Update on Divisions for 2019

We are nearing the end of registrations for 2019, therefore we have news of the division breakdown based on the numbers. 

Currently there are fewer than 10 Pee Wee players registered.  Last year we had almost an equal number of Pee Wee and Minors division players so we combined them.  Based on that experience we wanted to more evenly distribute the younger players and therefore the decision for 2019 was a compromise.

Player Divisions will be setup using new cutoff dates:

  • Minors/Pee Wee Division will be from birth year 2007 through May 31st, 2010*
  • Coach Pitch will be players born on/after June 1st, 2010, through August 31st, 2012
  • Tee Ball remains unchanged - Players must be 5 years old by May 1st, 2019 and or be younger than 7 on August 31st, 2019

 

*This age change allows for a better fit with the developing players in the top division as well as giving each team 2 or 3 players who can play pitcher and/or catcher effectively for a portion of each game.  We will use the Minors rules for 2019, which limits base stealing and let's us concentrate on developing ball players rather than past balls and stealing around the bases.
