How Are Teams Made?
In our older Divisions, players are assessed for all of their fundamental baseball skills at the beginning of the season at a mass try-out. Teams will then be drafted to ensure an even distribution of skills across all the teams.
Can I Request That My Child Be Placed With A Friend?
While siblings will always be placed on the same team, we cannot guarantee that all requests for friends or neighbours to be put together can be fulfilled. Remember - Each new teammate is an opportunity for a new life-long friend!
What Do I Need to Bring or Supply?
Uniforms, bats and catcher's equipment are provided by the league.
Please send your player to the diamond with their own:
- Batting helmet
- Comfortable running shoes or cleats
- Jock or Jill
- Water bottle
Note that players choosing to bring their own bat must ensure that it has the USA Baseball logo
to meet Little League Standards.
