LLLL is comprised of different divisions appropriate to the players’ age and skill level.
The following is the age break down of the divisions:
T-Ball (5 – 6)
Developmental – Machine Pitch (7 -8)

AA (8 – 10)
AAA (9 – 11)
Majors (10 – 12)

All players aged 5 and 6 play in T-Ball.
All 7-year-olds play in Developmental which utilizes a pitching machine.
When the player reaches the league age of 8, they must attend Spring Player Assessments and be entered into the LLLL draft. 2013 Player Assessments will be held February 19, 20, 21 and 23. Please see the Player Assessments news item on the home page of this website. The LLLL player draft will be completed by mid-March. If a player fails to make the scheduled Player Assessments, they are either placed in 1) the lowest division appropriate for their age or 2) the division that they played in the previous Spring season.
The Spring season generally runs from mid-April to mid-June. Practices begin in late March.
LLLL also has a less competitive Fall season that runs from early September until late October with practices beginning in late August. There are no tryouts in the Fall and players are generally placed one division higher than the division they played in the Spring. If players did not play in the Spring, they will be placed in the appropriate division. The level of play during the Fall season has no beaing on the assignment of players to divisions/teams in the following Spring season.
