  • We have (3) league season throughout the calendar year:
  • Spring - March to May. We start registrations in late November, and practices in mid/late January. Spring Ball is considered more competitive, we keep score and standings.
  • All Star - June/July. All Star teams are highly competitive. Designated age groups are: 9-10 and 11-12. You have to have played at least half of Spring Ball to be considered for All Stars. All Star team roster is chosen by the All Star team manager.
  • Fall - September to November. We start registrations in July. Fall Ball is considered more instructional. No scores or standings.

  •  Bats (optional)
  •  Baseball/Softball Glove/Mitt

  • Game Balls
  • Practice Ball
  • "T"  for T-Ball
  • Team bags for catcher gear and bats

  • Assess to Cocoa Beach Ball Park pitching machine, batting cage and other hitting tools

 
6. Which bats can I use?

If anyone has questions about what type of equipment to purchase (type of glove or bat) it is a great idea to approach your coach with those questions or email info@spacecoastlittleleague.org. There are additional requirements in terms of bat sizing that are strictly enforced and can be found here: Approved Bats. Here are a few tips from Louisville Slugger:
  • Weight: As a general rule, bigger, stronger players usually prefer a heavier bat for maximum power. Smaller players usually benefit from a lighter bat that allows greater bat speed. To determine the weight that’s right for you, swing a variety of bats and see how much weight you’re comfortable with.
  • Length: Length and weight combine for peak performance. A longer bat gives you greater reach, allowing you to hit balls on the other side of the plate. But remember that a longer bat may be heavier, and the extra weight could slow you down. Like checking the weight, you need to swing bats of different lengths to decide what length best suits you.
  • Barrel diameter: Most players 12 and under should use a 2 1/4” barrel. This is the standard barrel size for Little League baseball. Anything bigger is considered to be a 'big barrel' bat and not legal for Little League baseball games.
 

7. Where can I purchase baseball cleats, cups, pants and socks?

Additional baseball pants and socks may be purchased from local retailers such as  Dicks Sporting Goods, who is a proud sponsor and business partner with the Space Coast Little League.  It is a good idea to have practice pants and socks so that you can keep your game pants and socks clean for game days.When selecting pants, you may select the grey color as it can also be used for games. Socks color will depend on the team colors, so it may be best to wait until after you receive the team uniform.

Alternatively, they may also be purchased from Walmart and Target

8. How can I support the Space Coast Little League?
