We’re excited to announce several changes to our Little League divisional placement guidelines and rules. Each year, our goal is to provide the best balance of learning, fun and competitiveness at the recreation level, and we sincerely believe that the following enhancements to our Little League Recreational program will accomplish that goal:
- We have added a AAA Division (just below the Major Division). We believe that this will improve the competitiveness across all of our levels of play.
- We have more clearly defined which ages can be playing in an individual division as well as the process for players interested in playing outside of the recommended level.
- We have reviewed the rules for each division and made slight changes to improve the quality and safety of play. The primary focus was on kid pitching and the stealing guidelines at the lower levels.
- We have simplified the registration process such that you will NOT need to sign up your player for a specific division. You only need to select your child’s age and he/she will be placed in the proper division based on our placement guidelines.
Ultimately, we believe these new guidelines will accomplish our goal of developing kids at all levels while creating the proper balance of both fun and competition. We look forward to the 2014 season and can’t wait to see how these changes improve EGCYBL both next year and into the future. If you have any questions regarding these changes, please don’t hesitate to reach out to any of our EGCYBL Board members.
More info will be coming soon!
Our league’s goals include fun for 5-12 year old children, building teamwork, sportsmanship, and the development of kids’ social, mental and physical skills.
