Many times after a player is registered within a local Little League® program, the family has questions about what comes next. By using these frequently asked questions, you will be able to better help parents prepare their Little Leaguer® for the upcoming season.
When are players assigned to a team?
Players may be asked to participate in player evaluations, depending on the division. Following player evaluations, the Player Agent will conduct a draft to assign players to a team.
When will I hear what team my child was assigned to?
After the draft, coaches will call or email families to notify them of what team they have been assigned to. They will provide you information about practice times and locations. It is important to note that each coach sets the practice schedule for their team.
I have not been contacted by our team manager, what do I do?
Not all teams begin practice at the same time, so you may not have missed any activity. If you have not been contacted by a specific date, please contact your player agent.
What will my child need to participate?
Your child should be prepared to bring athletic shoes or spikes and a glove to all games and practices. Shoes with metal spikes or cleats are not permitted in all Little League Tee Ball to Major Divisions 12 and under programs.
Tip: Not all parents are familiar with what players will need to participate in Little League. Provide information during the registration process of what the league will provide versus what parents are expected to provide.
How often are practices and games?
You will be provided a practice and game schedule by your team manager.
Tip: Not all parents are familiar with all league facility locations. Provide information during the registration process.
