2019 Dallastown Cougar Little League Spring Baseball

REGISTRATION FOR AA (7U/8U), AAA, AND MAJORS DIVISIONS IS NOW CLOSED

(Registration for T-ball, Intermediate, and 13-16 remains open)

 

PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU START THE REGISTRATION PROCESS.

 

Welcome back to another exciting year of baseball! (or if you’re new to Dallastown Cougar Little League, we're excited to have you!)

This year we are changing some things to our divisions and we’d like to make sure to clarify the differences before you start with the registration process.  Below you will find key dates on important activities that will occur during our Little League season to help you plan a little better.  If you plan on coaching, please register as early as possible.  When registering, please use the special request section if you're interested in a particular coach.  Little League requires us to complete a draft but will try our best to honor those special requests.  If you have any questions, please email league president Matt Dowell (dozerd79@gmail.com). 

 

T-Ball.  This division will now be only for ages 4-5.   T-Ball registration is open for a longer period of time, March 1st is an estimated close date, we will keep everyone informed if/when that date changes.  NO EVALUATION IS NEEDED FOR THIS AGE GROUP. 

 

AA 7U American League.  This division will be primarily coach pitch only. Great level of play for 6 and 7 year-olds.

 

AA 8U National League.  This division will be kid pitch only.  Ages 6-8 are welcome to participate in this league.  We’ve found that kids that don’t face live pitching from a kid will struggle at the next level.  This will insure that the player is ready for the next level. At the end of season there will be an All-Star team selected from this age group.  This tournament team will start practicing late June and the District tournament starts in mid-July.   After evaluation if we feel your son/daughter isn't ready for this division we will move them down to the AA 7U division. 

 

AAA Minors.  No changes to this division. At the end of season there will be an All-Star team selected from this age group.    

 

Majors (12U).  No changes to this division. At the end of season there will be an All-Star team selected from this age group. 

 

Intermediate.  We are bringing back the Intermediate age group.  This is for 13 year-olds.  The field size is 50/70 rather than the little league format. This division is part of our Little League Program.  Please see a note below...

York County 13-16.  This division is played on 90ft baseball fields.  Registration will open later and is NOT part of Little League.  An email will be sent out when we open this division. 

The following is a clarification on the difference between the Little League Intermediate division and the York County 13-16 division:

The intermediate division will consist of 13-year-olds.  They will play on a 50/70 baseball diamond and upgrade from 60’ base paths.  They will be introduced to what most umpires state “real baseball rules” but only on a smaller diamond.  These players will also have a chance to participate in an All-Star tournament at the end of the year.  That tournament will start around the 3rd week of June and depending on advancement could run till the middle of the summer.  The season co exists with the little league season except Intermediate games will be played only on the weekends and will compete in double headers.  This division was created to help those players gradually work their way up the big field (90’ base paths).  If your child is making the move from our Major division, we recommend that you would choose the Intermediate division for the 2019 season.  I will gladly take any emails if you have any questions regarding this decision

The York County division will consist of the ages from 13-16.  They will play on a full-size baseball field which consists of 90’ base paths.  There will be a try-out held at the beginning of the season.    The season runs at a later time so any player that competed in our Intermediate division could also play in the York County league when the little league season ends.  A little recommendation from what I’ve heard in the past is 13-year-olds who make this jump really struggle on this field.
