Major A Division
10 - 12 year olds
The premier division in Kerrisdale Little League baseball, this division is primarily for 11 and 12 year old boys and girls; however, some highly skilled 10 year olds may be drafted onto teams based on their previous year's coach assessment and pre-season assessment scores. This is the most competitive and skilled level in Kerrisdale Little League and requires a high degree of commitment from both coaches and players. Between practices and games, players can expect to play ball 2-3 times a week.
Home games and practices will be played at Elm Park. This Division will interlock with and play away games against Jericho and Little Mountain teams.

The In-Season Development is an optional 6-week development program led by professional coaches provided by Kerrisdale Little League to Major A, B and Minor A players.
This program is for players interested in further developing their skills and will be a great chance to get technical instruction from pro coaches on fielding, throwing, hitting and pitching.
There is no cost to this program but space is limited. Players who register for this program are expected to attend all of the sessions to remain in the program.
