Our Local summer league is for non-travel players between ages 8 and 11 (exceptions on a case-by-case basis for 7 and 12 year olds). Games are played on a 46/60 diamond following the minor league rules. All games will be during the week and are held in the evenings. This gives families a chance to regroup after camps and work. The season will start at the end of June and end in the beginning of August. Don’t worry if you are going on vacation or have conflicts – we expect players to miss some of the season. Teams are balanced by age; everyone will get a hat and jersey and the fee is $150.
This year, we are happy to announce some changes to the program. These changes are based on the success we saw in the fall season and feedback from parents over the past few summers. Here is the format:
First hour: skills-based practice run by an experienced former player or coach.
Second hour: the coach will umpire a scrimmage between the two teams. Each team will hit for 30 minutes and field for 30 minutes.
5:30 arrival and stretch
5:45-6:40 teams will be led in a skills-based practice. (Groundballs, fly balls, hitting throwing etc.)
6:45 Game will start with each team hitting for 25-30 minutes each while opposing team fields and then flip flop for the second half. This will save time with players running on and off the field each ½ inning maximizing repetitions for all the players.
Game ends at 7:45.
At the end of the season we will have two-hour time limit games only for the playoffs with teams playing a minimum of two games.
