Registration FAQ

What division should I select for my player?
Please see the tee ballbaseball and softball divisions of play for details on the typical ages, skill levels, and rule enforcement at each level.

What is the "league age" of my player?
- For tee ball and baseball, the league age is your player's age on August 31st of the calendar year of that given season (after the season is over).
- For softball, January 1st is the age determination date.

Little League has a helpful league age calculator to easily find your player's league age.

What is required for verifying residency?
Please review section 3 of the Registration page for more information.

What is the League ID on the School Enrollment form?
Our League ID is 4470709

The School Enrollment form doesn't list my player's division. What should I do?
For Tee Ball and Coach pitch please select Tee Ball. For Rookies and Minors please select Minors. For Majors please select LL (Majors). Unfortunately we can't modify the form from Little League International standards.

What do I use if my player is in pre-school in the boundaries OR my player goes to school outside the boundaries but we live in the boundaries?
If you are not able to use the school enrollment form due to one of these situations, you may provide three additional forms to prove residency. The full list can be found on the bottom of the Boundaries Page of our website and include most official residency forms, bills, driver's license etc. 

When I utilized the softball league finder for my address it says: "We're sorry, but we couldn't find a league near you that offers softball"
Since your “home league” doesn’t offer softball, you are eligible for a waiver to play with WSLL. Please proceed with registration and WSLL will process the waiver for you. Note that this applies to softball only as there is not another Little League in the West Seattle area that offers a softball program.

I want my player to play up/down a division - what do I do?
If you want your player to play up or down a division, please register your player according to their age and email [email protected] with your request and copy any previous coaches on your request. Requests will be discussed with the Director of Coaching and previous coach to determine final placement/or assessment requirements for final placement.  

My player wants to play with friends. How do I request that?
You may request a specific coach or specific friends for Tee Ball, Coach Pitch and Rookies (softball only). There is a field in the form during the registration process to include your request. It is unfortunately not guaranteed but we try our best. For Rookies (baseball only), Minors, and Majors, players are drafted after an assessment day and no special requests may be made outside of siblings on the same team (if requested).

If you already registered and didn't include your friend/coach request (Tee Ball, Coach Pitch and Rookies (softball only)), you may edit the form after submission. 

1. Login to your WSLL account
2. Click on 'My Account' from the left-hand menu
3. Click on the pencil icon next to your player's name
4. Edit the friend and coach request fields to include your request
4. Click 'Save'

When will I find out what team my child will play on?
Players and their parents will be directly contacted by their manager by phone or by email in late February/early March. If you don't hear from a manager by March 10, 2023, please contact [email protected].

How much does it cost to play for one player?
Registration fees vary by division and may be found on the Registration Page (fees will be displayed on the page during the open registration period).

If a player decides not to play, is it possible to get a refund?
If a player decides to withdraw, a refund of registration fees minus the service fee is available only up to the time of a player's first game. Parents should contact the [email protected] about the decision not to play and a refund.

I'd like to inquire about a scholarship - who do I reach out to?
