This season Regan Youth League is piloting a new format for the Pony Division. We will be dividing the Division into two sub-divisions: one for players 13 – 14 and one for players 15 -17. This will allow younger players (especially those moving to Pony who turn thirteen between April 1 and September 1) to develop with players more their own size and skill while at the same time expanding our programs to include 17 year olds.

13-14 Sub-Division (for players who will be 13 or 14 by September 1, 2019):
This sub-division will focus on skills development as players move to the full-sized diamond. There will be one shared practice per week for all players in the sub-division, one weeknight game and one weekend game.

15-17 Sub-Division (for players who will be 15, 16 or 17 by September 1, 2019): 

This sub-division will be a games only division to better accommodate players who are also playing on their school teams. Games will be Friday night, Saturday or Sunday. Registration and skills assessment for both sub-divisions will take place during registration on March 30 and April 6. More information will follow when details for registration are shared.

* La División Pony ahora servirá a los jugadores 13 - 17!

Regan Youth League está inciando un nuevo formato para la División Pony. Dividiremos la División en dos subdivisiones: una para los jugadores 13 - 14 y otra para los jugadores 15 - 17. Esto permitirá que los jugadores más jóvenes (especialmente aquellos que se mudan a Pony que cumplen trece años entre el 1 de abril y el 1 de septiembre) se desarrollen con jugadores de su propio tamaño y destreza, al mismo tiempo que expanden nuestros programas para incluir a jóvenes de 17 años.

• Subdivisión 13-14 (para jugadores que tendrán 13 o 14 años para el 1 de septiembre de 2019):
Esta subdivisión se enfocará en el desarrollo de habilidades a medida que los jugadores pasan al diamante de tamaño completo. Habrá una práctica compartida cada semana para todos los jugadores de la subdivisión, un partido durante la semana y un partido en el fin de semana.
 • Subdivisión 15-17 (para jugadores que tendrán 15, 16 ó 17 años para el 1 de septiembre de 2019):
Esta subdivisión será una división de sólo juegos para acomodar mejor a los jugadores que también están jugando en sus equipos escolares. Los partidos serán el viernes por la noche, el sábado o el domingo.

La inscripción y evaluación de habilidades para ambas subdivisiones se llevará a cabo durante la inscripción el 30 de marzo y el 6 de abril. Seguirá más información cuando se compartan los detalles de la inscripción. Mientras tanto, póngase en contacto con mail@reganyouthleague.org con cualquier pregunta.
