2016 Little League Age Chart
FOR BASEBALL DIVISION ONLY
Match month (top line) and box with year of birth. League age indicated at right.
Note: This age chart is for BASEBALL DIVISIONS ONLY, and only for 2016.
Little League Age Change Again for 2016 - Little League International has again made an adjustment to the age cut-off dates that will impact most of our younger aged players. Last year, many of our younger players were affected by a change made by Little League to move the age cut- off date from April 30 to December 31 of any given year. In September 2015, Little League decided to modify the cut-off date, and pull it back by four months to August 31. Starting in 2018, a player's "baseball age" will be determined as of August 31. As before, these changes only affect players born in 2005 or later. Please carefully consult the age chart above. For more information about this change please see the update from Little League.
BRSLL offers the following Divisions for the following ages. Please refer to the Spring 2016 age chart for more information.
|Intermediate (50/70) (Player Pitch)||13|
|Majors (Player Pitch)||10 - 12|
|AAA (Player Pitch)||9 - 11|
|AA (Machine Pitch)||8 - 10|
|Farm (Machine Pitch)||7 - 8|
|T-Ball (Hit From Tee)||5 - 6|
Exceptions: "Playing up" a division
Players who played in other leagues may also qualify for these exceptions, but BRSLL will require a recommendation from their previous league.
Note: Final division placement for Upper Division (Majors, AAA, AA) players will be based on tryout performance.
Exceptions: "Playing down" a division
Things to consider in deciding whether to play up or down. As part of the registration process, you will be asked to specify a division preference consistent with the age requirements and rules listed above. The decision of whether to choose a higher or lower division for your child's age group can be a difficult one, so we offer here a few things to consider.
Tryouts are required for our Intermediate, Majors, AAA and AA divisions, even for players who have already played in them before. Players can indicate their preferred division as part of the registration process, but final division assignments will depend on tryout performance. If you register for the Intermediate, Majors, AAA or AA division, information on tryouts will be sent to you by email later in December. Tryout dates will be in January 2016 and players must attend at least one session.
Residence and School Attendance Requirements
Players must live or attend a school physically located within BRSLL's territorial boundaries in order to participate in our league. Our territory includes Belmont, Redwood Shores, a small portion of northwest San Carlos (Crestview/Club) and the San Mateo neighborhood bordering Belmont south of Laurie Meadows Park. Please consult our boundary map before you register with BRSLL.
Team Assignment Policy
Upper level teams (Intermediate, Majors, AAA, AA) are selected via a draft process based on tryouts / workouts results. Lower level teams are randomly assigned, although we try to ensure that players have teammates from the same school and grade. Coach and/or teammate requests for Tball and Farm can be made as part of the registration process, however these requests cannot be guaranteed. An exception will be made for children of team managers / coaches (who will be assigned to their parents' team), and for siblings in the same division (who will be assigned to the same team).
BRSLL tries to make room for all interested players, however we are sometimes faced with having to close divisions as they fill up. We encourage you to register as early as possible in order to secure a place in our league. If the division you are interested in joining is closed, you will be added to our wait list.
BRSLL depends on volunteers to provide its programs to the community. Volunteers interested in being considered for Manager and Coaching positions MUST register on-line for these positions.
The Belmont Redwood Shores Little League Board of Directors thank you for your support.
