As we start to prepare for our upcoming 2017 Queen Creek Little League season, we continue to work to make our league better and a great experience for all of our families. We want to share some changes that will impact how players are assigned to divisions and teams in our league for the upcoming season. As changes are happening, it is important that as a league we are being clear and transparent about how this process is going to work.
The 2017 division structure of our league will be as follows:
Boundary - You must live or attend a school within our boundary. NO EXCEPTIONS! (A map of our boundary is attached.)
League Age – A chart is attached that will help you determine the league age of your child, or you can use the calculator on the Little League website found at: http://www.littleleague.org/
Tee Ball and Machine Pitch Division teams are formed by directly assigning players to teams. This is done through coach requests, friend requests and geographic proximity of the players.
Junior Minor, Senior Minor and Major Division teams are formed through a player draft. This is a method where coaches take turns selecting players until all the teams are formed. A player tryout is conducted to assess current performance levels of the players so that coaches can draft them into a division that is best suited to their current abilities. It is also the way we strive to keep the league balanced and competitive. The term “tryout” is a formal term, as this is more of an evaluative process and all registered players will be drafted to a team.
Player Tryout Process for Junior Minor, Senior Minor and Major Divisions
All players league aged 7 through 12 must complete a spring tryout to be eligible to be drafted into these divisions. The following are the only exceptions to this process:
Actual Tryout Process/Logistics
The player tryout will take place on February 4th at Desert Mountain Park. The tryout will start at 8:00 am with the league age 12 players and progress with age until all kids have completed the tryout. Each player will be evaluated through the following activities:
The tentative schedule will be as follows:
We will firm up tryout times once we have more firm number of the number of players at each league age.
Player Placement to Junior Minor, Senior Minor and Major Divisions
After the player tryout, the draft process will ultimately determine the division the player will be placed in. There are a few situations/exceptions during the draft that will guide players to specific divisions. They are the following:
The only exception will be if the player was in a higher division the previous year (For example: A league age 11 year old that played in the Major Division in the previous season will be placed in the Majors Division as a “blind draft pick”.)
