Rookie Ball is for 7 and 8 year olds. Depending on skill level, experience and number of registrants - 6 and 9 year olds may also be considered for Rookie Ball.
6 year old players who played Blastball last year may request to play in the Rookie Division, and will need to attend the Evaluations for the Rookie Division to determine the best fit for the player.
9 year old players who are new to baseball will be asked to start at the Rookie evaluations, to determine the best fit for the player.
Players will be placed on smaller teams in the Rookie Division consisting of a maximum of 9 players. Teams will rotate between playing games and practicing skills throughout the season. Trail Little League uses a ‘sling arm’ pitching machine for games at the Rookie Ball level.
Rookie Ball is played twice per week on Monday, Wednesday or Friday evenings after 4pm. Season schedule will be determined in mid to late April, with 'Opening Day' targeted for Saturday April 25th, and the season ending by June 24th.
