Georgia Little League

Georgia Rookie Tournaments

The Georgia State Little League Association created the Rookie Baseball Tournament in 2013.  The Rookie Softball Tournament was added in 2014.  The tournament is limited to league age 7 and 8 year olds.

These are Special Games Tournaments and as such the state association applies for and receives approval every year to host the tournaments.   The rules of the tournaments are submitted for approval before play can begin.

The state uses a Tournament Eligiblility Affidavit, similar to the one used by Little League International, to verify the age and residence of every player.  

The Tournament is broken down into 3 sections:  District, Section and State.  

  1. District:  Each district advances 2 teams to the Section. 
  2. Section:  There are 3 sections in the state: NW (districts 1, 2, 3,4); NE (districts 6, 7, 10) and S (districts 5, 8, 9).   The winner of each section advances to the state tournament.
  3. State:  The State Tournament is hosted by Warner Robins American Little League and Southeastern Region.  The tournament is held in June, usually over Father's Day weekend.  Saturday games are played at the Warner Robins American complex and the Sunday Championships are played on the SE Region's Tournament Field.
