Eligibility for tryouts is based on LL Age or "Little League Age" Use the Chart below to determine your Little League Player’s Age.

The age chart looks a little funny for the 2005 players.  This is because Little League has changed the age cutoff date from April 30th to August 31st.

Players who are trying out for Majors do not need to tryout for AAA.  However you can attend both tryouts if you want to. 

All other players are required to tryout (even eleven year olds and returning AAA players).  We do this so that we may properly balance the teams.  

If you cannot make your tryout time slot you may show up at any time during the tryouts.  We use the schedule above to alleviate long lines. 

If you cannot make the Saturday tryout you can attend the Majors Tryout on Sunday September 17th.  Just mention when signing up at the tryout that you are here for AAA tryout. 

If you cannot make either tryout date there will be a supplemental tryout.  Contact Dave Lambert at    for Date and time.
