Laconia Little League (LLL) strives to place each player into a league level and on a team that will provide the player with the best opportunity to learn and to compete. The goals of LLL are to provide a positive environment for learning the sport of baseball and the values of good sportsmanship and team play. Final league placement is determined by the Player Agent based primarily on the end-of-season manager evaluation assessment and Spring evaluations scores. Parental preference is noted only at the Tee Ball and Instructional Coach-Pitch levels when making a placement decision.
