T-BALL-This league will focus on the basics of baseball. Teams will play each other. Lots of parent support is needed for this level during games and practices. Players will be pre-K to maximum grade 1. Practices will take place Mondays and Wendesdays directly after school.
MINORS- This league will be kid/coach pitch or machine pitch (there is no power at the Twisp field). There will no longer be a T available. Players will be a minimum grade 1 and maximum grade 4. Please make sure if your first grader wants to play up they are ready for no T and comforatble hitting the ball (or trying to).
MAJORS-This league will be kid-pitch. 4th grade will be allowed to try out this year. If you are a fourth grade parent and would like to have your child play Majors, sign them up. The skills day will be the opportunity for coaches to try and even out the skills for the Majors leagues. This year there will be a travelling team competing in the Okanogan League, travel will be local. Try out dates are below. Travelling team is only open to 5th and 6th graders.
A few activities coming up-we will email out dates as they are confirmed.

Opening Day Celebration will be either Saturday April 21 or 28th (TBD)! Come out for hot dogs, team pictures, demonstration games!
Please be patient, the folks setting this all up are all volunteers with busy lives and are making a solid effort to get us on the field playing and having fun. There is lots to do to get our baseball league running including fundraising, web setup, registration processing, gear, uniforms and field scheduling. We need help, we really do, so please consider volunteering some of your time, it will really make a difference!
We are looking for coaches and folks to help out at all levels of play. We cannot get the teams on the field until we have coaches set (which defines alot about how fields get scheduled) so please let us know very soon!!
