Divisions



BASEBALL & SOFTBALL
 

 

T-BALL
(*Baseball Only: League age 4-6)

The philosophy behind T-Ball is fun fun fun! These are the kids that will hopefully be the future of our higher divisions, and this is the time when we hope they become infected with the love of the game. The games are non-competitive. There is no score keeping and the emphasis is solely on creating a fun and rewarding atmosphere where the kids can be themselves and hopefully pick up a few skills throughout the season.  

 

COACH PITCH
(*Baseball: League age 6-7   Softball: League Age 6-8)

At the Coach Pitch level, the games are still non-competitive with no score keeping. The individual coaches will pitch the ball slowly to the kids, and they can get used to a ball coming at them. The emphasis is still on having fun with the game and continuing to develop more skills that they will use later.

 

MACHINE PITCH
(*Baseball Only: League age 7-9)

Machine Pitch is a continuation of the coach pitch philosophy, with a few differences. The kids will be playing on a bit larger field and more emphasis will be placed on developing more of the core skills that will help them in future play. The ball is pitched to the kids with a spring loaded machine, so the ball comes in a bit quicker than in coach pitch. This is also considered a non-competitive division with no score keeping and the emphasis on having fun and learning team play and more in-depth position fielding.

 

MINORS
(*Baseball: League age 7-11    Softball: League Age 8-10)

The Minors division is the first truly competitive division, where the players are evaluated by the managers before the season and then selected by draft onto each team. The practices typically become a bit more frequent and structured. Play is focused on continuing to develop the love of the game along with more of the core skills needed to be successful. This is also a preparatory division that will hopefully get the kids ready to play in the Majors division. There is an end of season playoff with an eventual champion. Players from this division that meet the age requirements are also eligible for All Stars play!

 

MAJORS
(*Baseball: League age 9-12    Softball League Age 10-12)

The Majors is the highest level of little league play. Players are again evaluated by the managers and then selected for each team through a draft process. This is a  competitive division which includes end of season playoffs and an eventual champion. The emphasis, as always, is on having fun, developing the love for the game and also on developing team play. The practice and game schedule will again be a bit more frequent and focused. Players from this division that meet the age requirements are also eligible for All Stars play!


* All Baseball divisions are considered co-ed and are available to girls and boys.
