Instructional League President

(Kindergarten and 1st grade) 

The Instructional league focuses on learning rather than competition; coaches pitch with a "flex" baseball. No scores are kept. The goal is to have fun and learn about baseball.  Practices start late April / early May. Games start around Memorial day and go through approximately the second week in July.  Games are held during the week and on Saturdays.
