Parents Guide to Little League®

LL Parents Guide LLU

When parents or legal guardians decide to register a child to play Little League®, it is typically because the child wants to be with friends; or they see Little League as an opportunity for the family to grow its social network within the community.

Once a child becomes a Little Leaguer®, and a family begins supporting the player’s activities, it becomes apparent that Little League goes well beyond the circle of the team.

The Parents Guide to Little League offers a quick reference to specific aspects of the program, and was developed to help families become more familiar with the terms and operation of the local league. It also features access to “The Basics,” a free video resource focused on the fundamentals of the game, Presented by DICK’S Sporting Goods.

To help those parents and coaches who may be new to the program, or even to the game of baseball and softball completely, Little League International has launched a new program called “The Basics,” presented by DICK’S Sporting Goods. The Basics shares the very fundamentals of the game, from learning how to run the bases and throw a ball to understanding the basic language of the Little League program, all at the convenience of your fingertips.
