The recreational, or city, league currently consists of teams from U5-U16.
The T-Ball and Coach Pitch Divisions play “age pure” which means five year olds play each other; six year olds play each other, etc. Rules are established to ensure that the anticipated abilities to play, learn and develop are realistic for the respective age groups. As kids move up in age groups, the rules of the game advance accordingly to advance their baseball skills and knowledge. Teams stay together for their two Spring seasons in each division. Teams are selected by a blind draw of all registered players. No tryouts are required.
The nine and ten year olds also play age pure. Nine year old teams stay together for two Spring seasons. All older divisions (U12, U14 and U16) play age group mixed and will be re-formed each season. Teams are selected by draft based on a tryout.
City League coaches for both Fall and Spring are selected from a list of volunteers based on number of teams. Coach volunteer applications are available at registration. All CBA coaches must pass a routine criminal background check and complete a coach certification course. One weeknight game and one Saturday game per week is expected in the Spring, games in the Fall are only played on Saturdays. Number of regular season games is expected to be 11-12 in the Spring and 8 in the Fall.
A City League Tournament (double elimination) is played at the end of the regular season in the Spring to determine a champion for all divisions except T-Ball. There is no T-Ball tournament in CBA.
All divisions (U6, U8, U10, U12, U14 and U16) play age group mixed and are reformed each Fall season. Teams are selected by blind draw of all registered players. No tryouts are required.
