What are the residency and/or school enrollment requirements for player eligibility?

  • Last Updated: ago

The purpose of league boundaries is to establish and maintain parity in the Little League program. At its core, Little League Baseball and Softball is a community-based program that offers equal opportunity to all children within their given neighborhood or community. Each local league is structured to support children in its community. If a local league has a shortfall of players, there are options, such as combined teams and interleague play with other neighboring leagues, to provide an opportunity for children to enjoy the Little League experience.

Any player wishing to participate in the Little League program may do so by way of either residency or school enrollment to determine their league eligibility. Residency, per Little League Baseball and Softball, is the address of either parent or legal guardian of the participant from between February 1 (previous year) to February 1 (current year). School enrollment is defined by the physical location of the school that the participant attends on or before October 1 of the previous year.
