Pee Wee Overview

Spring Season Overview

Spring season is our most popular season of the little league program with nearly 700 players participating each year. As a Little League organization, teams play other teams in their division within Tigard Little League during the spring season.

Pee Wee is a co-ed league intended for boys and girls ages 4 - 7, typically Pre-K through first grade.

Levels of Play: Tee Ball This introductory, non-competitive level of baseball is for all 5 year olds as well as 6 year olds with little or no baseball or softball experience. Players are hitting a soft baseball from a stationery batting tee, no outs are tracked, and every player bats each inning.
Coach Pitch This introductory, non-competitive level of baseball is for 6 year olds that have played a year of Tee Ball as well as 7 year olds with no baseball or softball experience. Players hit a soft baseball pitched by the coach (a tee is not used).
Games: Usually one 90 minute game (including 30 minute warm-ups) on Saturdays with a maximum of 3 innings, with all children on the roster batting each inning
Team Formation:


Co-ed teams are formed by the League based upon neighborhood or school, using a variety of criteria, including: coach requests, buddy requests, school and age/gender balance in February. Families may request one "buddy" or day of the week (e.g. M/W or T/Thu).
