Tee Ball – Ages 5-6. No tryouts are held. Players are assigned to teams. This league will utilize a tee for the first few weeks and then progress to coach pitch as the skills of the players improve.

This league has been playing a 14 game season.  
Minor League – Ages 7-11. This league is for players who are not chosen for the Major League by way of its draft or are too young for the Majors.

All players in this age bracket who were not on the roster of a Major League team at the end of the previous season must tryout, including those who were on Minor League rosters.
