*Brief CBO League Descriptions:

T-Ball:  This division is for 4-6 year olds (Currently in 4K & 5K) and uses an official size safety ball (softer ball).  Fun is the emphasis in this program! Kids will  begin to learn the rules of the game, proper throwing, fielding, hitting, and sportsmanship.  A tee is used over home plate to teach consistency and the basics of batting.  For practices each field will have two teams.  One team will start on the infield and the other team will start in the outfield switching halfway through practice.  The team that is listed first will start in the infield.  For games each player will bat every inning.  Defense is encouraged to try to make an out, but will not be limited to 3 outs.  Each player will be given equal playing time and the opportunity to play all positions.  Parents are encouraged to help at this age level and we will keep team rosters as small as possible to increase efficiency.  Practices and games will be Monday and Wednesday evenings for 1 hour.

Coach Pitch:  This division is for 6-8 year olds (Currently in 1st & 2nd grades) and uses an official size safety ball (softer ball).  Fundamentals are the emphasis in this program where kids begin to learn the rules of the game, proper throwing, fielding, hitting, and sportsmanship.  Coaches do the pitching in this league and each player will be given 6 pitches or 3 strikes.  There is no limit to the number of foul balls on the 6th pitch or 3rd strike.  This league will use continuous batting order meaning everyone present will be in the lineup. If a player has to leave early due to circumstances beyond his control, his name will be skipped when it is his turn to bat.  Teams will play 9 players defensively using 4 outfielders and no player as catcher.  For safety, helmets must be worn from the time a player leaves the dugout until they return.  The ball will become dead once the lead runner is contained and play has stopped.  Runners may advance only one basebase on an overthrow.  No runner may advance when the pitcher has control of the ball. The pitcher is defined as the player on the mound and not the Pitching Coach. Control of the ball is defined as player pitcher controlling ball in glove and within 6 feet of Pitching Coach.  An inning will be over when a team scores 6 runs or 3 outs are recorded.  There will be no walks, free bases, or stealing.  Each player will be given equal playing time and the opportunity to play all positions.   Practices and games will be Monday and Wednesday evenings for 1 hour.
