In the interest of supporting a level playing field, Baseball Youth has established the DivLevel team self-classification system for travel teams throughout the country. Comprised of three clearly defined divisions, DivLevel is designed to clarify the often-confusing terminology associated with classifying travel teams. In addition, DivLevel will serve as the basis for Baseball Youth’s team ranking system, where teams from all levels of play will be ranked against others throughout the country.
Why should you use DivLevel?
By classifying your team with DivLevel, you are joining the movement to simplify the tournament process, increase opportunities for equal and adequate competition during tournament play, and bring the focus back to the game. Together, we will unify the industry and enhance the overall experience for our players, coaches, and families.
“The team at Baseball Youth believes it is time to take a proactive step in unifying the classification process, which will drastically benefit both travel baseball teams and tourney providers,” said Matt Roberts, President of Baseball Youth. “The DivLevel team classification system is built around the idea of promoting one set of universal division classifications: D1-D2-D3. These three division classifications are extremely easy to explain to parents and players and for coaches to understand as well!”
DivLevel is free to use and easy to navigate. It only takes 1-2 minutes to classify your team for the entire season. If at any point in the season you feel that your team needs to move up or down a level, simply log in and change your classification!
Through your team’s DivLevel classification, you will have the chance to be featured in Baseball Youth Magazine and on Baseball Youth social media channels! In addition to these national exposure opportunities, your team will automatically be in the system for future Baseball Youth team rankings.
What DivLevel classification is your team?
DivLevel allows coaches to choose the most appropriate level for their particular teams based on candid assessments of their teams’ skill levels. DivLevel is made up of 3 very easy-to-understand division levels: Division 1 (D1), Division 2 (D2) or Division 3 (D3) as follows:
- D1 – Major/All-Levels of AAA, Gold, Elite/Advanced, Competitive Nationally and Super-Competitive Regionally
- D2 – Medium AA/High AA, Silver, High-Level Intermediate, Competitive Regionally and Super-Competitive Locally
- D3 – Low AA/All-Levels of A, Bronze, Low-Level Intermediate/Beginner, Competitive Locally
