Please register if you are interested in Managing or Coaching for LL Age 8 to 12 this summer. Last year we did not have enough volunteers. In fact last year was the first time in the leagues history we did not offer an 8 yr old summer team. If we do not get enough managers to run teams the league will not be able to offer summer ball to all that are interested. Please consider signing up today at: http://lynnfieldlittleleague.com/Registration
The Board will review all applicants and vote for the managers. Managers will be voted in preparation for the summer season.
Once managers and teams are selected managers will be able to select the coaches who have completed and submitted the required CORI application to the LLL Board. The CORI form can be found on the Document section under the LLL Home tab.
* Please note: All manager and coaching applicants MUST complete a CORI Application. LLL will not be able to consider you for any position without a completed CORI form.
Hard to believe the season is already more than half over. As like last year Lynnfield Little League will be entering teams into several summer tournaments this year. The league is trying to be proactive to see how many players will be available for summer baseball. We ask each player to go through this registration process and answer a few simple questions so that we can determine your player’s interest and commitment. Pleas note that the league will only be supporting the tournaments listed in this survey. Any other tournaments players wish to play in will not be supported by Lynnfield Little League.
Please note this DOESNOT mean your child has made or will make any of the summer teams. As per league rules players who make the district teams players will be nominated by the manager and then voted on by the collective managers within their division. More information on the selection process can be found within the Lynnfield Little League local rules.We will also attempt to offer non district team baseball opportunities but only if we have enough interest and and most importantly VOLUNTEERS to manage those teams.
This survey will simply help the league in determining which players will commit to playing summer baseball. Please note some of the items related to these teams:
·Playing on a district team must be a #1 priority for all participants. 100% attendance for all team practices and games is mandatory.
·Also, please note the rules for districts allow that if a team has 13 players, players are only required to get 1 at bat and do not have to play the field, unlike our local rules during the season where a player needs to play a minimum 4 innings in the field.
·Non District teams will have a more flexible schedule to work with each individual manager to determine coverage for the team.
Thank you for your time in completing this survey process and we look forward to offering more baseball to our players this summer.

The 2016 Lynnfield Little League Golf Outing is scheduled for August 29, 2016 at Four Oaks Country Club in Dracut MA. Ask anyone who played last year and they will tell you it was a great time and they raised over $4,000 for Lynnfield Little League.
The cost is $150.00 a Player. You can coordinate a foursome or just show up and we will place you with a fun group - singles, twosomes, and threesomes are welcome. Price includes golf with cart, dinner and gift bag.
On October 21, 2015, Lynnfield Little League (LLL) Board of Directors (Board) approved the following age based divisions of play for the 2016 spring season. The names for the divisions have changed to fall in line with most of the surrounding little league divisions in our district but the ages for these groups remain the same. It also coincides with the traditional MLB levels in baseball so it provides another teaching opportunity for our players to learn more about the structure of baseball. As just like the pros before you can make the "Majors" a player works through the develpment levels.
LLL will be using a modified version of Little League International's age based rule for division of play. The age based division of play will incorporate the new Little League International age chart. (See Little League International Age Chart in the Document Section on the LLL website or on the Main Page)
League Age for the upcoming season:
Single A (former Pony - Coach Pitch)
Double A (former Farm, Kid Pitch)
Triple A (formerly Minors)
Sr. Big Diamond
Please note: Although you may see an overlap of ages in different divisions, your child will be placed in the appropriate division decided by the Board and Managers based on the child's ability to play within that division.
In order to create parity in the team selection process, all players League Age 8 thru 12 (excluding those who played in the Major Division the prior year as they will automatically be placed in Majors again) must attend a tryout. Failure to attend a tryout will result in the player being placed in lowest Division based on their league age in which they are eligible.
Sr. Big Diamond Division will hold their player selection process. All 15 & 16 Year old players will be placed in Big Diamond Division.
Big Diamond Division will hold their player selection process. All 13 & 14 Year old players will be placed in the Senior League Division.
Major League Division will hold their player selection process. At this draft, all League Age 12 year olds will automatically make the Major League as this is a rule from Little League International. The managers will then fill out their rosters with any league age 11 or 10 year olds that they select. Once the Major draft is completed......
.....The Triple A Division will hold their player selection process. Any league age 11 & 10 year old that did not get selected for the Majors will automatically be selected to a team in the Triple A division through a player selection process. Any 9 year old that is capable of playing in Triple A will be selected to round out the rosters spots. (Let's say Triple A needs 72 players in order to have 6 teams of 12 per team. Let's also assume there are only 65 who are league age 11 & 10. This means the Triple A Division needs 7 more players to get to 72. Provided that the Board and managers feel as though seven 9-year old players are capable of playing in Triple A, then those seven kids would be selected to a Triple A teams to fill out the roster spots). Once this draft is completed......
......The Double A Division will hold their player selection process. Any league age 9 year old that did not make the Triple A Division, will automatically be placed in the Double A Division. Any league age 8 year old that that is capable of playing in the Double A will be selected to round out the rosters spots as described in the Triple A section. Once this draft is completed.....
.....The Sinlge A Division will hold their player selection process. Any league age 8 year old that did not make the Double A Division will automatically be placed in the Sinlge A Division along with all league age 7 year olds. Additionally, the league adopted in 2016 the Little League International rule that 6 year olds can be eligible for the Sinlge A Division, however they would have to successfully completed one year of the Tee Ball Division. Additionally, it will still be based on space needed for the Single A Division and if the Board and managers determine if the player is capable to play at this level.
Tee Ball Division will hold their player selection process. All league age 5 & 6 year old players will be placed into the Tee Ball Division.
