Over the past couple of years, there has been a lot of discussion about the Little League Baseball® Age Determination Date. This is an important topic to everyone involved in Little League, and Little League has sought input from volunteers, parents, and coaches that has helped guide District Administrators and the Little League International Board of Directors to ultimately change the Age Determination Date for all divisions of Little League Baseball and the Little League Challenger Division® to August 31. Click on the link above to read more about this decision and how it will impact your League starting with the upcoming Baseball season. Click here to view the 2016 Little League Baseball Age Chart.
That time is a valuable commodity to Board members and league officials, so, this year, for the first time, Little League® International has taken tournament enrollment exclusively online. No longer will local leagues be receiving a Tournament Enrollment Form through standard mail.
Melding convenience and technology, if a local league wishes to be part of the 2015 Little League International Tournament it will do so through the Enrollment Form available on the Little League International Tournament Toolkit website. The Tournament Toolkit website provides volunteers with a one-stop online resource for planning and organizing their tournament season.
Located on the 2015 Little League International Chartering and Marketing Toolkit website, the Little League® International Tournament Toolkit provides local leagues with the ability to enroll teams in this year’s postseason, review tournament responsibilities and dates, use the electronic calendar to schedule games, watch tournament-specific video presentations, and better understand tournament rules and regulations.
