3rd Grade League Commissioner

2021 Season Overview

The 3rd Grade League is for children in 3rd Grade during the 2020-21 academic school year.

Teams at this age group are formed based on an evaluation process to create balanced teams selected by coaches based on their results.

Each player will be assigned a 1.5-hour time slot and be evaluated on the following:

  • Hitting (batting cage)
  • Throwing / Pitching / Catching
  • Fielding (infield and outfield)

Evaluations will be conducted by 3rd Grade coaches who have registered for the upcoming season.  After the evaluation process has been completed, head coaches will be assigned and teams formed based on the player ratings during evaluations.  Best efforts will be made for all teams within the 3rd Grade league to be balanced.

No "play with" or "coach" requests will be allowed.



WE NEED COACHES!!  Please volunteer to be a head coach or an assistant coach via your registration form, onsite registration or go to  Please contact league commissioner with questions.



Each team will typically practice two weeknights (M/W or T/Th) with games on Sundays.  Games can also be played on assigned practice nights.  There will be no games scheduled during the Memorial Day and 4th of July weekends. 

The 3rd Grade League intends to practice and play games at Plymouth Creek Playfields or LaCompte Fields.

While each coach has discretion, practices will be scheduled for 60-90 minutes.  Games will have a 2 hour time limit.

PLEASE NOTE:  If your child is interested in playing weekend tournaments and a 12-16 game league schedule against other communities, they should try out for the Travel League.  More information can be found on our Travel Page.
