Elite Division:

This division is for Majors and AAA level tournament teams only. Teams are selected by invitation only, based on rankings and referrals from known coaches. 


The benefits of this division include:

Quality competition

Real baseball rules-MLB modified

Teams can focus on development without being in a tournament environment

Teams can help keep pitchers and hitters in a consistent conditioning routine, rather than a biweekly or less tournament schedule

Convenient and flexible scheduling around to accommodate other commitments

Opportunity to get a practice field once per week (discounted rates with no practice field)

Divisions will be 12U, 13U, and 14U. A team can play up in age division if they qualify based on skill.


Standard PONY rules will apply. Age determination: For fall, winter, and spring – teams can choose either the 4/30/18 or the 8/31/18 cut-off for their team age, but in the spring, if a team chooses the 4/30/18 cut-off, any players on that team who age up per the 8/31/18 cut-off, will not be eligible for PONY post–season play.

12 game season, (Doubleheaders only) starts September 5, 2017, and will be finished by December 16, 2017. The winning team in the Elite division will be granted a berth in the 2018 Spring PONY State Championships as long as they play during the spring season.


Games will be played on weekends, and some midweek games on Tuesday and Thursday nights, so we can work around the tournament schedule of our teams. Teams need to notify us of the dates and times that they cannot play, no later than August 15, 2017.

Team registration fee of $1950 includes league insurance, two umpires per game, two new baseballs per team per game, field and light rental, and field prep. Teams in the Scottsdale/North Phoenix area, may receive one practice field per week. There will be a discount of $250 if a team does not receive a practice field. For organizations that have four or more teams in our leagues, we will discount the registration fee by $100 per team.  


Team registration and deposit of $300 is due on August 9, 2017, the balance must be paid no later than August 20th. There will be a late registration fee of $150 for any team that is not registered and paid in full by August 20th, 2017.
