Little League divisions are broadly structured by player age as shown below. South County Little League strives to maintain competitive divisions and, through a draft, balances skill levels across teams within each division. Our objective is to place players at the level where they can enjoy the game, develop their skills, and be competitive. We understand the importance of playing with friends and will consider parent requests for division placement, but sometimes those requests may jeopardize player safety - which remains a priority. We believe players playing in a division appropriate to their skill level will enhance the playing experiences for everyone. For those reasons, we may occasionally place players in a division one level above or below what they requested to play.
To review descriptions of each Division, click on the "Division Descriptions" on the left menu. Ages shown in below are "baseball age", which will be the players’ age as of April 30, 2014. These ages should be used as a guide for first time players. If you see ages listed more than once, you should only consider moving up a division if your player has experience in the lower level.
