PLACEMENT GUIDELINES

These guidelines are a reference for the parents and league officials to assist in determining  player placement for the TCNLL divisions of play. They are subject to approval and modification by the Board of Directors. In addition to baseball skills, TCNLL places its primary emphasis on teaching our youngsters the concepts of fair play, good sportsmanship, and team participation. Our goal is to ensure that players are assigned to teams appropriate  to their age, physical and well being  and skills while maintaining balanced teams.

Exceptions are made with the recommendation of the Player Agent and President with the Board of Directors approval

During the month of January after the tryouts are completed, the drafting of teams are held under the supervision of the President, the Vice President and Player Agent.  Drafts are held in strict adherence to the rules outlined in the Little League Operating Manual.  Every effort is made to form balanced teams.  

AFTER THE DRAFT

After the draft the manager will call their players welcoming them to the team.  The parents and players will meet the Manager at the parent meeting and will inform players of the first practice session and other league information
