What is Little League Age?

A player’s “Little League Age” is the age the player will be on August 31, 2019. Whenever CVLL refers to a player’s age, it means “Little League Age”. CVLL Divisions are:

LITTLE LEAGE AGE CALCULATOR

Challenger Division - The Challenger Division is a unique program for mentally and/or physically challenged youth aged 5-18 which allows the enjoyment of Little League participation in an athletic environment structured to their abilities. More than the baseball skills learned, the value of the division is found in the proven therapeutic and socialization benefits of participating in sports, the strengthening of the participants' self-esteem, the opportunities to mainstream into other divisions of play, and the disciplines of teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play.

Peanut Division (Ages 4 - 5 some 6 year olds) – Little League rules require that all 4-6 year olds play in the Peanut Division, which does not allow player pitching. The Peanut Division is strictly instructional and non-competitive, providing a fun environment that introduces players to the fundamentals of the game. Players are assigned to teams by the CVLL Player Agent.

Minor International Division (Little League Ages: 6yrs,7yrs and some 8yr olds) –  Most 7 year old players and some 8 year olds will be assigned to this division, along with select 6yr olds proving to possess the ability to play-up. This division, while highly developmental, begins to introduce competitive baseball to each player, using a combination of kid-pitch and machine pitching , thus providing players an introduction to actual pitching, while still allowing for a high volume of offensive and defensive repetitions, in which to grow their individual and collective skill-sets. Players are assigned to teams by the CVLL Player Agent, after completing a simple evaluation to assess each player’s current ability.  Any 6 year olds having at least 1 year of tee ball experience, may petition to play-up to this division, and shall take part in player evaluations, along with all other players in this division. Players registering as Peanut who successfully petition to play up will be required to pay the difference in the Fair Share Donation between the two divisions.

Minor National Division (Ages 8 - 9 some 7 year olds) – This is a developmental division which introduces players to more advanced techniques involving baserunning, fielding and pitching. Players are drafted onto teams after participating in player evaluations. Any 7 year old wishing to be drafted into this division must petition to play up and attend evaluations. This is a player’s first exposure to a competitive division.

Minor American Division (Ages 9 – 10 some 11 year olds) – This division includes players aged 10 to 12 not drafted into the Majors, and enough 9 year olds to fill out the league. This division provides these players an opportunity to expand their skills by incorporating more advanced parts of the game such as base stealing and bunting. Players are drafted onto teams after participating in evaluations. Players aged 12 are not allowed to pitch. Players in this division may be drafted up to the Major Division during the regular season to fill a vacancy.

Major Division (Ages 11 – 12)

Junior Division (Ages 13– 14)

Registration Costs & Fees

REGISTRATION COSTS

CVLL is a non-profit organization that relies on donations made at registration to help pay league expenses.  Donation amounts are set at levels the league believes are adequate and fair to cover expenses of play at each level.  The League also sets levels for budgeting purposes and bases them on anticipated number of players each season and related expenses.  As such, the League must make early financial commitments to assure that uniforms, equipment and other materials and  supplies are purchased and received in a timeframe that allows practices and games to start on schedule. Therefore, the deadline to request a full refund is December 31, 2018, and for a partial refund the deadline is January 20, 2019. Because CVLL is a non-profit organization as allowed by Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, your donation may be tax deductible.

CRPD FEES

What are they and why do I have to pay them?

Conejo Recreation Park District (CRPD) administers and maintains all of the city’s fields and parks for the City of Thousand Oaks. This includes our CVLL baseball fields at Fiore, Waverly, and Dover.

For 48 years, CVLL enjoyed permitted use of the baseball fields free of charge, as CRPD absorbed the costs of maintenance and utilities within their tax payer supported budget. In 2012, CRPD began charging CVLL for permitted use of the baseball fields in order to cover the ever increasing costs in maintenance and utilities. As CVLL operates as a Not-For-Profit entity, we receive a discounted rate from CRPD, and CRPD absorbs the balance. Despite the discounted rate, field use fees have become a significant part of CVLL’s operating costs.

As a reminder, CVLL’s status as a Not-For-Profit organization may allow you to deduct your child’s registration Fair Share Donation as a charitable donation. We appreciate your understanding of this situation and sincerely wish we did not have to pass this cost along to you.

If you have any questions in regards to the Field Use Fees, please contact any CVLL board member, CRPD board member (list found HERE),  or CRPD directly at (805) 495-6471.

Player Evaluations

All players, except for those ages 4 to 7* and those participating in the Challenger Divisions, must attend player evaluations. It is important to review the evaluation schedule closely and identify the location, date and time as to when the evaluation of your particular age group will be occurring. Players who do not attend evaluations will be assigned to a team as space permits by the Player Agent in accordance with CVLL regulations. All managers must attend evaluations to assess the players. Players are asked to demonstrate their ability in fielding, throwing, hitting, and baserunning.

Players should bring their baseball glove, appropriate shoes (no metal cleats allowed except for Juniors and Seniors) and a cap. Bats and balls are provided, but players can bring their own bat if they wish. Evaluations are conducted on a first come, first serve basis.

PLAYER REQUESTS

CVLL will try to honor player requests for team placement (i.e., carpools, etc.) in the Peanut and Minor International Divisions (Ages 4-7). Player requests cannot be honored in all other divisions since they involve a player draft.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER PLAYER EVALUATIONS?

After player evaluations, team managers meet and draft players onto their teams. All players who register on time, attend player evaluations, and have a certified copy of their birth certificate reviewed by CVLL will be assigned to a team. If there are circumstances which warrant a review of a player’s team assignment, the matter should first be discussed with the team manager or the Division Vice President who will, if necessary, review the situation with the Player Agent. A player’s team assignment cannot be changed purely for the convenience of the player or the parents.

During the season, players may be drafted up from the Minor American to the Major Division, if an opening occurs. Only those players who are age appropriate for that division and meet CVLL eligibility requirements can be considered for drafting up. Players are assigned to Challenger, Peanut, and Minor International teams by the CVLL Player Agent. For all divisions, the manager will contact each player after the draft/team assignment process is complete to schedule a parent meeting.
