This Division is for players that are generally 9 to 11 years old (generally 4th, 5th and 6th grade).
The date used to determine a players age is their Calendar Year of Birth.
Born 2008 = 11 Years Old
Born 2009 = 10 Year Old
Born 2010 = 9 Year Old
Players born 20011 are NOT eligible for this division UNLESS they attend a tryout for the Minors Division and are accepted into division by the Commissioner.
Players Born 2007 are NOT eligible for this division and will be moved to Majors UNLESS there is an acceptable reason presented to the Commissioner (this occurs on very limited basis).
Teams are drafted with generally 11 or 12 players on a team.
Games are only played against other Hillcrest teams.
Each child participates in the batting order and fielding positions (10 fielders).
This is a competitive division. There are standings recorded and end of season playoffs.
Trophies are awarded to only the first place team, no participation trophies.
Tryouts are conducted solely for purposes of determining matched teams.
If you are age eligible for this division, you will be drafted on a team provided your registration has been submitted on time AND registration fees are paid in full.
Once registration ends and teams are selected late registrations will be subject to a wait list.
