STATE ALL STAR TOURNAMENT (Jul 22-27)

If any of our KCLL All Star teams win the District Tournament, then they will get to play in the State Tournament! This year - FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME - KCLL has been asked to host the State Tournament for the "11 years old and younger" division!!  Like the District Tournament, volunteers make for a GREAT tournament!  So, please help us out!

 

FALL BASEBALL (Aug 7-Oct 19)

Fall Baseball registration is now open! Our Fall baseball program is very relaxed and is focused on skills development. While we keep score, there are not standings, playoffs, or championships. Players are often given more latitude to play skill positions such as pitcher, catcher, and first base. Fall is a great time to try out the next division up to see if the ball player is ready to handle the higher competition.

Welcome to Ken-Caryl Little League

Welcome to Ken-Caryl Little League!

 

Ken-Caryl Little League is all about baseball. That's all we do. It's all we think about. We love the game and want every child to have this quintessential American experience.

Ken-Caryl Little League is part of Little League International - the same organization that brings you the Little League World Series.  Little League is the world's largest volunteer youth sports program with over 4 million volunteers worldwide. The program has been in existence for over 70 years and brings a wealth of experience and resources to our local chapter. See www.littleleague.org for more information.

 

SPRING SEASON

The Spring Season is our main baseball program.

We will begin the 2017 Spring Season with indoor practices/clinics starting in February. These indoor practices will be available once or twice per week, they will be organized by different age groups, and will be focused on developing the basic skills such as fielding, hitting, throwing, pitching, and catching. The February program will precede our team formation and is an optional "extra" for everyone registered for our Spring Season.

Teams will be formed the first week of March through a "player draft." The purpose of the draft is to create balanced teams that will play fun competitive games throughout the Spring season. We work hard to create parity between the teams and consider this to be one of the fundamental differences between our program and others in the area. We want to play a game - and enjoy the game - and make sure everyone gets an opportunity to play their best.

 

SPRING DIVISIONS

 

You can get additional details about the various division levels on our registration page. However, KCLL baseball programs are open to boys or girls aged 4 to 13.

Rookie League (Tee Ball) - this program is once per week (Saturday mornings) and offers our youngest ball players an opportunity to learn the basics of the game.

Farm League (Coach Pitch) - this program is for players aged 5-8 that are new to baseball. The program does not keep score or track wins/losses. We focus on the basic skills of throwing, catching, and hitting a baseball.

AA Division - this is the entry level "kid pitch" program. Players entering AA should be able to defend themselves from a thrown ball. It is a full baseball game - outs are recorded, score is kept, and we crown "champions" at the end of the season. Entry to this division is based on the skill of the player. However, players are typically aged between 6-9 years old.

AAA Division - this is the transitional level program that precedes the "elite" level of our Majors. Pitching distance is the same as our Majors Division and most of the same rules apply. It is designed for players that are ready to play at a strong, competitive level, but are not yet prepared for the speed of the Majors game level. Entry to this division is based on the skill of the player. However, players are typically aged between 9-11 years old.

Majors Division - this is the elite level program that plays by the full Little League rules. It is designed for the players that are ready to play a full competitive game. Entry to this division is based on the skill of the player. However, players are typically aged between 10-12 years old.

Intermediate Division - the Intermediate Division offers older players (aged 11-13) the opportunity to play in an advanced baseball program. Pitching distance is longer than in the Majors Division (50' instead of 46'). Base paths are longer (70' instead of 60'). And the competitive level is considerably higher. Games include both intra league play (conditional on KCLL rostering at least 2 teams) as well as many inter league games (e.g., other Denver area Little League programs). At this level, runners can lead off, balks are called on pitchers, and the speed of the game is much higher. ANY PLAYER AGED 11-13 CAN REGISTER in the Intermediate Division. But please realize that many players will be 13 years old and the competitive play will be high.

Dual Registration Opportunity: Majors + Intermediate - KCLL will offer all of our 11-12 year old Majors Division players the opportunity to play in BOTH the Majors and Intermediate Division levels. The second registration will include a modest additional registration fee. This opportunity is for those Majors players that want to play MORE baseball games and also want the experience of the heightened competitive play of the Intermediate Division games. In general, priority will be given to the Majors practices/games when conflicts occur. If you would like to really expand your baseball experience in 2017, consider the dual registration opportunity.

KEN-CARYL LITTLE LEAGUE is a community focused baseball program. We actively invest in the baseball fields at area schools. Over the years, KCLL has provided funding and efforts to improve fields at Community Park, Shaffer Elementary, Falcon Bluffs Middle School, Mortensen Elementary, and Columbine Hills Elementary. Your registration and sponsorships not only provide for a baseball experience for KCLL players, but also help to improve baseball fields and programs throughout our community.  KCLL has also donated used baseballs and equipment to both local programs and in the Dominican Republic.

 

We know you have a choice about which baseball program you choose. We very much appreciate your support of Ken-Caryl Little League.
