Vista American Little League: Forms & Info
Parents, keeping kids safe while they play baseball is our #1 priority. VALL has adopted the CDC's HEADS UP Concussion Protocol, requiring all Coaches and Officials to complete training on preventing and recognizing concussion.
Talk with your children and teens about concussion.
Tell them to report their concussion symptoms to you and their coach right away. Some children and teens think concussions aren’t serious or worry that if they report a concussion they will lose their position on the team or look weak. Remind them that it’s better to miss one game than the whole season.

Out of Boundaries Waiver - Regulation II(d) Waiver
Do you live outside of VALL league boundaries but your child attends school in the Vista Unified School District? This waiver allows a player to continue participating if they have legally participated in the league in the past and no longer qualify to participate under residency or school enrollment due to moving, changing schools, or a change in the league’s boundaries. Additionally, it allows the sibling of a player participating in a Little League program as a result of school attendance, to also participate in the same league for the duration of his/her Little League eligibility.

What You Need to Know About the 2018 USA Baseball Bat Rule Changes
First, why the change? Is this just a gimmick by Little League to get us all to buy new bats? In short, no. The purpose of the change is to return bat performance to be more like that of a wooden bat. The new rule applies internationally to Little League, Pony Baseball, Cal Ripken Baseball, AABC, and Dixie Baseball beginning January 1, 2018. Bats marked with the older 1.15BPF stamp, will no longer be legal for play after January 1, 2018.
These guys do a humorous and pretty good job of explaining it:
So, which bats are approved for use in the upcoming Spring season? When buying a new bat, be sure it has the USA Baseball logo. You're going to see a lot of sporting goods stores trying to blow out their old bats with great deals. Please don't buy these. They won't be allowed for use in games or practice. Will there be a grace period where older bats will be allowed? Unfortunately, no.
