TOWLL DIVISION’S

Tee-Ball for Boys and Girls: League Age 4 to 6 Year Olds 
    T-Ball is for boys and girls who want to learn the fundamentals of throwing, hitting, fielding, sportsmanship and teamwork. A softer baseball is used during practices and games. In Tee-Ball, players learn how to hit a ball off a batting tee, running the bases and learning what the positions on the field are called. In our league's tee-ball program, players hit a ball off a batting tee to learn proper hitting mechanics for the first few games of the season. They are then introduced to coach pitch in the latter half. Players will receive "live" pitches to attempt to hit, but if unsuccessful, the Tee is brought back for reinforcement. Rules of the game may be varied to accommodate the need for teaching. The primary goals of Tee-Ball are to instruct children in the fundamentals of baseball and to allow them to experience the value of team work, therefore no scores or standings are kept. Rosters may be composed of between 10 and 20 players, but our league typically has rosters in the 10-15 range. Practices are held once per week prior to opening day, then it’s usually 2 or 3 games per week (1 weeknight and 1 weekend game)  The season generally comprises of approximately 18 games and no standings or scores are kept.  By local option, a player who is league age 6 for the current season and has played a year in Tee-Ball may be "moved up" to the Instructional Division 

Instructional for Boys and Girls: League Age 6 to 8 Year Olds 
   In these programs coaches focus on throwing, fielding & hitting fundamentals and mechanics. During games, coaches live pitch up to 5-balls to every batter until a hit, 5-pitches or an out is recorded. A softer baseball/softball is used during practices and games. Instructional Division is typically for players league aged 7-8. EXCEPTION: Participants league age 6 are permitted to advance to the Instructionall Coach-Pitch Division after participation in Tee-Ball for one year. By local option, some of the 8-year-olds could "play up" in the Minor divisions. This decision is made entirely by the league's player agent and board of directors. Rosters may be composed of between 12 and 20 players, but our league typically has rosters in the 12-15 range. Practices are held once per week with 1 game playing during the week and 1 game on Saturday’s. The season generally comprises of approximately 12 games and no standings or scores are kept. 


Minor Baseball for Boys: Mostly League Age 9 to 11 Year Olds 
   Minor Baseball is for boys with experience playing baseball. It continues to be an instructional league and further expands on pitching/catching and advanced playing techniques.  The Minor Baseball Division program is typically for players ages 9-11. However, by local option, some of the 8-year-olds could "play up" in the Minor Division. This decision is made entirely by the league's player agent and board of directors. Rosters may be composed of between 12 and 20 players, but our league typically has rosters in the 12 player range. Although this division operates with increased competitiveness, there is still a focus on personal development and encouragement. The season generally comprises of approximately 15-20 games and standings and scores are kept. All participants must attend an evaluation process for placement or drafted by the major leagues.

Question:

What if I want my son/daughter to play up in the next age group?

Answer:

  Generally a player wishing to move up must either (a) have already played in the division he/she would be in based upon current age for two years; and/or (b) pose a safety risk to other players in that division.  An additional cost could be charged.

Question:
How often are practices/games, and are they usually on specific days of the week?

Answer:
There are no set times for practice or games we do play Monday thru Saturday.  Schedules will not be done until we know how many teams.  You can expect once season starts in April you will play two to three games a week until mid June. I would expect one practice per week but it all depends on how many teams and field availability.
