What is the difference between Majors/National League?

If you have kids in the Majors/National League age group (11 and 12 Year Olds on the Little League Age Chart) you will have the option to designate where you would like your player to evaluate at initially. (MORE BELOW)

The Majors Division is a higher level of competition between teams within the Little League Alberta District 3 (North Calgary) and may play some exhibition games against other associations outside of those boundaries as well.  Depending on registration numbers and skill levels we may form up to 2 teams at this level. Additionally there are discussions at the District level to tier this offering based upon skill.  PLEASE NOTE - Registration for the MAJORS Division will close early in February and Evaluations will take place in Early to Mid-February.  The reason for this is that these teams will begin practicing indoors during February until later April.  Should your player make one of our Majors team, you will be invoiced an additional Indoor Training Fee (amount noted above) to cover these costs. Should your player NOT make one of the Majors teams, they will be moved into the National League for an additional Evalutation and Team Placement.

The National League Division is a division for our 11 and 12 year olds who do not make it on to a Majors Team.  In 2022 we had this division play games against other National League teams from neighbouring Associations - and we believe this will occur again for the 2023 season.  The players in the National League will evaluate in Mid-March and will be assigned to a team to begin practicing outdoors beginning in Mid-April.

When you go to Register your 11 and 12 year olds - you will need to choose either the MAJORS or NATIONAL LEAGUE option.  IF your choose Majors for your child/children - and they do not succesfully make one of our Majors Teams, then they will automatically be moved to the National League.
