Why is my child not playing in the age group they are now?
Within Little League Baseball and Little League Challenger Division, Little League also adjusted the League Age Determination Date helped to achieve the goal of making Little League younger. The league age of a Little Leaguer for these divisions is based on the player’s age as of August 31 of the current year. This date is the same that many schools in many states use for student registration, which allows Little Leaguers to play with their classmates.

Evaluations for ages 5-13 are Mandatory. 
The purpose of evaluations is to ensure a competitive balance in every age group.  This is why we require all players to attend.

Evaluations for ages 5-13 are 2/16 @ The Hangar.  The Hangar is at 1199 Shadow Lane (Cornelia Fort).  These are not tryouts as everyone will be assigned a team.   
Ages 5-6 – 2-3pm
Ages 7-8 – 3-4pm
Ages 9-10 – 4-5:15pm
Ages 11-13 -5-6:30pm

What equipment does my child need?
Glove
Cleats (No metal spikes, molded only)
Helmet- recommended!
Bat- not required to purchase but not provided.  Players often share bats and these can range from $40-400
Batting gloves- can be very nice to have to prevent blisters
Baseball pants for practice- recommended so the players isn't having to wear their game pants.

Are uniforms provided?
Yes.  Game uniforms are provided to players and this cost is included in registration.  Game uniforms include- hat, shirt, pants, and socks. Practice uniforms are not provided so it is a good idea to get your player some baseball pants and socks for practice.  

When are practices and games?
Coaches will be finalized by 2/26.  At that time we will determine practice schedules.  Players will be assigned to teams on 3/2.  So we will not know what days your child will practice until 3/2.  Game schedules will depend on how many teams we have in each age group and the game schedule will be finalized by early March.  Generally the 5-6 age group and older play 1 week night game and 1 weekend game.  We cannot give definitive days and times for practice or games until teams and coaches are set.
