Frequently Asked Questions

Q:           Can I request practices/games on certain days?


A:            Sorry but the number of teams we have, the number of fields, and trying to put together games between all the various teams
                there is no way we can guarantee certain days.

Q:           What is the schedule like?

A:            Typically there are 2 games/practices a week. One will be on Saturday and the other is typically Mon.-Thurs. Once games start
                there are typically no more practices. (Unless your team schedules them)

Q:           What type of equipment will my child need?


A:            Must haves:
  • Cup (athletic supporter)(Boys only)
  • Glove
  • Cleats (non-metal)
  • Bag to carry everything.

 

 

             Things you probably want to get but could share if needed:

  • Bat (best if he gets one that matches his size and weight. The little guys in tee ball typically get a tee ball specific bat around 17 inches long)- This needs to be a Little League approved bat. For more information on what is Little League approved please check out https://www.littleleague.org/playing-rules/bat-information/
  • NOTE: the Little League does not provide any of these so borrowing would be based on whether of the other teammates will share.
  •  
  • Batting helmet- remember that if you don’t buy your child one of their own they will not be able to borrow just any one they want, they will have to use one that is provided by YCLL. There are few at each field

 

Q:           What happens after my child is signed up?

               

A:            In the weeks following signing up your child (in the time frame close to when the season starts) you will receive emails from
               YCLL.  Please make sure you have verified that the emails are not going in your spam folder. Some divisions (age groups)
                require that the child tryout. If this is the case then you will be notified of the day and time of the tryouts. The calendar on the
                website will also show what times tryouts are. Please check out the website calendar as it has lots of useful information. If your
                child is in one of the younger age divisions that don’t have tryouts (Tee ball, Rookie League, Coach Pitch Softball) then you will
                get an email from the coach and the website that tells you what team and the schedule for practices.

 

Q:           When are sign ups?

                               
A:            For Fall Ball, signups begin in Aug. and will end in early Sept.

               For Spring Ball, signups begin Dec. 1 (each year) and typically they will end the beginning of Feb. However, keep in
               mind that late fees will begin right after the last walk in registration. Also, as it gets closer to the end of registrations
               some of the divisions will fill up. Based on the number of fields, number of volunteers, and how many kids we can place
               on a team we have to limit some groups. It is suggested that you sign your child up early.

 

Q:           What do registration costs cover?

               

 A:            Costs cover the required fees that the league pays to Little League International, Equipment (bases, baseballs, first aid kits,
                 umpire gear, catchers gear, field rakes, field drags, chalk, score board controls, and so much more), and uniforms (jersey, hat, pants,      socks, belt)
                  If you come to the annual meeting held every Aug./Sept. then these costs are shown in detail. YCLL is a non-profit 
                  and run completely by volunteers.

 

Q:           Aren’t there paid coaches, umpires, board members, ect.?

               

A:            NO. No one involved in YCLL is paid. Everyone is volunteers. Please remember that as there problems or things you
               think could be better. We haveless than 15 board members managing a league will around 700 kids. You may
                want to consider volunteering before you complain.

 

Q:           How can I get involved?

               

A:            Sign up to volunteer when you register your child. Also, each Aug/Sept YCLL holds its

               annual board meeting. Come to this meeting and volunteer to hold a board position.

 

Q:           Are there positions on the board for people that don’t know all the rules of baseball/softball?

               

                A:            ABSOLUTELY. You could be treasurer, webmaster, sponsorship chair, secretary. The

biggest                 thing we need is hands to help. The board are the people who handle all the

events. In a typical spring season that means, we are at 6 tryouts (3 regular and 3 make up days), at least 10 division drafts, we run all of pictures days, tournaments, walk in registrations,  we answer all the phone calls, emails, etc. So there is opportunity to help if you can. Even if you can’t be on the board but can volunteer only one of two events, let a board member know. As stated we can always use more hands.
