Baseball Divisions

Kent Little League offers a wide range of options beginning with Tee Ball for boys and girls from 4 years of age up to competitive baseball for players through age 16. Please review the divisions here before registration. We assign all players to teams with an emphasis on safety and player development. To determine what division your child will be in, check the Little League Age Calculator HERE!! 


Tee Ball, Ages 4-6 (Co-Ed)

Tee Ball players hit a modified ball off a batting tee. Rules of the game may be varied to accommodate the need for teaching at this level. The primary goals of Tee Ball are to instruct children in the fundamentals of baseball and to allow them to experience the value of teamwork. Rosters may be composed of between 10 and 12 players. No kid-pitching is permitted in this division.

Practices for Tee Ball begin in April; you will not be contacted by your Manager until that time. Please note that the other divisions will be practicing and playing by that time.
