Registration FAQ


When does registration open?

  • Spring registration opens in January and closes in late February or early march - based on when Evaluations take place.

HOW IS LITTLE LEAGUE DIFFERENT?

Little League is a competitive form of baseball dedicated to teaching strong fundamentals at all levels of play.

 Most games and practices take place during the week. There are very few weekend games, leaving time for you to enjoy your families. Minors and Majors divisions play games against other cities in the metro area, where it may require close travel. Most cities we play are very close by. 

We have opportunities for children to play in tournament teams at the end of the year extending the season for those who are selected, and who would like to participate. 

It is important to know that PNHLL is different from park and rec community baseball, as it is a more competitive form of play. Our main focus is to develop strong baseball foundations, while still allowing play for all kids who want to join.

We are run by a board of directors and not by city officials. Though we partner with the cities on field use, we are run independently. 

We are a non-profit organization, and charter of the Official Little League program, run solely by our community of Board Members and volunteers. 

Kids are placed in divisions based on the number of registrations we have and their skill level.  See our divisions faq page for more information. 

 

What is the cost to participate?

For the Spring 2019 season, player registration is:

$160 for ages 6&7

 $210 for ages 8-10

 $225 for  ages 11&12.  

After the posted registration close date, late registration fees increase to $25 per child. Registration will be locked at 9:00 pm CST the day before Evaluations.

Registration costs are subject to change each season to cover rising costs for field rentals, equipment, insurance, umpires, uniforms, and continued investment in our facilities. 100% of the net proceeds are directly invested in the operation and enhancement of our programs. 


How do I register?

Registration is held through our online registration portal.  To register, click on the registration link available on our homepage and Facebook page during open registration.

 

You must have a Sports Engine account to register, sign up and/or sign in using the tools at the top of the page. 


Do you offer scholarships to players?

Yes, thanks to our generous sponsors, we are able to offer partial scholarships utilizing the local school system free lunch program as a guide.  To inquire about obtaining a scholarship, please email us a copy of your child's free or reduced lunch eligibility form. We will respond with other materials and instructions for registration.


What is the refund policy?

There is a non-refundable $25 registration fee with every individual registration.

Understanding that unusual circumstances may result in a player needing to withdraw their registration for a particular season, the following refund policy has been established: 

  • Withdrawals prior to Evaluation Day:  100% refund of registration fees minus  the $25 non-refundable deposit.
  • From Evaluation Day forward, there will be no refunds. As we break down our division based on numbers and immediately draft teams and order uniforms, we are unable to refund registrations fees after evaluations take place. 
  • If Injury or Relocation occurs before regular season play, we will certainly review specific cases should an injury or move result in a player being unable to continue the season. Refund request for these reasons must be submitted for board approval. Refunds will not include the  non-refundable $25 deposit or uniform costs.  

When does registration close?

Registration closes the evening before Evaluations take place. 

Rookies are the only division that can take late registrations, due to the teams being larger and the fact it is beginner-level.

Majors, Minor-A, and Minor-B do not take registrations after Evaluations take place due to the teams being drafted, and the fact there are only a certain number of children per team to give kids a greater opportunity to participate more. However, children can be placed on a wait list in the event that a registered participant drops out before the season begins.
