League Determination
Little League® International sets aging dates annually. Ages are based on the players age as of Aug. 31. Please use the below chart to determine the appropriate league for your child. Little League provides an online league age determination tool to assist as well.

For ages 3-4, Grove City Parks and Recreation teams up with Bally Sports Group for basic sports instruction. Little Sluggers T-ball provides basic baseball instruction for preschoolers in Windsor Park on Fridays in spring (May-June) and fall (September-October) sessions.

Eligibility – Residency-related Change for 2022

Please note: this year, there is a Little League affiliate serving Galloway. Per Little League rules, any player who lives within the boundary of the Galloway Baseball Club Little League must play Little League baseball for that organization. If a player does not live or attend school within the boundaries established by Little League for the Grove City or Galloway organizations, he or she may play in either league, but is ineligible for an all-star team. Unfortunately, there is no grandfather clause regarding this eligibility. Addresses in the area north of Johnson Road, west of Norton Road, northwest of Georgesville Road, and north of Clime Road fall in the Galloway district.

Please visit the Little League League Finder to confirm your proper league.
