Winter: Send in Your Charter Now!
By this time, every local Little League should have received the 2012 charter application from Little League International. It is very important to the operations of the local league to submit the charter application to Little League International.
Local Little League programs are protected by local league insurance. By submitting the charter application and Insurance Enrollment form with the necessary premium prior, it ensures that the league does not have a break in insurance coverage. It is important to note that without proper insurance coverage in effect, the league and its officials will not be properly covered for (any) registration or other covered league activities.
If necessary, team number adjustments can be made in writing using a charter/insurance change application available at www.LittleLeague.org after registrations are complete.
League supplies are very important to the operation of a local league. By submitting the charter application, the league will receive all of its supplies early. This may allow managers/coaches to have a copy of the 2012 rule book prior to the playing season.
For any questions about the charter application, please contact Little League International.
