  • Managers/Coaches
  • Umpires
  • League and District Officials

Tee Ball and Coach Pitch:

  • Team numbers should be reduced, to help limit the number of individuals at practices and games.
  • Volunteers are encouraged to be from the same household as players, as much as possible. Coaches should wear cloth face coverings whenever possible.
  • The focus on these divisions should be on fun and player development.

Little League Challenger Division® and Senior Challenger Division:

  • Buddies should be from the same household as the player whenever possible.
  • Buddies should wear cloth face coverings whenever possible, and frequently use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.
  • Parents/Guardians of players with high risk health concerns should consult a medical professional prior to having their player participate.

Little League® Sandlot Fun Days

  • While activities should be player-led; the adult volunteers overseeing Little League Sandlot Fun Day events should provide a thorough overview of appropriate mitigation efforts and are responsible for ensuring these guidelines are followed.

Pre-/Post-Practice and Game Free Play

  • Unofficial pre- and post-practice or game activities should be discouraged. If they do occur, the activities should have constant adult supervision to assure appropriate social distancing and PPE guidelines are being followed.
