The Tomball Kings 12U division serves players whose playing ages are 12U and 11U.
For the 2023-2024 academic year, the term “playing age” means a player’s calendar age as of April 30, 2024.
We offer players in our 12U division opportunities for spring and fall baseball competition, along with year-round classes and other programs for training and skills development. In both the spring and fall seasons, our 12U teams compete in the Spring Klein Baseball League.
Spring is the primary, competitive season for our 12U division, featuring league games as well as practices.
During the fall season, we enter 12U teams in league play but do not practice, in order to allow players to devote time to other athletic pursuits.
All players on a 12U roster, whether for spring or fall, receive roster invitations pursuant to a player evaluation (“tryout”) conducted by our coaches. We do not carry rosters forward from season to season. Prior to each season, we hold an open tryout that welcomes new and returning players to compete for available roster spots.
We will typically have twelve players on a game roster. All players on a game roster will bat and no player will sit more than one inning at a time. We may field more than one 12U team in a given season, e.g., “12U Red” and “12U Blue” teams.
