DLL is open to all children between the ages of 4 and 14. A player's age is based on the National Little League age chart. The league is open to players who live within the established physical boundaries, subject to adherence to established rules and required parental support. In addition, player candidates must have parental or legal guardian consent. Players from neighboring communities wishing to play in Davis Little League will need to receive a Special Waiver Request signed by the District 64 administrator, the Davis Little League President and the President of the players home league. The special waiver can be found here.
DLL offers seven levels of play, split into two divisions. Players will be placed in the American or National division for their level, based on where they live or attend school in Davis. When there are not enough players to field teams in each division, teams maybe comprised from players throughout Davis. Players age 4-12 play in the age and skill appropriate level.
