Divisions By Age

The Little League Baseball® program includes divisions for all children, ages 4–16. Baseball divisions consist of the following programs:

Tee Ball

Often, a family’s first introduction to Little League® is in the Tee Ball program. Tee Ball is the entry level division for players, ages 4-7. The experience is grounded in fun, fitness, and fundamentals while also being a key to growing a child’s love for the game.

The Little League Tee Ball program provides volunteer coaches with everything they need to create an environment where players will learn the skills of the game, while having fun and staying active. Parents and legal guardians of Tee Ball players are crucial to the extension of the program, and their satisfaction is equally important to its success. The outreach and inclusion of this division sets the foundation for continued participation in the local Little League program.

Each Little Leaguer is required to play one season of Tee Ball before being eligible to be evaluated by the local league officials for consideration to advance to a higher division of Little League baseball or softball.

The use of a robust 10-week Tee Ball program benefits the players and volunteer coaches, who typically are younger parents with little experience as coaches/managers. Coaches may elect to use their own program.

Tee Ball players use bats and balls designated specifically for use in this division. The roster size for a Tee Ball team averages 9-12 players, with a season featuring a combination of 3 practices or games per week. (One game during the week and one game on Saturday and one other day to practice). Weekday practices or games begin at 5:30 pm. Game times on Saturday will vary during daylight hours. Games and practices are usually 1.5 to 2 hours in length.

Parents are strongly encouraged to become involved in this entry level of Little League. After completing a Little League volunteer application and passing a required national background check, parents may become involved in practices, and be eligible as coaches, managers, umpires, local league board members and other volunteer positions within the league.
