Memo from President: RE: Age Determination Adjustment
Age Determination Adjustment
All local Little League programs have now received guidance from Little League International (LLI) regarding the adjustment to the implementation plan for the 2018 League Age Determination regulation for Baseball Divisions only. There will be a multi-year transition from 2015-2018.
Therefore Trumbull Little League’s (“TLL”) upcoming registration program for 2015 will be updated to reflect LLI’s guidance. Listed below is a high level summary of how league age will be calculated this upcoming baseball season:
League Age 5-8 year olds will be determined using the age as of December 31, 2015
League Age 9 year olds will be determined using a hybrid of both the age as of April 30, 2015 and December 31, 2015; this expands the 9 year old eligibility pool for players with birth dates between May 2005 and December 2006 (20 months)*.
League Age 10 year olds (Born between May 1, 2004 to April 30, 2005) and older will be determined using age as of April 30, 2015
*The 20 month period will move with the 9 year old pool until they reach the Major Division as 12 year olds in 2018.
In 2018, all ages will move to the same age determination date of December 31, 2018.
TLL will communicate any further updates as we receive them from LLI. Any questions regarding what level your child will play in the 2015 season can be sent to our league e-mail address at
or stop by one of our in-person registration sessions in January.
