Softball Majors Ages 9-12
The Major League is a competitive program that focuses of developing a more advanced understanding of softball strategy as well as refinement of skills. Players between the ages of 9 through 12 years old can try out for the Major League. Any 9 year old wishing to try out for Majors must have played one year of Minors softball.
According to Little League International, there is a minimum allowable playing time rule - 6 consecutive defensive outs and one at bat per game. Player's knowledge and experience will grow with the regular game schedule, post season playoffs, and an extensive practice schedule. Players are selected for Majors through a try out process. All 11 & 12 year olds will play in Majors unless their family asks otherwise. Players previously selected for a Major league team do not tryout. Players are assigned to teams based on a draft.
Also, occasionally Cromwell Little League posts photos of events to our website and social media outlets. Your child's likeness may appear on one or more of these photos. If there is a particular photo/photos that you object to please let Cromwell Little League know and we will remove it as soon as possible.
Practices: Usually 2 per week beginning late March
Games: 16 total regular season games, usually 2 per week from April to early June.
