Little League Rule Change (initiated last year):

  • Residency and School Attendance Eligibility (Section II) - In an effort to accomodate for Little Leaguers to play with their classmates, and ease the burden on parents and guardians, Little League has amended its residency requirements to allow children to play in the local league whose boundaries where they attend school is located.  To verify enrollment, parents need to bring an official school document, such as a report card or school enrollment form, confirming enrollment in the school for the current academic year, dated before October 1, 2013. Read the full text of the new rule here.  If your child does not live in NPLL district but attends one of the many schools that are located within the district, they would now be considered "in district" with Northwood-Plainwell Little League (with the appropriate documentation support).

Medical Release Form & Concussion Waiver Form

  • Medical Release Forms and Concussion Waiver forms (as well as the concussion literature) has been placed on the "NPLL Documents" tab to the left.
