Your Little League currently offers the following programs:

Rookie League (Tee Ball)  - Spring and Fall
This program is for the young players ages 4 to 6 years old just learning the game. Tee Ball utilizes an adjustable batting tee for hitting. The program is a 10-week plan and resource that features structured learning, highlighted by one practice and one game per week on Saturdays. Over the course of the season, coaches and parents will engage in a series of lessons utilizing up to 40 activities that include skills, drills and plenty of physical activity.

Farm League (Coach Pitch) - Spring and Fall
This is league focuses on skills essential for building a solid foundation for the game of baseball while having fun. IT is intended for players ages 6-8 years old who are ready to hit a moving ball. Little League rules are modified for the youngsters to promote skill development. Coaches are allowed in the field and pitch to their own teams. Later in the season as skills develop, play may move change to a modified kid pitch format where kids throw the first few pitches to a batter and if necessary, the Coach will step in to finish pitching. Modified kid-pitch is decided on a case-by-case basis by the coaches before the start of each game. We do not keep score or strike count at this level and kids are given as many as 9 to 10 pitches to hit. The season generally consists of 2 practices per week at the start of the season, with 1 to 2 games per week when season play begins.

Tournament Teams
Ken-Caryl Tournament Teams (KCTT) is a program for players who want additional baseball experience above the 15-2o games offered in a typical KCLL season. KCTT teams play in area tournaments through organizations such as CABA, USSSA and Triple Crown. KCTT operate independent of Ken-Caryl Little League. These teams do not receive any financial or material support from KCLL.  KCLL co-operates with KCTT to co-ordinate schedules (e.g. bye weekends during the regular KCLL season) so that players may enjoy the best of both programs.
