Players should register for the following divisions based on league age:
League Age 6 and under - T-Ball
League Age 7- 8 - Coach Pitch
League Age 9 -10 - Minor
League Age 11-12 - Major
League Age 13-14 - Junior
We recognize that some players occasionally have advanced skills and would like to play in a more competitive division (e.g. play up). This is still possible, but not a guarantee. While players in T-Ball and Coach Pitch divisions are simply assigned evenly to teams, our Minor and Major divisions are competitive. Players participate in a skills assessment and are drafted to their teams. We follow Little League guidelines for drafts which allows each coach to take turns choosing one available player in each round of the draft.
All players league age 8 and above can attend our skills assessment to be considered for the draft. A player who is league age 8 will be eligible for the Minor Division draft but if they are not drafted, then they will be assigned to a coach pitch team. Similarly, a 10-year-old could be considered for the Major draft if he had a strong score in the skills assessment.
Please do not hesitate to contact our BYS Registrar if you have any questions about registration for the different divisions. If you have any questions about your child’s “league age”, please use this age chart to determine their correct age. It does depend on their birthday and may be different from their actual age today.
