Any 10 or 11 year old not drafted to Majors will be placed on a AAA team.  All 12 years old will be drafted to a Majors team.

Please note that in order to have competitively balanced teams, attending the tryouts is extremely important as Majors teams are drafted by their respective coaches.  If your child does not attend tryouts, they most likely (unless play age 12) will be be placed in AAA.
