6-8: Player-pitch with 12-inch ball. Rules
4-5: Player-pitch with 11-inch ball, coaches coming in on ball four. Rules

No. We feel strongly that Rec is about being with friends and being part of a team of like-aged players. We don’t want to alter that. 

If you feel your child is not being challenged enough, we can point you toward additional options, such as our summer travel and fall Panthers programs that are geared toward more competitive play. 

Note: For the rare player who plays "up" for two years in a summer Panthers division, the Rec Director and Panthers Director will consider allowing this athlete to play in a higher Rec division. We will only consider moving players in Rec who meet this strict criterion.
