1. ISSAQUAH LITTLE LEAGUE BOUNDARY

Little League International requires all participants at every level in a local league must either reside and/or attend school within the boundary of the league. Players that do not reside within a league boundary but attend a school that is physically located within the league boundary are permitted to participate in that league with full eligibility. If your player does not meet eligibility, they may still be permitted to play by submitting a waiver. Learn more about the waiver process.   

Issaquah Little League does not require you to provide proof of residence to register for the Little League season unless your player is selected for All-Stars. If your player is selected for All-Stars you will be notified of requirements at that time.

SOFTBALL DIVISIONS

T-Ball/A Ages 4-7 T-Ball/A softball is the first level of our softball program. T-ball/A is geared toward teaching softball fundamentals such as proper throwing, fielding and batting techniques. Girls typically play at this level for two years. The T-ball/A program starts kids on a tee and introduces them to coach-pitched balls when they're ready. Kids play in all of the defensive innings, rotating positions each inning, and will bat in all innings of a game. T-ball/A uses a 10" safety (soft) ball.
AA

Ages 7-8 At this level of play there is increased focus on basic skills, teamwork, respect for coaches and umpires, and the rules of the game while still retaining a fun atmosphere. Coaches pitch to the players using a soft safety 11" softballl. Team formation is based upon home school as much as possible. Expect either a game and a practice or two games each week.

 

Fastpitch Competitive Divisions

AAA

Age 9-10 Players pitch for the first time and stealing is introduced! Coaches still pitch to a player because walks are not allowed, although strike outs are. This is the entry into competitive baseball with increased emphasis on basic skills, playmaking decisions, teamwork along with respect for umpires and coaches. Intensity level of play appropriately increased. Safety 11" softballs are used. Balanced teams are formed as Managers DRAFT players to be on their team using results from the mandatory Skills Evaluation. Scorekeeping and game scores are all introduced. Expect one practice and one game each week OR two games a week.

Coast

Age 10-11 The level of competition increases as players pitch with steals allowed. Emphasis on basic skills, playmaking decisions, teamwork and respect for umpires and coaches. 11" regulation softball will be used. Balanced teams are formed as Managers DRAFT players to be on their team using results from the mandatory Skills Evaluation. Scorekeeping and game scores are kept. Expect one practice and two games each week or two games.

Majors

Ages 11-12 Advanced, competitive play. Emphasis on refining of all skills learned at previous levels. Balanced teams are formed as Managers DRAFT players to be on their team using results from the mandatory Skills Evaluation. 12" regulation softball will be used.

Juniors (Age 13-14)

Ages 13-14 Advanced, competitive play. Players must be ready to add more skill and strategy to their game. Defensive awareness along with knowing where to make the play and how to run the bases becomes a more critical part of the game.
