Division Ages Information
T-Ball 4 to 6 year olds

"Guided by Little League's Tee Ball Program, this program is for beginner players and most players are ready to move up to Division A after one season of Tee Ball. We use our best efforts to organize teams by school but pending registration distribution, sometimes schools are split among two teams. Target team size is 7-8 players to provide more personal attention during practices and more reps during games. Starting after the LWSD Spring Break, there will be two one-hour "sessions" each week- practice on Wednesday evening and game on Sunday afternoon. Players learn to hit safety baseballs off of a batting tee. There is no "coach pitch" in Tee Ball. During games, all players will bat each inning and play in the field. KNLL does not use catchers in Tee Ball. Go here to read more about what to expect as a parent. Little League manager and coaches are parent volunteers. If you are interested in coaching your son's team, please contact director.tball@kirklandnational.com to find out how to sign-up!

A 5* to 8 year olds Designed for second year players, this division is coach pitch only. Typically 1-2 practices/games per week. Practices start March 1, games at end of March. All players bat and 9 players are allowed on the field/inning. Teams are organized by school.
AA 7 to 9 year olds The entry level kid pitch division. Pitchers pitch from a distance of 46' with no walks - after 4th ball the coach comes in to finish pitching to the batter. The goal is to develop pitchers and to allow boys time to adjust to kid pitch. Teams are organized by school.
AAA 9 to 11 year olds AAA is the stepping stone to Majors baseball. Pitchers pitch from 46'. Players must attend at least one Player Evaluation and are drafted onto teams for parity.
Majors 10 to 12 year olds Majors is competitive baseball. Pitchers pitch from 46'. Players must attend at least one Player Evaluation and are drafted onto teams for parity.
Juniors 13 to 14 year olds Juniors baseball is competitive baseball for 13 and 14 year olds.
