eligible to play in the Majors or Minors Division. Players Little League age 9
and under are not eligible for Majors.
If your child is 9 years old
(Little League age) and wants to play in the farm division, he/she should not
attend tryouts. If your child wants to play in Minors or is undecided, then
he/she should attend tryouts.
Tryouts will start on time and your child
needs to be available the entire time period (approximately 3 to 4 hours). It
is to your child's advantage to try out with the right age group. However, 9's
and 10's who cannot make the morning session can still try out at the afternoon
session and vice versa.
Each player will be required to demonstrate
playing ability in the following areas: Catching, throwing, fielding, hitting
and base running. Be sure that your child is dressed appropriately and has a
baseball glove and cleats. Bats and balls will be provided.

Information About Age Groups
8 and 9 year olds (league age):
In accordance with Serra
rules, all 11 and 12 year olds, must be placed in the Minors or Majors
Divisions (unless a parent requests a lower division). This means
8s, 9s and 10's will only be placed in Minors, regardless of
ability, if space allows.
10 year olds (league
By Serra rule, 10 year olds are eligible to be drafted to
Majors. Majors is the first level where Managers are not required to give equal
playing time to all and often the 10 year olds are affected. Parents of
10s who wish to have their child removed from consideration for Majors
should indicate that at the tryout check in by writing minors only
when they sign in.
11 year olds (league age):
11 year olds are expected to be drafted to the Majors Division. If you
would like to request a waiver for your child, please contact the Serra
Minors/Majors Player Agent at firstname.lastname@example.org.
12 year olds (league age):
In accordance with Little
League rules, all 12 year olds will be placed in the Majors Division unless
there is a special waiver. If you have questions or would like to get a waiver,
