2019 Little League Softball Age Determination Chart

Please note that Baseball and Softball have different age determination charts.  Baseball runs from September 1-August 31 and Softball is from January 1-December 31.  So a girl born on June 30, 2007 will be a baseball league age 12 while she would be a softball league age 11.

 

Coach Pitch Division (League Age 7-8; 6 year olds ok if played t-ball, 9 year olds ok if new to the sport)

In the Coach Pitch division, coaches will pitch to players who will have a limited number of swings to reach base.  Outs are recorded and batters are limited to one at-bat per inning. 

Games are up to 2 hours in length, though most tend to be in the 1-1.5 hour range.  There is one weekday practice and one weekend practice (both 1.5 hours in length), and once games begin there is generally a weekday practice, a weekday game, and a weekend game.  

Makeup games are scheduled as soon as possible after a rainout.  There is a minimum of 12 regular season games scheduled.  It is likely that the season will begin with a clinic run by either coaches or NBS Core Training Academy staff.
