Summer: Ages 5-12

Summer Programs for 5-12 Year Olds (60' Diamond)

League Age 5, 6, and 7 Year Olds

Informal coach pitch program for ages 5, 6, and 7 year olds (and 8 year olds whose parents feel their child is not ready for a player pitch league). The program will meet two days per week (TBD) for approximately 90 minutes. In recent years, this program has met at the Franklin School. The format will be roughly 45 minutes of skills and drills, 45 minutes of a scrimmage game with the players being grouped by skill level, based on the players in attendance each night. 

7-year olds playing in the Single A division during the spring season are encouraged to play in the Merrimack Valley Small Diamond League in the 7/8-year old division.

League Age 7 and 8 Year Olds

Players will compete in the Merrimack Valley Small Diamond League (MVSDL) 7/8-year old division against teams from Andover, Billerica, Dracut, Lawrence, Methuen, and Haverhill. This team is intended for players who participated in the Single A division during the spring season, but is open to 7-year olds who played IL during the spring season (this is a big jump, but some players are ready). This league plays approximately 10-12 games (5-6 games played in North Andover), with a single-elimination playoff to conclude the season in early August. Every effort is made to schedule all of the games on weeknights. Typically there are one or two practices per week, scheduled at the coach's discretion. This program will be strictly kid pitch, playing under Little League rules.  Teams will be selected by the age level VP and the Player Agent, with the goal of creating balanced teams with equal ability. Registration for MVSDL is open from mid May until June 15th.
