Rule changes for the upcoming 2017 season

Beginning with the 2017 season, the following changes will be implemented for establishing residency and school attendance eligibility:

• A school issued report card or performance record will no longer be accepted to establish school attendance.

• Also, 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, 2016 (previous year) and February 1, 2017 (current year)

Check with your local League for more information. 

BACKGROUND CHECKS

Also for the coming season, Little League's official regulations have been revised to state that all leagues in the United States are required to conduct background checks that utilize the First Advantage Screening Solutions program provided by Little League International, or another provider that is comparable to First Advantage in accessing background check records for sex offender registry data and criminal records.

For those leagues that have satisfied this regulation in past seasons by utilizing First Advantage, there are not additional expectations, since the First Advantage background check currently meets that standard.
