Teeball
Six year old boys and girls are provided with their first exposure to baseball team play. Every player plays in the field each inning and every player bats each inning, hitting a safe rubberized ball off a stand known as a "tee". The play is spirited and fun and somehow the games always end in a tie. A volunteer coach schedules weekly practices to teach baseball skills and games are held on Saturday usually 12:30pm,2:30pm and 4:30pm at the Little League Complex 247 Central Street.Opening day is 4/10/2010

Farm
Coaches continue to pitch to the boys and girls; however, a regulation baseball is used and 9 players are in the field at one time. The batters bat until there are 3 outs or the entire team hits, whichever comes first. The players and the game are naturally more sophisticated than Tee Ball, but instruction is still the emphasis of the league.Games are scheduled all the days of the week. Some games are played at IRP (Ipswich River Park) and some are held at the Little League Complex 247 Central Street.Opening day is 4/10/2010.

Rules of play are modified for the Challenger Division to allow players of all abilities to participate. Each Challenger player is partnered with a “Buddy” to assist on the field when needed.
