Spartan League

Koa Sports – Spartan League (1st-5th Grade)

Koa‚Äôs Spartan League provides an exciting intro to the sport of baseball in a safe and fun environment. ¬†Players start in Koa’s Rookie T-ball League and progress to our Spartan Baseball League. ¬†After t-ball, kids can try our Big 10 Coach Pitch model, which allows players to continue learning the game and having fun! Machine Pitch baseball is a fast-paced way to get your son to enjoy the fundamentals of the game. ¬†Expect this program to be fun with some instruction, with players learning team camaraderie and sportsmanship. As the boys get older and progress to Kid Pitch baseball, the program remains fun, but with a higher emphasis on skill. ¬†Spartan League introduces your player to Koa baseball and our passionate and professional coaches,¬†providing an opportunity to instill ‚Äúthe love of the game‚Äù in your athlete at an early age! If it‚Äôs a good fit, we hope all of our Spartan League players will eventually try out for Koa‚Äôs travel baseball program, which runs from 9U-22U.

Program Description:  Koa’s Spartan Baseball League is an open-registration rec baseball league for boys in K-5th grades.  There are 3 age group divisions: BIG 10 Coach Pitch K-1st graders; ACC Machine Pitch 1st-3rd graders; Ivy Kid Pitch 4th-5th graders.  Teams will have approximately 13 players to ensure enough players for a successful game while providing fair and equal playing time.  The BIG 10 season is 6 weeks long (with a rain-out date) and teams will meet for 75-minute sessions on Sundays. The ACC/Ivy season is 7 weeks long (with a rain-out date) and teams generally have 1 practice per week and 1 game on the weekends (occasional double headers).  There are no travel requirements.

The BIG 10 League is parent-coached, but Koa will provide a coach who will both pitch and act as umpire.

ACC League Players can choose either option 1 or option 2 (listed below); Ivy League Players can choose from all 3 coaching options outlined below. Please note, if the option you select is under-enrolled, you will be given the opportunity to switch to a different coaching option for the season. Koa offers three different coaching options:

  • Option #1 – Games and practices are 100% parent coached.
  • Option #2 – Players (as a team) attend weekly Koa coached practices, but games are parent coached.
  • Option #3 (IVY ONLY) – Koa‚Äôs professional coaches handle all practices and games.

Athletes and families selecting option 2 or 3 will be assigned one of Koa’s professional coaches, all of whom boast playing and coaching experience, and have passed through our background check system. These coaches (and you and your athlete) are aided by our full-time staff, including Koa’s Director of Baseball.  All players benefit from Koa’s full-time administrators who handle field assignments, scheduling, uniforms, equipment, practice plans and more. Each team must have a Parent Manager (PM) Рthe position requires no more than 10 minutes a week. Option #3 Teams must also have a volunteer Parent Assistant Coach (PAC). 

Note: Koa Option 1 and Koa Option 2: Koa may add players to any Spartan Baseball team that has not reached the maximum capacity of 13 players.
Note: Koa Option 2 and Koa Option 3: Players may make-up missed practices at any other age appropriate Koa practice.
