*T-Ball: T-Ball is a team sport for younger kids, typically ages 4-5 years old. It is a fun setting where kids can start to develop their baseball skills and get familiar with the game in a more simplified setting.

The game is modified from baseball in that the ball is batted from a tee of adjustable height rather than being pitched. We focus less on the outcome of the game and more on the actual process of the game, learning the basics in a fun and enjoyable setting. For instance; how do you hold and swing a bat? Which way do you run after you hit the ball? Why and how do you use a baseball glove? And of course how and where do you throw this ball? Most importantly we focus on enjoying this wonderful game of baseball!

*Machine Pitch: The Machine Pitch division is typically for kids league ages 6,7 and some 8-year-olds*. This is when our young players start hitting moving balls. The ball is "pitched" from a spring loaded machine that is ran by one of the coaches. The hitting teams coach pitches to their team. 

At this age level we do start keeping score. Scores and standings are kept and will be used for the end of the season tournament. Keep in mind that our primary focus is learning the game, enjoying the game and developing the players skills.
*6-year-olds and up must go to try outs to be evaluated with their age group so they can be safely placed based in the best division that suits their skill and ability.

*Minors: The Minors Division is our semi competitive kid pitch division. Players must be at least 8 years old and a maximum of 12 years old. All players must attend the scheduled "try-outs" to be eligible for the draft. The minors division coaches and board members evaluate each players skills and abilities at try-outs, this information is then used during the draft to safely and fairly form teams.                      

Game scores and standings are kept and will be used to seed the teams for the end of season tournament. They are also used to help select possible players for the end of the year all-star team, if the player is league eligible.

*Majors: The Majors Division is a more competitive kid pitch division. Players must be at least 10 years old to qualify for majors. All players must attend the scheduled try-outs to be eligible for the draft (unless they played in the Majors division the previous year.) The majors division coaches and board members evaluate each players skills and abilities at try-outs, this information is then used during the draft to safely and fairly form teams. There are LIMITED ROSTER SPOTS on the major team.

Game scores and standings are kept and will be used to seed the teams for the end of the season tournament. They are also used to help select possible players for the end of the year all star team, if the player is league eligible.


PARENTS WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We cannot stress enough the need for volunteer help. Our baseball program is run completely by volunteers. Without the volunteer hours from you, the parents, your kids would not have a league to play in.

At each game parents are expected to help with certain duties. The coaches are volunteering their time to coach your sons and daughters, so we will need everyone else to assist in other ways. 

Some of these things include:
COACHING
Keeping the score book during a game
Running the score board
Dragging and chalking the fields before/after the game 
Placing/removing bases before/after the game. 
WORKING IN THE CONCESSION STAND!!! - This is a requirement. Every parent will get scheduled at least 1 shift per child in the league. This is how we keep our league going!

Please understand that it takes all of us to working together to keep everything running smoothly. VOLUNTEERING IS A MUST! We look forward to a wonderful 2021 season with all of you!

Residency/Eligibility Requirements

RESIDENCY AND SCHOOL ATTENDANCE ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

 
Each local Little League determines the actual geographic boundaries of the area from within which it shall select players. These boundaries must be described in detail and shown on a map and dated when making application for a Little League charter. Players will be eligible to play with that league only if they reside or the physical location of the school where they attend classes is within the boundaries provided to and approved by Little League Baseball, Incorporated. NOTE: Players who established “residence” or “school attendance” for regular season and/or tournament in a prior season using the Tournament Player Verification form, and can produce the form with proper proofs and signatures, will NOT need to complete a new Tournament Player Verification form.

I. A PLAYER WILL BE DEEMED TO RESIDE WITHIN THE LEAGUE BOUNDARIES IF:

A. His/her parents are living together and are residing within such league boundaries, OR;

B. Either of the player’s parents (or his/her court-appointed legal guardian) reside within such boundaries.

It is unacceptable if a parent moves into a league’s boundaries for the purpose of qualifying for tournament play. As detailed later in these rules, the penalty for violation of this rule may, in Little League Baseball, Incorporated’s discretion, result in the disqualification of a player, team or entire league from regular season and/or tournament play. “Residence,” “reside,” and “residing” refers to a place of bona fide continuous habitation. A place of residence once established shall not be considered changed unless the parents, parent, or guardian makes a bona fide change of residence. Residence shall be established and supported by documents containing the full residence which includes parent(s) or guardian(s) name, street address, city, state, and zip code information, dated or in force between February 1, 2018 (previous year) and February 1, 2019. (current year), from one or more documents from each of the three Groups outlined below:


GROUP ONE
1. Driver’s License
2. School records
3. Vehicle records
(i.e.,registration, lease, etc.)
4. Employment records
5. Insurance documents


GROUP TWO
1. Welfare/child care records
2. Federal records
(i.e. Federal Tax, Social Security, etc.)
3. State records
4. Local (municipal) records
5. Support payment records
6. Homeowner or tenant records
7. Military records


GROUP THREE
1. Voter’s Registration
2. Utility bills
(i.e., gas, electric, water/ sewer, phone,
mobile phone, heating, waste disposal)
3. Financial records
(i.e. loan, credit, investments, etc.)
4. Medical records
5. Internet, cable, or satellite records

NOTE: Example – Three documents from the same Group (utility bill, cable bill, and bank statement) constitute only ONE document. Any documents submitted as proof of residence must demonstrate bona fide continuous habitation as determined by Little League Baseball, Incorporated in its sole discretion.

II. A PLAYER WILL BE DEEMED TO ATTEND SCHOOL IN THE BOUNDARIES IF:

A. The physical location of the school where he/she attends classes is within the boundaries established by the local league. NOTE: This excludes home schools, cyber schools, sports-related schools, sports academies, preschools, or after school where a student participates outside of the primary school the player is enrolled.

“School attendance” refers to the (place) physical location the player in question attends school during the traditional academic year. Once established, a location of school attendance shall not be considered changed unless the child is enrolled and attends another school or is no longer enrolled in or attending the previous school.

School attendance shall be established and supported by a document indicating enrollment for the current academic year, dated prior to October 1, 2018 , and with the physical location of the school, from ONE of the following categories to determine school attendance by such player:

1. Official/Certified school enrollment record dated prior to October 1, 2018

2. A Little League-issued school attendance form completed by the principal, assistant principal, or administrator authorized to sign on behalf of the school.

It is required that the league obtain some proof of residence or school attendance within the league’s boundaries at the time the player registers. Players and their parents/guardians are advised that a false statement of residence or school attendance may lead to ineligibility to play Little League Baseball or Softball. Under NO circumstances does ANY person have the authority to grant a waiver that allows a child to play in a local Little League program IN ANY DIVISION, when that child does not qualify under these eligibility requirements. Any league who accepts any player outside of its boundaries and fails to properly document compliance with the “Residence and/or School Attendance Player Eligibility Requirement” or obtain a waiver through the Charter Committee may result in the disqualification of a player, team, or entire league from regular season and/or tournament play.

If the claim for residency or school attendance is challenged, the above materials must be submitted to Little League Baseball, Incorporated, with an affidavit of residency or school attendance from the parent(s) or guardian(s). Little League Baseball, Incorporated shall have the right to request additional documentation in support of the claim of residency or school attendance. The parent(s) or legal guardian(s) will be required to provide said documentation to obtain eligibility. Little League Baseball, Incorporated shall decide the issue in its sole discretion, and that decision will be final and binding. Residency or school documents must illustrate that the residence or school attendance (as defined above) was inside the league’s boundaries throughout the regular season (as of June 15 of the year in question). 

In the case of a Regulation II(d) Waiver Form, or a Regulation IV(h) Waiver Form, the proof of residence for the FORMER residence of the parent(s)/guardian(s) or former school that was within the current league’s boundaries must be obtained. This proof of residence for the former residence or former school attendance must be supported by the same documentation as noted above.
