Our 10U Kid Pitch League is a league for 9 and 10 year olds. Players may not turn 11 before May 1st of the current year for Spring/Summer ball and may not turn 11 before May 1st of the subsequent year for Fall ball to be eligible. The focus of the league is to introduce young players to the true game of baseball. This league introduces players to the art of pitching and further expands upon fundamentals and game knowledge.

Practice times are determined by your Coach, not by the league.
Pony Express Baseball follows USSSA rules...however, we do have a "Non-Competitive" version for our teams that are just starting out and not competing in travel tournament ball.
By registering as a Coach, this does not mean you will be guaranteed a team. PEB will screen all coaching applications / background checks and the Board of Directors and League Directors will select the coaches that best fit the position.
To be considered for a Coach position, you will need to complete the Coaches Application and the online Background Check (if you coached in the prior session and had the background check completed, you do not need to do another for the current session):
