The Regulation: IV(g):Player, manager and coach data must be supplied to Little League International annually. Leagues may submit information from registration by April 1, 2014. It is highly recommended that data be supplied electronically in approved formats to Little League International via the Little League Data Center.

FAQ:Why is Little League requiring player, manager and coach data so much earlier in the year?
A – By receiving the information earlier in the year, Little League will now have the ability to better connect with volunteers and Little League® families. It will also allow us to distribute timely information and announcements to all local league officials and parents during the current season of play. Volunteers will receive valuable tips and tools via specific newsletters and other resources provided by Little League International. Parents will also have the ability to opt in to receive a special newsletter designed just for parents. It is our hope that this information will help families enhance their Little League experience.
What is the difference between player, manager and coach data vs. team rosters?
A – Player, manager and coach data is actually much easier for a local league to provide. This information does not require a league to hold a draft and assign players to teams before they can submit information to Little League. Local leagues simply have to provide a general list of data to Little League to meet the requirement.
Why is player, manager and coach data part of the ASAP Program?
A –The primary purpose of the ASAP Program is to improve safety within local leagues. By adding this requirement to the ASAP Program, this allows Little League the ability to provide coaches with important safety information and initiatives prior to and during the current playing season.
How do I upload my player, manager and coach data to Little League?
A – Log on to the Little League Data Center. Select the option to Manage Registration Data/Rosters or Managers/Coaches. Select the appropriate option to upload, select the file format and follow the directions for that file format.
