Tulsa National Little League

CHAMP Ball - Ages 5 and 6

Tulsa National Little League CHAMP Ball is a blast, it is the next step up for an experienced tee ball player. Starting in CHAMP Ball, we introduce hitting a pitched ball, scored games, regular season standings and an end of season tournament.

We recommend CHAMP Ball to those 5 and 6 year olds that have already played a tee ball season and if the parents feel the player is ready to hit from a coach pitched ball. The rule difference between Tee Ball and CHAMP Ball is that a player gets 5 attempts to hit the ball and the player can choose to hit from a coach pitching the ball or from the batting “T”. For example, a player can get 3 pitches from the coach and then select to hit off the batting tee. CHAMP ball is for the more experienced player where the parents feel the player is ready to sometimes hit a pitched ball.

Coaches, parents and players alike have a tremendous season. The teams are parent coached and play under the rules and direction of Tulsa National Little League. CHAMP Ball play is open to 5 and 6 year old players. Each season we play 10 to 12 games. All games are played at Tulsa National Little League complex near the corner of 61st St and South Yale Avenue. Teams are made up of 10 to 12 players. We always need parents involved to coach these teams and you can organize your team around your players friends and school classmates.

The MOST IMPORTANT success in getting our teams organized and practicing is for the parents to make sure and volunteer early to be the Team Manager. We will wait until we have team managers before players are put on a team.

What is the Team Manager?
The team manager is the team’s communicator and organizer. Basic responsibilities are to communicate through email to the parents. The team manager decides on which days and time to practice, where to practice, signing up for free practice fields at our facility, picks up and hands out the team uniforms and assigns the snack duties to a parent each game. The rest of the teams parents, up to 4, help coach the team. Little League provides online instructional video, coaching tips and a booklet to help out each team. We’ve found the most successful teams have a good team manager that sends out a weekly email to the team.

First Step for Team Manager?
Register your Team! We have a simple form where you list your contact information and also your player and friends, if any, to be on the same team. Many parents just list their player on the form and we’ll add the remaining players to complete your team.

We offer a very affordable registration fee. There are no other costs such as gate fees or umpire fees.  Parents will need to purchase personal items such as a jersey, hat, glove, baseball pants, bat, or batting helmet.   At the conclusion of each regular season, we schedule a tournament for the players to get this introduction to winning a team trophy if they place first or second in the tournament.

Parents attend each game and many want to be on the field helping out. To do this you must register as a volunteer. You can do this during player registration or on our volunteer registration page.

Tulsa National Little League supplies each team with a batting tee, practice and game balls. The team will need at least 1 bat to share and 4 helmets. Helmets are required at practice and games, at all times when batting and optional when playing as the pitcher or first baseman on defense. A catcher behind the plate is optional, if a catcher is used then they must be in full catchers gear.

Parents are strongly encouraged to become involved in this introduction level of Little League. After completing a Little League volunteer application and passing a required national background check, parents may become involved in practices, and be eligible as coaches, managers, umpires, local league board members and other volunteer positions within the league.

Now it's time to sign up to be a team manager and sign up your player! We are Little League!
