Fall Ball Program Descriptions

The Little Sluggers Coach Pitch league is for kids who are going into pre-K or Kindergarten in the fall (2014-15 school year).  Kids receive five pitches and if they do not hit it then it is placed on a tee.  For fall ball, we do not offer a t-ball option. The only option is coach pitch.

 

The Pee Wee League is for kids who are going into Kindergarten, 1st grade, or 2nd grade in the fall (2014-15 school year).  Kids hit off a pitching machine and more formal baseball rules (including outs) are introduced.

 

Kelly Danen American League is for kids going into 3rd or 4th grade in the fall (2014-15 school year).  This is a kid-pitch league and nearly all baseball rules apply (with the notable exception of leading off).  For fall ball, the American League plays on Monday and Wednesday nights.  (This is different from the summer season).  In addition, for the first two weeks, practices are scheduled for any night of the week, including weekends.  Game times start at 5:00 and 6:30.

 

Kelly Danen National League is for kids who are going into 5th or 6th grade in the fall (2014-15 school year).  This is a kid-pitch league and nearly all baseball rules apply (with the notable exception of leading off).  For fall ball, the National League plays on Tuesday and Thursday nights.  (This is different from the summer season).  In addition, for the first two weeks, practices are scheduled for any night of the week, including weekends.  Game times start at 5:00 and 6:30.

 

For kids going into 7th grade in the fall (2014-15 school year), we have two options for them.  They can play in both options.  The first option is a 7th grade only league.  The second option is the 7th-9th grade league which is described below.  The 7th grade only league takes place in Kaukauna is on Sunday afternoons/evenings.  It is played on a Pony-size diamond which is what the kids will play on next summer.  (The 7th-9th grade league is played on a full-size diamond.)  If interested in playing in both leagues, you will need to sign your child up twice - once for the 7th grade only league and once for the 7th-9th grade league.

 

The 7th-9th grade fall ball league is for kids who are going into 7th, 8th or 9th grade in the fall (2014-15 school year).  This league is designed for kids who do NOT play a fall sport.  We strongly encourage kids to play multiple sports.  If your child has a chance to participate in a fall sport, we suggest your child do so.  This is only for kids not playing a fall sport through De Pere High School, West De Pere High School, De Pere Middle School or West De Pere Middle School.  They will practice and play games on a full-size diamond.  We are part of an informal fall ball league.  Games may be any night of the week and located throughout northeast Wisconsin.
