Frequently Asked Questions

What is the practice & game schedule?
Practices for the Spring season begin in February and games begin in early March and end in June.  Post season play (All-Stars and Tournament of Champions) begins in June.  Games during the week are scheduled for 5:15pm or 7:30pm.  Games occur on Saturday from 9am-7:30pm.  The first half of the season's game schedule is usually available by Opening Day in early March.  Practice schedules are determined by each coach after teams are formed in February.

What is Little League's new policy for league boundaries and schools?
Little League has amended its residency requirements to allow children to play in the local league whose boundaries where they attend school is located.  Simply present a report card or proof of school attendance with your registration documents and your son/daughter will be eligible to play during the regular season and during the All-Stars with us!

Do I have to attend an In-Person Registration day?

For which division should I register my child? In which division will my child play?
A player's division of play is determined by playing age (can be calculated HERE) and playing ability. This is why attending try-outs is important; players that don't attend try-outs must play in the lower division (if their age makes them eligible for more than one) for safety purposes.  

What determines the team on which my child will be placed?
TBall players are assigned randomly. TBall is the only division in which team placement requests can be considered.  In the divisions after TBall, we follow the Little League Operating Manual draft regulations.  Coaches evaluate the players at tryouts and the league facilitates a draft wherein the coaches take turns picking players from the eligible pool.  This ensures the fairest distribution of talent throughout the teams.  Returning major players are the only players who do not have to be re-drafted.  Other policies and details affecting the draft exist, but these are the basics.

Are try-outs mandatory?
Yes, everyone except 4-5 year old must try-out. See our homepage under news or facebook page for more details on the try-outs dates for softball and baseball.

What is the refund policy?
To request a refund, parents must complete the refund request form, available HERE.  All refunds will incur a $10.00 administration fee per player.
Refund requested before Family Day: 100% refund on the division fee and snack bar deposit. The fundraiser charge is non-refundable.
Refund requested before Opening Day: 75% refund on the division fee and snack bar deposit.
Refund requested before April 7: 50% refund on the division fee and snack bar deposit (only if two hours worked).
No refunds will be processed after April 7.
