There are four basic baseball skills: catching, hitting, throwing and base running. These four are collectively called baseball drills. Children learning of baseball drills enhance appreciation, enjoyment and safety practices in the game. The GHBA acknowledges that all children develop at a different pace. As such, placement of players is based on proficiency of certain skills. Here are the GHBA divisions and what players can expect to learn in each:
The Single A Division, also known as Rookie division, focuses on learning the four basic skills. Knowledge of the sport of baseball and the orientation of a baseball field is also taught at this level. Players are expected to be proficient in at least catching and throwing before advancement to the next division.
Players in the Double A division will learn to become stronger fielders, batters, and strategic base runners. Increased knowledge of the sport of baseball will be gained as game rules are more strongly applied. In the Double A division, depending on player skill level, a mixture of coach pitch and kid pitch will be allowed.
Players in the Triple A division will learn to become stronger baseball players. Instincts are further developed and multiple skills are combined for competitive baseball games. The Triple A division is kid-pitch baseball.
