This division is for boys and girls, ages 9*, 10 and 11. It is designed to teach more advanced skills as a final step in preparation for movement up into the Major League Division. Skills developed here will be beyond those found in Minors. The focus will shift to more advanced and competitive game situations in this division with advanced concentration on specialty positions like pitching and catching. The diamond used is a 60-foot diamond and the pitching distance is 46 feet. Teams will meet up to three times per week with weekday and Saturday practices. Once the season begins, there will be games every Sunday and mid-way through the season, games will be played on weeknights as well. Saturday practices will continue until the end of the season. There is a playoff tournament for all teams at the end of the regular season.
