League age determination

Your player’s league age is determined by the Little League Baseball® and Little League Softball® Age Charts. The dates for baseball and softball are different, but each determines the division in which your Little Leaguer will play this season. The Age Determination Date for a Little League Baseball player is the actual age of a child on August 31 of the current year.

CHALLENGER

The Challenger Division was established in 1989 as a separate division of Little League to enable boys and girls with physical and mental challenges, ages 5 - 18, or up to age 22 if still enrolled in high school, to enjoy the game of baseball along with the millions of other children who participate in this sport worldwide. Teams are set up according to abilities, rather than age, and can include as many as 15 - 20 players. Challenger games can be played as Tee Ball games, coach pitch, player pitch, or a combination of the three. Only players with physical and mental challenges may be enrolled in this program.

TEE BALL

Tee Ball is intended for all League Age 5 year olds and most League Age 6 year olds. Those League Age 6 year olds who are more skilled and have played at least one full Spring season of Little League Tee Ball in the past may register for our FARM division. In Tee Ball, a soft “RIF” (Reduced Injury Factor) ball is used. Pitching is not permitted (the ball is batted from a tee.) Teams will generally meet twice per week for practices and games. Tee Ball players do NOT attend an assessment.

FARM

FARM division is typically for league age 7 year olds. Special circumstances may exist to have a 6-year-old play in FARM provided they have played at least one full Spring season of Little League Tee Ball in the past. The Farm division provides players with an introduction to the fundamentals of baseball. FARM uses a pitching machine in order to provide a more consistent and fun experience for the players, as well as help the players to develop better batting skills and habits. If a player is unable to put the ball in play after 5 pitches they will get to put the ball in play from a batting tee. Teams will generally meet twice per week for practices and games. Farm players do NOT attend an assessment.

MAPS

Machine Pitch (MAPS) division is primarily for Little League age 8 year olds with some League age 7 year olds. League age 7 year olds must have played at least one year in the FARM division before they can move into the MAPS division.

MAPS players will experience more traditional baseball playing conditions including risk/reward base running and getting 3 outs or scoring 5 runs to end each half of an inning. A pitching machine will be utilized at this level set at 40 mph. Players will receive 5 hittable pitches before they strike out. There are no tees or walks in this division. A regulation hard Little League baseball will be used. A coach from each team will be responsible for running the pitching machine and umpiring the game. Teams will generally meet twice per week for practices and games. There are NO assessments required in the MAPS division.

MINOR B

Players in this division will face player pitching off the mound, called balls/strikes, game scoring and standings, and further development of baseball fundamentals. An end of year playoff tournament will be held. All players must attend assessments to be eligible for the Minor B Draft. Players will be drafted to the appropriate division based on assessments. Little League age 8 year olds who attend assessments for Minor B but are not drafted will be placed in the MAPS draft.

MINOR A

Minor A is open to Little League age 9-11 year olds who attend assessments. Minor A players will face a faster pace of play than Minor B and the complexity of baseball fundamentals are expanded. An end of year playoff tournament will be held. RPLL submits tournament teams (TOC & All Stars) from this division and the All Star teams are eligible for the Western Region Little League tournament. All players must attend a skills Assessment to be eligible for the Minor A Draft.
