Again this summer, South Kingstown Little League will be holding its Training and Development (TAD) program for boys and girls ages 5 - 11. TAD is a 3 week long summer baseball and softball program at Tuckertown Park that focuses on baseball and softball fundamentals and sportsmanship. The program will consist of practices, games, and special clinics on specific elements including hitting, pitching and fielding. This year the clinics will be run by Steve Breitbach, Assistant Baseball Coach at URI, and will be assisted by athletes from local area high schools. In Breitbach's time at URI, he has coached three All-Americans, six All-Region selections, 17 All-New England picks, two Atlantic 10 Players of the Year, 21 All-Conference honorees and 13 players who have either been drafted or inked professional contracts. Please see our flyer for more information. Family discounts are available.
The following programs are not affiliated with South Kingstown Little League, but are included as a service to our families.
