Age Determination Date Clarification

FOR BASEBALL DIVISIONS ONLY 

In April, 2014 the International Congress approved the new league age determination amendment for Little League Baseball®.  To implement the new amendment, it was decided to include a three-year waiting period to execute the change, starting in 2018. Questions from the field were raised about the impact the change would have on players that were currently league age 8 under the traditional system.  Using feedback from Little League® parents through our District Administrators, the Little League International Board of Directors adjusted the April-approved implementation strategy in order to modify the impact on all of our minor and major division players. The adjustment also allows for an easier transition for players in the early years of Little League participation. 

As a result of this recent adjustment to the implementation strategy, effective immediately, any player born on or after January 1, 2006 who will turn the ages of 4-9 during the 2015 calendar year will be eligible to participate in a local Little League program and will use the new age determination date ofDecember 31 for the reminder of their Little League Baseball career. Players will still be assigned to a division based on local league divisional structure. 

 

Consequently, players born prior to January 1, 2006 will continue to utilize the current age determination date of April 30 for the remainder of their Little League career.

 

As stated, with this implementation strategy adjustment the impact on our players will be reduced, with the exception of a marginal impact on players currently participating in the very early stages of their Little League career. Furthermore, our continued focus on fun, fitness and fundamentals at the Tee Ball Division will assist local leagues as they look to provide a smooth transition to the Coach/Machine Pitch divisions of play while still developing a passion for the game as well as focusing on skill development. 

This change ensures that no player will lose a year of participation in the Little League Majors Division that culminates with the annual Little League Baseball World Series in South Williamsport, Pa.

2015 Little League Residency Exception

Residency and School Attendance Eligibility

In an effort to accommodate for Little Leaguers to play with their classmates, and ease the burden on parents and guardians, Little League has amended its residency requirements to allow children to play in the local league whose boundaries where they attend school is located. To verify enrollment, parents will need to bring an official school document, such as a report card or school enrollment form, confirming enrollment in the school for the current academic year, dated before October 1, 2014.

“Little League is always looking for more ways to give all children the opportunity to have the best Little League experience possible,” said Patrick Wilson, Little League Senior Vice President of Operations and Program Development. “This new rule will provide more flexibility for families to participate in the leagues that best fits their children.”
