Q:  I registered online. Do I also need to go to the in-person registration at Lowell Scott Middle School?

A: Yes, the league needs to verify your son/daughter's age and your place of residency. Please bring your child's birth certificate and a current utility bill.

 

Q:  How is a player's league age determined?

A:  In April 2014, the International Congress approved the new league age determination amendment for Little League Baseball®. To implement the new amendment, it was decided to include a three-year waiting period to execute the change, starting in 2018. Questions from the field were raised about the impact the change would have on players that were currently league age 8 under the traditional system. Using feedback from Little League® parents through our District Administrators, the Little League International Board of Directors adjusted the April-approved implementation strategy in order to modify the impact on all of our minor and major division players. The adjustment also allows for an easier transition for players in the early years of Little League participation.

As a result of this recent adjustment to the implementation strategy, effective immediately, any player born on or after January 1, 2006 who will turn the ages of 4-9 during the 2015 calendar year will be eligible to participate in a local Little League program and will use the new age determination date of December 31 for the remainder of their Little League Baseball career. Players will still be assigned to a division based on local league divisional structure.

Consequently, players born prior to January 1, 2006 will continue to utilize the current age determination date of April 30 for the next three Little League Baseball seasons. Starting with the 2018 Little League Baseball season, all players will utilize the age determination date of December 31.

 

Q: What divisions are players assessed?

A: Players in AA, AAA, Majors and Juniors will be assessed.

 

Q: Why are players assessed?

A: Players are drafted by coaches based on their demonstrated abilities in assessments. Players who are not drafted will be placed in their age division.

 

Q: What should I expect at assessments?

A: Players will: 1) field three ground balls from shortstop and throw to first base, 2) catch three fly balls in center field and throw them to second base and 3) will get five pitches to swing at and run the last one to third base.

 

Q: How are Rookie and T-Ball teams formed?

A: The T-Ball director tries to create teams based on schools, neighborhoods. The following are also considered, in order given: 1) ensuring each team has a manager and a coach and 2) attempting to accommodate teammate requests.
