Although each tourney is different, the age groups will be 8-12U; April 1st being the cutoff date for age. Each participating team will be guaranteed four (4) games. Generally, there will be four to eight (8) teams in each age division, depending upon registration. Each team will play all the teams in their bracket in a round robin format with the top two teams two advancing to the Championship Bracket. Each tournament will be different, although modified Little League rules (except the All Star Warm up-regular LL rules) will apply and ALL players will bat. No big barrel bats allowed.
There is ample parking and a convenient concession stand as well as nearby coffee houses!
