This league is for girls and boys ages 5.  It is a fun league where all players will bat from a tee, learn to catch, throw and be a part of team exemplifying good sportsmanship.

 
There will be 2 games per week - 1 game each weekday  (day will vary) and 1 game on the weekend.  All games are played on Academy Field.   The season starts after opening day parade on April 30.

Teams are typically set up the last week of March/early April.
