Little League District 8 and our four member leagues are excited to announce the new structure for the teenage baseball divisions in 2022 as part of a pilot project approved by Little League International.
Community Stream and Competitive Stream (please see the attached PDF flyer with more details)
The Community stream will continue to offer local play at the league and/or district level with a spring season planned for May and June, and teenage summer ball teams formed to play in July.
The Competitive stream will see 'AAA' teams formed to play in the new Little League Alberta Triple A Performance League, which will offer provincial play against teams from North Calgary, Edmonton, Medicine Hat, Lethbridge and potentially other communities. Half the games are planned to be scheduled at home diamonds plus a longer playing season (28 to 32 games, April to August).
Players in both streams would be eligible for Tournament Play (All-Stars) in the summer months.
HOW TO REGISTER
All four leagues in District 8 (Calgary West, Rocky Mountain, Fish Creek and Calgary South) will open player registration in January. To play in either program simply register through your local league, and if interested in evaluating for the Competitive stream, simply indicate at the time of registration, there will be an option to do so.
We would like to hear from all players interested in playing on Competitive teams now!

This is a reminder to parents and players that all non-wood or laminated bats MUST display the "USA Baseball" certification logo (on the bat's handle) to be used in any Little League games or practices.
The only exceptions are in the Intermediate, Junior and Senior Divisions, for players age 13 to 16.
Intermediate and Junior Divisions: Bats with either the USA Baseball or BBCOR approved logos are permitted.
Senior Division: Non-wood bats must display the BBCOR certification logo. All bats must have a maximum -3 weight to length ratio (even if it's a solid one-piece wood bat).
All Divisions: Solid one-piece wood barrel bats are permitted without the USA Baseball logo in all divisions.

USA Baseball-approved bats that are 26" and shorter are approved for use only with soft core (T Ball) baseballs, as indicated on the bat. These bats can only be used in the T Ball and Rookie Ball Junior divisions.
