FAQ

How old does my child need to be to sign up?

Programs are available for kids ages 4-12. Those who are 4 years old or will turn 4 by August 31st can sign up for tee ball. Those turning 13 ON August 31 or later are NOT eligible to play.  

What are the different levels in Little League?  What level will my child be?

Little League is for boys and girls ages 4 through 12.  It is organized into tee ball/coach pitch (4-7 years old), minors (8-10) and majors (11,12).  Your child's placement will follow these guidelines but we will sometimes adjust based on team balancing or a particular child's needs.

Tee Ball/Coach Pitch:

A: 4 and 5 year olds, new players.  We use a  structured tee ball program designed by Little League, focused on fun and safety.  At this age we're making it enjoyable so they want to keep coming.

AA: 6 and 7 year olds, returning payers.  At this level we're using coach pitch more than the tee.  We're working on throwing and catching and still focused on fun and safety, while introducing the fundamental baseball skills.

AAA: 7 and (new) 8 year olds, returning players.  At this level we're using coach pitch and starting to play short games.  We introduce the catcher position.  Now we're playing baseball while still focusing most of the time on drills and practice to  develop solid fundamentals.


Minors & Majors - Kid Pitch:

Minors: 8-10 year olds.  For the regular season we may bring up some 8 year olds who are more experienced.  For All Star tournament eligibility there are very strict age rules.  The step from AAA to Minors is big.  Players do most of the pitching.  We travel to other towns in the area.  Games are Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.  We spend most of the season in actual games, but we slow it down to find coachable moments within the game.

Majors:
11 and 12 year olds.  This is the highest level of Little League organized baseball we offer.   Games are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

13+ options include Babe Ruth (the MMU district middle schools form one to two teams each season), and AAU.
