Frequently Asked Questions

What does the practice & game schedule look like?
Practices for the Spring season commence in February, games are scheduled starting on Opening Day in early March and regular season concludes in June. Post season play (All-Stars and Tournament of Champions) begins in June. Games during the week are normally scheduled between 5:00pm and 7:30pm. Games on Saturdays typically occur from 9am to 7:30pm. Practice schedules are determined by each coach after teams are formed in January.

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!

What are AALL's league boundaries?

Please enter your address or your school address on Little League's League Finder to see to which league you belong to.

Can children who do not live within the league's boundaries play for AALL?
Yes, if the child attends school within our boundaries.  If your child doesn't live within our boundaries or attend a school within our boundaries, he/she can only play at our park if they qualify for a Little League waiver. Visit the Types of Waiver page of the Little League website for more information.

When does Registration occur?
Registration for Spring 2024 is open from October 31, 2023 until December 16, 2024.  Early registration discount applies from October 31, 2023 until November 24, 2023. Registration for Fall 2024 is open online on TBA, 2024.

Is my child guaranteed a spot on a team?
Yes! Every child that has completed their registration on time will be placed on a team.

What are the costs associated with playing for AALL?
The registration fees associated with each division are as follows:
T-Ball & Tiny Baseball: $100 / Farm, Minor, and Major Baseball & Softball: $120; Junior Baseball & Softball: $140
In addition, each family is charged a $50 snack bar deposit (refunded upon family's completion of two 2-hour shifts, 4 hours total in snack bar) and is required to participate in the league fundraiser ($50 Carl's Jr Booklets buyout; given out with jersey) and required to donate a 24-pack of 20oz (only) Gatorade.

Are there any discounts available?
Yes! There is a $10 discount for families that participate in early registration.  Also, families registering multiple children receive a $5 discount on every child beginning with the second child. Finally, any family that commits a sponsor for a $300 or more donation will receive one free child registration.

Do I have to attend an In-Person Registration day?
No. If you can submit your registration information, payment, and essential documents (child's original birth certificate, your driver's license, and your utility bill) online, then you do not have to attend an In-Person Registration Day. You can submit your essential documents directly when completing the registration process online.

For which division should I register my child? In which division will my child play?
A player's division of play is determined by Little League 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 ages typically go with each division of play?
  • Players who are league age 4-6 are eligible to be selected to a Tee Ball team.
  • Players who are league age 6-8 that have participated for one regular season in the Tee Ball Division are eligible to be selected to a Tiny League Division (coach pitch or machine pitch) team.
  • Players who are league age 7-9 are eligible to be selected to a Farm League Division team (player pitch, coach pitch, or machine pitch) for the regular season. The local league board of directors may decide the age-cutoffs within this age grouping.
  • Players who are league age 9-11 are eligible to be selected to a Minor League Division team (player pitch, coach pitch, or machine pitch) for the regular season. The local league board of directors may decide the age-cutoffs within this age grouping.
  • Players who are league age 10-12 are eligible to be selected to a Little League (“Major”) Division team for the regular season. The local league board of directors may restrict this division to players who are league age 10-12 or 11-12.
  • Players who are league age 13-15 are eligible to be selected to a Junior League Division team for the regular season. The local league board of directors may decide to have a different age-cutoff for this division, provided it is within the grouping noted. For example, the Junior Division in a local Little League could be limited to players who are league age 13-14.

What if it says "No Programs Available" when I'm registering my child online?
This may occur if your child's division is full and no more positions are available. You may put your child on a waitlist by continuing to register as usual but select Waitlist instead. You will not be charged for this transaction. Once a position becomes available, your payment will be processed and you will be notified. There is no guarantee that a position will become available.


What determines the team on which my child will be placed?
T-Ball players are assigned randomly. T-Ball is the only division in which team placement requests may be considered. In the divisions after T-Ball, 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 olds must try-out. Returning Majors players do not need to try-out. All players must have the appropriate gear to try out, glove, bat, helmet, cleats, cup, etc. and arrive 15 minutes prior to their appointment time for sign-in and warm up.

What is Family Day?

Family Day is the day when players and families find out their team and meet their team manager for the first time to discuss details. Date, time and location is predetermined. If a player and family cannot attend Family Day, their Team Manager/Coach will contact them. If they have not been contacted in 24hrs, families can reach out via email and they will be put in contact. 

What is your 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. All refunds will be in the form of a check or charged back to the original form of payment and may take up to 15 business days before being processed. Refund checks will only be issued to the name of the person that is registered on the Blue Sombrero account. One Refund Request form is required for each 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: 50% refund on the division fee and snack bar deposit. No refunds will be processed on or after Opening Day.
