    2. Registration closes August 11, 2022.

    1. Ages 13, 14, and 15 (born between 9.1.07 and 8.31.10)–Juniors/Intermediate

  6. All 11- and 12-year-olds must attend a mandatory evaluation session, which will be held on a Saturday following the close of registration.
    1. Placement on a Fall Ball Little League A team does not guarantee that the player will be placed on a Spring 2023 Majors team.
  7. Depending on the number of players, there may be tryouts for the Juniors/Intermediate teams.
  8. Little League A teams are formed by a committee consisting of the Majors player agent, skill evaluators, team managers, and other league administrators. It is expected that teams will be formed within one week of the close of registration. The considerations for Little League A team formations are
    1. Team balance
    2. Friend requests (not guaranteed)
    3. School teams
  9. Little League B, Coach Pitch, and T-Ball teams are primarily school- and friend-based. The teams are formed by the player agents and the teams will be formed in the days following the close of registration.
    1. Playing on a Fall Ball Coach Pitch team does not fulfill the one-year requirement of Coach Pitch experience for 8-year-olds hoping to play in the Spring 2023 Minors division.
  10. There is one weekday and one Saturday game scheduled for every team, every week.
  11. Little League A and Little League B seasons conclude with single elimination tournaments in late October.
