Important Update: Little League International Age Determination Change for 2016

We have an important update from Little League International regarding the age determination dates for 2016. Little League heard from many families after last year's changes, and is making a slight adjustment to better align league age with the grades children are in at school so that they are playing with their classmates.
 
NEW UPDATE -- Little League announces 12 year olds will be grandfathered in for 2018 season.
 
Please read the message from Little League International and review the age chart at the following link.
