Clackamas Little League: 2010 Season Divisions

Select Season:  
Tee Ball Baseball/Softball
For players league ages five (5) through seven (7). This division is our instructional/developmental division, designed for safety and first-time players. Formatted in a three inning, all-roster hit and field game using a soft, limited flight safety ball hit from a batting tee, the Tee Ball division serves as a quick, fun introduction to the sport. Coaches are allowed to pitch to the batter if the players skill so warrants.

Farm Softball
Players league ages seven (7) to nine (9) can participate in the CLL Farm Softball program. Six (6) year-olds are eligible for Farm if they have one (1) year of Tee Ball. Because of the age difference, we strongly suggest that only advanced six-year-olds consider participating in the Farm division. Farm games consist of six innings with players assuming the role as pitcher using a regular baseball. Note: coaches pitch for the first third of the season; the second third of the season will have players pitching and coaches pitching as needed; the final third of the season will be all player pitch.

Minor Softball
Players league ages eight(8) to eleven (11) can participate in the CLL Minor division. We recommend that only advanced eight-year-olds participate in this division. Games consist of six innings played under Little League rules. Note: This division is all player pitch.

Major Softball
It is recommend that only advanced ten-year-olds participate in this division. Players league ages ten (10) to twelve (12) are eligible for a major division. This division is for those players with established skills and experience in playing organized softball. Players should exhibit strong fundamentals of the game. This level involves advanced competitive play.

Once a player has been drafted to a Majors level team, they do not need to try out the following season(s); they will remain with this team for the duration of their playing time at the Majors level.

Ten-, 11- and 12-year-olds wishing to be eligible for an All-Star team must also try out if this is the player's first year at the Majors level.


Junior Softball
Junior Softball for girls ages 13 and 14. Junior Softball is our competitive play division for girls ages 13 and 14. Teams participate in inter-league play with other District 2 teams and a few tournaments during the season.

Senior Softball
Senior Baseball is our competitive play division for girls ages 15-18. Teams participate in league play and a few tournaments during the season.


Rookie Baseball
The Rookie Division is for baseball players league age six (6) to eight (8). This division will focus on individual positions while also encouraging a team-oriented atmosphere. If your child is ready to step out of the Tee Ball Division, but needs a little more focused attention on general skills before moving on to Farm, then this is the division for your child. To play in the Rookie Division, we require that your child either have one year of Tee Ball experience or try out for the Farm Division. If, during Farm try-outs, the league and its coaches determine that Rookie Division would be a better fit, that is where your child will be placed. We plan to use pitching machines for the games and focus on each individual position during practices. The goal is to find the best fit for your child and help him or her see the importance of EACH POSITION.
