3 Myths that are Destroying the Youth Sports Experience for our Kids

Myth #1, “The Tiger Woods/10,000 Hour Myth:” Your child must specialize as early as possible if he or she wants to play college or pro sports

 

Myth #2 “The 9 Year Old National Champion Myth:” We need to win as soon as possible, as often as possible, travel as far as we need to get games, and only pick and play the kids who help us do that.

 

Myth #3, “Youth Sports is an Investment in a Scholarship:” If my kid specializes, gets on the winning team as early as possible, and I invest in long distance travel, private lessons, and the best gear, I will recoup this investment when college rolls around.

League Overview

Coach Pitch T-Ball    Kindergarten (Ages 5-6)

       Coach Pitched T‐Ball League is generally for Kindergartners or kids that have an understanding of the general rules of baseball.  They also are ready to have a coach pitch to them.   Each team will bat through their entire order for each at- bat. Players with 3 strikes will then hit from a tee.  Outs are via catches or play at a base.

A Ball    1st Grade (Age 7)

      Designed for 1st graders. Will feature machine pitching from the mound, using a ball that is harder than a T‐Ball, but softer than a real baseball. No walks, but can strike out & no catcher.

AA Ball       2nd Grade (Age 8)

AAA Ball    3rd-4th Grade (Ages 9-10)

***All 3rd graders and 4th graders that did not play the previous year in AAA, are REQUIRED to attend the Evaluation Day (generally the following week after the Spring Clinic).  This is in an effort to distribute the talent across the teams and keep all the teams competitive.

Majors   5th-6th Grade (Ages 11-12)

     All 6th graders automatically play in the Majors.  Most 5th graders move up to play Majors unless skills create a safety concern.

All players who register on time will be placed on a team. Players are encouraged to attend spring clinics so coaches can evaluate skills.

**** All 3rd-6th Graders signing up for their 1st year in AAA or Majors MUST participate in an Evaluation on March 20th. The League's intent is to level the skill across the teams in each league.

This session is FREE. Stay tuned for location and times.

If you were on a AAA or Majors team last year, you do not have to participate in the evaluation.
