Developmental Ages 5 & 6

Updated Monday January 18, 2016 by kevin taylor.

Developmental is designed to give kids their first exposure to competitive Baseball. This division will make use of a Tee and Machine depending on your Childs level. 10 Players will take the field and 3 outs will be enforced. Coaches will be allowed on the field and we will keep score. Games will be 1 & 15 minutes or 6 innings. This league will maintain a degree of flexibility so Coaches can make decisions based on your Childs progress. Teams will play a maximum of 2 games per week on week nights, games will be either 530 to 645pm or 645pm to 8pm. Optimist will make every effort to schedule as few late games as possible. Practices, in the beginning, will be 2 days a week until the season starts. Once the season starts practices will be on weekends only at the Coaches discretion. This league will have tryouts in early March and players will be divided up amongst teams with an emphasis on balance. Optimist is actively seeking Coaches for this league, so if interested please send an email to kevinoffsite@gmail.com.
