Our D Jr league is designed for 8 year olds and experienced 7 year olds, using a combination of kid and coach pitch. While DJr SBSA teams play other SBSA teams only during the regular season, there is a year-end tournament in which SBSA teams can compete against other D Jr teams across District 4 Knothole.
The D Jr draft is SBSA's most comprehensive draft as all teams "redraft" from scratch to promote a competitive balance. Teams that are assembled in D Jr may stay together in future years as long as the coach continues to coach and the players want to still play for the same team. Players may request to be placed on a different team after the D Jr season and they will be added to the "free agent" draft list, along with new SBSA players and others.
Our D Sr league is designed for 9 year olds to prepare them for full baseball rules. All players who dress for the game play at least two defensive innings and bat sequentially in a total team batting order. The season for this league is typically from early April through the end of June. The Athletic Division will play approximately 16 games, the Rec Division approximately 14 games.
