An incident that causes any player, manager, coach, umpire or other individual to receive medical attention must be reported to the league Safety Officer. This includes even passive treatment confined to the evaluation of an injury. If there is an injury on the field, Managers are required to fill out an Injury Report form and return it to the Safety Officer within 24 hours.

WSLL Safety Officer:

Erin Kross


West Seattle Little League's goal is to provide our players the opportunity to practice and play baseball and softball in a safe environment. WSLL’s primary concern is the health and safety of all participants. WSLL will follow guidelines from local, state, and federal public health authorities during the 2023 season and will update plans if needed.

If a player or volunteer tests positive for Covid-19, please contact Erin Kross who can help consider plans to return to baseball or softball.

A concussion is a brain injury and all brain injuries are serious. They are caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or by a blow to another part of the body with the force transmitted to the head. They can range from mild to severe and can disrupt the way the brain normally works. Even though most concussions are mild, all concussions are  potentially  serious and may result in complications including prolonged brain damage and death if not recognized and managed properly. In other words, even a 'ding' or a bump on the head can be serious. You can’t see a concussion and most sports concussions occur without loss of consciousness.

Signs and symptoms of concussion may show up right after the injury or can take hours or days to fully appear. If your child reports any symptoms of concussion, or if you notice the symptoms or signs of concussion yourself, seek medical attention right away.

Background Checks

All volunteers having regular contact with players (such as board members, managers, coaches, team parents, umpires, etc.) must submit to a background check per Little League International. Little League International will pay for the background check, resulting in no additional cost to volunteers. To become a WSLL volunteer, update your WSLL profile during the season registration to specify the volunteer position you're interested in. Volunteers will receive an automated email invitation to initiate the background check process.
