What Division is Right for My Child?

WHICH DIVISION IS RIGHT FOR MY CHILD?

Children from 4 to 14 years old can be Little Leaguers®. With several age-specific divisions, there are fun, competitive baseball and softball opportunities for both boys and girls who join East Lyme Little League. 

But, before players can put on their Little League uniform, they need to determine their league age. To learn a player’s league age, Little League uses an Age Determination Date, with both Little League Baseball® and Little League Softball® having distinct, different dates.

To find a child’s League Age for the upcoming season, use the League-Age Calculator.

Little League’s Baseball and Softball divisions do have slight differences regarding the age classification of players. Based on the number of players registering to play in a given season, each local league has the option to adjust the age groupings of the players in their league, in accordance with Little League rules and regulations. This allows all participants, from Tee Ball and Coach Pitch to Juniors, to have a fun, meaningful experience.

We strongly recommend that you register your child for the appropriate division based on the player's current skill level. 

Please see below for further descriptions of our different divisions. 

▪ If you have any questions about the appropriate Baseball division for your athlete or questions regarding the league please contact our VP of Baseball, Dan Mason, at [email protected]

▪ If you have any questions about the appropriate Softball division for your athlete or questions regarding the league please contact our VP of Softball. Meredith Swanson, at [email protected]
