Spring 2018 softball programs now open!

Below is a short explanation of each Softball Division employed by Elgin Classic Little League.   The Minor A and Major Divisions require a player evaluation to ensure that a player is in the correct division.  Elgin Classic also creates teams based on the skill level of its players - creating competitive balance between teams.  

The date and location for player evaluations are still to be determined.  

Teams will be chosen the middle of March and practices start in April when the weather breaks.  Our Opening Day Ceremony at Wing Park will be held on a Saturday in late April.  

Games for some of the older divisions start late April but most division games start early May.  The season runs through May and June.        


If you are NOT sure about which division to place your child, make a best guess.  We will make a final determination after your child is evaluated.


REGISTER SOON  TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT AVAILABLE THROUGH JANUARY 15!  LATE FEES HIT FEBRUARY 26!!

After reviewing the Softball Divisions below you can log into (or register) your account @ Elgin Classic Registration and register your child.
