NEW 2016 Little League Age Chart

Posted by Northwest Downey Little League on Feb 01 2015 at 09:20PM PST in September 2014 Season

The Little League Age Chart has been updated for the 2016 season.

In short, the Age Determination Date has been moved up from December 31 to August 31.

For players born on or before August 31, 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 on or after September 1, 2005: The new 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.
