Youth T-Ball & Coach Pitch
In the spring and fall, Lake Ridge offers T-Ball and Coach Pitch. Players will learn the fundamentals of batting, fielding, throwing, and running the bases.
Both leagues are instructional in nature and emphasize fundamentals and team play over competition.
- LRPRA Soccer and Baseball Fields (Next to Walgreens, Intersection of Old Bridge + Smoketown)
Schedule - Spring 2023
Season Dates: April 16 - June 18
Practices and games take place on Sundays only. The season runs from mid April to mid June for 9 weeks total-- the first 3 Sundays are practices and the following 6 Sundays are games.
The youngest age group (T-Ball) plays first each week starting at 12:00pm, followed by the older age groups (Coach Pitch). Each game is 50 minutes long, with a 10-minute buffer between games for the previous 2 teams to clear out and the next 2 teams to set up. A detailed schedule for your team's specific practice and game times will be created and emailed out to parents at least 2 weeks before the start of the season.
Rain Out Information
Rain-Out Line: (703) 389-5336 *Updated Number 2023*
Since the weather is always changing, the Rain-Out Line is your best tool to check cancellation status. It will be updated at 8:15am before practices/games start for the day if there are any changes. Please listen to the date of the message to ensure it is not an old recording, and save the number in your phone to reference for both sports and swim lessons.
With safety, fairness and field preservation as our priorities, we do our best to follow the same schedule for the day for all teams, but if morning practices/games run and weather worsens significantly later in the day, check the Rain-Out Line 45 minutes before your practice/game to ensure it is still running.
Make-Up: While rained out practices are not made up, rained out games will be added on at the end of the season. Teams will receive an email with game add-on info.
For more information, email or call the Recreation Department at (703) 491-2154.
