Paradise Hills Little League ~ Albuquerque, New Mexico USA: PHLL League Registration

Registration News

 

Registration is Closed

Spring registration is officially closed. All divisions are full. All players wishing to play from here forward will be placed on a waiting list.

A Note From Our League President... 

At this juncture all divisions are full.  The waiting list is established so that should openings occur between now and the beginning of the 2nd week of practice, we can add those players from the waiting list.  Should you request a spot on the waiting list, you're child will be added to the list and will be added to a team that needs a player after this period.  The reason for this time period is that it is not unusual for the league to have players not show up, quit, have injuries , move away or other situations that don’t allow them to play the Spring Season. At that time the league will turn to the waiting list to fill these spots.  I cannot guarantee this will occur but having your name on a waiting list will put you in line in the event this occurs.  Thank you!

Respectfully

Patrick Garcia

PHLL President 

Parents still wishing to have their player put on the waiting list need to Email their request for their child to info@paradisehillsLL.com For baseball/Teeball players, please include parent's names, your best telephone number, the child's name and age he/she will be on April 30, 2014. For Softball please email above info along with player's name and age she was on January 31, 2014. If you are called for an opening please fill out all registration forms and bring in all residency and original birth record documentation and a board member will be able to sign up your kids.

Email is preferred over telephone messages on the league phone. Please make sure you live within our boundaries in order to be eligible to play at PHLL. See boundaries pdf in Forms and Documents section. Each household will need 3 proofs of residency such as drivers license, utility bills, bank statements, voter registration cards etc with the current month stated on bills and statements along with the child's original birth certificate. You may only use one utility bill as one of your proofs per LL Int'l rules. (See below).

  • Tee Ball is for *ages 4, 5 & 6
  • Rookie Machine Pitch Baseball/Softball is for *ages 6, 7, & 8
  • Minor Baseball/Softball is for *ages 9 & 10
  • Major Baseball/Softball is for *ages 11 & 12
  • Junior Baseball is for *ages 13 & 14
  • Junior/Senior Softball is for *ages 13, 14,15 & 16
  • PHLL has not fielded senior baseball in a few years but we encourage teens to register. The league will decide to field a team depending on Senior registration numbers.
* League Age is your players age on April 30th of this year if they play baseball and January 31st of this year if they play softball 
**Crossover exists with 6 year olds for those who've played Teeball one spring season and parents believe their player is ready for the pitching machine and is not a safety risk to him/herself with fielding and catching real baseballs in the Rookie Division.

Registration cost will remain the same as last year at $110 for your 1st child, $90/2nd player, $70/3rd player and 4th player is free. All must reside in same household to receive these discounts. Annual mandatory fundraiser is increased from $50 to $60 per child (even 4th player). The buyout has increased from $25 to $40 per child. World's Finest Chocolate will be offering chocolate bars and restaurant peelers for fundraising this year.

Here's a section from the registration packet for parents to consider.

Each local Little League determines the actual geographic boundaries of the area from within which it shall select players. These boundaries must be described in detail and shown on a map and dated when making application for a Little League charter. Players will be eligible to play with that league only if they reside within the boundaries provided to and approved by Little League Baseball, Incorporated. A player will be deemed to reside within the league boundaries if:

A. His/her parents are living together and are residing within such league boundaries, OR;

B. Either of the player’s parents (or his/her court-appointed legal guardian) reside within such boundaries. It is unacceptable if a parent moves into a league’s boundaries for the purpose of qualifying for tournament play. “Residence,” “reside” and “residing” refers to a place of bona fide continuous habitation. A place of residence once established shall not be considered changed unless the parents, parent or guardian makes a bona fide change of residence.

Residence shall be established and supported by documents from THREE OR MORE of the following categories to determine residency of such parent(s) or guardian. Note: Example – Three Utility bills (three items from No. 10 below) constitute only ONE supporting document for residency. Documents should be dated January 2013 and later. 1. Driver’s License

2. Voter’s Registration

3. School records

4. Welfare/child care records

5. Federal records

6. State records

7. Local (municipal) records

8. Support payment records

9. Homeowner or tenant records

10. Utility bills (i.e., gas, electric, water/sewer, phone, mobile phone, heating, waste disposal)

11. Financial (loan, credit, investments, etc.) records

12. Insurance documents

13. Medical records

14. Military records

15. Internet, cable or satellite records

16. Vehicle records

17. Employment records

It is recommended that the league require some proof of residence within the league’s boundaries at the time the player registers. Players and their parents/guardians are advised that a false statement of residence may lead to ineligibility to play Little League Baseball or Softball. Under NO circumstances does ANY person have the authority to grant a waiver that allows a child to play in a local Little League program IN ANY DIVISION, when that child does not qualify under these residency requirements. If the claim for residency is challenged, three of the above materials must be submitted to Little League Baseball, Incorporated, with an affidavit of residency from the parent(s) or guardian, which shall decide the issue and that decision will final and binding.
