From the President

Dear Little League Parents,

As the snow and ice start to melt, I hope this new season finds you well and as excited about our 2015 Little League Softball and Baseball season as I am. We’ll be playing before you know it.

I remember when my kids first got involved in Little League; I didn’t know the difference between Minor or Junior divisions, so I’m writing to help new parents understand.

For both Baseball and Softball, Charlevoix has the following divisions open to players:

· Midgets – Players ages 7-8 (Coach Pitch Division)

· Minors – Players ages 9-10 (Kid Pitch Division)

· Majors – Players ages 11-12 (The Division you can see play on ESPN each Fall in Williamsport)

· Juniors – Players ages 13-14 (played on larger 80’ diamond)

This season, Little League International modified the Age Determination Chart for baseball. For a full explanation, please refer to http://www.littleleague.org/learn/rules/rulechanges/age-determination-talking-points.htm. May 1st was the old cutoff date for determining league age. Now, it is December 1, essentially making all of the divisions slightly younger. The hard date for implementation is 2018, but LL is asking we make the transition this year. League Age 9 is the first group affected (League Age 10 and older are unaffected). This means we’ll have a slightly larger group of ‘9 year olds’ in the Minor Division this year. Please refer to the LL age chart to determine your player’s League Age:

Softball Age Determination remains unchanged and can be found here: http://www.littleleague.org/Assets/forms_pubs/2015/Age-Chart-Softball.pdf

As always, the Board accommodates players that would like to ‘play up’ or ‘play down’ based on skill levels, always keeping safety in mind. However, tournament teams can only be filled with age appropriate players. Contact me if your player should be considered for a league other than specified above. Look for registration events soon on our Facebook page or www.charlevoixlittleleague.com.

Thanks and always feel free to reach out to me with any questions.
