League Divisions and Age Groups 

Lawrence Little League Baseball & Softball provides multiple divisions for children of all ages. We use a combination of your child’s “Little League age” and their playing ability to place children in a division that will provide them an appropriate level of instruction and competition. \

Player Registration

Creating an LTJBSA account on this website will ensure you receive an email alert when online registration opens. Generally, registration opens in December for the following Spring Season. 

Team Assignment 

Once registration closes, managers in each division will meet and draft their teams. Players will be drafted based on a combination of their age and skill level. Our goal is to set up teams and divisions that are fair and balanced in order to give each player a positive playing experience and to further their skill development.

For returning players, coaches will track their skill level year-to-year. For new players, we may ask your child to participate in a short workout so the coaches can become familiar with them. 

Little League rules do not allow us to place players on the same team as a result of a request. The draft process is in place in order to ensure balanced teams. 

Individual Skills Clinics and Team Practices

Lawrence Little League hosts free and fee-based winter training clinics to help build individual skills. By registering for our email list, you will be notified when these clinics are scheduled. All clinics are held in our indoor training facility at Central Park.

Team practices begin in March once the draft is concluded. When the weather warms, teams will practice outside on the fields. During the season, each team will have 1 scheduled practice night. 

Our Season

Each team will generally play two games per week - one on a weeknight and one on Saturday. . Game times during the week start at 6:00pm. (Older players may have a slighter later start time). The games on Saturday will vary each week with games generally starting at 10:00am and running through the afternoon.  There are typically no games played on Sundays. 

Softball includes an interleague program where girls will play against other local towns, home and away

Special Dates

  • Opening Day is usually the first or second Saturday of April. The League hosts a parade for all players as well as opening ceremonies. Bring your camera!

  • Photo Day is generally on a Saturday in late April. Team and Individual Pictures are taken. Your coach will provide you with information about picture packages the schedule for your team. 

All-Star Tournaments & Other Playing Opportunities

Lawrence Little League is part of New Jersey District 12, which produces summer tournaments in all age groups. These tournaments generally take place during the month of July. All managers in a division meet to select players for an All-Star team.

Lawrence Little League’s sister organization, Lawrence Competitive Travel, offers additional opportunities for players to build their skills.
