Most Recreation Associations also offer leagues for youth under age 10 called "farm leagues.​" 

Recreation Associations will charge a player registration fee. Fees charged and sports/age groups offered vary by area. Players must attend school (K-12) to be eligible. High school varsity and junior varsity players are not eligible for the same community league sport.​​​​​​
