So after taking my almost 3 year old boy outside to practice hitting a baseball, I'm realizing that I am NOT the person to teach him. I don't do sports, and I'm only going to teach him incorrectly--embarrassing for a boy!

So where in Atascocita or close by can I sign him up for T-ball? He'll be three in February.

I'm interested in signing my son up too...he's 4.5 though

YMCA starts T-Ball at 3yrs. My son started Soccer at 3 and T-Ball at 4 (I think Soccer was a little easier for him to comprehend - t-ball is very confusing for such a young age even at 4yrs because the kids never know what to do w/the ball once it is hit and they all just run after it and lay on it - It's funny to watch but not sure how much he got out of it and he thought soccer was much more fun basically because you just kick the ball in one direction or the other). If your interested in Soccer we have played YMCA and Texas Heatwave (Atasocita/Kingwood) and have had better luck w/TX Heatwave. As far t-ball, we have family in Crosby and the price was a little better considering my son was only 4 (and he had 2 cousins on the same team)

Approximate but could be a little more next season - should start signing up now/soon
YMCA - I think it runs about $95
TX Heatwave - $80
Crosby Little League - about $130

Prices above include Jersey's and parts of the uniforms

I am laughing so hard at this! I could totally picture my little guy doing exactly that.

Is there any place that could teach him (and me) the basics of the games so that I'd know how to practice with him?

I was the last one picked for every team in grade school. I never cared, but I hear that it is devastating for boys.

My 3 1/2 year old played T-ball at the YMCA last spring and soccer this past fall. Both were great experiences-very organized, and can't say enough great things about the coaches! I couldn't have done it! Tball was hilarious, as once the ball was hit, they all swarmed the ball and there was always at least one meltdown on the field! By the middle of the season, they were really starting to get the idea of what was going on! Soccer was swarm the ball at the start of the season, but the kids were starting to pass the ball towards the end and the games got really good towards the end of the season!

So Wendy, would you recommend putting a newly three in both?

I really have no idea about this kind of thing.

Oh, and I want to make sure that he doesn't end up in a league that has anything on Sunday mornings.

I do not know of any place that works w/kids on just skills. It is a ton more fun for the kids to be envolved w/the sport and remember all the 3-4yr olds will be learning the sport at the same time - it's just getting them to understand what to do (I went w/Soccer because my son loved to kick the ball.) Some places if you volunteer to Coach (YMCA & Heatwave have volunteer parents coaching) give you short lessons on skills to practice w/your team - not sure if they would allow you to do this if your child is not signed up to play a sport.

I would not recommend signing the child up for both sports to start - may be more confusing and child may loose interest in the sports all together due to frustration plus you will be worn out going to all the practice/games. Both YMCA and Heatwave games are on Sat mornings but practices are usually sometime during the week (evening).

FYI - Crosby has "Fall Ball" t-ball (this is not as strict and more fun/cheaper $50) - they are basically playing a game but it is only 1month instead of a regular season 2-2 1/2 months. Crosby ball is played during the week usually 2 games per wk.

We do Fall Soccer, Spring T-Ball and currently Winter Basketball and my son just turned 5 last month.

I wouldn't even put him in t-ball until he can throw and catch. Work on that first.

Alli,

Have you considered BSF? It meets at 2nd Baptist on Wednesdays.
