At the Mosquito level of play, players are introduced to live pitching and the concept of stealing bases while continuing to develop their basic baseball skills of hitting, throwing, catching and base running. In the field, players are encouraged to try every position and are given equal playing time.
During regular season play, the main focus is on development and trying all players in all positions. During the playoffs, coaches may choose to focus certain players in certain positions
Teams play an inter-division schedule followed by playoffs at the end of the season.
There are two games and/or practices per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Mosquito is open to all boys and girls 10 and 11 years old. Players chosen to play on the Mosquito Select team are also required to play on a Mosquito House League team.
