What divisions are offered by East Lane Little League?

REQUIRED VIEWING OF CHILD'S GOVERNMENT-ISSUED BIRTH CERTIFICATE

League Presidents/Player Agents are required to view the ORIGINAL or STATE-CERTIFIED COPY of each child's Government-Issued Birth Certificate prior their being evaluated or placed on a team  - to validate their legal date of birth.  No photocopies; no faxed copies.  

The "Hospital Record" and "Baptismal Records" are not considered valid proof of date of birth.  "Passports" are proof of Citizenship, not considered a proof of birthdate. 

Military Hospital Certificates and Military I.D. Cards for the children are considered legal proof of birthdate. 

The legal documents are used toward verification of date of birth - documents will be returned to you immediately after viewing. 

Of MAJOR importance:  

       Post 9-1-1, The State of California advised their "Abstract of Birth" is not considered a legal document for certification of date of birth.  Based on most recent information out of California, the county where your child's record of birth is on file will, in exchange of receipt of the "Abstract of Birth" return a legal document at no cost.  Please contact the County Clerk's Office of the respective County to confirm how that county is handling this exchange. 


IF YOU NEED TO ORDER A GOVERNMENT-ISSUED BIRTH CERTIFICATE, EITHER CONTACT THE COURTHOUSE OF THE COUNTY WHERE THE CHILD WAS BORN, OR GO TO WWW.VITALREC.COM.  - or at www.littleleague.org and click on the link to 'birth certificates on the directory.  (PAYMENT CAN BE MADE USING A CREDIT CARD; SHIPPING IS VERY PROMPT.)

 ** If, at the end of the season, your child is selected to a post-season All Star Team, an additional 'viewing' of the actual document is required for District Staff, and a photocopy will be retained for reference during the tournaments.  It will only be in the possession of the Manager of your child's team, and leagues are instructed to shred these documents on completion of tournament play.



VERY IMPORTANT REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS & INFORMATION

As  you prepare to register your child, check back on our site for registration dates, times, and locations. 

Little League bases its registration on two primary factors -

  1. the player legally resides or attends school in the chartered boundaries of the specific league  and
  2. the player is eligible due to their age and viewing of proof of birthdate. 
Remember to bring:

* your Child - for uniform shirt sizing or know their size as what is ordered is what they will be wearing during the season

the child's original or state certified copy of a government issued birth certificate - no photocopies; no faxed copies - (The hospital record with the ever-precious footprints, passports, and Baptismal Records, etc. are not valid "proof of birthdate" documents).  Military Hospital Certificates and Military I.D. Cards for the children are considered legal proof of birthdate.  The legal documents are used toward verification of date of birth - documents will be returned to you immediately after viewing.  Additional Note:  The State of California has advised their "Abstract of Birth" is not considered a legal document for certification of date of birth.
IF YOU NEED TO ORDER A GOVERNMENT-ISSUED BIRTH CERTIFICATE, EITHER CONTACT THE COURTHOUSE OF THE COUNTY WHERE THE CHILD WAS BORN, OR GO TO
WWW.VITALCHEK.COM.  - or at www.littleleague.org and click on the link to 'birth certificates on the directory.  (PAYMENT CAN BE MADE USING A CREDIT CARD; SHIPPING IS VERY PROMPT.)

*  and at least three different documents with your current address. (Documents referencing a PO Box must include a reference to a Street Address.) Authorized Proof of Residence documents may include a combination of three of any of the following, but not more than one document from each category.  FOR EASE, we are requesting it be kept simple - with the showing of:
            (1) a Current Driver's License
            (2) a Vehicle Registration
            (3) a Utility bill less than 6 months old or Insurance Document (with the address shown)
                  All three documents must show the same address as will be noted on the registration form, providing the league with proof the child resides within the legal boundaries of THEIR league.

The complete list of eligible "proof of residence" documents includes the following.  ONLY ONE DOCUMENT FROM EACH (GROUP) is allowed.  (2 drivers licenses = 1 proof of residence from group #1; a cell phone bill and a home phone bill = 1 proof of residence from group # 10).  "Envelopes" are not considered  legal proof of residence.  "Checks" are not considered proof of legal residence.  If you use a Post Office Box, documents used MUST also reference the physical street address of the residence.  (Standard 'joke" of reality is that we don't know of anyone that lives in a Post Office Box.)

With the exception of drivers licenses, voter registration, or vehicle registrations, documents are to be no more than 6 mos. old ...
(1) drivers license;
(2) voters registration card,
(3) school record - Not an envelope addressed to the family or child, but an actual school-issued document,

 Little League does not limit participation in its activities on the basis of disability, race, creed, color, national origin, gender, sexual preference or religious preference nor will any league turn a child away for lack of or limited funds.

Little League is an "every child plays program" - (Confidential "sponsorships" available on request).  A league CANNOT require any proof of financial status or require payment in lieu of volunteering.  Parents should consider making a donation 'to the best of their ability' - but all leagues realize economics  and family situations may place limitations on folks.  We cannot or will not penalize a child and their participation based on the ability or lack of ability for parental participation.
