Calculating Your Player's League Age
You may use this league age calculator or this softball league age chart.

Team Formation
Teams are formed with two things in mind: (1) league age and (2) experience/skills.  On the latter, the overall philosophy is that the best-fit level for a player is one in which they are challenged but not frustrated.  We recognize that friendships are particularly important so will try our best to honor friend requests at the Rookie and A levels.  At AA and above -- and particularly if there are multiple teams in a division -- we use a draft process to allow for a fair distribution of players.

Note:  The divisions overlap in age eligibility, so your player may be eligible for two divisions.  If this is concerning for confusing, please contact [email protected].

DIVISIONAL DETAILS

Softball Rookie (league ages 5-7) – Designed for players who have at least one year of tee ball experience.  This is the first opportunity to hit a pitched safety (squishy) softball from a coach. The division focuses on developing fundamental skills over competition.  Teams will meet once or twice a week for practices/games.

Softball A  (league ages 7-8) – Based on prior tee ball, softball, or baseball experience, some league-age 6 year olds may be eligible.  Like the rookie division, A-level softball focuses primarily on skill development but with more emphasis on a structured game play setting. A-level softball plays with modified rules and is either coach or machine pitch. Teams typically meet twice per week for practices/games.

Softball AA  (league ages 8-9) – This division fills the developmental, skill and competitive gap between A and AAA, and at this level players will pitch a portion of every game. League age 9 players may be eligible to be selected for an All-Star Team. Teams typically meet twice per week for practices/games.

Softball AAA (league ages 9 -11) – AAA continues the skill development of the lower divisions, but transitions to truly competitive games and players pitch the entire game. Games are played using the official rules of Little League Softball and teams compete in city-wide end of season playoffs.  Players who are at least league age nine are eligible to be selected to an All-Star Team. Teams meet two to three times per week.

Softball Majors (league ages 10-12) – Majors encourages a higher level of skill to achieve more competitive levels. Games are played using the official rules of Little League Softball. All players are eligible to be selected to the All Star Team that competes for the Little League World Series. Players may be asked to attend a skill evaluation to be considered for this division. Teams typically meet three times per week.

Softball Juniors (league ages 13-14) – Competitive games. May include double headers on weekends & games expect to be all or mostly inter-league with travel to all away games. Players are eligible to be considered for All-Stars that may compete for the Junior League World Series.  Teams typically meet three times per week.
