Age and Residency Requirements
To determine your child's Little League age for the 2022 Fall and 2023 Spring seasons,` use the following chart.
Or use the Little League age calculator: https://www.littleleague.org/play-little-league/determine-league-age/
- If your child is 4 by 8/31/23, Wiffle Ball (no Wiffle Balll during the fall)
If your child is 5 by 8/31/23, T-Ball
If your child is 6 by 8/31/23, T-Ball (default) or Coach Pitch (by parent request if player played PALL T-Ball in the previous spring)
If your child is 7 by 8/31/23, Coach Pitch
If your child is 8 by 8/31/23, AA (formerly Pitching Machine)
If your child is 9 by 8/31/23, AAA (default) or PCL/Majors via Tryout and Draft*

If your child is 12 by 8/31/23, Majors via tryout and draft* or PCL at parents’ option (specify preference during registration) or 50/70 via tryout**
If your child is 13, 14, or 15 by 8/31/23, Juniors (50/70 or 54/80) with mandatory tryout**
* A manager draft is used at Majors and PCL (Minors) levels. Players who have previously played in PCL or Majors MUST ATTEND A TRYOUT to be guaranteed placement in the same league.
** Juniors require player tryouts. Since space is limited, not all players who tryout are selected to play on a Juniors team.
Determination and validation of a player’s “Little League Age” is essential for placement into the appropriate level of play and to qualify for post-season Tournament play in the advanced levels. Adequate documentation must be presented at the time of the original registration of a player in the league, and re-examination of the documentation will be required prior to qualification for Tournament play. Original proof-of-age documents issued by federal, state or provincial registrars of vital statistics, or local offices thereof, are acceptable proof of age, provided the documents were issued within thirty (30) days of the birth of the child. Such documents may be photocopies. A “Statement in Lieu of Acceptable Proof of Birth” issued by a Little League Regional Headquarters is also acceptable; contact the PALL Director of Registration for instructions regarding how to obtain such a statement.
NOT ACCEPTABLE AS SOLE PROOF OF BIRTH: Baptismal Certificate; Certificate of Blessing; Certificate of Dedication; Certificate of Circumcision, etc.; Hospital Certificate; photocopied records.
