In T-Ball, players hit a ball off a batting tee. The primary goals of T-Ball are to instruct children in the fundamentals of baseball and to allow them to experience the value of teamwork. No live pitching is permitted in this division. There are no umpires, final scores, or standings for this division.

One game per week on Friday or Saturday; min 1 practice per week.


Minor C – (Machine Pitch) Ages 6-7

This division is for younger players with less experience.

Our Minor C Division is machine pitch program. At this level, players begin to hit a pitched ball.  Up to two coaches are on the field during games to encourage/instruct players. Players are taught game basics and prepare to play at a faster pace. There are no umpires, final scores, or standings for this division.

Majors – (Player Pitch ) Ages 11-12

Therefore, the primary mission of the Major League curriculum will be to leverage the skills of each player in a competitive environment while further developing each player’s skill set.
