This league is primarily for players ages 4 and 5. They will learn hitting and fielding fundamentals in a supportive team environment. The primary goal is to provide an introduction to the fundamentals of baseball. We have found the experience of being a part of a team, learning to attend scheduled practices and games at this age is helpful in creating a baseline of experience as they progress through our program. We recommend players that are baseball age 4 or complete at least one year of T-Ball.
T-ball teams practice once during week and play one game on the weekends.
This league is primarily for players ages 6 and 7, although players who have advanced beyond the T-ball division may be considered (space permitting).
A pitching machine is used to allow for more hittable balls at the plate and more action in the field. Rookie level introduces live coach pitch part of the way through the season. As a natural part of the program's progression, the use of a pitching machine and coach pitch supports the next step in the baseball players' skills.
We recommend players that are baseball age 6 or 7 complete at least two years of Rookie-level baseball before moving up to the Minors division.
Rookie teams practice once during week and play one game on the weekends, with an option for an additional weekend practice (coach/team dependent).
This league is primarily for players who have advanced beyond the rookie division. When there is sufficient registration numbers, this league may be separated into two divisions, AA and AAA.
Players in the minors league should be at least age 8, or have demonstrated sufficient skill to play at this level.
The AA league will primarily be comprised of those players who are transitioning to the larger baseball field, beginning to grasp key fundamentals such as throwing, fielding, and hitting live pitching, but require more development.
The AAA league will primarily be comprised of players who have fully grasped the key components of play at this division but may not yet be ready for the next field size. Players should have comfort and sufficient skill in throwing, fielding, and hitting live pitching, be able to grasp the key details of game-play, and be able to follow coaching signs.
