District 5 Tournament Information

Posted by Sandy Harrington at May 22, 2016 5:00PM PDT ( 0 Comments )

The D5 tournaments will begin on Friday, June 24th and, weather permitting, will run through July 3rd for most divisions.  No games are scheduled to be played on July 4th; however, this is subject to change due to weather and time constraints.  The tournaments will be hosted by Tuckahoe Little League and Mechanicsville Little League.

Check out our 2016 D5 Tournament page for updates and brackets. 

The 2016 Virginia State Tournament dates have been released. Click here to view report dates and locations. 


During the 2016 spring meeting of the Little League International Board of Directors, the following items were implemented:

ITEMS TO BE IMPLEMENTED IMMEDIATELY FOR THE 2016 SEASON:

Regulation I(b) and Tournament Manager and Coaches - All Division of Baseball and Softball: Summary: Beginning with the 2016 tournament season, League Presidents may be eligible to be selected by local league Board of Directors as tournament team manager or coach with written approval from their respective District Administrator. In the event that a District Administrator does not approve the selection, the League President may request the District Administrator determination be reviewed by the Little League International Charter/Tournament Committee through the appropriate Regional Office.  

Regulation VI(c), Playing Rule 3.03, and Tournament Rule 10 (Softball)- Softball Junior, Senior, and Big League: Summary: This allows players within the Junior, Senior, and Big League Softball divisions to be replaced on the pitcher's plate and return to pitch, even if removed from the game, providing they meet the substitution, charged conference, and mandatory play rule(s).  

Tournament Release of Names and Tournament Team Practice- All Divisions of Baseball and Softball: Summary: This change allows leagues to release their tournament teams and begin holding tryouts or practices by tournament teams starting on June 1. Teams shall not be released until the availability and eligibility of all prospective team members has been established. Previously, leagues could announce their teams on June 15 or two weeks prior to the start of their tournament. The Little League group accident insurance underwritten by an AIG member company for tournament teams will not go into effect until June 1. In the event that a tournament would start prior to June 14, a league must obtain a waiver from the Little League International Charter/Tournament Committee to announce its tournament team and begin to hold tryouts or practice prior to the new date of June 1. All leagues are strongly encouraged to continue to provide regular season and special game opportunities for their players after June 1.

Tournament Player Eligibility- Baseball and Softball 9/10-, 10/11-, 11/12-Year-Old Divisions: Summary: This change expands the tournament opportunities, making these three tournaments open to a three-year range of players, and provides leagues additional flexibility in their player selection. The new age structure will create the 8/9/10-Year-Old Division; 9/10/11-Year-Old Division; and 10/11/12-Year-Old Division.  

ITEMS TO BE IMPLEMENTED FOR THE 2017 SEASON:

Regulation 1(a) and IV(c)- Baseball and Softball Major, Intermediate (50/70), Junior, Senior, and Big League: Summary: This change provides participants at these levels of play the ability to participate in two divisions, provided they qualify under age requirements, Residency/School Attendance Eligibility Requirements, programs, and divisions of play. A player may only be selected to one Tournament team, and must meet tournament eligibility requirements for that specific division.
