Spring 2017 Online Player Registration is now re-opened!
February 23, 2017 – 09:00 AM
We are pleased to announce that we have re-opened online player registrations effective today, Thursday, February 23rd, for a limited time, through Sunday, February 26th at 11:59PM, when we need to close registration down again to prepare for an conduct player drafts next week. We STRONGLY ENCOURAGE you to register your child during this available window of time to ensure s/he gets one of the remaining roster spots in an eligible league and is added to the list of players eligible to be drafted during the player drafts next week.
Please understand that roster spaces are limited in all leagues, some more than others. The UMLL Board had to establish a set number of teams and players per league, and then appoint managers to those teams so we can move forward with our league season. So, again, we STRONGLY ENCOURAGE you to register your child(ren) ASAP to ensure they are eligible to play this season.
If you are attempting to register your child to a given league, and are unsuccessful, that likely means that we have reached roster limits for that league. Under that scenario, please contact UMLL at registration@UMLL.net for further information, including to add your child's name to a waiting list in the event roster limits are expanded or registered players withdraw at a later date. We want to do everything we can to ensure all interested players have a chance to play this season.
Again, if you are facing financial challenges please do not allow that to hinder you from registering your child(ren). Register online NOW, and choose the 'Pay Offline' option at Checkout, and then contact us at registration@UMLL.net to work out payment arrangements. Regarding registration fees, you should be advised that we have instituted a $25 per family (NOT per player) late fee for registrations received going forward.
If you have any questions regarding registration, please do not hesitate to contact an UMLL Board member or via registration@UMLL.net.

Little League Adopts USA Baseball's New Bat Standard Starting in 2018
April 12, 2016
With the Little League® International Board of Directors formally adopting USA Baseball’s new standard for bat performance testing, Little League International fully supports this program. For more than seventy-five years, Little League has used improvements in science, engineering, and technology to take the sport of baseball to higher levels. By utilizing the most current advancements available, manufacturers can now develop bats with a wood-like performance, which is important for the long-term success of the game. Developed by a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts, Little League Baseball® has decided to adopt the new bat standard for mandated use effective January 1, 2018. All national members of USA Baseball, including Little League, are encouraged to adopt this new standard. Little League-approved bats can be used through December 31, 2017, and our current bat regulations will be in effect until then. That includes the moratorium prohibiting the use of all 2 ¼ inch barrel baseball bats constructed with composite material in the barrel, unless approved. Visit LittleLeague.org for detailed information. Little League looks forward to working with USA Baseball, and will begin educating our local leagues, and the parents of our 2.1 million baseball players, preparing them for the important change coming in 2018.
Sports Concussion Awareness
March 25, 2016
UMLL is providing the following link -- http://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/index.html -- to important information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website to help keep our volunteers, including Directors, coaches, umpires, and parents, informed of how to detect and respond to the signs of a concussion in our players.
The goal of the HEADS UP Concussion in Youth Sports initiative is to help ensure the health and safety of young athletes by offering information about concussions to coaches, parents, and athletes involved in youth sports. The HEADS UP initiative provides important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion.
Embedded within the HEADS UP to Youth Sports program is the same free concussion training program that we are requiring our league directors, managers, coaches, and umpires to complete this pre-season. As parents of our players, we encourage you to also complete the training course, as well, to ensure all parties who interact with UMLL's players are best prepared to protect our kids.
Important Information about Changes to 2016 Baseball League Determination
January 5, 2016
In 2014, Little League Baseball Inc. District Administrators initially voted to move the baseball league age determination date from April 30th to December 31st, effective with the 2018 season. That change was amended by District Administrators and the Little League International Board of Directors in August 2015, moving the date from December 31st to August 31st. Effective November 2015, the implementation plan was again amended, grandfathering the four-months of children born between May 1st and August 31, 2005 as 12-year-olds for the 2018 season.
Recently, the UMLL Board of Directors elected to adopt these changes to the Baseball League Age Determination effective with the upcoming 2016 season. These baseball age determination dates will apply to all levels of play at UMLL -- in-house, travel, and tournament.
Please click on the enclosed link to Little League Baseball Inc. webpage for additional information on these recent changes to the Baseball League Age Determination that will impact the upcoming Spring 2016 Baseball season and forward.
