    House League Breakdown

    The Elk River Youth Baseball redeveloped our house leagues for kids 4th grade and younger in 2021.  These changes allowed for kids to be divided into leagues based on ability and age, so they can continue to develop as young athletes.

    Our leagues follow the guidelines below:

    • Minors (Coach Pitch) – Prek – 1st Grade, this is an introductory coach pitch league.
    • National League (Beginner Kid Pitch) 1st – 3rd Grade. This is an introductory modified kid pitch league, where kids are introduced to pitching.
    • American League (Advanced Kid Pitch) 2nd – 4th Grade. This is an advanced kid pitch league that allows kids to improve their skills in all aspects of the game.

    Each league is a progression, to help kids move up and be prepared for competitive and/or travel baseball.

    Kids from PreK – K will start in our Minors Coach Pitch League.

    1st Graders have the option to play coach pitch or our modified kid pitch league if they are ready.

    2-4th Graders can register for either house or travel.  These kids will be evaluated during our tryout weekend.  Kids who opt to play house, and kids trying out for travel that do  not make a team, will be placed in either our National (beginner kid pitch) or American (advanced kid pitch) league based on their evaluation scores.

    Indoor Training Facility Rental

    Are you looking to get a few more cuts off a tee? Would you like to take some swings at balls from our pitching machine? Maybe you want to work on some fielding and throwing. You can rent time in our indoor training facility. Please read through the baseball facility policies to understand all the rules and regulations to be followed. We have 2 batting cages for hitting and a wide turf area to work on fielding, throwing, etc.  If you are interested in renting time in our facility, email Dave Lodermeier to schedule your time in the facility.
