The District 13 Little League tournament gets underway this week.
The four age groups — 9-10, 10-11, 11-12 (majors) and 12-13 (juniors) — that represent Ahwatukee Little League have different schedules.
The majors division gets all of the attention because it has had three teams (one from Ahwatukee and two from Chandler) that advanced all the way to the Little League World Series.
This year’s team gets started on Thursday with the first of five games against Tempe South, Chandler South, Chandler North, Chandler American and Tempe Guadalupe.
After round-robin play is over, the top four advance to the semifinals on July 8 with the title game on July 10.
The winner advances to the state tournament in Peoria, which runs from July 14-25
