Quickball
Ages 4-6

Quickball is a version of baseball developed by USA Quickball (and Ambler Sports Academy owner, Shannon Gunby) and used extensively by the Cal Ripken organization to teach all diamond skills in a more active, engaging way. Anyone can play and teamwork is emphasized on all levels. Each player gets to try for a single, double, triple and home run in every game! There's also scoring on both offense and defense and anyone can succeed regardless of skill level.

It teaches and strengthens baseball skills by offering multiple hitting, fielding and throwing chances for all players during each game. Innovative concepts such as timed team at bats, rapid batter rotation and two-way scoring keep games moving and get everyone involved - critical elements in grabbing the attention of today's kids.

A representative of USA Quickball will be on the field for most games.
