Spring DI/DII Overview
The Kingwood/Forest Cove Baseball program consists of the following options for players dependent upon their age and skill set. The DI/DII programs are based upon registration numbers.
Within the General League structure KW/FC provides two playing divisions in some age groups based upon the number of participants registered and if interest warrants. These divisions are typically available in the Pinto and Mustang ages, again based upon the number of participants and if interest warrants.
- League Division I (Competitive-Advanced Recreational): Comprising approximately 35% of an age group DI offers more competitive play for the more advanced player. Typically, in an age that has enough participants there are 4-5 teams formed. Teams are selected by a tryout (note: not everyone is selected who attends the tryout). All players not making a DI team will be placed in the DII player pool. DI League typically selects end-of-season team(s) to participate in the PONY National Tournament series. DI is more competitive play level. Players are expected to have above average skills
- League Division II (Recreational): Comprising approximately 55% of an age group DII with teams drafted after a tryout (note: all players who register are drafted). In DII there is more emphasis on fundamental instruction, everyone makes a team.
