Capitol Little League serving Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater & Thurston County

Which Division?

Which Division would be best for my player?

See the descriptions of divisions under the tabs marked JR (14); Intermediate (U13); Majors (U12); Minors (U10); AA Minor-Coach/Machine Pitch (U8); T-Ball and Challenger (special needs). 

Some players can double roster in two divisions: 
League age 11 & 12 may play in BOTH Majors and Intermediate.
League age 12 may play in Majors and EITHER Intermediate or Juniors.
League age 13 may play in BOTH Intermediate and Juniors.
League age 14 may play ONLY in Juniors.

PLAYERS WHO DOUBLE ROSTER CAN USE COUPON 53355 (updated code).  PLEASE REGISTER IN YOUR YOUNGEST DIVISION AND THEN USE THE COUPON FOR THE NEXT DIVISION.  IE--REGISTER IN MAJORS AND USE COUPON FOR EITHER INTERMEDIATE OR JUNIORS.  THE COUPON REDUCES THE COST OF THE SECOND DIVISION REGISTERED TO $50 TO COVER COST OF JERSEY AND HAT. 


Some things to keep in mind when considering choosing a division for  your player:

League age for ALL divisions this year is AGE as of August 31,2020--use League Age Calculator link to verify player league age.

Register for the division which you would prefer placement

Players league age 9 and above MUST have a preseason player evaluation 

Players league age 7 and 8 wanting to play in upper divisions MUST have a preseason evaluation

Players league age 6 can chose between T-Ball and AA Machine pitch--most should be in Machine pitch. 

Players league age 4 & 5 will be in T-Ball by Little League rule. 

IF player evaluation reveals a player should consider moving up or down, the parents will be contacted by a player agent to determine what they would like to do for their child.  In addition, if after practices begin, a manager feels a player needs to be moved to a different division, parents will be contacted by a player agent to discuss options.
