Little League International Change to Age Date Determination
Notice to FNLL families,
On Nov. 14 the Little League® Board of Directors approved a new transition plan for players born after April 30, 2005. Starting with the 2015 Spring season Little League International will begin a phased roll out of the new age determination date. For players born in 2005 or after the new league determination date will be December 31. Players born before May 1, 2005 will not be impacted by this change.
Why did Little League Change the Age Determination date?
After receiving requests from local leagues and districts to provide a better transition for younger players, Little League worked with its volunteers, the Little League Advisory Board, and the Little League International Board of Directors Operations Committee to create this plan.
As a result, the new age determination date has allowed our program to become younger and let players, parents, and leagues use the various age levels of the Little League Baseball divisions to ensure all Little Leaguers are playing in the division that suits his/her skill level the best. It also ensures that players who were league age 7 for the 2014 season and are now league age 9 for the 2015 season, and have the ability, to transition to the next division.

What You Need to Know
As a result of this recent adjustment to the implementation strategy, effective immediately, any player born on or after January 1, 2006 who will turn the ages of 4-9 during the 2015 calendar year will be eligible to participate in a local Little League program and will use the new age determination date of December 31 for the reminder of their Little League career. Players will still be assigned to a division based on local league divisional structure. Read More on littleleague.org
