U8 Division is a developmental league focused on the league’s mission of improving a player’s baseball fundamentals, skills and knowledge of the game. Promoting good sportsmanship, team play and fun are the most important lessons we try and instill in our athletes.
We will actively assist in helping our players understand the game more strategically, stress learning baseball fundamentals and development of core skills for each and every participating child. As all players develop at different times, it is important as a league and coaches that we work with all players to ensure that they develop a lifelong love of the “game”.
The U8 program is a transitional division. It is a continuation of the U7 program with the exceptions of player pitching and more attention to the rules of the game. There is a gradual progression to the calling of balls and strikes, however no official umpires are used. No scores are kept as our emphasis continues to be on the instruction of the game. We ensure that all players play equal amounts of time and have exposure to all positions. Our ultimate goal is for the players to have fun and learn the game.
Please review the League Code of Conduct with your child. These rules are used through the season and are enforced. The rules pertain to coaches, players and fans.
