Please be aware that we do not allow underage children to play up a division unless they tryout for an OBA or PWSA team and make the team.  We will be verifying registrants with their birth year before teams are made.  This is done to support the health and development of our players and our league.  Thank you for your cooperation.
 
Jr. Rookie

Jr. Rookie is a fun oriented introduction to baseball. Played on Saturday mornings, coaches and volunteers teach basic baseball skills by rotating the children through different drills. As part of the development each week a t-ball game is played as a wind up activity.  Each player has a chance to hit and field. Jr. Rookie is for children born in 2018-2019 for the 2024 season
The  Jr. Rookie program typically plays Saturdays from 9am - 10am beginning the Saturday before the May long weekend and goes until the end of July (No play on long weekends).

Int. Rookie

Intermediate Rookie is a fun oriented division that is played on Saturday mornings.  The players are placed on teams with a dedicated coach.   The program is set up to practice on one Saturday and play a game the next Saturday with another in house Intermediate team. This format will continue throughout the season.
This, however, can only work if we have 4 dedicated volunteers put their name forward to coach. This format will prepare the players for the transition from Intermediate Rookie to Senior Rookie or U9 fastball. Intermediate Rookie is for children born in 2017 for the 2024 season.
Our Intermediate Rookie program typically plays Saturdays from 10am-11am. The season starts the Saturday prior to the May long weekend and finishes at the end of July.  The program does not run on long weekends.
