Eligibility
  • Player must play at level dictated by the respective summer league's age requirements, which typically have a cutoff of May 1st for Friendship (which differs from the Spring Little League cutoff of September 1st), and generally align with the Little League cutoff of September 1st in all other leagues. For example, a Little League 8-year-old playing Farm with a birthday in July 2010 is eligible for Friendship as well as the 9 YO Suburban League division, but a Little League 10-year-old with a birthday in July 2008 must play in the Suburban 10 YOdivision (or South River). Our apologies, but exceptions to Summer eligibility rules are not allowed. We must comply with district age guidelines.
