PHR offers four levels of play for ages 5 to 12 years old. PHR attempts to match each player's ability to an appropriate level of play. This assessment is made based on prior and current performance as well as at Spring evaluations. However, due to LPWH league rules, it may become necessary to assign a player to a level regardless of preference.
T-Ball is an introduction to baseball for young players. PHR has multiple teams at this level for players generally age 5 and 6 and those who are new to baseball. The focus of T-ball is to learn the fundamentals of baseball through practice and play. To learn batting skills, players hit from coach-pitching as well as from the tee. Winning games is not emphasized at this level.
Pony baseball is for players generally age 7 and 8 and serves as a transition from T-ball to baseball. The game is played with a combination of kid-pitch, coach-pitch. The rules are altered from "traditional" baseball so players can learn to how to play defense and pitch well as to learn how to hit from kid-pitching. As with T-ball, learning the game is more important than the score.
Minor baseball is the first level of competitive baseball in LPWH. The games have some rule changes to speed up the pace of the game and to assist in the development of fundamental baseball skills. The ages of the players are generally 9 and 10 along with older players that do not play at the Major level.
PHR fields two teams at the Major level for players age 11 and 12. PHR intends to field competitive teams at this level, i.e., teams that will challenge for the LPWH League championship. Not every player age 11 or 12 will play at the Major level. For this reason, teams are chosen following Spring evaluations.
