Eligibility Waiver Deadline:
All waiver requests (for the league, team, player, manager, and/or coach) of any kind must be processed by the district and respective regional offices, and acted upon by the Little League® International Charter Committee in South Williamsport, Pa., no later than June 1, 2016, and prior to said player participating in the local Little League program.
D.A. Action: Separate waiver requests meant to be submitted prior to the draft or first game of the regular season, from those that could be submitted during the season or prior to tournament play. (Example: Player eligibility waiver requests should be submitted prior to, or during, the registration period.)
D.A. Strategy: Submitting requests past the appropriate time greatly minimizes the likelihood of the request being approved. All submissions should be made with enough time to ensure leagues can provide good customer service to its parents and players.
Player and Coach/Manager Registration Information:
District Administrators and staff members are strongly encouraged to instruct their local leagues to submit regular-season player registration/roster information and coach/manager data LLU through the Little League Data Center in accordance with the ASAP regulation No. 14.
2016 ASAP Information for Hosting Tournaments:
Tournament rules require that the host of a section, division, region, or World Series tournament have an approved A Safety Awareness Program (ASAP) safety plan. ALL safety plans must be submitted with the Qualified Safety Plan Registration form, which is Requirement #15. A league’s safety plan WILL NOT be shown as approved without the form stating who is submitting it, and where the 15 minimum requirements can be found in the league(s) plan. Also, check the Little League Data Center to confirm the leagues that have completed all of the required background checks through the First Advantage background check tool. REMINDER: Little League International strongly recommends that district tournament sites have an approved ASAP plan as well.
D.A. Action: Determine what your district’s policy will be with regard to this item, and communicate this information to all your leagues in a timely fashion.
D.A. Action: Generate an ASAP report and share with all of your leagues in order to promote transparency. This should help your efforts in assigning tournament hosts.
