FAQs

Q: My son/daughter would like to be on the same team as their friend/neighbor, etc. Can you please make this happen?

A: While WPLL would love to be able to place friends and neighbors on the same team at their request, please understand that (i) we get dozens of these requests per season - if they were all honored, teams would end up being enormously lopsided (because numerous requests pertain to an overlap of children) and (ii) WPLL is a 100% volunteer organization, so handling numerous requests of this nature becomes administratively impossible.

Q: My son/daughter either (i) is more advanced that other children his/her age and would like to "play up" or (ii) would like to play with their friend, who is in a different age division. Can you please make this happen?

A: WPLL strictly adheres to the age cutoffs that are required by Little League International. We receive dozens of requests to depart from this each year, but please understand that (i) if we consider one request, we have to consider all (and we are a 100% volunteer organization, so fairly considering all such requests is administratively impossible), (ii) while your child may be more advanced than others at his/her age level, his/her playing with the other children will provide those children with better competition and improve them as players (i.e. your child can help the less-advanced children) and (iii) when it comes to District tournament play, every child will eventually have to revert to their appropriate age level of play.

Q: We registered our son/daughter to play in WPLL, but haven’t heard anything as of yet. When will we hear from someone?

A: WPLL appreciates your patience. The draft and team allocation process takes sometime and is accomplished over a multiple week period. If you have friends who have already heard about their team placement and you haven’t, it’s likely that your draft simply hasn’t taken place yet. We always do our best to inform players of their placement promptly and in due course - and will reach out to you as soon as we are able.

Q: My child’s team isn’t as competitive as I’d like it to be - why are some teams better than others?

A: We appreciate your concern, but please understand that WPLL Spring Baseball/Softball is a developmental program that is open to children of all skill levels. While the WPLL Board and their related faculties do their absolute best to allocate talent evenly each year (and countless volunteer hours go into this process), sometimes children develop at different rates and there are other anomalies, etc., which result in the competition not being perfectly even. While we encourage more competitive players to seek challenge with outside programs, we simultaneously encourage them to continue on with WPLL - District Tournament play (i.e., the path to the Little League World Series) is an enormously rewarding experience.

Q: How do I apply for a partial or full scholarship for the registration fee.

A:Those requesting a partial or full scholarship can do so in writing on the In-Person Registration form. Click here for more information.

Q: I have experienced a problem with a manager, coach or other WPLL official. How can I communicate my concern?

A: Please email us ASAP at [email protected]

Q: When does the Spring League start? How long do they play for?

A: The average WPLL Spring League starts April 1st and runs through the last week in June. We try to end the season on the weekend prior to the end of the school year.

Q: What times, days, and/or fields can I expect my son/daughter to be playing on during the course of the Spring League?
