Interleague Play and Combined Teams

Prepare header 1000

The following updates have been made to the Interleague Play and Combined Teams requirements for the 2020 season only.

Interleague Play

  • Interleague Play forms will not be required for games that take place between leagues within the same district. Forms will still be required for interleague play between leagues located in different districts.
  • Prior to engaging in any interleague play, your league should consult state and local health officials for guidance regarding travel to and from both communities. Interleague play should only take place when it is safe to resume travel between communities.
  • The June 1 deadline for submission of Interleague Play forms has been waived.
  • Assess any of your divisions that are approved for interleague play with other leagues during the regular season:
    • Will the other league be restarted on or before your earliest start dates above?
    • If restart date is later, can you wait for the other leagues?
    • Send new team/field availability to District Staff.

If fields are unavailable, contract neighboring leagues and your District Administrator for help in finding venues to play regular season games.


Combined Teams

  • Any number of leagues from within the same district will be permitted to combine to offer regular season opportunities.
  • League population will not be considered as a part of regular season approval for the 2020 season; however, combinations involving more than 30 players will be subject to additional review prior to approval.
  • Districts may login as leagues in the Data Center and submit Combined Teams applications on behalf of leagues within their district.
  • The June 1 deadline for submission has been waived.
  • Assess any of your divisions utilizing combined teams:
    • Will the other league be restarted on or before your earliest start dates above?
    • If restart date is later due to the guidelines set forth by their national, state/provincial, and local government and health officials in terms of public gatherings and sporting events, can you wait for the other leagues?
    • Contact your District Staff if you have questions about previously approved Interleague Schedules or Combined Teams.
