AAA DivisionUpdated Thursday February 15, 2018 by NWLL.
Background: NWLL’s AAA Division is for 9-10 year-olds. Play is a kid pitch format, where players learn to pitch. The level of play, development of skills, and acquisition of baseball knowledge progresses quickly with each week.
Players have “tryouts” for the spring season in February and are drafted onto teams, with every effort made to distribute teams evenly and ensure that we have balanced competition. No matter how a player performs in the tryout, he/she is placed on a team. Spring 2017 Tryouts will occur on February 25 between 1:00-8:00 pm at St. Alban's School Martin Gym.
Games at the AAA level rely heavily on the ability to pitch and catch. Stealing and new base-running strategies are also developed. Coaches offer patience and supportive instruction as players learn baseball skills.
Each spring team elects three players (voted by their teammates) to the All-Star game traditionally played on Memorial Day. Playoffs commence in the first two weeks in June, with the winner receiving a championship trophy.
