What division is best for my child? While there is some flexibility depending on a player's experience an/or skill level, Taborvilla LL divisions generally consist of players with the following League Ages:

What is “League Age”? “League Age” refers to the age of your child according to Little League International's rules. How do I figure it out?  
-
In baseball, a player's League Age is the age reached before September 1 in any given year.
-
In softball, a player's League Age is the age reached by December 31 of the previous year.

We cannot form teams without coaches.

***PLEASE CONDIER SIGNING UP TO VOLUNTEER TO HELP THE LEAGUE***
(CLICK HERE to see Volunteer Incentives and Requirements)

We need volunteers to sign up and in order to sustain this model. This is a critical call for parents to step up, and to bring Taborvilla the same support that it has provided our community since 1952. It's up to you!
Any player’s parent, family member, trusted family friend, neighbor or other community member can volunteer that completes the Little League International background check – as all league volunteers are required. Little League is only possible with every parent giving something. An incentive discount is given to volunteers for their player.


Expectations:

Practice Days are set after the first meeting with the coach, and the field availability. We understand that players may also be playing soccer, please note that in the comments if that is the case, and if you know the practice days we will try to accommodate to place your player on a team that practices the opposite days. If you have coaching requests, player buddies, or other situations, you can share in the comments, and if there is a special issue, please send this information to [email protected] and share player first and last name, parent first and last name and contact information.

Tee Ball- (2) - 1 hour practices a week preseason and once the season is starts (2) games a week and possibly a practice. This is dependent on the Coach, Manager, Team Parents and weather. We strive for 3 solid hours a week, be that a combination of practice and games. The times/dates are decided on by the coach and team. Please share in comments if Tues/Thur or Mon/Weds works best for your player.

For Farm, Minors, Majors, Intermediates, Juniors and Seniors -  (2 to 3) practices a week preseason and once season starts (2) games a week and (1 to 2) practices - depending on the coach and team decision.
