Overview

Spring Session Overview

Age Groups: 7U-14U
Season: April through July
 
The youth divisions are open to boys 7U through 14U, younger ages are considered training league and operate under their own set of unique rules and guidelines.
 
Eureka Sports Association offers different levels of competition within each age group for 7U divisions and above.
  • Blue - Select (AA)
  • Red - Competitive (A)
  • White- Recreational
 
Our association schedules each team to play 12 league games.  Blue level teams will initially be scheduled Monday through Thursday as these teams play tournaments and play less during the weekends.
 
It is important for teams to rank themselves before the season begins and evaluate their talent from year to year so Coordinators/Commissioners can rank you in a division that will allow the best competition.  Each park as well as the STLWest Commissioner will vet teams to assure fair play.
 
For all other rules please see the STL West Rule Book.

Note: Teams can change their ranking from year to year as individual teams progress and evolve from season to season. 
 
ESA baseball teams will be provided a practice field once a week, coach to set schedule. ESA will provide instructions afer registration is completed with practices starting in March. Games are scheduled throughout the week including weeknights and weekends.  Rained out games will be rescheduled.
