Boys Little League: Boys Little League will be comprised of two divisions - AAA and Majors - consisting of boys ages 10 to 12. Boys selected into Majors will be drafted based on coach evaluated tryouts. Those not drafted (except for 12 yr olds) will be automatically placed onto a AAA team.
Boys who are league age 11 or 12 and did not play in Majors previously must attend tryouts. Boys who are play age 10, are welcome, but not required to attend tryouts (most 10 year olds play in AAA). Tryouts will be in early/mid-March and will be announced soon by email, on the CBSL website and on Facebook.
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.
Target Schedule (subject to change based on enrollment numbers)
Boy's AAA will play one weeknight game (Tuesday or Wed or Thurs) and on Saturday mornings (with some minor exceptions). Rain outs, if necessary, will likely be made up on Friday evenings. Please note that rain outs will not be made up unless less than Little League required number of games are played. Home games to be played at Calplex or Lakeside Park. AAA & Majors teams may play 3-5 "interleague" games against Lowell, Byron Center or other area Little League teams (TBD).
With the exception of opening day, boys Majors will play games on Monday and Thursday with possible makeup games on Friday or Saturday. Please note that interleague games be played on other days. Games to be played at Calplex, Lakeside Park or at interleague opponent(s) fields.
Following the regular season, AAA and Majors will participate in end of the year "teams tournaments" starting in mid-to-late June. AAA will participate in a CBSL only tournament while Majors will participate in the Little League District 9 Tournament across West Michigan. All CBSL teams will participate in these tournaments which conclude around July 1. Please plan your vacation/holiday calendars accordingly!
Little League/District 9 All-Star tournaments begin immediately following the team tournaments. CBSL will offer several teams from this division. If your son is nominated/selected to an All-Star team (and you accept), tournament play could run from July 1 through mid-August.
