The Independence Parks & Recreation Department continues to offer a wide variety of baseball and softball leagues for youth. Our Little League Program includes: T-ball offered to boys and girls as young as 4 years old (age as of April 15th of the current year), Coach-Pitch for boys and girls currently in Kindergarten & 1st grade, Minors which is a pitching machine league offered for girls and boys currently in 2nd & 3rd grades, and Majors which is a pitch league for boys and girls currently in 4th, 5th & 6th grades. We have expanded over the years and offer travel leagues for current 5th graders, 6th graders and 7th graders. All of these leagues, with the exception of 7th grade girls softball, is coached by our volunteer coaches. We are extremely appreciative of the time and energy they give to the children in these leagues. We are also awarded the opportunity of a local indoor facility for kids and adults to get some hitting and pitching in all year long. River'sEDGE Sport & Fitness is a valuable multi-purpose facility which houses 5 indoor batting cages with machines for hitting and pitching. Individual Coaching, Clinics, Spring Training, Hitting and Pitching Leagues, and Demo Days are offered at various times through the year. Stop by 206 2nd Ave SW, Independence and check it out, we are pretty proud of it!!
