Tournament Information

Little League Tournament meeting — Sunday June 16th   6:00pm

Please make sure Team Managers attend as well as Game directors. The first part of the meeting will be to review Tournament affidavits.

Starting with the 2023 season, completion of the Little League Diamond Leader Program will be required for any coach and/or manager to be eligible to participate at any level of the Little League International Tournament. Upon completion of the program, volunteers will need to print their completion certificate and retail with Team documentation.

We will review tournament paperwork and schedules. Remember that a complete and accurate affidavit along with all appropriate documents (original birth certificate, school or residency docs, medical release, etc.) will be required before it will be approved.

Please refer to the following link for detailed Tournament information including rules, guidelines, eligibility, etc… Included in the links on the Tournament resources page are Tournament play rules, FAQ for many of the common questions, Mandatory play info, Affidavit, Medical release forms, affidavit presentation, etc. 

NOTE: For returning players, you can use the approved Player Verification form AND  (School enrollment form OR Residency proofs) from a previous year. No need for birth certificate or new residency proofs IF you retained these docs for players from a prior years tournament.
