*6 year olds that have played a season of Little League T-Ball are eligible for Machine Pitch                                

**8 year olds may try-out for placement into Minors, provided that they qualify by attending Skills Evaluation Day & scoring well enough to warrant placement.

***12 attending skills evaluations must be drafted to a Little League Major Division team. Exceptions can be made if approved by the league Board of Directors and the parent of the candidate. Approval from the District Administrator is also required.

 

There will be NO OTHER EXCEPTIONS made to these divisions due to outstanding ability, advanced skill levels or grade level in school, etc.  You will note that 8 - 12 year olds are eligible for different divisions. They will be placed in the appropriate division based on their performance at Skills Evaluation Day.

 

 

How are DTQ teams formed?

T-BALL

T-Ball teams will consist of all 4, 5, and 6 year olds. T-Ball teams are put together based on neighborhoods as much as possible.  We also try to accommodate requests for carpools, friends, preferred coaches, babysitters, etc.  Since we have so many different factors to consider, sometimes simple geography is not always followed.  Requests must be made in writing.  The number of children in the lower levels, and the availability of manager/coach volunteers also affect team selections. Late registrants are not as likely to have their requests filled. T Ball teams usually have 2 events a week. They may be on weeknights or Saturday. No Sunday games.

 

MACHINE PITCH BASEBALL

Machine Pitch will consist of 6, 7 and 8 year olds. Only 6 year olds with one year of DTQ T-Ball are eligible to play. MP Division teams are put together based on neighborhoods as much as possible.  We also try to accommodate requests for carpools, friends, preferred coaches, babysitters, etc.  Since we have so many different factors to consider, sometimes simple geography is not always followed.  Requests must be made in writing.  The number of children in the lower levels, and the availability of manager/coach volunteers also affect team selections. Late registrants are not as likely to have their requests filled. Machine Pitch teams usually have 2 events a week. They may be weeknights or Saturday. No Sunday games.

 

MINORS AMERICAN – PLAYER PITCH BASEBALL

Minors A will consist of 8, 9 and 10 year old players. 8 year olds MUST attend Skills Evaluation Day or will be placed in Machine Pitch Division. Players will be placed on teams based on the skill level exhibited during Skills Evaluation Day. At SED, all participants are given an average score compiled from the scores of the evaluating managers and placing the same number of equally talented players on each team then forms teams. We also try to give each team a balanced number of each age group, as well as an equitable number of “experienced” and “inexperienced” players. The division coordinator forms teams not the team managers. NO REQUESTS ARE TAKEN IN MINORS.

 

MINORS NATIONAL – PLAYER PITCH BASEBALL

Minors N will consist of 9, 10, and 11 year old players. Players will be placed on teams based on the skill level exhibited during Skills Evaluation Day. At SED, all participants are given an average score compiled from the scores of the evaluating managers.  Placing the same number of equally talented players on each team then forms the teams. We also try to give each team a balanced number of each age group, as well as an equitable number of “experienced” and “inexperienced” players. The division coordinator forms teams not the team managers. 

Special Note:  Minor players that were eligible for the Majors draft (not opted out), are still eligible to be pulled up during the season to replace players that have dropped out.  If you do not want your child to be pulled up during the season, you must opt them out of the draft beforehand! 

NO REQUESTS ARE TAKEN IN MINORS.

 

MAJOR DIVISION BASEBALL

All 10-12 year olds who have participated in the Skills Evaluation process are eligible for consideration for the Major Division. In this division, the team managers draft teams. Teams are formed solely on the managers’ selections of players they wish to select for their team, based on their team’s needs. As per Little League rules, each player selected to a Major team will remain on that team from year to year, until he/she becomes too old for that division. In this way, some teams have more “openings” each year than others. The draft takes place confidentially each year and team managers take turns picking players until their allotted slots are filled. Players not selected for a Major team are then placed on teams, based on their scores, in the Minor divisions.

 

JUNIOR & SENIOR LEAGUE

JR League will consist of 13 and 14 year olds. SR League will consist of 14-16 year olds. SR & JR League teams are formed much the same way as the Major teams. Each team’s respective manager will draft them. The JR team draft is conducted after the SR draft and teams are filled with players that were not selected to fill the allotted openings on the current year’s SR teams. As in the Major Division, SR teams remain intact from year to year, and Junior teams are disbanded each year.

 

BIG LEAGUE

Big League will consist of 17 and 18 year olds.
