Southwest Community League (11-15u)


The most experienced level of In-House baseball, SW Community offers a more competitive atmosphere with games played against Carver, Shakopee, Chanhassen, Eden Prairie, & Edina, as well as a End of Year Tournament experience. Practices and games are mostly held on Tuesdays/Thursdays/Fridays, with an occasional weekend practice or game.  Away games may vary.

Teams are grouped by grade level (ages as of May 1, 2024) as follows:

Grades:
4th-5th (10s-11s yr old)
6th-7th. (12s-13s yr old)
8th-9th (14s-15s yr old)

The game is played on a 60-foot diamond with a pitching distance of 46 feet. In order to encourage the league to train more pitchers, there are rules that set the maximum number of innings a pitcher may pitch in a calendar week. Regulation games consist of six innings or four innings if a game is called. Special base running rules are also in effect.
