Pre-K and Kindergarteners will start with T-ball.  At this level, the players will get an introduction to the game of baseball. They will begin learning the basic rules and start developing their throwing, hitting and fielding skills. T-ball is recommended for all first year Kindergarten/Pre-K players (first year of organized team ball).

More advanced Kindergarteners and 1st Graders should register for machine pitch.  At this level, kids will continue to learn the key elements and skills of the game and will hit off a pitching machine.  Machine pitch is recommended for 1st Graders and Kindergarteners with at least one year of experience in organized team ball.

2nd Grader players will experience a combination of the pitching machine and player pitch.  Players will start the season with machine pitch, and transition to player pitch as their skills develop.

The season typically starts towards the beginning of May, but this is weather dependent.

Practice and game nights will be twice per week. All levels offer 8-10 league games.
