5-6 Year Old Coach Pitch Division

Updated Tuesday June 4, 2019 by WD Baseball.

The Coach Pitch Division (MVP League)

MVP League- this division is for 5-6 year olds (Going into Kindergarten and 1st grades) and uses an official size safety ball (softer ball) is used.  Fundamentals are the emphasis in this program where kids begin to learn the rules of the game, proper throwing, fielding, hitting, and sportsmanship.  Coaches do the pitching in this league. 

Practice dates and times for this division vary and are dependent on the coach and availability of fields.  Practice times will be determined and communicated by your team's coach and will not be known until early April. 

Game nights Will be on Wednesdays for the 2019 Season starting in Late May through July.  The published schedule goes to the end of July with the purpose of getting in as many games as possible.  If inclement weather cancels a game, an attempt to reschedule the game at the end of the season will be made, but is not guaranteed and is dependent on teams being able to field enough players.

6 Year olds (Kindergarden) who are interested in being evaluated to play up in 7-8 year old division, should register for the 7-8 year old division.  If player is not selected to play up after being evaluated they will be placed in the 5-6 Division.  Please note: 1st priority for placement in the 7-8 year old division is for kids currently in 1st or 2nd grade, so there is no guarantee that any Kindergarden players will be able to move up regardless of how they do in the evaluation.
