FAQS

How old is my child considered to be for the baseball season?

A child's baseball age is based on how old they are on Aug 31 of the season year.  You can also use the age calculator on the Little League website: http://www.littleleague.org/leagueofficers/Determine_League_Age.htm


Does my child need to attend one of the evaluation sessions?

It is recommended that all players ages 8-12 who have not already played in the Major division should attend one of the evaluation sessions in February (see calendar for dates). The evaluations are an important tool to help the league create fair and balanced teams. Players who do not attend an evaluation session will NOT be eligible for Majors.


What division will my child be placed in?

Players are placed into divisions based on age and ability. As a guideline, players are placed as follows with some exceptions based on player's ability:

  • Majors: Ages 10-12 (all 12 year old's play in Majors unless there is an approved exception)
  • AAA: Ages 9-11 
  • AA: Ages 8-10
  • A: Ages 7-8
  • Farm: Ages 6-7
  • T-Ball: Ages 5 and 6 year old's who have not played before.


How are teams determined?

Majors thru A is determined by a draft. All returning Major players and Major eligible players are selected via a draft following the last evaluation. Subsequent drafts are held weekly for the other levels.  For Farm/Tball, players are placed on teams with the goal of trying to make the teams evenly matched and keep kids together based on their school/neighborhood to the extent possible. 


When will teams be formed and parents notified?

  • Majors: The draft will be one week after the last evaluation session. Players will be notified within a couple of days after that.
  • AAA: Draft is typically a week after the Majors draft.  Teams will be notified 1-2 weeks after Majors.
  • AA: Draft is a week after AAA and teams will be about 1 week after AAA.
  • A: Draft is a week after AA and teams will be notified about 1-2 weeks after AA.
  • Farm/T-ball: Teams will be formed and notified in early April.


What equipment will my child need?

Each player should have their own glove, cleats, baseball pants/socks and protective cup.
