Review of League Boundary Maps:
District Administrators are strongly encouraged to review the league boundary maps as soon as possible. Leagues in your district, with maps that have not been reviewed or have boundary overlaps, will be placed on tournament hold until all issues are resolved.
- Reminder that these are the maps that leagues will need to use for tournament participation so they need to be reviewed as soon as possible.
Little League Regulation IV (g) requires that player, manager, and coach data be supplied to Little League International annually. It is highly-recommended that data be supplied electronically through the Little League Data Center, using approved formats. By uploading the names and contact information for each player, manager, and coach in your league, you are providing Little League International with the accurate information it needs to communicate directly with the players, their families and each of your league’s volunteers throughout the year.
- Remind the leagues that this is a requirement for tournament eligibility.

The 2015-16 Little League® Year in Review is available for District Staff members to view online. This information will NOT be distributed to District Administrators in hard copy form. Included in the Year in Review are descriptions of the organization’s activities on and off the field, including a report on the financial activity, accounting and status from the past year.
A second charter application along with an insurance enrollment form have been mailed to the name and home address of the League President of record at Little League® International to all leagues that had not yet chartered.

Information on Tournament enrollment is expected to be distributed later this month. If a League President or other league officers have changed, and any league has not received its charter application and insurance enrollment form, is asked to contact Bonnie Wheeland, at: bwheeland@LittleLeague.org; or Penny Ulmer, at: pulmer@LittleLeague.org. District Administrators are urged to check the charter status of all their leagues by visiting the Little League Data Center.
- District Administrators should remind their leagues that in order to be eligible for tournament play the league must be charted in an age appropriate divisions for which it wishes to enter tournament teams, no later than June 1, 2017.
