Frequently Asked Questions

TRYOUTS

Where can I find out more information about tryouts? Tryout information is found in the "Tryout Information" section of the Web site. It's also usually posted on the main page in the weeks prior to tryouts.

Does my child need to attend tryouts? Tryouts are for Farm, Minors and Majors divisions only (and sometimes Juniors, Seniors, Big League). Tryouts for Farm, Minors and Majors baseball and softball generally occur in early February.

What age groups must attend tryouts? Baseball and softball players 9-12 must attend at least two Majors/Minors/Farm tryouts. Baseball players age 8 wishing to play Farm and softball players age 8 wishing to play Minors must also attend tryouts, and will be placed either in Farm/Minors SB or Rookies, depending upon space and ability/maturity.

Do some players get "cut" (meaning they don't get to play because of tryout performance)? Tryouts are simply a method used by Little League to balance talent and place players in their appropriate divisions. All players ages 4-12 are able to play Little League provided they register in time. Every effort is made to accomodate all players 13-18 as well.
