South Portland Little League Baseball Spring 2024

Thank you for your interest in South Portland Little League Baseball and Softball!

Tee ball is required for new players in the Little League age 4-5 bracket. (Note: There is a difference between calendar age and Little League age. Many 3 year old's fall into Little League age 4 bracket. See 2024 Little League Ages for details (https://www.littleleague.org/downloads/2024-baseball-age-chart// ). First year Little League age 5 year old players are REQUIRED to play at least one season of tee-ball before progressing to Coach Pitch division. Players will be introduced to the basic concepts of baseball in a fun and safe environment. Coaches will seek to make this a highly engaging experience through the use of small skills stations in addition to traditional game experiences.

Coach Pitch baseball is intended for kids ages 6-7 who have been introduced to the basic skills through tee-ball and have progressed/. All Little League age 5 year old players MUST have played a season of tee-ball prior to registering for Coach Pitch baseball. (Note: Little League age may be different than your players actual age). Players will learn fielding positions, throwing and catching skills, as well as hitting fundamentals. Coach Pitch baseball will play with a traditional 9 player defensive lineup, with coaches pitching to batters. Coaches will continue to focus on core skills development and teamwork.  

AAA baseball is intended for players who have mastered the basic competencies of throwing, fielding and catching in baseball. Players will range in age from 8-12 depending on experience, skills and abilities. There may be circumstances where players move from Coach Pitch to AAA or vice versa based on assessment of skills and abilities, as well as safety considerations. AAA baseball will field a traditional 9 player defense, and introduces player pitching. In most cases, players must have completed at least one season of AA baseball to be eligible for AAA baseball registration. 

Majors baseball is a competitive league for players who have mastered the core skills and abilities of little league baseball. A tryout assessment will be held prior to the beginning of the season (details to follow). Players who were drafted onto a SPLL majors team last season are not required to tryout. However, ALL other players must plan to attend the tryout assessment if they wish to be considered. Players who are not placed on a majors team will be placed on a AAA team for the season. Most players at the majors level are 10-12 years of age, although there may be occasions where a 9 year old would be considered based on skills and abilities. 

Juniors baseball is the next level up from Majors and is available for 13 and 14 year old's.

First time registrations will be required to provide the league with: (1) Player's birth certificate; (2) Parent or legal guardian must be present; and (3) proof of residency of legal guardian. SPLL will not retain these documents.
