10 - 12 year olds (DOB September 1, 2008 - August 31, 2011)
Majors A is LMB's top division. Most of the players in this division are baseball aged 11 or 12, however a few baseball age 10-year olds may be drafted on teams if their assessment scores are high enough. Players in this division have usually played at least two years of player-pitched baseball. New players are encouraged to play at the Majors B level even if they are a baseball ages 12.
All players registered in this division are required to attend pre-season assessments. We cannot guarantee that non-attendees will be placed in the division they are registered for.
**For players who wish to play in MINORS, MAJORS B OR MAJORS A assessments are currently scheduled to be held outdoors on the weekends of January23rd/24th and January 30th/31st. We will provide further details when finalized.
Players baseball aged 10 or 11 who registered for Majors A but are not drafted onto a Majors A team will be drafted onto a team in the Majors B division. This is done with the intention to place each child in a situation where they can have fun and develop their skills.
For children who are baseball aged 12, Little League mandates that they play on a Majors A team unless the parent signs a waiver stating their desire to play at a lower level (Majors B). Following the assessments, players who the coaching staff feel will struggle to compete at the Majors A level may be contacted by the Player Agent to discuss whether the player would consider moving to Majors B.
Teams will have 1½-hour fielding practice and one 1-hour batting practice each week. These practices are usually on different weekday evenings. There may be additional practice times scheduled at the discretion of the coach.
Usually two games per week. Games typically last 2 to 2½ hours and players are usually expected to arrive 1 hour before the game for warmup activities. Games will be against other Little Mountain teams and may have interlocking games against teams from other Little Leagues.
Between games and practices, players can expect to play ball approximately four times a week.
Scores are kept, standings maintained and there is a double-elimination playoff at the end of the season to determine a Division champion.
All Majors A teams will usually play in one tournament, and some will play in two tournaments during the season.
Team rosters will normally consist of 12 players. Teams are selected by a draft process. Friend requests are not accepted at this level for this reason. Siblings living at the same address who assess to play in the same division are permitted to play on the same team by sending a written request to the Registrar.
Parents will be placed on a rotational schedule to help with duties such as field prep (practices and games), score-keeping, pitch-counting, score-board, announcing and concession duty.
