The Pee Wee Division is 13U, meaning players must be 13 or under as of the December 31 following the season. Players move to Pee Wee from 11U Mosquito so most payers will turn 12 during their first year and 13 as second years and be in Grade 6 and 7.
Pee Wee is the first division where full season tiering and travel play begins.
Players may try out for the full season Tsawwassen AA team that offers a more competitive level of play. The AA team will play similar level teams from other associations in the Lower Mainland in spring. This team will then usually remain in AA after a re-tiering for summer ball play
Players not selected to the AA team, or who prefer, will be selected to one of the A teams which offer a more recreational level of play. These A teams will play A teams from other associations in a spring Interlock Division. In some years a summer A team may also be formed.
