T-Ball and Farm typically play on Sunday afternoon and one weeknight. All other divisions have games any day, typically on Sunday afternoon and one to two games during the week with some Saturdays.
As we have done for the past several years we will have the following divisions in 2013 for players in grades 3-6 who are not eligible to play in the Majors or who have not been drafted by a Majors team:
AA (formerly College) Division: This division is a developmental league and coaches are expected to emphasize having fun while teaching players fundamental baseball skills. Players pitch, scores and standings are kept, bunting is allowed, and limited base stealing is permitted. Games should be competitive, but coaches should utilize game situations to teach correct situational play and decision-making. Players will play a variety of positions.
AAA (formerly Cooperstown) Division: This division is a more advanced league for players who have demonstrated a greater proficiency of baseball fundamentals. There is a continual emphasis on building and developing further baseball skills in a more competitive environment. Players pitch, scores and standings are kept, and base stealing (to third base) and bunts are permitted.
Note: Little League age 12 players may play in the minors by waiver only.
Players will be assigned to a Minors division by the league commissioners based upon previous coach evaluations and player tryouts. Players who wish to play in the AAA Division must attend the tryout. The purpose of having these two divisions is so players are placed at the appropriate level based upon their skills and experience to ensure skill development and enjoyment of the game.
Details regarding the tryout schedule for Majors and Minors will be posted later to the website and our newsletter.
Per Little League rules, only players Little League Age 10-12 are permitted to play in the Majors division. If your child would like to try out for the Majors then they should be registered for that division. Players drafted by a Majors team must play in the Majors; players not selected in the draft will be assigned to a Minors (AAA or AA) team by the commissioners. To verify your player's age eligibility go to the Little League Age Calculator.
