And 4…. Start your tournaments!
The best way to start a little league program is in the tee ball/coach pitch ages (5-8) and in the minor/major ages (9-12). In these ages, boys and girls can safely play together and most of the children are learning the game together. It is also a good age for parents to get involved and coach or help the teams. The field requirements are smaller and participation is usually larger.
