Baseball Divisional Guidelines

Tolland Little League Spring Baseball Divisions

The following are the divisions 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 division than his or her age.  Age, experience level and evaluation/try out requirements are noted in each division below. 

Baseball Little League Age Determination for the upcoming season is based on a September 1st cut off date.  The Little League Age Calculator can be found HERE.
