The program is designed for players ages 5 through 15 years old:
- T-Ball League – ages 5 and 6
- Rookie League – ages 7 and 8
- Minor League – ages 9 and 10
- Major League – ages 11 and 12
- Senior League – ages 13, 14, and 15
Our Recreation program has 2 seasons: Spring and Fall. The Spring Season typically begins last week in January and ends first week of May. Scores and standings are kept in the Spring (it is the more competitive of the two leagues), and coaches may opt to have set-positions. Ages 7-15 are subject to an evaluation and draft for a competitive balance between teams. Requests for coaches and teammates are not allowed for these ages. Our Fall Season, in contrast, is non-competitive and concentrates more on the instructional aspect. Scores and standings are not kept, so coaches can move kids around to learn and play different positions.
