Little League International is committed to supporting our local leagues throughout the tournament process. Local leagues will be able to enroll their tournament teams and utilize the online Affidavit System through the Data Center, as in previous years. As the two divisions of play that are culminating in a World Series tournament, the only divisions the tournament entry fee of $200 will apply is at the Little League Baseball and Little League Softball divisions, which, as always, will be directed to a restricted fund to help offset tournament mileage reimbursement, as well as travel expenses for those teams who have the opportunity to compete at the World Series events.
The other divisions of tournament (8- to 10-Year-Old, 9- to 11-Year-Old, Intermediate Division Baseball, Junior League Baseball, Junior League Softball, Senior League Baseball, and Senior League Softball) that will be concluding at the state level will not be assessed with the tournament entry fee. As there is no tournament entry fee for these divisions of play, teams participating at these divisions are not eligible for tournament mileage reimbursement.
Leagues participating in the Little League International Tournament at all levels will have the support of the Regional offices and Little League International Tournament Committee for protests and tournament issues, as needed.
Additional resources, education, and support will be available throughout May to support league and district volunteers in navigating this year’s tournament administration.
