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.
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.
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.
Northwest Downey Little League’s Divisional Structure is as follows:
– League Age 4 to 6 years old
– League Age 6* to 7 years old (players age 6 who have not played before must play 1 year of Tee Ball)
– League Age 7 to 9 years old
– League Age 9 to 11 years old
– League Age 10 to 12 years old
– League Age 13 to 14 years old
– League Age 15 to 16 years old
– League Age 17 to 18 years old
