MALIBU─The city of Malibu has indicated that the deadline to register for the Coed Coach Pitch Baseball and Girls Coach Pitch Softball programs is Friday, February 7. According to the city of Malibu, each league must have a minimum of 18 participants registered by the deadline.
The Baseball and Softball programs offer opportunities for boys and girls between the ages of 4 to 7 to learn the game of baseball or softball. In each turn at-bat, players will get five pitches from their own coach. If they are unable to hit off the pitch, a tee will be used to help foster success.
Practices will be held once a week on Thursdays or Fridays at Malibu schools, and games are scheduled on Saturdays at Malibu Bluffs Park, March 7 through May 16. There will be no games scheduled April 11 through April 18.
The practice day and location will be selected by the volunteer parent coach, and the game schedule will be given following the registration deadline. The league registration fee is $150 per player and includes a jersey, picture package, and end-of-program award. Registrations received after February 7 will cost $175 per player and will be accepted only if space is still available.
