix of boys and girls is based on who registers. If you have five or more players and we have enough field space, we are open to creating a special class for you with your requested mix of children.

The entire session must be paid in full at the time of registration. However, since we offer open enrollment, we do prorate class fees when joining after the season has started.
The free trial policy is usually limited to one free class per child. However, in special circumstances, a Lil Sluggers Coordinator may offer an additional free class to a child, particularly if it’s been a long time since the last free trial class.

No, in order to maintain class ratios and consistency within the program, we schedule children for specific times and days. When registering, be sure to first determine which day best suits your schedule. Of course there may be an occasion when a make-up class is needed. In that situation, you can schedule a make-up class for any day in which class space is available. If your schedule changes during the session, and you need to switch days, we will try to accommodate your needs to the best of our ability. However, changes cannot be guaranteed and are based on space availability.
