ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Please note that the registration system will default to the division corresponding with your child’s 2019 league age as defined by Little League International.

To enquire about "playing up" or “playing down,” please note this preference in the comments section of your child’s registration.  Players who play up will need approval from the division commissioner and your child’s previous season’s coach. Please consider carefully if your child is ready to play at the higher level.  Requests to “play down” will also be approved at the discretion of the commissioners in consolation with the child’s previous coach.

Tryouts are required for all spring AAA and Majors players to promote competitive balance between teams.  All in-boundary, age-appropriate boys and girls who try out will be placed on a team regardless of experience or skill level (i.e., no one will be “cut”).  Spring tryouts for AAA and Majors registrants will occur on February 9, 2019 (between 8am and 5pm) at Stoddert Elementary School Gym (4001 Calvert St NW, Washington, DC 20007).  A reminder and specific time slots will go out in early February, but please save that date in the meantime.

For more information on our Intermediate (league age 13), Junior (league ages 14-15) and Senior (league age 16) divisions, please read our Prep/Senior Division page.  Stay tuned for spring 2019 registration information for our Challenger and Girls Softball divisions in the coming weeks.

Again, please be sure to register as soon as possible.  The fees for each division will increase by $35 per player after January 6th and we will close registration for specific divisions on a rolling basis as they reach capacity. Late fees increase to $50 for any registrations after the deadline.
