When chartering, each league should take time to review its boundary map to ensure that it is accurate and meets the needs of the league. There are three essential items to complete annually.
Compare Your League’s Map with the Map on File at Your Regional Office
The map on file at your respective Regional Office is the map recognized by Little League® International as your league’s official boundary map. You can request a copy of your league’s map on file by contacting your Regional Office. If there are any discrepancies between what your league is using and what is on file at the Regional Office, you will need to work with the region to reconcile the differences.
Submit a Request for Any Changes Needed
Only the Little League International Charter Committee has the ability to approve changes to a league’s boundary map. There are several reasons that your league may wish to request a change to its boundaries. Some common reasons include:
- The map your league is using differs from your league’s map on file
- New streets or subdivisions in your community are not included on your current map
- There is adjacent area to your current boundaries that is unchartered and your league has the ability to service that area
- Your league is working with an adjacent league to adjust a boundary to improve service
All proposed changes must be submitted through your District Administrator to your Regional Office for review by the Charter Committee. Proposed maps must be signed and dated by your League President and District Administrator.
Publish/Distribute Your League’s Boundary Map
Once your league’s boundary map is set for the upcoming season, you should publish the map on your league’s website and have copies available at all league registration activities. Only players who have a parent who resides within your league’s boundaries or players who attend school within your league’s boundaries are eligible to participate in your league.
