Help Parents Be Prepared for Player Registration
Whether a parent is new to the player registration process, or needs a refresher, there are some great resources from Little League’s The Parent Connection, that you can share with them beforehand, which can help your Board members and volunteer staff enjoy a smooth registration – including the Parent Guide to Little League Registration, Questions to Ask Before Registration, and Questions to Ask During Registration.

Note that when reviewing residency documentation, make sure the documents are dated, or in effect, between Feb. 1, 2015 and Feb. 1, 2016. If you’re checking documents for school attendance, those must be dated before Oct. 1, 2015. Also, make sure that the parent(s) or guardian(s) provide an original birth certificate or other proof of age document that has been issued by a federal, state or provincial government in the country in which the Little Leaguer is participating, to verify your Little Leaguers’ ages.
