GOLDEN EAGLE PONY SHETLAND DIVISION

GOLDEN EAGLE PONY BASEBALL SHETLAND DIVISION is an instructional league to teach four, five and six-year-old players the fundamentals of baseball by the simplest method possible - letting them play the game.  Emphasis must be on instruction, and SHETLAND Division coaches are allowed on the field to offer instruction during games.  The rules require that players be given the opportunity to try different positions, and that all of them get to play in every game.

SHETLAND Division provides an excellent opportunity to teach basic catching, throwing, batting and fielding, and a love of the game of baseball without making the experience a course of intensified instruction. The best approach is to let the teams play with little thought to victory or defeat, but merely for the joy of participation while, at the same time, learning the fundamentals of teamwork, group discipline and sportsmanship.
