Which division should my child play in?
Tee Ball: This division is for 4 through 6 years old. Focus is on introducing kids to baseball, basic fundamentals and having fun. Kids will bat off the tee or soft pitching for a coach for the entire season.
8U: This division is for players 6-8 years old. The Rookie Division is a development league with the primary focus on learning and teamwork. Kids will bat against a pitching machine.
10U: This division is for players 9-10. Pitching is now done by the players, there is open defensive substitution and a continuous batting order.
12U: This division is for players 11-12. For baseball this is played on the 50/70 baseball field configuration and allows for lead-offs and stealing like mlb to prepare players to make the transition to the bigger fields and rules at age 13.
13U-15U: This division is for player 13-15. Here players transition to a full size baseball field with almost all of the same rules you'd see in a professional game.
