The league is broken down into 6 divisions:

The Major Division is the most competitive division for boys and girls ages 10 to 12. The main difference between the Major Division & the AAA Division is that the quality of pitching, hitting and fielding is noticeably better than in AAA. The emphasis at this level is to teach the specialized skills of the game and provide a competitive environment for those players who wish to develop skills which can be used at a higher level. All players at this level are ensured of having fun while competing against similar talented players. All 12 year olds MUST play at the Major league level unless a waiver is provided by the parents to the League Director. Fee includes Jersey, hat, and socks.
(Age: 8/31/12 - 9/1/09, Cost: $215/player, Practices begin April 4th. Games begin April 25th and are to be played on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays* 

The AAA-Division is for 10- to 11-year-old boys and girls who want to continue to develop their baseball skills. 12 year olds may also play in AAA if a parental waiver is provided to the AAA Director. The major difference between AAA and AA is that the pitching, fielding and hitting is noticeably improved and an increased element of competition is added. Fee includes Jersey, hat, and socks.
(Age: 8/31/12 - 9/1/09, Cost: $215/player, Practices begin April 4th. Games begin April 25th and are to be played on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and some Saturdays)

The AA-Division is for 9-year-old boys and girls who want to continue to develop their baseball skills with live pitching. The major difference between AA and A is that the players pitch and development of pitching, hitting and fielding is emphasized. From an instructional standpoint, the main objective of this division is to develop pitchers and catchers and to get the kids comfortable at the plate batting against live pitching. Fee includes Jersey, hat, and socks.
(Age: 8/31/13 - 9/1/12, Cost: $215/player, Practices begin April 4th. Games begin April 25th and are to be played on Tuesdays and Thursdays)

The A-Division is for boys and girls ages 7-8. A pitching machine is used to ensure that the players get consistent pitches in the games. There are no called balls or strikes, each player will receive 7 pitches and the emphasis is on fundamentals of baseball and having fun! Fee includes Jersey, hat, and socks.
(Age: 8/31/15 - 9/1/13, Cost: $215/player, Practices begin April 4th. Games begin April 25th and are to be played no more than 3 times per week Monday through Friday)

The Rookie League is for boys and girls who are little league age 5 or 6 and who want to learn the basic fundamentals of baseball in an age-appropriate setting. Both coach-pitched balls and an instructional batting tee are used to accommodate all skill levels. Games and practices will last one hour and the emphasis at this level is to teach the basics of the game and ensure that all players have fun and graduate to the A ball division. Fee includes Jersey, hat, and socks.
(Age: 8/31/17 - 9/1/15, Cost: $115/player - late fee does not apply. Games and practices begin around April 26th and will be played Tuesdays and Thursdays. They are one hour and fifteen minutes in length and start at either 5:15 or 6:30.

In addition to the above, there is a Senior Division for players ages 13-16 who would like to continue playing in Little League.
(Age: 8/31/08 - 9/1/04, Cost: $200/player)

Tournament Teams

The application process for Tournament Team Manager selection will begin in early May.  The process includes completing the online form, submitting a coaching resume, and being interviewed at the May Board of Directors meeting.

GPFCLL selects players for their tournament teams by two different methods, based on age.

In mid-May, for the 10 yo State Team, 11 yo State Team, and the 12 yo International Team, players are picked by the managers of each division.  Each manager picks the top 10 players from the other teams they play in their division (they do not pick any players from their team) and the 10 players with the most votes become the team.  The Tournament Team Manager and their staff can then appoint up to 3 more players to round out the team.

In late-May, for 8 yo and 9 yo Local Tournament Teams, players attend a tryout.  GPFCLL strives to have 2 tournament teams for each age group, but this is ultimately determined by how many show up for the tryout.  We do this to develop as many of our players as possible and provide a higher level of competition in the future.  Players must have been registered in the Spring season of GPFCLL and come to the tryout in order to be selected for a team.
