Baseball- Tee Ball



Teeball

Tee-ball is the introductory level of baseball which focuses on learning basic fundamentals and learning the rules. Children are taught the basic skills of throwing, catching, fielding, batting, and running the bases as we de-emphasizing competitiveness at this level. Players hit off a stationary tee and may move to coach pitching during the season as appropriate. 

There is a great deal of hands-on instruction during the events. During game play, coaches remain on the field to give instruction.

2024 Spring Baseball

Vernon-Rockville Little League Registration
Welcome to the VRLL Online Registration System.

Little League 2024 Spring Baseball

This program is for girls and boys LEAGUE ages 4 -12 to play in one of our defined age divisions of Little League Spring Baseball. 
There are many different programs to choose from. Please enroll members in the proper program per the description & age. The season runs from Mid April - Early June. Most teams have multiple practices during the week that start in early April. Depending on the program games are held on some week nights and Saturdays. Majors teams can expect to start practicing in early March and will have light travel to surrounding towns for some games during the season.

There are multiple levels of play that we anticipate providing:
  • Tee Ball Level- 4-6 year olds (6 year olds who have not completed Tee Ball must register here)
  • Farm Level- Most 7-8 year olds (6 Year olds are allowed to play in Farm if they have completed Tee Ball)
  • Minors Level- Most 9-11 year olds (Some 8 year olds will be placed in minors based on evaluations)
  • Majors Level - Drafted 9-12 year olds (Returning Majors Players, league age 9 who wish to be considered for Majors, and all players league age 10-12 will be evaluated as part of the Majors Draft)
*Note, players who were new to Majors in the fall are not guaranteed to be drafted to a Majors team in the spring. All players league age 8-12 not currently on a Majors team must attend evaluations on Saturday Feb 24th or Sunday 25th. Returning Majors players do not need to attend evaluations and are placed on their previous team. You should wait to purchase new bats and gloves until you speak with a coach who can guide sizing and affiliation requirements. All bats not made of wood must have the USA bat stamp on them.
