Age FAQ's 

- LYBO allows in-house recreational players to play with their AGE or play at an older age division at the discretion of the VP of Development. 
- Kids play Fall Ball in the age division they will be in the upcoming Spring. 
- Note that LYBO sets age divisions based on 2 year windows of 8U, 10U Minors, 12U Majors, but reserves the right to include a younger player within 3 years of the upper limit per Little League.
- Requests can be made at [email protected] but they are just requests.

Examples:
- A player's birthday is August 17, 2016. S/he is 5, turning 6 in Aug of 2022. Should s/he play fall in the 6U group? No, we play fall ball at the age they will be in the spring. And according to LL age calc, s/he is actually in 7U in the spring so s/he will play in 7/8U for fall.

Below are details and age ranges for 2022 Spring season.

5U Tee Ball – DOB 9/1/16 - 8/31/18 – League Coordinator - Lee Rossman
This is instructional tee-ball with coaches on the field.  Teams will be created after coaches are selected and all efforts will be made to ensure parity is established and to remember learning and having fun as the focus. We keep the team sizes small so players are more engaged and there is less waiting, more opportunity.  Team size and formation is managed by the VP Player Development and the league director.  

Teams play games on Saturday morning/early afternoon at LECC. The season will begin in late April (weather permitting). We hope to have fields open in March for practice. Practice days will be at coach discretion and historically only a few practices occur before the season actually starts. 

Season schedule typically includes 10 games with 8 on Saturday and 2 during the week (again, weather permitting). 

6U Coach Pitch DOB 9/1/15 - 8/31/16 – League Coordinator - Lee Rossman
This is all instructional coach pitch with coaches on the field.  Teams will be created after coaches are selected and all efforts will be made to ensure parity is established and to remember learning and having fun as the focus.

7-8U Minors DOB 9/1/13 – 8/31/15 – League Coordinator - Ryan Finnan
After kids are registered, coaches are selected and they may keep up to 4 players from the previous season (including their own children).  

After an evaluation, the teams are built to ensure parity.  Teams may be split into divisions to ensure parity. This is managed by VP Player Development and the league director.  In 2016, 7U division was all coach pitch for 1/2 the season and then moved to 2 innings kid pitch and 4 innings coach. In 2016 our 8U division had 3 innings coach pitch then 3 innings kid pitch.

Games will be played against in house Loveland rec teams during the week and on Saturdays mainly at LMS, Kiwanis Park, and McCoy. Coaches may choose to have 1 coach in the outfield while that team is on defense and our in-house rules require that each kid plays infield and outfield (unless safety concerns exist).  In 2021 we may have one game against the new Terrace Park and/or Mariemont Little League.  

9-10U Minors DOB 9/1/11 – 8/31/13 – League Coordinator Brian Joyner
After kids are registered, coaches are selected and they may keep up to 4 players from the previous season (including their own children).  An evaluation will be held and the remaining players are assigned to teams in a method as determined by the VP Development and league director (historically a draft held in late February at the coach kick off meeting).  The team formation process is managed at the discretion of the VP Development and league director.  

Games may be played against in house Loveland rec teams during the week and on Saturdays with potential to play inter-league games against other Little League organizations in Little League District 9. 

12U Little League Majors DOB  9/1/09 – 8/31/12  – League Coordinator Al Juram
After kids are registered, coaches are selected and they can keep up to 4 players from the previous season (including their own children) with parent approval.  An evaluation will be held and the remaining kids are selected via a draft in late February.  Games will be played against in house Loveland rec teams as well as some out of house teams at LMS and Miami Riverview as well as a potential for some out of house teams in the local area.

13U – DOB  9/1/08 – 8/31/10 – Travel Coordinator Rob Stineman  
14U – DOB  9/1/07 – 8/31/09 – Travel Coordinator Rob Stineman
16U – DOB  9/1/05 – 8/31/08 – Travel Coordinator Rob Stineman

Teams are formed by coaches and players communicating to build team(s) and getting approval from parents. Historically we have extra kids that register and we will work to provide all a chance to play.  Little League allows three years of ages to play with one another, hence the age range.

Games will be played against LYBO teams and other teams within Little League District 9 and potentially other Little League games and tourneys the coach decides upon with the approval of the league director.
Home field is typically:
13U - Stottman Park
14U - 16U - Phillips Park
