Registration FAQ

Updated Sunday February 19, 2017 by Greenwich Village Little League.

When is registration?


Registration for Spring Ball generally opens in late November and runs until March 1. Registration for the baseball Majors division closes earlier than other divisions, in advance of the tryout, which typically takes place on Super Bowl Sunday. Look for e-mails from the League about registration for other programs throughout the year.

Can I register late?

My child wants to try out for baseball Majors. Should I just register him for Majors even though I don't know if he'll make it into that division?  What happens if he doesn't make it?

If your child plans to try out for Majors, choose that division when registering.  If he tries out and isn't drafted onto a team, then he will automatically be assigned to the Minors division.   Once a player is on Majors, he will always make Majors in subsequent seasons from ages 10-12.  Please note all 12-year-olds who want to play in Majors will be drafted to a Majors team.  

Please note: At this time there are no cuts in softball divisions, even for competitive teams.

Once my child is assigned to a team, what is expected of me and my child?

Please refer to the Parent and Player contracts for specific information regarding expectations of you and your child. For a list of equipment you need to provide for your child, please read the equipment section of the FAQ. Your Team Manager will e-mail you with further information regarding your responsibilities prior to the start of the season.
