League Bulletin Board: News & Notes for the Quorum
June 2015 Edition
Little League® International Tournament Verification: Pat Wilson, Vice President of Operations and Program Development for Little League Baseball® and Little League Softball®, joined Nick Caringi, Little League’s Senior Director of Operations and Education, for a video presentation that featured a clarification discussion on how the Tournament Verification form is to be completed. Also addressed in the video is school enrollment and how it impacts tournament eligibility.
Tournament Host: It is important to confirm that all leagues hosting tournament games at the section level and above must have an approved ASAP Plan for the current season. If you’re hosting a tournament, and are unsure of your ASAP status, please confirm that your plan has been approved for the current season.
Tournament Enrollment: It is important to confirm that all leagues entered into a District Tournament have enrolled in tournament play on the Little League Data Center. All leagues that have not enrolled in tournament play are not eligible to participate in any level of the Little League International Tournament.
Tournament Toolkit: For all of your updated Tournament Resources visit the Little League International Tournament Toolkit website. Some of the resources you will find include updated tournament rules, baseball and softball Affidavits, player verification requirements and a tournament FAQ.
Media Contracts for Coverage of Little League® Games: If your league is contacted by a media outlet (terrestrial radio, television or Internet) expressing its interest in providing coverage of tournament games played at your facility, Little League has a series of tournament-specific contracts that are to be used to outline the agreement. These media contracts first must be requested or downloaded by the host league’s President or the Tournament Director.
