THE PLL JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIPS
It's your turn to become a pro.
The inaugural PLL Jr Championships will bring together hundreds of players in 5th-6th grade and 7th-8th grade (U11 & U13) from all over the country for an immersive PLL experience. For the first time ever, players will train side by side with some of the biggest names in our sport, wearing the PLL's teams across their chest.
The PLL Junior Championships kick off with three educational and immersive training camps. Not only will they be learning from the best; they will also get a chance to interact and hear the stories of how these athletes forged their path.
Following training camps and evaluation, players will be placed into the player pool, where they'll be drafted by PLL Jr teams.
Each PLL Jr team will consist of 21 players and be coached by PLL athletes. All eight teams in each age group will meet in August of 2023 for the inaugural PLL Jr Championships.
The PLL Jr Championships will take place August 4th - 6th at the historic Homewood Field in Baltimore, MD. Players will receive full gear kits and be outfitted by their respective teams before stepping onto the PLL field. The top two teams in each age bracket will advance to the PLL Jr. Championships.
