Beginner Level - League age 4

Your child:
This is a co-ed league that is stronger with both boys and girls participating. Check the league age of your child here. They must be at least 4 (league age) by August 31st. Kids will practice and play all in 1 hour on 6 Saturday mornings.  No kid will pay attention every minute- and that's okay.

The game:
We have added a new Intro to Tee Ball division this year to make baseball accessible to more children and families.  Kids will start with a wiffle ball off a tee and progress to a "real" ball and bat.  Active parent participation will be needed to ensure the kids have a great time.  Have your child try this if they don't feel ready for Tee Ball but would still like to play.  This is an experimental division and we may adjust the structure of the division based on the number of children who are registered to play and the number of parents who volunteer to help.

Timing:
This begins mid-April and ends on May 30th for a total of 6 Saturdays (no baseball Memorial weekend).  This timing may be adjusted as needed to follow safety or health guidelines regarding Covid-19.

Friends:
We do our best to place kids with schoolmates and/or friends if possible. Families find that this can be a great way for kids to meet some new friends, especially valuable for kids as they move from their old pre-school friends to the big Kindergarten. There is an opportunity in the registration form to make a request to be on the same team as a friend. We do our best to accommodate these requests whenever possible. Sign up early so we can make these considerations before teams are formed.

Our community:
Our league, and specifically the lower divisions, is a reflection of our community. It's run by us parents and we get out of it what we put into it. We try to foster a fun, friendly, and open environment for our kids and families. It's a great place to meet other kids and families during events like pre-season Baseball Fun Day, Opening Day Parade and pictures, Annual Little League Picnic, League Giants (or maybe A's) game, and Closing Day at the San Rafael Pacifics. Our tee-ball division is thriving with our registration numbers more than doubling in the last two years, largely due to the community experience.
