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.
