2019 NTLL Division Descriptions

Below are basic descriptions of the divisions for NTLL. Please note that the age of your player today or when the season starts is not necessarily their "league age" in all cases. The league ages have been set by Little League International and not NTLL. If you are trying to decide between 2 divisions because there will be cases where players are eligible for 2 divisions, please take into account your player's ability and where you think that they will have the most fun and best overall experience!
