Frequently Asked Questions

Q: My child is interested in playing baseball. How do I register?

A: Little League International requires that you either live or attend school within the TWLL boundaries to play in TWLL. Please check your address from here to see which league you belong.  Once you have confirmed that you are eligible to play in TWLL, please go to "Registration Info," create an account, and register your player in an eligible program.

Q: What programs are available?

A: The regular LL season is in the spring - practices start in February and games start in mid-March and run through May. The registration for the spring season starts mid-October and ends at the end of December. The non-competitive Fall Ball season runs between mid-September through early November. The registration for Fall Ball opens in June. 

Q: How old does my child need to be to play in TWLL?

A: TWLL offers baseball and softball programs for boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 12.  Please check the LL Age Chart (baseball) to determine your child's League Age and refer to division descriptions (baseball) for appropriate level of play.  

Tball, Coach Pitch, Rookie divisions are called the "Clinic Divisions."  Parents can submit "friend request" and "coach request" during registration, as the teams at this level are formed by the player agent based partly on those requests. The teams in A, AA, AAA, and Major divisions are formed by draft, therefore, friends/coach requests will not be considered.

Since Fall Ball is a non-competitive season, the age restrictions are not as strictly enforced. Additionally, friends/coach requests are considered at all levels, when possible. Please contact a player agent if you have questions. 

Q: What equipment do I need to provide for my player?

A: Your registration fee includes an MLB licensed jersey and a hat. Players will need to purchase their own glove, helmet, bat, pants, socks, belt, and cleats. Rubber cleats are required for playing on a dirt field. The team decides on a matching game pants, belt, and socks color, so we recommend you wait to purchase these items until you have discussed this with the team manager/team parent. 

NOTE: Dick's Sporting Goods is a generous sponsor of our league, and will be providing a 20% off discount coupon the weekend following the Cap Night.  Please save your purchases for this period as it will help support our sponsorship arrangement with Dick's. 

Q: What type of bat should I buy for my player?

A: Little League International dictates that all Little League divisions Majors and below must use USABat Standard bats. Little League-league approved baseball bats in 2017 season and earlier are no longer acceptable for us in any Little League game or activity. For more information, please refer to the Bat Information on LL International website.  These changes only affect baseball divisions; softball divisions are not affected. 

Q: Does my player need to attend Player Evaluations Day?

A: If your player is playing in A and above (A, AA, AAA, Majors), they will need to attend one of the Player Evaluations Days. The Player Evaluations Days are typically scheduled over a weekend in mid-January, with a make-up day on the Monday after the Player Evaluation Weekend.  Your player will be assigned to a specific day and time.  Please arrive 15-20 minutes to allow an ample time for check-in and warm up.  Attendance is mandatory for all players registered to play in A and up, as the teams are assigned by draft. 

Q: What skills are evaluated during Player Evaluations?

A: The Players will field fly balls, field ground balls, hit on the field and run the bases. All skills will be performed in front of our managers and coaches. When your player checks in, they will get a bib with a unique number to wear on the front of their shirt. The players will be lined up and move through each skill as a group. 

Q: I have registered my player to play, what happens next?

A: After the team allocations are complete, the players will find out their team assignment at the Cap Night. The Cap Night usually takes place at the end of January. The Cap Night is a fun and exciting TWLL tradition, where the team manager and coaches announce their players and the team meets each other for the first time.  

Q: How do I get involved with TWLL?

A: TWLL families are required to earn volunteer points for each player participating in the league.  These points can be earned by volunteering as a coach, on the Board, in the snack bar, as an umpire, scorekeeper, team parent, at field days, etc.  We strive to offer a variety of volunteer opportunities to our families.  TWLL is a non-profit, volunteer run organization and we rely on volunteers to make the TWLL experience great each season.  There are penalties for failing to meet your volunteer requirements.  If volunteering is not for you, there are buyout options available.  Reach out to our Volunteer Coordinator with any questions.

Q: I have more questions, how can I get them answered?

A: Please send an e-mail to [email protected].
