Up-To-Date Little League Age Requirements

The International Little League has recently revised the age cutoffs for the 2016 season. The following is an explanation of what league your child will play in for this Rec Little League season. Also, there is a list of what all-star level your child will be eligible to rate for this summer if he is interested. Please note that Little League International is continuing to evolve their age requirements to keep Little League competitive and safe. These age cut-offs are determined by Little League International, and not the Randolph Little League Committee or the Randolph Recreation Department. These changes are for all towns playing Little League. If you have any questions, please contact Jeanne Montemarano at the Recreation Office 973-989-7081.
