Little League is a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching kids
the fundamentals of baseball in a safe and fun environment.
Our league has five levels.
is for kids 4-6 = is a great way for them to start learning how the
game is played. T-ball is played with a "soft" covered ball. T-ball is
very instructional, with coaches on the field, and every kid getting a
chance to play every position.
is for kids 6-8 = and some 9 years old who are interested in learning
more about the game. In farm league the coaches pitch to simulate the
"live" ball kids will encounter at the higher levels of baseball. Farm
League is played with a "soft" covered ball. Farm League begins to
stress some of baseball's nuance, individual skills and team play.
is for kids 7-12 = who are ready to start playing baseball with the
hard ball, and kids pitching. Minor league is still an instructional
atmosphere, with the kids learning on the field in real game action.
Kids will get exposed to many of the positions on the field and get a
chance to hit in a continuous batting order. Minor league will help to
improve skills, to be ready to tryout for the LL Majors in the future.
With the hopes of making the games and practices fun and productive.
Little League Minors ends the season with playoffs that include every
team ending with a championship game and awards.
Little League Majors is for kids 9-12 (Everyone 10 yrs old and older must try out- If not selected players will be put on a minor league team)= To
be selected to the Majors, players must tryout. Once a child is
selected for a team they remain on that team until they leave the
program. Little League Majors is a fun and competitive brand of
baseball. Kids play at an exceedingly high level, and form close team
and personal bonds over a four month season culminating in our playoffs
and championship game..
