Spring League Listings by Age

This page is intended to help you determine which Spring league(s) you may play in, based on your school grade or "Little League" age. For 2014, "Little League" age is your child's age on 4/30/2014 for baseball, or 12/31/2013 for softball. Baseball is open to both boys and girls; softball is girls only. This information is current as of Spring 2014.

Baseball

Baseball is available to boys and girls who are pre-k to 16 years old. In our baseball leagues, for the younger kids, we organize the leagues by grade. You can read more about why we do this. For kids 9 and up, we organize by age and skill-level. There is some overlap between our grade-based system and age-based system in 3rd grade (9 year olds, primarily), so if you fall into this category, read about each one.
