The ages given for each division below are general guidelines. It is at the discretion of coaches and parents that players may play up a year or down a year based on ability.
Tee-Ball, Ages 4-5- Often a family's first introduction to baseball/softball, providing a Tee-Ball experience that is grounded in fun, fitness, and fundamentals is key to growing a child's love for the game.
Machine Pitch Instructional, Ages 6 to 7 - This program is designed to increase a batter's awareness of live baseball action. Using a machine increases the pitch-by-pitch accuracy and consistency of speed, which allows the batter to predict better when to swing. This division helps the kids become better prepared to hit a moving ball and eases the transition to competitive divisions. The program focus is on basic fielding and base running. Wins/Losses and balls/strikes are not counted.
Machine Pitch Competitive, Ages 7 to 8 - When the child is seven, parents are able to determine whether their child is ready for competitive action or non-competitive. This program is designed to increase a batter's awareness of live baseball action. Using a machine increases the pitch-by-pitch accuracy and consistency of speed, which allows the batter to predict better when to swing. This division helps the kids become better hitters when they start facing kid pitch when they turn nine years of age. The program focus is on basic fielding and base running. Wins/Losses and balls/strikes are counted.
Minor League/Pee Wee, Ages 9 to 10 - The diamond used is a 60-foot diamond, and the pitching distance is 46 feet. Players should be able to run the bases with an understanding of how to score a double or triple and understand coaches' base signals. While players will always work on the basics throughout life, their focus will involve concepts of double plays, force outs, and getting the lead runner. Catchers will begin learning to block the ball and control base advancement. Players will begin to understand that everyone has a job to do in every single play. Emphasis will be placed on pitcher development as this is a key factor for teams that do well.
Minor League/Farm, Ages 11 to 12 - The diamond used is a 75-foot diamond, and the pitching distance is 50 feet. Players should be able to understand all basic base running and will include the direction of stealing bases. Pitchers will learn pick-off moves and keep the runner close to their home base. At this particular age, combined with the base lengths, defensive outs utilizing the catcher do not often happen; therefore, the focus is on base control and limiting the base runner's advancement.
Junior/Senior League, Ages 13 to 18 (Mustang 13-14 and Pony 15-18) - The diamond size can range with a 54-foot mound regulation (60'6"), and bases are 80 or 90 feet. While players will always work on the basics, fielders should have a working grasp on double plays, cut-offs, and defensive strategies for limiting offensive base advancement. Pitchers will continue controlling the runners, as will the catchers. Catchers will start understanding how to control the entire defense by calling plays and pitches.
