Are there residency requirements to play for WHLL?

Yes, to play in baseball, players must reside or attend school within our league boundary.  Consult the Little League Boundary Map for specifics.  If you live outside of our boundaries, you must obtain a waiver to play in our league for any post-season (All-Stars) play.  When you register you will be asked questions about residency and directed to the process of obtaining a waiver if necessary.

How are the number of teams per division determined?

The number of teams is determined by the amount of players registered to play in that division.

What are the different divisions? Are they by age or talent?

Players are selected to different divisions based on age which is determined by Little League International. Below is a breakdown of the divisions and age requirements for the 2022 Spring season:

This is what we refer to as “Player Age” https://www.littleleague.org/downloads/2021-baseball-age-chart/

 How do evaluations and the draft work?

Players are evaluated by age. Evaluations are conducted by the managers, coaches and board members. Players are evaluated in 4 areas fielding, throwing, pitching and hitting. A draft occurs after evaluations by the managers of each division (AA – Majors) and is monitored by Board Members. If a child is not able to attend tryouts and be evaluated, they must be blind drafted.

Can a child be promoted/demoted outside their age required division?

A child can be promoted 1 division as long as it is approved by the League President and the managers conducting the evaluations agree the child can be successful at a higher division and is also not a safety concern. That child must be evaluated in BOTH divisions. In regards to playing a child down a division (demoting), this also must be approved by the League President. Along with the President’s approval that player must go through both their registered division evaluation and the division below. Once he is evaluated by managers in both divisions those managers will present their evaluations to the League President to make a determination on that child’s playing status.

How often and what days are practices?

Practices are determined and are dependent on field availability. We do their best to schedule practices with the coaches to determine times that work for everyone. While we have no way of knowing what days/times practices will be held in advance, teams usually have two practice nights each week.

Will we have to travel for games?

All of our games are played either at our home field or the surrounding local leagues. 

 

What is the Volunteer Commitment?

*New in 2022** All registered players families are expected to support in some capacity our fully self funded, 100% parent volunteer league. Participating in helping with tasks that support your child's league only helps us remain able to offer a great baseball experience for everyone. All families are asked to commit to helping a minimum of at least 4 hours throughout the season. We always need scorekeepers, field maintenance, help with field raking and game prep, coaching, concession stand coverage, complex clean up, Umpiring, trash receptacles emptied, or maybe you have a skill that could be used to support our facilities in another way. We are a private park and we do not receive any county, state, or federal funding or assistance. There is no one profiting from of our league but our children's memories. Our volunteers contribute their time so our kids and yours have a safe and fun place to play baseball!


Who can I contact if I have questions or concerns?
