Spring 2017 Baseball Age and Tuition Requirements

For Tee Ball through Minors, a player's school grade determines his or her league.  However, based on a player's age and talent level, he or she has the opportunity to play up in a higher league than his or her school grade would otherwise dictate, if there are spots available, beginning with the AAA league.

Little League age is calculated based on the player's age on April 30th or August 31st depending on birth year.

* All 2nd Graders have the option to play in AA Ball.  2nd Graders who are 8 years old by August 31, 2017 may also attend a separate AAA evaluation, as there may be a limited number of 2nd Grade 8 year olds needed to fill in some AAA roster spots.  If a player tries out for AAA but does not get chosen he or she will be placed automatically on a AA team.

*** All 4th Graders have the option to play in Minors.  4th Graders who are 10 years old by
August 31, 2017 may also try out for Majors.  If a player tries out for Majors but does not get chosen he or she will be placed automatically on a Minors team

 
DLL New Player Field Improvement Fee - Increased participation in the baseball and softball programs has put enormous pressure on all of our facilities. In order to continue to maintain and improve McGuane and to ensure the highest quality playing conditions at all of the other facilities that we use on an on going basis, the Field Improvement Fee of $100 will be assessed for first time registrants in Spring Darien Little League (returning players are not required to pay this fee).  If a player has played Summer Ball or Fall Ball but has not played in the Spring season he or she is considered a New Player.  The maximum field improvement fee per family is $200.

Board of Education Field Use Fee: The BOE has instituted a mandatory fee of $25 per player, per sport, per season to use the Darien school fields.  This fee will be in addition to your base registration fee and is automatically added.

DLL Annual Membership Fee: $10.  Members are permitted to vote each year at the Annual Meeting.

Scholarships:  Need based scholarships are available upon request.  Please contact Mary Pasierb at mpasierb@me.com with any questions.
