Rancho Cordova Little League 2017 Levels of Play

All ages referenced below are based on what the league age will be for 2017- please refer to chart above

* please note for the AMERICAN-MAJOR LEVELS, Managers consider before drafting players their skill levels as the National and Major divisions are competitive.  Some parents may be worried their league age 7 year old (7 by 8/31/2017) who played tee ball last year will end up in the American league. Most managers will choose a player who has played at least FARM in 2016 but most likely a returning American player. When assessments are done, all of the players who met a score criteria for that level are placed in the draft. For the American and National divisions-- everyone who will not move up but remain in those levels in 2017 (based on score and ability not by parent request) will be placed before any new players are brought up.
