Baseball Divisions

Tee Ball
For children league age 4 - 6. Our league is focused on the basics of baseball. This includes proper positioning in the field, running bases, learning where to throw the ball and proper form for batting. Scores are not kept and importance is placed on team work and good sportsmanship.

AA
Youth league age 7 – 8. Coach assisted, kid-pitch baseball. Children learn how to pitch and how to hit off of a live pitcher. When a player pitcher reaches 4 balls in the count, the coach steps in to pitch. Children continue to be coached in the field during play and develop playing skills. Five innings are played or a two-hour limit – whichever comes first. Coaches continue to emphasize teamwork and good sportsmanship.

AAA
Youth league age 9 – 10. Kid-pitch competitive play. At this level children will start learning the finer details of the game. This includes; stealing bases, following signals, strategies in the field and more.

Majors
Youth league age 11 – 12. Children are introduced to higher expectations of play and are able to demonstrate a high level of sportsmanship and responsibility. 

Intermediate (50/70)
Youth league age 11-13. The Intermediate Division was formed by Little League to bridge the transition to Juniors. It is available to accommodate players whose skills permit rules closer to conventional baseball (leading off, pick-offs, balks), but on a field not as large. You may not “play up” to this division. You must be 11-13 years of age.

Juniors
Youth league age 13 – 14. More advanced play. This is the next step before high school baseball.

Seniors
The Seniors Baseball Division is for participants ages 15-18, using a conventional 90-foot diamond with a pitching distance of 60 feet, 6 inches.
