West Pasco Little League

AAA or Minors Information


The "AAA" or "Minors" division is for players league age 8 - 11 only.  League age 8 players must have a recommendation to participate and/or display proper skills and abilities on evaluation day.  This is a developmental kid pitch division.  Rosters range from 11-13 players per team, typically.  This division is still focused on instruction and development of player skill sets.  This is a kid pitch exclusively division.  In this division teams play with the standard 9 players defensively but a continuous batting order is utilized. 

Games days are Saturday along with week day games.  Minor Division games when scheduled during the week are typically on Tuesday or Wednesday.  Teams will not play every Saturday over the course of a season.  There are also opportunities for teams to travel and play teams from other leagues.

Teams typically practice at least once per week along with a batting cage practice.  The teams practice day is determined by the team manager.  If specific day(s) of the week is/are not feasible for your family please be sure to include the special request portion when completing registration.  

Coach / Friend requests are limited.  WPLL strives for competitive balance using the statistics kept by each team the previous season.  Although we understand players wanting to continue to play with one another the goal as a league is to ensure teams are challenged each game for improved development.

All league age 9, 10, and 11 year old's are required to tryout for the majors division in a Spring season.  Some players will be assigned to the minor division well before the Major Division tryout date(s) but all register for the major division in spring seasons.  Players League age 9, 10 and 11 year old's that have played 2 seasons or more at the AAA level are encouraged to play in the majors division during the fall season to gain experience.  League age 9, 10 and 11 year old's who are new to kid-pitch should register for AAA.
