Rookie

The  emphasis in Rookie is on development including base running, hitting, fielding skills and tactics, but most importantly SPORTSMANSHIP and FAIR PLAY rule the diamond. There will be ZERO tolerance for any abusive language or behaviour from parents, coaches or players. WINS AND LOSSES ARE NOT RECORDED, nor are they how we define a successful season. 

Growing up fast and soaking up life & baseball (later on in Little League, many see that line vanish as life BECOMES baseball!) the time has finally come to make the move off the fields and onto a diamond… a diamond with DUGOUTS! Aged 7-8, our Little Leaguers have developed in leaps and bounds in their short careers and the Rookie division is set up so they can polish their skills before making the final step in baseball… pitching! Basic pitching mechanics will be introduced in practice later in the season, however they will continue to use the pitching-slinger during games. 

Depending on registration numbers, this division is usually split up into 12-player teams that play each other throughout the season.

2019 Outlook

The Rookie Division season begins on April 13th. This season there will be 10 teams. Games and Practices vary from week to week but include weeknights and weekends.

Coquitlam Little League provides team hats, belts and jerseys (belt and jerseys must be returned) as well as bats and all equipment needed to play baseball. Players must provide their own helmet, glove, baseball pants (grey) and protective cup. Cleats are encouraged but can be soccer cleats. We supply bats to each team, and if your player already has a bat they are welcome to use it during regular season. If you are buying a new bat, please ensure it conforms to the new bat regulations. ALL conforming bats will have a USA Baseball label on them.

Looking forward to an amazing season of fun and skill development with all of you!
