10 year olds who have not qualified to play in Majors or AAA will be assigned to this division.

Games in AA are played at Blueridge and Seycove diamonds

Team Formation:
All teams are re-formed each year using a draft conducted by the coaches in the division and the league's Player Agent, according to rules established by Little League International.

Post-season Opportunities:
8 and 9 year olds in AA may try out for the 9-year old All-Star Team, and 9 & 10 year olds may try out for the 9/10 All-Star Team.




AAA


This division is for 9-11, as well as 12 yr olds and, in unusual circumstances, for very qualified 8 year olds. 12 year olds who wish to play AAA instead of Majors must write to the league for permission to do so.

 

Players in AAA must attend skills assessment sessions (usually held in February) so that teams can be balanced to provide competitive play.

Post-season Opportunities:
8 & 9 year olds who play in this division may try out for the 9 Year Old All-Star Team, and 9 and 10 year olds who play in AAA may try out for the 9/10 All-Star Team. 11 and 12 year olds in this division may play post-season tournaments when and if coaches and tournaments are available.

Important Note: Little League rules stipulate that the only players eligible to participate in Majors All-Stars are those who played in the Majors division for the regular season. Therefore players in the AAA division do not qualify to participate on the Majors All-Star team.



Majors

This division is the most competitive division for 9-12 year olds. Note: Little League rules stipulate that 8 year olds cannot play in this division. All players, except 12 year olds and those who played in the Majors division last year, must qualify to play in this division by first attending assessment sessions. The top scoring players from assessments are invited to Majors tryouts.

All returning players plus those invited from the assessment sessions must attend Majors tryouts, so that teams can be balanced. All teams are completely re-drafted each year - i.e. players do not automatically return to the team they played on last year.

All games for this division with the exception of the Interlock games are played at Myrtle Park.

Team Formation:

Teams are formed using a draft conducted by the coaches in the division and the League's Player Agent.

Post-season Opportunities:
