REGISTRATION FORMS - EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW AND BRING
Please bring the following with you to registration - All of these forms will be readily available to you at time of registration if needed or forgotten:
1. Player Registration and Medical Release Form- CLICK HERE TO PRINT REGISTRATION FORM. Please bring the original form and 3 additional copies with you to registration.
2. Player Verification Form: CLICK HERE TO PRINT - Please bring the original and 3 copies with you to registration. Little League International requires all leagues to verify league age of all of their players. This form used to be used only for All Stars but they are now using it as a way to track players age without parents needing to bring their child's original BC to registration each year they play. So once this form is approved and signed by the League President and the DA President, you will not be required to bring your child's original Birth Certificate to registration in the future.
3. Original Birth Certificate for the child registering for baseball - ONLY if you did NOT receive a signed Player Verification form in 2014 or 2013. If your child DID receive a signed player verification form in 2014, or 2013, your original BC is NOT required. Docs that are NOT ACCEPTABLE AS SOLE PROOF OF BIRTH: Baptismal Certificate; Certificate of Blessing; Certificate of Dedication; Certificate of Circumcision, etc.; Hospital Certificate; photocopied records. If you are not sure if you received this form, you can confirm at time of registration. The player agent will have a list of those players that received the signed forms.
4. Three (-3-) copies of the original birth certificate.
5. Proof of residence in Norco: Please bring current proofs of residency from 3 separate entities. If you are NOT a resident of Norco please skip and go to #6. Residence shall be established and supported by documents, dated or in force between February 1, 2014 and February 1, 2015, from THREE OR MORE of the following categories to determine residency of such parent(s) or guardian:
1. Driver’s License
2. Voter’s Registration

6. If you are a resident of Norco skip to #7. If you DO NOT LIVE IN NORCO, but your child attends school in Norco CLICK HERE TO PRINT SCHOOL FORM. Little League has updated its residency requirements. All players must live or attend school within Norco Little League's boundaries: In an effort to accommodate for Little Leaguers to play with their classmates, and ease the burden on parents and guardians, Little League has amended its residency requirements to allow children to play in the local league whose boundaries where they attend school is located. To verify enrollment, parents will need to submit the attached form that must be signed by the school's principal. Please bring the original and 3 copies of this form with you to registration.
7. Parent Pledge - ALL parents must complete this form. One form per family is not sufficient. So if your spouse will not be at registration with you, please have him/her complete the form ahead of time and bring it with you to registration. We will need the original and 2 copies of each pledge you provide. CLICK HERE TO PRINT THE PARENT PLEDGE.
8. Volunteer App - If you wish to volunteer with NLL in any capacity (coach, manager, umpire, team mom, safety officer, etc.,) and/or you wish to have voting rights with NLL, you MUST complete this form. Otherwise you will not be allowed to assist the coaches, or be allowed on a NLL field under any circumstances, nor will you be able to vote in any capacity on NLL matters. Please do not worry that this form says 2014. It came directly from NLL International. It will still be accepted. CLICK HERE TO PRINT THE VOLUNTEER FORM. Please bring the original and 1 copy of this form, AND a copy of your current drivers license with you to registration.
NEW LEAGUE AGE IN EFFECT
IF YOUR CHILD WAS BORN AFTER JANUARY 1, 2006, PLEASE REVIEW CHART BELOW FOR NEW LEAGUE AGE BREAKDOWN
NEW YEARS RESOLUTION FOR LITTLE LEAGUE PARENTS
RESOLVE TO SPEND TIME VOLUNTEERING FOR THE LEAGUE: As a volunteer, it is so gratifying knowing that you have done your part to provide Little Leaguers a positive experience that will last their entire lifetimes. We need volunteers in a variety of capacities. Think of your strengths and what you enjoy doing, and offer to assist the league in those areas. If you’re experienced in social media, volunteer to be in charge of your league’s Facebook and Twitter accounts. Become an official scorekeeper or league statistician, and you’ll never have to miss a minute of your children’s games. Be creative and work with your NLL Board to find your niche. Not only will this help the league, but you will also learn more about the full operation of where your child(ren) play Little League.
TO WORK WITH YOUR PLAYER IN THE YARD:
Little League International frequently posts useful and fun Backyard Tips in "The Parent Connect" link, http://www.littleleague.org/learn/newsletters/ParentConnection.htm that you can do with your Little Leaguers to help develop them as a player. Also, their free, online "Coaches Resource Center" has great drills that you can use to help spend quality time with your children and help them develop their skills. http://www.littleleague.org/managersandcoaches.htm
RESOLVE TO ENCOURAGE A HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY.
Between practices, games, and everything in between, it can be hard to find the balance between a busy lifestyle, and a healthy one. Investing a little time in the beginning of the week to prepare and plan meals and snacks can really give the entire a family a nutrition boost. Pre-pack healthy snacks and plan meals in advance that can be frozen and reheated quickly. Not only are you giving your children the necessary building blocks for their body to grow and fuel their active lifestyle but you are also teaching them good eating habits that will last a lifetime. As a family, be sure to eat healthy and exercise regularly. If you’re helping your Little Leaguers in the backyard or volunteering as a coach or manager, be active and do the warm-ups with your players. Little League is an active, healthy outlet for players and parents.
RESOLVE TO BE A BETTER LITTLE LEAGUE PARENT:
We all know them, sometimes they even are us. It’s hard not to get emotionally invested in your children’s games, but remember, Little League is about children having fun with their friends in a safe, healthy environment. Make yourself familiar with the Little League Parent/Volunteer pledge, and share it with other Little League parents.
RESOLVE TO BE THERE FOR YOUR PLAYER:
While you should certainly try to attend every game, let’s face it, it is hard to get to everything, including practices, but being there for your child is much more than sitting in the stands. If you do miss a game or practice, it is important to communicate with your player about their experience. On the car ride home, or on the phone if you can’t be at the game, talk to your child. Ask if it was a fun game and what they learned. Don’t rehash missed plays in the field or strike outs, but focus on the aspects of the game that are enjoyable like being with their friends.
No matter what your New Year’s Resolutions are this year, we hope that 2015 is a wonderful year for you and your family. We look forward to the 2015 Spring Season!
SUNFLOWER SEEDS IN THE SCOREBOOTHS!
Attention all Scorekeepers and Pitch Counters. Thank you so much for volunteering your time keeping record of the game and protecting the arms of those pitchers/catchers. We greatly appreciate it.
However, we ask that you please DO NOT spit sunflower seeds onto the floor of the scorebooths. Please use a cup, empty water/gatorade bottle or the trashcans, but not on the floor or on the table. I know it seems silly to say it but it is happening.
Even though the new and improved scorebooths are not complete, we want to keep them clean.
