Little League Baseball Divisions

Bellevue East Little League offers baseball programs for boys and girls at the tee ball, minors, majors and juniors levels. Evaluations are held each year for all drafted levels of play to help determine each players overall skill and aptitude, and to ensure each player is properly placed at the correct level.

 

Tee-Ball Division (Ages 4-5 | Un-Drafted)

The Bellevue East Little League Tee Ball program is specifically designed for boys and girls, age 4 to 5, and provides a foundation and introduction to baseball and softball. Over the course of the 10 week season, coaches and players will engage in a series of lessons and activities to teach the fundamentals of the game including catching, throwing, batting (from a stationary tee), and physical fitness.

Bellevue East Little League has seen tremendous growth in our Tee Ball program in recent years; emphasizing fun and friendship as the core requirement. Parents and players can submit requests to play on teams with friends, neighbors, or based on school attendance.
