Sandbagging is NOT TOLERATED HERE!
Sandbaggers will be bumped up before they leave the park and not be bumped down.
NOTE: The State Director will reclassify teams according to their performance playing in OTC sanctioned events throughout the year along with viewing teams game results from other organizations as well.
AA: "Average" Teams that are striving to be AAA.
AAA: "Above Average" Teams that are striving to be MAJORS.
MAJORS: "High Caliber" Teams in ages 10U-13U.
9-AAA may play 10-AA due to this being their first year of kid pitch.
10-MAJOR & 12-MAJOR teams playing up 1 age must play in AAA 1 age higher.
IF MAJORS TEAMS REGISTER EARLY FOR EVENTS WITH OTC LIKE THEY DO WITH OTHER ORGS THEN THEY CAN ALWAYS PLAY IN CLASS.
EX WHEN PLAYING UP:
9-AAA may play 10-AA
10-MAJOR may play 11-AAA
12-MAJOR may play 13-AAA
11-MAJOR teams playing up 1 age at 50/70 must play in AAA 1 age higher.
EX: 11-MAJOR may play 12-AAA
7U: Plays OPEN.
8U & 9U : These ages will have two (2) classifications AA and AAA with AAA being the higher caliber teams.
If we feel a 7U, 8U, or 9U team is a powerhouse then they will PLAY UP 1 age.

15U: Plays OPEN. Any High Powered 15U Team Will Play 17U.
