Why some players are moved up

Each year, Crown City Little League will move up a certain number of 8 year olds into the Minor Division and 10 year olds into the Major Division. The number of players that are chosen to move up each year is dictated by the number of players needed to round our division numbers. For example: If the Major Division has sixty eight 11 and 12 year olds, this is not enough players to make six teams of 12 players. We would then move up four ten year olds. We have developed criteria for choosing those players who are moved up.

Skills Assessment - Each year CCLL conducts a Skills Assessment Day. The intent is to group players of similar abilities together for the draft. This ensures the teams are as fair as possible. At Skills Assessment Day evaluators with coaching experience view each player at a series of skill stations. The players are given grades at each station and then given an overall score. The higher the score, the more likely it will be that the player will be moved up.

Parent/Player Request - If a parent and/or player feels strongly about which division they play in, this is taken into consideration. There are however, no guarantees that any such request will be honored.

Parents should remember that this is a youth sport. It is not a big deal if a player is not "moved up". We would urge parents to be supportive of their players and all of the volunteers in the league. Most issues, with parent support, usually work out for the best.
