San Luis Obispo Youth Baseball is excited to offer six divisions for the 2019 spring season:
Collegiate: Ages 5 to 6 — Collegiate is a noncompetitive program (no scores are kept) and is designed to teach the basics of baseball. The division is machine pitch (and tee), and uses a lightweight dimple ball. Recommended for 5 and 6 year olds, and beginning 7 year olds. Experienced 4 year olds with 1+ years of TBall experienced may request to play (see below for detail on request process). Teams are formed by school, and game length is 3 innings. One practice and one game per week.
*It is HIGHLY recommended that kids have played at least 1 year of TBall with the YMCA.
Rookie: Ages 7 to 8 — This division is intended for players transitioning from the Collegiate Division. Rookie is machine pitch with the use of regular baseballs, and 60 foot bases. Recommended for 7 and 8 year olds, and advanced 6 year olds who have played 1+ year of Collegiate (see below for detail on request process). Teams are formed by school and game length is 6 innings. One to two practices per week and two games per week.

Farm: Ages 8 to 10 — Farm is a transitional division, designed to prepare players for the next level of baseball.

Recommended for 8 and 9 year olds, beginning 10 year olds, and advanced 7 year olds who have played 1+ year of Rookie (see below for detail on request process).
