Little League has been offering the Big League feel to children’s sports since its founding in 1939 by Carl Stotz. Originally Little League was just baseball for boys, then expanded its reach into softball in 1974. In todays Little League, you can see both boys and girls playing either baseball or softball, on coed or single sex teams. If your child is interested in joining a Little League team, there are a few important things you will need to know about registration.
Being prepared for Little League registration is important to make sure the day goes as smoothly as possible and to make sure your child makes the team they like. No one enjoys a stressful registration process! You will need to be able to provide proof of where your child lives, or where they attend school, and a proof of age. What information you need to bring may also depend on whether you are registering where your child lives or where they go to school, as they may not always be the same area. This may mean you need to bring school records to show proof of where your child attends school.
When registering where your child, you must have 3 or more of the following current documents (dated within the last 12 months) to provide acceptable proof of identity are:
• Valid drivers license
• School Records
• Federal or State Records (Birth Certificate)
• Utility billsFinancial records
• Medical records
• Military records
• Vehicle records
• Employment records
• Tenant or homeowners records
• Municipal records
• Child support records
• Welfare/Childcare records
Remember, if you are registering your child based on their school location, you MUST have school records with you including a report card or enrollment form. You must also have a proof of age document to register for both in town and by school.
