Crystal Lake Little League


Minors AA Division  $225
Unlike other programs, Crystal Lake Little League does not require any mandatory fundraising or charge additional $100 fee.
2 FREE Winter clinics are also included & we offer a $25 discount for each additional family member registered.

Crystal Lake Little League is excited to welcome players to little league style baseball in the AA Division. Please know that your son or daughter will have a fun and wonderful experience learning the game of baseball and developing their skills, building on what they have learned in the rookie and/or Minors A division, with fundamental instruction and energetic teaching as our focus. Besides building upon the skills learned in the previous levels of play, the position of pitcher is introduced at this division. While many standard baseball rules are introduced and game scores and standings are kept, this is still an instructional based division.

Recommended for First and Second Grade Players (ages 7 & 8 as of August 31)

  •  Please see the age chart in the FAQ section if you have any questions, or email us at [email protected] 
  • Your child will be placed on a team after an evaluation process and a Manager draft to attempt to divide skill level evenly across all teams.
