Division Info

Registration is broken down into these "programs": T-Ball, Minors, Majors, and Juniors.  We also break down the Minors program into subdivisions.   You may notice your childs age is mentioned in more than one program/division.   Players are placed based on a number of criteria including tryouts, league age, coach availability, league size and other Little League rules.  Divisions are also dependent on league size and coaching availability and some playing rules may be altered to adapt to interleague play with other cities.  Please select what division you expect your child to play as part of your registration.

T-Ball: League Ages 4-7 although 7 year olds must be first time players and will be evaluated on the basis of maintaining player safety.  Instructional program for mostly first time players where fundamentals are emphasized in a fun environment.  Friend requests are encouraged as well as coaches recruiting players to join the league to play on their team.  Teams will be formed by the player agent along with manager input.  Players will hit off the tee the entire season.  No coach pitch is allowed.  Players will bat the entire lineup every inning.  One weekday and one Saturday game will be played with a time limit of 1 hour 15 minutes.  Practice times are at the discretion of the manager but not to exceed twice per week.

Minors:

Machine Pitch:  League Ages 5-7 although 5 and 6 year olds must have completed at least one year of T-Ball.  Replaces Coach Pitch Division of years past with mostly same rules.  Players will receive 5 pitches from "Zooka" pitching machine and will use the tee if unsuccessful.  A safety ball will be used all season.  Players rotate positions in the field. Teams will be formed by the player agent along with manager input.  Friend requests are encouraged as well as coaches recruiting players to join the league to play on their team.  One weekday game and one Saturday game will be played with a time limt of 1 hour 30 minutes.  Practice times are at the discretion of the manager but not to exceed twice per week.

 

Single A:  Mainly League Ages 7-9.  5 and 6 year olds are not permitted in this division.  Single A will utilize the "Zooka" pitching machine during the first half of the season and kid pitch the second half.  This division utilizes a regulation hard ball.  5 strike zone pitches or 3 swinging strikes will define an at bat from the machine.  This division more closely resembles the rules of baseball we all know as far as recording 3 outs to end an inning.  Teams will bat the entire lineup though.  Minimum playing requirements must be met for each game.  Limited base stealing rules are in effect as well.  Kid pitch walks will result in 3 coach pitches.  7 year olds are strongly encouraged to try out for this division while 8 year olds and above are required to attend a try out.  Teams will be formed by a manager draft.

AA:  Mainly League Ages 8-10.  AA is kid pitch all the time, walks included. Teams will still bat the entire lineup.  Minimum playing requirements must be met each game.   Less rotation of positions in the field.  Although instructional in nature, competitiveness begins to pick up here.  Players will be drafted based on a number of criteria including try out performance, league age, coach availability, league size and other Little League rules.

AAA:  Mainly League Ages 9-11.   Teams still bat entire line up.  Post season tournament play is available for players in the 9-10 bracket and 10-11 bracket.

Majors:  Available to League Ages 9-12.  60' basepaths.  46' pitching rubber.  Competitive baseball you see at the Little League World Series is begun at this level during the regular season.  Teams bat a lineup of 9 players and substitutions are in play while still maintaining a minimum playing requirement.  Post season tournament play in the 11-12 bracket.

Juniors:  Available to League Ages 12-14.  90' basepaths.  60'-6" pitching rubber.  Next step... High School
