Team Selections

Tee-Ball and Coach Pitch: 
Tee-Ball and Coach Pitch teams are put together by the ZLL Board. We try to make the teams as evenly skilled as possible based on coaches ratings from the prior year (for those that played last season) and the ratings parents give their child during the registration process. New for this season, we are allowing players in Tee Ball and Coach Pitch to “Sign-Up with a Friend”. At registration, if two players have each others’ names in the “Sign-Up with a Friend” area, we will place them on the same team. We also attempt to put players from the same school on the same teams to increase the likelihood they are on a team with someone they know! All players will know their teams by April 1.


Team Formation Practice


This is designed to evaluate current skill levels of participants in kid-pitch leagues in order to help form evenly skilled teams. Players will participate in a series of drills while being evaluated by coaches and ZLL board members.

Baseball Team Formation Practice: Sat, Mar 4

  • Applies to players in A, AA, AAA, and Majors
  • Times will be communicated in mid-Feb
  • Equally skilled team selections will be released by March 25

Softball Team Formation Practices: Sat, Mar 11

  • Applies to players in Minors and Majors
  • Times will be communicated in mid-Feb
  • Equally skilled team selections will be released by March 25

After Team Formation Practice, coaches from those leagues complete a “draft” to select players for their team. Because coaches pick their team, we cannot guarantee that your child will know someone on the team they are selected to. The best way to ensure your child is on a team with a friend is to sign up to coach so that you are part of the team selection process. If the player has a sibling that will be in the same division, we do ensure that they are placed on the same team. The draft process also ensures that teams are formed as evenly skilled as possible. Parents are notified of which team their child is placed shortly after the draft is complete. Parents will be notified of the team their child is on by March 25.
