Baseball Divisional Guidelines

Tolland Little League Spring Baseball Divisions

The following are the leagues we will offer for registration at this time.  Parents should select the league based on the Player’s Little League age (see below).  If registration numbers fall to a level where an appropriate numbers of teams cannot be formed, we will likely need to condense leagues.  Evaluations will be held for AAA and Majors and for Players trying out to play in a more advanced league than his or her age.  Age, experience level and evaluation/try out requirements are noted in each league below.
