Pee Wee pitching rules are subject to change based on the level of skill and competition to ensure there is baseball happening and the kids are learning and having fun!

Crown Colony is one of the only leagues in the Salt Lake Valley that begins developing pitchers as Pee Wees. As such, the league has adopted its own unique style to support proper development and active games.

Weeks 1-3 Full game coach pitch
Weeks 4-6 First 2 innings coach pitch; player pitch remainder of the game with coach pitch support
Weeks 7-9 Player pitch with coach pitch support

The exact length of time that full game coach pitch will be utilized at the beginning of the season will be determined by the Crown Colony Board in consultation with the Pee Wee Division coaches, and is dependent on the skill level of the players in any given year.


Coaches will pitch to their own batters.
Any certified coach can be the pitcher, not just the head coach.


Coach pitch support will be utilized at times when a player pitcher throws four balls to any batter, no matter what the strike count is.
Coaches will support their pitcher by then pitching to their own batters.
Any certified coach can be the pitcher, not just the head coach.
The coach pitcher enters the game to throw 3 pitches, giving the opportunity to the batter to swing and is encouraged to do so.
The batter does not forfeit the walk that was earned and cannot be called out for a strikeout even after swinging 3 times. 
If the batter makes contact with the ball and gets out on a defensive play, then they are called out.
During coach pitch support, the player pitcher plays the defensive fielding position.
When the batter concludes the at bat, the player pitcher returns to the mound to pitch to the next batter and the coach pitcher exits the field.
