How Are Teams Made?

In our older Divisions, players are assessed for all of their fundamental baseball skills at the beginning of the season at a mass try-out. Teams will then be drafted to ensure an even distribution of skills across all the teams. 


Can I Request That My Child Be Placed With A Friend?

While siblings will always be placed on the same team, we cannot guarantee that all requests for friends or neighbours to be put together can be fulfilled. Remember - Each new teammate is an opportunity for a new life-long friend!


What Do I Need to Bring or Supply?

Uniforms, bats and catcher's equipment are provided by the league.

Please send your player to the diamond with their own:
Glove,
Batting helmet,
Comfortable running shoes or cleats,
Jock or Jill, 
Water bottle, and
Sunscreen.

Note that players choosing to bring their own bat must ensure that it has the USA Baseball logo to meet Little League Standards.


How Do I Know What Division to Register My Child For?

The Division that a child plays in will be based on their "Little League Age". To determine a player’s "Little League Age", use the age chart below. Simply intersect the month and year of birth on the chart and check the farthest righthand column to see the division that applies.
