What division do I sign my player up for?

Generally Little League divides players into 5 different divisions based on the player's age. Age is calculated based on the player's age as of August 31st, 2023. See the official Little League age calculator to find out your child's division.

General Age Brackets
T-Ball: 4-6 years old
Rookies: 7-8 years old
Minors: 9-10 years old
Majors: 11-12 years old
Intermediate: 12-13 years old
                                                                      Age Matrix

Experienced players may register to "play up" in a higher age division. However, placement is not guaranteed. If you think your player should be playing in a different division than they are placed in age wise please have a discussion with the Player Agent, the Coach and League President. Coaches have the final say on players' division placement.

What gear do we need to buy?

We suggest getting your player a glove, white pants and cleats. Other items are optional if you want your own helmet or bat. Teams have team bats, helmets, catchers gear, tees and balls.
Swap Meet
As a league, each spring we host a swap meet at "Skills Day" where you can donate the gear your player has out grown and pick up some gear in their current size. We have a number of gloves in all sizes and cleats (mostly small sizes). 
Dick's Sporting Goods Discount Weekend
Dick's is our perennial sponsor and they provide our families with a coupon for 20% off purchases during a certain weekend of the year right before spring ball. Typically this weekend falls on the same weekend as our "Skills Day." Please take advantage of this discount weekend when preparing for Spring ball.
2023 Dick's Discount weekend is February 17-20 (Friday through Monday).

Skills Day? What is that?

Come out to the ball park and have your player display their skills to prospective coaches. This is a crucial step in dividing players evenly amongst their age group's teams. Determining fair teams is important to us and helps to maintain the competitiveness and fun of the league.
Coaches will draft players following skills day, contact parents or guardians, and practices will start shortly after.

When are Practices?

In the Spring practice starts right after skills day. Skills Day helps us divide the players into teams and once that is done, we can start practicing and scheduling games

Practices are scheduled by the coach, with assistance from the board of directors and Carteret County for booking fields. Hopefully your coach has taken into account each players schedule, but be mindful that the coach is a volunteer and has a schedule of their own so they may only be able to hold practices on certain days. 

You can expect 1-2 weeknight games a week during the season. The game schedule comes out mid March. The board (usually President) creates the game schedule with input from the other leagues we play around the local area (Down East, Morehead, Newport, Havelock). He starts scheduling games once registration is complete and we know how many players and teams we'll have. Please be patient while this process is happening.
