Registration for the 2021 Spring Season is OPEN!  

Please review the steps below to learn more about this registration and the items needed to complete the process. We have also made a few adjustments for the upcoming 2021 Spring Season due to last year's cancelations, including:

  • Tryouts will be mandatory for players League Age 9 (rather than League Age 8) and older
  •  Minor C will transition to a non-competitive division and teams will not be formed based on the player draft
  •  Player draft will begin in Minor B (rather than Minor C) 

A few other items to note:

  • There will be no in-person Doc Check required the season
  • Registration Fees will not be due until tryouts/mid-February and ALL PLAYERS WILL INITIALLY BE PLACED ON A WAIT LIST
  • Mandatory, per player Fundraising Fee will be waived AND all players will receive a $50 discount on registration fees
  • Registration for the Juniors Division is not yet open as we are working through logistical issues concerning field locations, etc.  If you are interested in playing Juniors this season, please contact the Division VP, Corey Newman at [email protected].

STEP 1. --- BOUNDARY VERIFICATION

STEP 2. --- DOCUMENT VERIFICATION (Doc Check)

MANAGERS & ASST. COACHES!

If you are interested in volunteering as a Manager or Assistant Coach, please indicate this preference during registration within the "Team Staff" area. You will need to make a selection (or decline) before you can move on to the next step. Thanks in advance to all of you fearless leaders for volunteering and stepping up on behalf our kids and making it all possible!

*Managers and Assistant Coaches are subject to an annual background check per Little League Official Rules.

STEP 4. --- Team Volunteers

HVLL is a strictly volunteer-based organization, so each team needs a lot of help during the season. As such, you will be asked about your areas of interest during the registration process. There are plenty of roles to fill. If everyone pitches in a little, no one will have too much to handle. Don't worry if you don't have any experience, we will teach you everything you need to know! 

  • The team MANAGER likes to be in charge. They take the lead, make sure the team runs smoothly and everyone learns a lot, and most importantly has fun.
  • The ASSISTANT COACH prefers to help out. They assist the manager and help with instruction, but don't have to carry all the gear.
*Managers, Assistant Coaches, Team Parents and Umpires are subject to an annual background check per Little League Official Rules.

STEP 5. --- Tryouts and Draft - FAQ

Tryouts for the 2021 Spring Season are tentatively scheduled for February 20-21, 2021.  

  • Who must tryout?
    This year, players who are League Age 9 or older, must tryout/be evaluated in order to be placed on a team.  League Age 8 players who want to be eligible for the Minor B division draft must also participate in a league-sanctioned tryout. At the annual Tryout Event, players are evaluated on their abilities to throw, hit and run.  Please note:  All players will be placed on a team regardless of their performance at tryouts. 
  • What is the draft?
    After tryouts, managers of each division (Minor B and up) participate in a Player Draft Night.  The draft helps the League form balanced teams and ensure that players are selected in divisions with other players of similar ability.  At the draft, managers first draw a random order and then draft their teams in a serpentine fashion.  For example, whomever has the last pick in the first round, will get the first pick in the second round and so forth.  The highest division drafts first (usually Majors) and is followed by the next lower division on the following night.  Any player not selected in a draft is automatically placed in the draft for the next (lower) division on the subsequent night.
  • Can players be protected?
    Players may not be protected by managers, with the exception of their own children. The children of any assistant coaches must be selected during the draft or traded for on draft night.
  • In which division will my player be placed?
    The divisions in which players will be drafted, depends on each individual player. Players with advanced ability may be selected for the highest division that they are eligible to play. For example, a League Age 9 player first becomes eligible during the Minor A draft.  The majority of League Age 9 players will be drafted into Minor B.  However, there might be a small group of players that need more development, remain un-drafted and are then placed in the Farm division. This arrangement gives each child the greatest opportunity to develop during the season.

2021 Spring HVLL Season

Registration for Huntington Valley Little League’s 2021 Spring Season is open to players ages 4-12 who reside or attend school within the HVLL boundary. 

A player's League Age is their age as of August 31, 2021. Placement in the Minor B division and above will be determined based on the results of the Player Draft. 

Please review these guidelines to help with your player's registration:

 - League Ages 4-5Tee-Ball

**IMPORTANT NOTES: 
All 2021 registrations will initially be placed on a Wait List so that the process can be completed without requiring immediate fee payment. Once registration has closed, players will be activated from the wait list and notified via email. You will then need to log into your account to pay your fees as appropriate. All fees must be paid prior to or at tryouts (for players League Age 9-12) and by end of day February 21, 2021 for players League Age 4-8 in order to be placed on a team.

During past seasons, players League Age 8 and older were required to participate in tryouts and included in the player draft for placement in the Minor divisions. Due to the cancelation of last year's seasons, this policy has been modified for 2021. This year, players League Age 9 and older will be required to tryout, as well as any players who are League Age 8 and wish to be considered for the Minor B division.
