2016 Spring Registration
2016 Spring registration is now open
 

Woodstock Little League registration for the 2016 Spring season is now open.  Please read the information below for more information and registration details.  Registrations can be submitted online at http://www.woodstockctlittleleague.org/.

Please register your player(s) in the appropriate division according to their date of birth.  This will not necessarily be the division that your player(s) participates in during the 2016 Spring Playing Season.  Final player placement will be determined by the WLL Board of Directors based upon the following: (1) WLL Safety Evaluations, (2) Little League Softball and Baseball Age Determination Charts, (3) WLL bylaws for Player Tryouts and Evaluation Scores (Rule 7) and (4) WLL bylaws for Age Guidelines and Division/Team Roster Selection (Rule 8).  WLL bylaws can be found under the "WLL Documents" tab on this website.  Any questions can be directed to Mike Sampson at woodstockllpresident@yahoo.com.

 

Registration through March 11, 2016 will be $75 per player plus participation in the league fundraiser. 
Registrations received 
March 12, 2016 or later will include a $25 late fee.

 

Evaluations/tryouts will be Sunday, March 20, 2016 @ Casuabon Senior Center (Southbridge Community Center), 153 Chestnut Street, Southbridge, MA (see times below).  Please arrive 15 minutes early to register, players should wear sneakers not cleats.  Players looking to play in a new division for the 2016 spring season should attend this evaluation/tryout.  In most cases, players will not be allowed to move up a division unless they have attended at least one evaluation/tryout.  If your player attended the evaluation/tryout held last November, they are not required to attend on March 20th, although WLL encourages attending both.  Any questions should be directed to Mike Sampson at woodstockllpresident@yahoo.com.

 

Sunday 3/20/2016 Evaluation/Tryout Schedule:

 

10 am - 11 am Minor Softball Evaluations: 7, 8 & 9* yr old girls
11 am - 12 pm Major Softball Evaluations: 9*, 10, 11 & 12 yr old girls
12 pm - 1:30 pm Minor Baseball Evaluations: 7, 8 & 9* yr old boys
1:30 pm - 3 pm Major Baseball Evaluations: 9*, 10, 11 & 12 yr old boys

who needs to attend evaluations?
  • any 7 year olds who want to be considered for Minors
  • any 8 year olds who want to be considered for Minors
  • any 9 year olds new to WLL, new to Minors or who want to be considered for Majors
  • any 10 year olds new to WLL or who want to be considered for Majors
  • any 11 year olds new to WLL or new to Majors
  • any 12 year olds new to WLL or new to Majors

*9 year olds should attend the evaluation for the division they wish to be considered for.  In order for 9 year olds to be considered for the Majors division, they must have played in the Minors division for at least one season.

All references to age/league age is intended to mean the player's Little League age for the 2016 season.  To calculate your player's Little League age, please see the 2016 Baseball and/or Softball Little League Age Charts found on our website or visit the Little League website and utilize the Little League Age Calculator (http://www.littleleague.org/leagueofficers/determine_league_age/league_age_calculator.htm).

Any returning player that will be playing in the same division as the 2015 Spring season is not required to attend tryouts.  The division the player participated in during the 2015 Fall season is irrelevant for 2016 Spring season placement purposes.

  • You have the option of selling five tickets ($5 per ticket) for the drawing or buying out of the fundraiser for an additional $25.00.  Buying out will give you five entries in the Spring Drawing. This buyout fee is PER PLAYER, NOT per FAMILY.

Opening day is tentatively scheduled for Saturday April 16, 2016.

Thanks

Update to Little League Baseball Age Determination Date

Update to the Implementation of Little League Baseball Age Determination Date

Little League Baseball to Begin Utilization of August 31 Age Determination Date for the 2018 Season; Children Born Between May 1 and August 31, 2005 to be Grandfathered as 12-Year-Olds For 2018 Season

 

Over the past couple of years, there has been a lot of discussion about the Little League Baseball Age Determination Date. This is an important topic to everyone involved in Little League, and Little League has sought input from volunteers, parents, and coaches that has helped guide District Administrators and the Little League International Board of Directors to ultimately change the Age Determination Date for all divisions of Little League Baseball and the Little League Challenger Division to August 31.

Update:
At the fall 2015 meeting of the Little League International Board of Directors, it was approved to grandfather the four months of children born between May 1 and August 31, 2005, for the 2018 season, so that no child will lose their 12-year-old season of Little League Baseball.

Why the change? In 2011, Little League conducted very detailed participation research. As a result of that research, we learned that parents, players, and volunteers wanted to see Little League become, as a whole, a younger program, and give children an easier way to play Little League with their classmates. Since the research concluded, Little League revamped its Tee Ball program, established a Coach Pitch Program, and changed its residency requirements to allow children to play in the league where their school is located. Adjusting the Age Determination Date will help us achieve the goal of making Little League younger. And, making the date August 31, the same that many schools in many states use for student registration, allows Little Leaguers to play with their classmates.

This change will make the Little League Baseball Division, also known as the Major Division, truly a 12 and under program – ensuring that no child playing in the Little League/Major Division will turn 13 years old at any point during their final season in that division. The same will be true with the upper age limit at all teenage divisions of Little League Baseball.

What’s the difference? In 2014, Little League District Administrators initially voted to move the age determination date from April 30 to December 31, effective with the 2018 season. That was amended by District Administrators and the Little League International Board of Directors in August 2015, moving the date from December 31 to August 31. Effective November 2015, the implementation plan has been amended, grandfathering the four-months of children born between May 1 and August 31, 2005 as 12-year-olds for the 2018 season.

For players born on or before April 30, 2005: The new age determination date of August 31 will be effective starting with the 2018 Little League Baseball Season. For the 2016 and 2017 seasons, these players will use the April 30 age determination date.

For players born between May 1, 2005 and August 31, 2005: The new age determination date of August 31 will be effective starting with the 2019 Little League Baseball Season. For the 2016, 2017, 2018 season, these players will use the April 30 age determination date.

For players born on or after September 1, 2005: The August 31 age determination date will be effective immediately, starting with the 2016 season. This was the implementation used for the 2015 season, with players turning 4 to 9 years old during the 2015 calendar year to use the December 31 age determination date. That implementation remains in place, except instead of using December 31, you will use August 31.

“Having a meaningful Little League experience is an important milestone for millions of children around the world,” said Stephen D. Keener, Little League President and CEO. “As we continue to work with our volunteers and the International Board of Directors, we believe this solution allows us to accomplish our goal of making the Little League Baseball Division truly a 12 and under program, while ensuring that all children get the opportunity to fully enjoy their 12-year-old year in Little League.”
