League Age

Little League baseball uses what is called "league age" to determine player's age and recommended division. The player's school grade or other factors are not considered when registering players in the recommended division. League Age can also be verified on the Little League Age Calculator: http://www.littleleague.org/leagueofficers/determine_league_age/league_age_calculator.htm

Upper Divisions

All upper division teams are created using a player draft in late January / early February. All players must attend a skills assessment the last Saturday in January to allow managers the opportunity to evaluate players' skills before they draft their teams.

Double-A is the first level after Farm League and is for players league age 8. Double-A focuses on skill development and teamwork. Players learn the game basics such as the difference between force outs and tag outs. Players are given opportunities to play a wide variety of positions in both the infield and outfield. Players also begin playing the pitcher and catcher positions for the first time.

Skills Assessment

Players in the upper divisions (Double-A, Triple-A, Coast, Majors, Intermediate and Juniors) are required to attend a Skills Assessment before the start of each season to provide managers an opportunity to evaluate players' strengths and weaknesses before the player draft. The assessment helps SVLL create balanced teams to create a fun and competitive season for all players. For more information, click here.

Regular Season

The regular season starts the first week in March for the upper divisions (Double-A, Triple-A, Coast, Majors, Intermediate and Juniors) and includes three weeks of practices before games start. The Farm League divisions (Tee Ball, Sluggers and Single-A) start in mid-April and all divisions wrap up play by mid-June.

There are no games played during Spring Break or Memorial Day weekend.

Jamboree Day

Join us for Jamboree Day on April 28th at Torguson Field #6. This event gets the entire league together- all baseball and softball teams- for a SVLL parade and pep rally.

Teams are asked to assemble at 10:30 a.m. to get in group order before the parade of teams begins at 11 a.m. Families are encouraged to stay after the parade and take part in a fun afternoon, complete with food vendors, equipment vendors, bouncy houses, and more! Upper division games begin in the afternoon.

Team and individual pictures will also be taken throughout the day at North Bend Elementary School (stay tuned for your team's assigned time). Teams can access the photo session area from NBE's campus (walk to the right to the covered playground area) or by passing through the fence in right field of Torguson field #4. NBE is a great overflow parking area too if Torguson is full.

All-Stars

All-Stars is a competitive post-season team. Team member selections are based on player and manager input and rosters are formed based on the approved All-Star selection process. The All-Star season begins mid-June and follows Little League Tournament play rules and schedules
