TEEBALL

League Ages 4 -6

This is our traditional softball teeball division. Prior to playing at the next level, kids need a year of teeball to develop their skills. The experience is grounded in fun, fitness, and fundamentals while also being a key to growing a child’s love for the game.

COACH PITCH

League Ages 6 – 8

Upon successful completion of a season of teeball, kids move into the Rookie Division. This is a coach pitch divisions played on normal size fields. The goal of this division is to begin teaching the kids the positions and developing their live pitch hitting.

PLAYER PITCH

League Ages 8 – 12

Player Pitch is “Upper Division” softball where games are played to the fullest extent. Kids are drafted by coaches to teams for competition. This is a purely kid pitch division and the games are real softball games, with minimal coach interaction on the field like the Lower Divisions. Kids in this division generally have the ability to start making throws across the infield. Kids are exposed to pitching for the first time and batters are exposed to kids pitching for the first time, also. There are walks and strikeouts, pitch counts, steals, and everything else that makes softball fun.
