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. Fee includes Jersey, hat, and socks.
(Age: 9/1/10 - 8/31/13, Cost: $215/player, Practices begin April 3rd. Games begin April 24th and are to be played on Mondays, Wednesdays, and some Fridays.

The AA-Division is for 9-year-old boys and girls who want to continue to develop their baseball skills with live pitching.

Fee includes Jersey, hat, and socks.
(Age: 9/1/13 - 8/31/14, Cost: $215/player, Practices begin April 3rd. Games begin April 24th and are to be played on Tuesdays and Thursdays)

(Age: 9/1/14 - 8/31/16, Cost: $215/player, Practices begin April 3rd. Games begin April 24th and are to be played no more than 3 times per week Monday through Saturday)

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.

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.
