What is the difference in each age group?

  • Tee Ball is the introduction to baseball for our youngest players.  Emphasis is on learning the basics of the game and having FUN!  Thanks to BGV Gives, the Summit Foundation, local grants, sponsors, and fundraising we can offer Tee ball for FREE again this year!  Games and practices last for up to 60 minutes and will be on Monday and Wednesday nights. Some teams will be scheduled to play 1 game only in Fairplay during the season. 
  • Coach/Kid Pitch is the second step in a player’s baseball progression.   The emphasis for this age group is expanding their baseball knowledge and having FUN!  Players will hit pitches from the coach and begin learning about strikes and outs. By the end of the season, coaches will encourage players who are ready to start practice pitching. Practices are 60 minutes, and games last for up to 90 minutes.  Games and practices will be on Tuesday and Thursday nights. Some teams will be scheduled to play 1 game only in Fairplay during the season. 
  • Minors is the beginning of a true baseball game.  Players field all positions on the diamond and have umpires calling the game.  Base paths and pitching distances are age-appropriate.  Did we mention fun?  Yes, this is FUN! Although we try to keep convenience in mind, players are divided into teams to create a level playing field, and can not guarantee players will be with all of their friends or at the “home” field. Practices are 1.5 hours and games last 6 innings or until the 2-hour time limit is reached. Games and practices will be on Tuesday and Thursday nights. There’s a possibility of 1-2 games in Fairplay this year.
  • Majors is the next step.  The field dimensions are larger and a real game of baseball begins to appear.   Players are divided on teams to create a level playing field and split competitive players amongst all teams. Practices are 1.5 hours and games last 6 innings or until the 2-hour time limit is reached. Games and practices will be on Monday and Wednesday nights.
  • Sandlot 16u - Nights Under the Lights- At this time we do not have a field with lights. Kingdom Park will be under construction. Stay tuned for updates and new ideas for continued play at this age.


What equipment does my participant need to provide?

  • Participants need proper shoes for running on grass and/or dirt infields.  Molded baseball cleats are suggested but not required.  Metal spikes are NOT allowed. Pioneer Sports in Silverthorne has cleats
  • Baseball glove - appropriate size for player and division
  • Baseball pants in any color (not required for CP or TB)


How are teams formed? 

  • Many factors are put into play for team placement
  • For TB, players may indicate 1 friend or coach they would like to play with. We do our best to fulfill the request, but it can not always be guaranteed. For TB and CP, players are placed on the “home” team of the elementary school they attend. If your child lives in one town but attends school in another town, please indicate your “home field” preference in the “special circumstances” space in the registration form. (Park County players will be placed on a Fairplay team for TB and CP if there are teams, and unless otherwise requested at the time of registration)
  • For Minors & Majors, we first try to balance spring players amongst the teams to balance the baseball experience.  We keep siblings of the same level together. Consider location (school and/or home) and last is special requests which are harder to fulfill at these age groups. We are confident that with the positive support of parents, this is a great opportunity for kids to make new friends. (Park County players will be placed on a Fairplay team IF there are enough players to field a FULL Park County team at each level. If NOT, then Park County players will be placed on a Breckenridge team)
  • Other primary factors: Team Sponsors, Coaches, field locations, and 1st time players.
  • Other secondary factors: Known time away, balanced team sizes, and special requests
  • As you can see, this is a large puzzle and we do our best to fit the pieces together. Our goal is to provide a fun, safe, and inclusive environment. It is not a perfect system, but we spend hours of discussions before finalizing the placements. Positive parental support helps give your child the opportunity to embrace new experiences and make new friends. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding that we are unable to fulfill every request.


Are Scholarships available?

  • Yes, they are!
  • Thanks to a grant through the Summit Foundation, we are able to fulfill many scholarship requests.

I saw something about camps, could you explain more?

  • Coach Dan Medina will be bringing his professional baseball camp and past Drury camp coaches back to Summit County this summer.  This camp is for players ages 8-16.  At least minimal baseball experience is encouraged. The camp will run from 9 am to 3 pm each day, June 24-28 at Upper Blue Elementary, Breckenridge.  We welcome Coach Dan to his 3rd year of camp in Summit. He has years of baseball coaching experience and coaches at Metro State University baseball in Denver. Along with Drury camp coaches, and his own staff they will provide another great camp, and the kids have a lot of fun!! Cost is $285. 
  • You can add this at the time of summer registration or on its own 


Explain the SYBS at the Rockies:

  • The Rockies pair up with Youth Baseball teams across Colorado to offer fundraising or discounted tickets to teams -  We pass the savings on to you! 
  • Included in the ticket is a pre-game youth parade, players join the Summit Baseball family to walk on the field with youth baseball and softball teams from all over Colorado


This sounds great, how can I help?
