News and Announcements

In an effort to accommodate Little Leaguers® playing with their classmates, and ease the burden on parents and guardians, Little League® recently 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 will 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.

 In order to facilitate the change, Little League has recently created an official Little League school enrollment form. This form can be utilized by players that attend school within a league's boundary but would prefer not to provide a school performance record or school registration record in order to enroll in a league for participation. For further clarification on the new residency requirements, please view the video.
