League Age Determination

Your player’s league age is determined by the Little League Baseball® Age Charts. League Age 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 as of August 31 of the current year.

See the Little League Age Chart below or use the Official Little League Age Calculator to quickly determine League Age and Division.

Baseball Divisions By Age

  • Players who are league age 4-7 are eligible to be selected to a Tee Ball team.
  • Players who are league age 5-6 that have participated for one regular season in the Tee Ball Division are eligible to be selected to a Minor League Division (coach pitch or machine pitch) team.
  • Players who are league age 7-12 are eligible to be selected to a Minor League Division team (player pitch, coach pitch, or machine pitch) for the regular season. The local league board of directors may decide the age-cutoffs within this age grouping.
  • Players who are league age 9-12 are eligible to be selected to a Little League (“Major”) Division team for the regular season. The local league board of directors may restrict this division to players who are league age 10-12 or 11-12.
  • Players who are league age 11-13 are eligible to be selected to an Intermediate (50/70) Division team for the regular season. The local league board of directors may decide to have a different age-cutoff for this division, provided it is within the grouping noted. For example, the Intermediate Division in a local Little League could be limited to players who are league age 12-13.
