Come by the league either Tuesday, Jan. 6th from 6:30-8:30 p.m. or Saturday, Jan. 10th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to verify registration, pick-up your fundraiser supplies (if participating), and provide required proofs of residency (first-time players also need a birth certificate).

How to Register for the 2015 Season
Come back to this website in December when the online registration portal is launched.  

1. Register your player's info online (in December) and make your payment online. (Those without access to a computer can come to the league and register online at an electronic kiosk)

2. Attend a registration event (Dec 6th, Jan 6th or Jan 10th) and bring your proofs of residency (see attachment below), your Volunteer Deposit of $100, and first-time players need to bring a birth certificate.

3. While registering online, select whether to participate in the league's annual fundraiser.  Participating in the fundraiser will save you $30 off your registration fee.  Pick up your candy bars during the registration event  (read more below)

How Much Does It Cost?
The cost to the league for a child to play is more than $300 per year yet our registration fees are $130 ($105 for t-ball). The “gap” is made up by our annual fundraiser, the volunteer work of our league parents and board of directors, and business sponsorships.

Here’s how registration fees work:

OPTION 1 - Choose to sell candy bars and pay the league $190 ($165 for t-ball). You will receive a 60-count box of World’s Finest Chocolate, sell it for $1/bar and keep the money. Your out-of-pocket expense is $130 ($105 for t-ball) because you will get $60 back once all the candy bars are sold.

OPTION 2 – Choose not to sell candy bars and “buy out” of the fundraiser for $30. Pay the league $160 ($135 for t-ball). This fulfills your fundraiser obligation.

Registration and fundraiser are due at sign-ups and fundraiser information is subject to change.

Why do we have registration fees and a fundraiser?
The fundraiser request comes straight from Little League International. As a local league, we are asked to host a fundraiser to give our players the opportunity to learn about responsibility, volunteerism, and entrepreneurship. We try to make it simple for our families by being upfront and handling the fundraiser activity and registration all at one time (as mentioned above, families can opt-out from the fundraiser).

Volunteer Deposit
When you attend one of the in-person registration events (Dec 6, Jan 6, or Jan 10) you will provide a check for $100 per player made out to Montalvo Little League. MLL will hold that check and either send it back to you or shred it at the end of the season (based on your preference) if you complete your parent volunteer responsibility. The league cannot operate or exist without each parent’s participation. Those unable to participate can pay for the league to shoulder their volunteer duties. Volunteer duties include two snack bar shifts and one of the following roles … scorekeeper, team parent, coach, field prep. More than 90% of Volunteer Deposit checks are shredded or returned – your check will likely not be deposited if you participate and communicate with your Team Manager. If you fulfill only a portion of your responsibility (for example, miss one snack bar shift, but attend the other shift and complete your field prep duties) a portion of your deposit will be used and you will be refunded the remainder.

Refund Policy 
A 50% refund of the registration fee will be provided if requested prior to the Team Draft event in mid-January, and no refund on registration after the draft takes place. There is no refund on the Fundraiser participation.
