From there, you can click on a link and visit their individual website.
  
Please CLICK "ADAPTIVE BASEBALL" to learn about Little League's unique Challenger Division, our co-ed program for youth ages 4-22 (or completion of their high school equivalent program) - for those who are "differently abled"
   
"Little League - the entire program from the local league through international programs - does not limit participation in its activities on the basis of disability, race, creed, color, national origin, gender, sexual preference or religious preference, and will not turn any child away for lack of or limited funds.    
*   Oregon District 9   *
Currently serves families (youth ages 4 through 18) across Lane and north Douglas Counties in Tee-Ball, Minors, Majors, Juniors, and Seniors in Baseball and Softball
and Challenger Division
   
We're a 100% Volunteer, Non-Profit program ...
  
"Post-Season" activities ...  
After a full season of "Every - Kid  - Plays" in your local Little League, players ages 9 through 18 have an opportunity toward election to a much more competitive segment - Tournament/All Star Teams - "Icing On The Cake" for approximately 5% of the regular season kids in any given league.  The number of teams (specific to certain ages) that can enter these tournaments is structured, thus limiting the number of potential participants.  Check with us or your local league for additional information and playing opportunities!

Oregon State Law on Concussions

With the Oregon State Law on concussions, we need to have the following happen within the district & the leagues: 
  • District staff, league board members, league managers, coaches & umpires must take the CDC course on-line or in person - obtain the certificate & boards need to keep the certificate on file. I will keep all District staff on file.
  • Parents & players 12 years old & up: Leagues need to make them aware of this law & at least have them sign off on a paper stating this - along with all 12 year olds & above.
  • If at least one manager, coach, umpire or parent does not do this - remember this is an Oregon State Law & you & your board could be liable if something happens. LL insurance will not cover you.

Thanks! 

Debbie
