Teams & Divisions

T-Ball

T-Ball is for 4-6 year old players. The players are taught the fundamentals in a supportive environment. Half of the season is played with the players hitting off the tee. During the second half of the season coaches softly pitch the ball to the batters. There is no score-keeping. Games are 3-innings or 1-hour, depending on which comes first. There is one practice in addition to one game per week.

Pioneer

Pioneer is for 6-8 year old players. We recommend that players have one year of T-Ball experience before signing up for the Pioneer Division. All games are 3 innings or 1 hour and 15 minutes, depending on which comes first. All games are coach-pitch. There is no score-keeping. There are one-to-two practices and games per week.

 

Farm, Minors, Majors: For Farm, Minors, and Majors divisions, skills and age will determine which division a player is assigned to. All players are required to attend one or two Evaluation Clinics prior to the season starting. Coaches are responsible for proper placement of players. All 12-year olds will be assigned to Majors.

Farm

Farm is for 7-9 year old players with previous baseball experience. Players are evaluated prior to teams forming, and the games are semi-competitive. All games are 6-innings or 1.5 hours, depending on which comes first. There is a larger focus on defensive playing (fielding) and player pitching. Players will be introduced to player pitches. All games are live-pitched by coaches and players. There are typically a minimum of two practices and two games per week.

Minors 

Minors is for 9-11 year old players with previous baseball experience. Players are evaluated prior to teams forming, and the games are moderately competitive. There is a minimum of two practices and two games per week.

Majors

Majors is for players 9-12. All 12-year old players are assigned to the Majors Division unless waived by the President of Sunnyvale Southern Little League. Players are evaluated prior to teams forming, and the games are highly competitive. There are a minimum of two practices and two games per week.

Divisions and Fees:

Fees vary by division and cover uniforms, team equipment, field expenses and snack shack tickets for home games.  All players will receive a shirt and cap that they get to keep; Tball and Pioneer players will also receive pants and socks.  Players in Farm, Minors, Majors, Intermediate and Juniors provide their own white baseball pants, socks and belt.  There is a $25/player early bird registration discount for players who are registered before December 20, so please register ASAP.

Player evaluations

Player evaluations are required for all players in the Farm, Minors, Majors and Intermediate divisions.  Evaluations are tentatively schedule for Sunday, January 26 (pm) and Saturday, February 1 (am) at the Sunnyvale Middle School softball field.  More specific information will be posted closer to those dates.

 All players in the Farm, Minors, Majors and Intermediate divisions must attend at least one evaluation session. (There are no evaluations for T-Ball and Pioneer.)


Snack Shack Duty

Sunnyvale Southern operates a Snack Shack at the De Anza park baseball fields when baseball games are being played.  Proceeds from the snack shack help to lower our registration fees and provide funds for training, equipment, uniforms, facilities, and other areas.  Part of registration includes agreement to work at least two shifts of snack shack duty during regular season per player, and two more shifts during postseason per player if the player plays in postseason.  A $100 "buyout" may be paid per player to fulfill two snack shack shifts. If a player's parent(s)/guardian(s) choose(s) to pay the buyout, this choice and payment needs to be made as part of a player's registration. 


How do I volunteer to be a manager, coach or work in some other capacity?

As a volunteer organization, SSLL is always looking for dedicated people to help in various capacities.   We especially need managers and coaches at the Tball and Pioneer level.  If you are interested in managing or coaching a team this season, please contact the league president, Jean Fairweather at jdfairweather@sbcglobal.net
