For the spring we offer the following sports:
We offer coed T-ball for 3-4 year old boys and girls and coed Coach Pitch Baseball for 5-6 year old boys and girls. Both of these age groups use a safety core baseball with an emphasis on fun, developing fundamental skills, and developing a love for the game. Our next age group is 7-8 year old boys. 7-8 year old boys baseball is played using a Louisville Slugger Ultimate Pitching Machine. In this age group, the players will learn fundamental skills and begin to learn how the game is played in a healthy competitive environment.
Boys aged 9-10 years old will transition to kid pitch baseball with progression of skills and rules of the game. 11-12 year old boys make the transition to playing baseball under regular baseball rules on a smaller field (50 foot mound, 70 foot bases). Our 13-15 year old and 16-18 year old age groups will start later in the season and will play on a regulation size field (60 foot mound, 90 foot bases).
Our 7-12 year old programs are sanctioned under Cal Ripken and our 13-18 year old programs are sanctioned under Babe Ruth.
There will be no skill evaluations for our T-ball (3-4 year olds) and Coach Pitch (5-6 year olds) age groups. Skill evaluations for our 7-8, 9-10, and 11-12 year old boys will be on Saturday, March 7 at Huffman Park. Skill evaluations for our 13-18 year old boys will be held on Saturday, April 18 at Huffman Park.
For girls, we offer softball for ages 7-12. Our 7-8 year olds will play using the Louisville Slugger Ultimate Pitching Machine. Our 7-8 year old age group will focus on learning the basic fundamentals of softball and learning the rules of the game in a healthy competitive environment. Our 9-10 year and 11-12 year old girls will play kid pitch softball. Our softball program is sanctioned under Babe Ruth.
Skill evaluations for our 7-8, 9-10, and 11-12 year old girls will be on Saturday, March 7 at Huffman Park.
We are sorry to inform you that we will not be offering Lacrosse at Mountain View Recreation in the spring of 2015 due to various reasons.

We are still keeping open the option of offering the sport in 2016 if there is enough interest in the community.
