2nd Grade, 3rd & 4th Grade, and 5th
& 6th Grade leagues will be offered. All league matches will be played on Saturdays and Monday
evenings if needed. All
teams will play a round robin schedule and are guaranteed a minimum of
six matches. Doubleheaders may be scheduled to reduce travel time
and help avoid schedule conflicts. No league standings are kept.
All children receive equal
playing time. 5th & 6th grade teams use HS substitution
rules. Last year's season began in early/mid-March and ended in
late March/early April. Game
schedules specific to school/communities' needs will be developed to
avoid conficts with basketball or softball. If you coach, please
inform Bob of these potential conflicts so they can be avoided.
