WELCOME TO West Side Little League’s SPRING 2023 SEASON!

The spring 2023 season will start in late March or early April, and end on Sunday June 11th or the 18th. Your child’s coach will contact you in mid-March with team assignment and exact schedule.

REGISTRATION IS ON-LINE ONLY. The fee must be paid by credit or debit card when you register.  New users must create an account, but if your child previously played in the league, registering will be as easy as 1-2-3. Simply enter your email address and password to login. All your registration info is still there. Edit any fields that need to be updated. Pay and you are done.
 
IMPORTANT! REGISTER RIGHT AWAY or else your child MAY NOT BE PLACED! We fill up early and, in the past, many children have been disappointed.


Registration is: CLOSED

Registration opens Wednesday, February 1st, at 12 Noon!

BOUNDARIESfor participation in Little League can be found on the Little League website at Little League's League Finder. Players who live outside of these boundaries should contact the Little League in their area for more information. NOTE Exception to this rule is if your child attends school within our catchment area. A letter of proof from the school is required for new players who are claiming this exception. In addition, we accept players from outside our boundaries in our Special Needs Challengers Division and may accept players from outside these boundaries in our Softball divisions. Please contact the League Registrar if you have questions about your eligibility.

Divisions: This spring we will be registering players in Co-Ed Baseball, Girls Softball, and our Challengers Special Needs program.
Please Note When you register your child, you will be offered only the age division as determined by your child’s birthdate, as shown in the list below. But if your child played in a division either above or below their age group in the past, please notify the registrars. We will make any necessary adjustments AFTER registration closes.
Co-ed Baseball (ages 6-18) - 9/1/04-8/31/17. Oldest players must still be in high school and players age 13 and above must meet minimum skill requirements for safety reasons as determined by coaching staff.
Girls Softball (ages 7-18) - 1/1/04-12/31/15. Oldest players must still be in high school and players age 13 and above must meet minimum skill requirements for safety reasons as determined by coaching staff.
Co-ed CHALLENGERS (ages 6 and up) - born between 9/1/99-8/31/17. Contact the League Registrar for details on how to register.

Registration Fee: $275 for registrations between February 1st and March 3rd. $350 for registrations after March 3rd.
Note: once a division is full, whether in February or March, registration for that division will be closed, period.
Fees cover most of the cost of player and coach uniforms, team equipment, field maintenance, umpires, administrative expenses including League insurance costs and LL charter fees, and scholarships.

Waitlists: When a division is filled – and only when it is filled – you will be offered the option of a waitlist. There is a $5 fee which is nonrefundable. If a place opens on one of our teams, you will be notified, and waitlist fees will be credited toward the registration fee.

Scholarship: No child will be denied the opportunity to play because of an inability to pay. If a family is unable to shoulder the entire registration fee, scholarships are available for part or all of the registration fee. When possible, families are asked to pay a portion of the fee. If you are requesting a scholarship, please contact the League Registrar BEFORE registering. The Registrar will get back to you.

Refund Policy: A full refund is given when a registered player withdraws for a valid medical reason with an accompanying doctor’s note.
All other requests for a refund will be denied except under special circumstances as determined by League officials. A $25 processing fee will apply to ALL non-medical refunds. After uniforms have been distributed, no refunds will be given for any reason.

Uniforms & Equipment: In the Spring, the League provides full uniform—jersey, pants, socks, and cap.
All players must have their own mitts (WITH THEIR FULL NAME WRITTEN ON IT) and wear appropriate footwear--sneakers or plastic cleats (NO METAL CLEATS).
All male players ages 9 and up are required to wear an athletic supporter with protective cup.
Do NOT bring your own ball to the field. The League provides balls of appropriate hardness for the different age groups.
