The Minor B Division in Illinois District 13 is comprised of league ages 6 to 9 who are new to softball and Little League. This is an instructional division which includes coach pitch and will focus on the fundamentals of the game. Here is an age chart to help determine registration eligibility for your player since there could be overlap with the T-Ball and Minor A levels.
League Age 6 - If your player is League Age 6 and has no previous playing experience, we would recommend registering them for T-Ball. Any player who is league age 6 does have the option to be evaluated for the Minor B division. The results of the evaluation will be discussed with the parents to determine which division CDGS would recommend the player enrolls in for the upcoming season.
League Age 7 - Qualifies for Minor B and will be required to attend player evaluation.
League Age 8 - Qualifies for Minor B. League Age 8 years old with previous playing experience may have the opportunity to move up to the Minor A Division. To determine if a player is eligible, they must attend the player evaluation. If interested, you may select this option during the registration process.
League Age 9 - If your player has never played softball, it is recommended that they register and play in Minor B to get experience. If they would like to play in Minor A, they must attend the player evaluation to determine eligibility. If interested, you may select this option during the registration process.
Note: The player evaluations will not guarantee that they will be moved up to the higher division. This will be based on the evaluation results and will be discussed with the parents/guardians and the player agent.
The cost for the Minor B season is $190. This will include a player jersey, socks, visor, 12-14 games, and practices. Every family will have the opportunity to earn $50 in the form of a reimbursement by volunteering 4 hours to various league activities during the season. There will be an early bird discount of $15 available if you register by January 19th. NOTE: YOU MUST PAY FOR REGISTRATION BY THE EARLY BIRD END DATE OR THE DISCOUNT WILL BE REMOVED
All players eligible for the Minor B Division must attend the player evaluations, which will take place in early March. This will give the player agent, league officials, and team managers the opportunity to assess the skills and experience of every player to determine and recommend their appropriate placement in their eligible division(s).
