Class Descriptions and Age Groups

The Dugout Rookies offers a variety of classes in our Northbrook facility to help young children develop skills on and off the field while learning to play the game of baseball.

Class sessions are 6-10 weeks in length depending on the time of year.   You can sign up for a full 6 – 10 week session or you can sign up for the remainder of the current session.  Sibling discounts are available.  Contact us through the contact page if you have more than one interested player in your family!  Please also note that class sizes are limited, so register today!

  • Pros (Ages 4-5)
    In our Pros Program coaches teach the fundamental skills of baseball such as hitting and catching. A combination of games and activities are used to instill the core aspects of the sport. The actions, movements and behaviors of baseball are expanded through the Pros program. The players are now much more independent and are confident in  showing mom and dad at home what they learned at the Dugout.
  • Stars (Ages 6-7)
    In our Stars program the players get a real feel for the game of baseball through more advanced skill work and small sided games.  An emphasis of competing will also be introduced. There will be a variety of fun games and contests to test the player’s skills and evaluate their growth.  The coaches will educate the players on how to celebrate a victory and also accept not winning by applauding others who perform well. By the end of the Stars program the Dugout graduates will be abundantly  prepared for U8 travel baseball if they so choose to but also that much more advanced in experiencing and partaking in life.
