What Parents should know about Little League Boundaries

Since its inception, a primary focus of Little League® has been to provide a healthy activity for kids to enjoy alongside their friends. It was clear back in 1939 that parents preferred that family-and-friend style of activity, where those within the community could gather and interact with each other while watching their children have fun with their friends. That close-knit preference has not diminished in over seven decades, but as communities have changed, so has Little League, providing parents the option to enroll their children in the league where they reside or where they go to school.

One of the key differences that sets Little League apart from many other youth organizations is our boundary regulations, which are specifically designed to maintain that community, hometown spirit. As registrations are underway from coast to coast and beyond, it’s important for parents to better familiarize themselves with these regulations, so they understand exactly what Little League Baseball® and Little League Softball® offer to kids, families, and communities.

Boundary Maps

When a local Little League program is formed, it must submit a league boundary map. The boundary map serves several purposes within the Little League program including maintaining a community environment within the league. Streets and areas are specifically outlined, and no local league boundary can overlap or encroach on another chartered Little League's boundary. This ensures that community feel parents want.

League Options for Players

There are three options for where Little Leaguers can play.

  1. Kids whose primary residence is within the local league’s boundary can play for that hometown league.
  2. Kids can play for the league where their school is located.
  3. Kids from divided homes may choose to play in a league in whose boundaries either parent resides.

A player may not participate in more than one Little League program. There is also a waiver process, where parents can work with local leagues to provide additional opportunities for a child to participate in a league outside of where they live or go to school.

Find My League

Little League has launched a brand new League Finder, where parents can simply enter an address online, and our database will find the league that the address resides in. Visit LittleLeague.org/LeagueFinder to take advantage of this great, new resource.

District

Roughly 10 to 20 leagues in a given area usually comprise a district. The District Administrator is an experienced volunteer elected by the constituent leagues to provide leadership to each league, and serve as the liaison between the leagues and the Regional Director. These individuals are great resources for more information on the Little League offerings in your area. The District Administrator also organizes the District Tournament.

While Little League has evolved and expanded considerably since 1939, the one constant that will always remain is the organization’s commitment to strengthening communities while providing an opportunity for kids to play, and have fun with new and old friends.

Little Leaguers' New Years Resolutions

New Year's Resolutions

With 2016 right around the corner, this is the time to start thinking about New Year's Resolutions. Last December, The Parent Connection put together a list of resolutions for Little League® parents. This December, we want to hear from Little Leaguers®!

Your Little Leaguer is invited to share with us three of his or her top baseball or softball resolutions. During 2016, do they resolve to practice more in the backyard, write a baseball/softball journal, have more fun, teach a younger sibling to field a grounder, work on their pitching, help clean up the field, be more spirited in the dugout? Don't just list the resolution. We also want to hear why each resolution is important to him or her. Email your Little Leaguer's resolutions to parents@littleleague.org , and be sure to include his/her name, the local league, your address, and a photo of him or her in a Little League uniform. We will list the top resolutions in the January issue of The Parent Connection. Those that make the list will receive a Todd Frazier Oyo Figurine and a 2015 Little League Baseball World Series Commemorative Pin. Resolutions should be sent using your email address. Deadline is January 4.

Update to Age Determination Chart for 2018 LLB Season

Children Born Between May 1 and August 31, 2005 to be Grandfathered as 12-Year-Olds for 2018 Little League Baseball® Season. Little League International Board of Directors Amends Age Determination Date Implementation Strategy at Fall 2015 Meeting

Dear District Officials,

Since the decision was first made to amend the age determination date for all divisions of Little League Baseball® and the Little League Challenger Division® in April 2014, Little League® International has received much feedback while working with volunteers, parents, and the Little League International Board of Directors.

This input has allowed the Little League International Board of Directors and staff to make important changes to the implementation of a new age determination date for all baseball divisions. Moving the age determination date allows Little League to work toward its goals of becoming a younger organization, provides children more opportunities play with their friends and classmates, and make the Little League Baseball Division truly a 12 and under program.

At its August 2015 meeting, the Little League International Board of Directors amended the age determination date for all divisions of Little League Baseball to move to August 31, starting with the 2018 season.

Effective as of November 13, 2015, a new implementation plan has been established, grandfathering children born between May 1 and August 31, 2005 as 12-year-olds for the 2018 season, using the April 30 age determination date. This four-month group of individuals will begin utilizing the new, August 31 age determination date beginning with the 2019 season.

All other children participating in Little League Baseball will continue to follow the implementation strategy established in August 2015.

More information on the implementation, along with the baseball age charts for the 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 seasons can be found by clicking the header above.
