My child is not ready for the level he/she was drafted into, what can I do?
The Little League goes to great lengths to assure each child is placed on a team with his/her peers. The Spring season begins with an evaluation in which the League Committees and Managers view each child and rate them on their abilities in running, batting, fielding and throwing. Detailed notes are taken and combined with the players statistics from previous seasons. This data is used in a draft for Majors, AAA and AA in which all managers are given the opportunity to select players for their team. Majors are first, then AAA and finally AA. This provides a fair distribution of players for each playing level.
During the first few practices there may be adjustments by the Player Agent, although very rare. If a manager questions whether a child is really ready for that level, he/she will contact the Player Agent and the League Committee may attend and view first hand the child's playing ability. A determination is made and appropriate action taken.
Please allow the process to take its course and, after a few practices, if you and the Manager still feel strongly about it please contact your Player Agent. Player agent contact information can be found on the Board of Director's page in the left hand column.
