The Little League Baseball and Softball program includes divisions for all children, ages 4–16.
Baseball and softball divisions are as follows:

  • Tee Ball (ages 4-6, co-ed)
  • Minor League Coach Pitch Baseball (ages 7-8, 6 year olds who have played tee ball if skill level and space permits)
  • Minor League Coach Pitch Softball (ages 6-8, 5 year olds who have played tee ball if skill level and space permits)
  • Minor League Player Pitch Baseball and Softball (ages 9-10, 8 year olds if skill level and space permits, 11 year olds who need more time to develop their skills)
  • Major Division Baseball and Softball (ages 11-12, 10 year olds if skill level and space permits)
  • Intermediate (50/70) Baseball (ages 11-13)
  • Junior League Baseball and Softball (ages 12-14)
  • Senior League Baseball and Softball (ages 13-16) (High school players eligible after the conclusion of their school season.)

A player's placement within a division is based on League Age, experience, and maturity.  Some levels may require participation in a skills assessment before final placement is made. SYBL may move a player to a different level than where they were originally registered if it is in their best interest.

Divisions offered in Salem each season and number of teams created depend on number of players registered, results of skills assessment, and number of volunteer coaches available.  Divisions with low enrollment may be reassigned to other levels or combined with neighboring leagues, if possible.

League Age may differ from actual age.  To determine your child's League Age visit https://www.littleleague.org/play-little-league/determine-league-age
