5U - Fundamentals
The fundamentals program is designed to provide a fun experience for 4 & 5 year-old youngsters to learn the basic skills of baseball. Players must be 4 years of age by April 30 to enroll in the program. Please contact us if you would like special consideration for the age restrictions.
The goal of the program is to build a confident group of parents as coaches and children ready to enter the T-Ball program. Sessions focus on teaching the fundamentals of baseball – throwing, hitting, and fielding. Waterloo and Kitchener REP team players and coaches are invited to assist with one-on-one instruction.
The fundamentals program is a 6-week program held on Saturday mornings beginning May 15 2021. Each session includes 20 players and will be held outdoors. Uniform will be provided but players must provide their own glove.
Each participate will receive an award on the last day of the program.
