Spring Registration 2021 - Questions & Answers

What about doc checks?
Doc checks will be back again IN PERSON this season. According to the rules set forth by Little League International┬«, all players MUST provide proof of age and residency (or of school attendance) in order to be eligible for the draft and/or placement on a team. There are NO EXCEPTIONS to this policy and information must be re-verified each year. This year, the process will take place during the registration and you will be instructed on how to upload your documents. 

Who must tryout?
Tryouts are required for all players League Ages 8-12 and available to League Age 7 players who wish to be eligible for the Minor C draft. Players who are League Ages 7-9 (Minor C), WILL be required to participate in tryouts and drafted to a team.

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 C 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.
