Effective immediately, any player born on or after January 1, 2006 who will turn the ages of 4-9 during the 2015 calendar year will be eligible to participate in a local Little League program and will use the new age determination date of December 31 for the reminder of their Little League Baseball career. Players will still be assigned to a division based on local league divisional structure –see chart below for details:

Transition Options for Spring 2015

To ease the transition for players with birthdates most immediately impacted by the new rules, Northwest Little League will offer the following options for the spring 2015 season only:

  • Players born between May 1-Dec 31, 2006 can play in the default AAA division OR request to play down to AA
  • Players born between May 1-Dec 31, 2008 can play in the default AA division OR request to play down to Tball

Players who opt to move down must register to the default division in NWLL’s registration system (i.e., AAA for 2006 birthdates and AA for 2008 birthdates) AND clearly request to play down in the “Comments” section of the registration form.  The League will assume players who don’t indicate preference to play down on the registration form should remain in their default division.

These exceptions are designed to ease the immediate transition to the new policy this spring.  All NWLL players–including those who choose to play down this spring–will be required to join their age-appropriate division for future seasons, including fall 2015.

If you’ve already completed registration for a child in the age bands listed above and wish to change divisions, please contact registrar@nwlldc.org.  Players born outside the affected age bands are not permitted to play down unless medical circumstances warrant.

As always, players who seek to play up must contact the division commissioner who may grant an exception with strong recommendation of the player’s prior season’s coach. Players attempting to play up to AAA or Majors may be asked to remain in their age-appropriate division based on tryout evaluations.
