Division Guidelines

Division Structure and Grade Guidelines

(**based on players grade for the 2023-2024 school year)

VLL believes that in most cases it is in the best interest of our players to play in the standard Little League age-appropriate league and we may refuse special placement requests for safety, competitive balance and/or Little League compliance reasons. We want kids to play with their age and grade level peers.

If your player is currently rostered on a Verona Little League sponsored tournament team, please refer to your child’s head coach for league placement guidance.

If you want to discuss special placement in a league above or below your child’s grade-based league, please email your child’s name & special request to our league registrar at

We do not currently have a program for players born after September 1, 2017. Those with birth dates after this date are considered too young for Little League baseball and should consider playing with the Verona Rec department.

As Verona Little League wants to ensure a safe and fun environment for all players, all players go through a skills assessment in early spring.  All kindergarteners will be considered for a team based on the assessment.  It isn’t a tryout but a way to make sure that the younger players are ready for league play. 

Kindergartners are welcome to signup for our rookies division. If after assessments, your child is given the green light to play in our league then we also ask that a parent be willing to support or coach with the coaching team as part of your child’s participation.
