UNDERSTANDING DOCUMENT VERIFICATION (added 12/3/2014)
Little League baseball requires every participant to prove that they are playing in the League that they are zoned for EVERY year. If the participant lives within Western's boundary, then 3 forms of proof are required to verify this. The easiest 3 documents are a current Driver's License, current vehicle registration and current vehicle insurance. You can place all 3 of these documents on one sheet of paper and keep it with your records in case you move in the future but want to remain with Western Little League. I have included an example of how this can easily be done. Click on the word "example" that is underlined to view it (sorry, but I can't get it to view in landscape view!).
If you choose to use other documents, please remember that ONLY ONE utility bill can be used. That means that you can't submit a bill from NV Energy, Southwest Gas and Las Vegas Valley Water District.
Per the Little League Rule Book on page 16 of the 2014 book: "Residence shall be established and supported by documents, dated or in force between February 1, 2014 (previous year) and February 1, 2015 (current year) from THREE OR MORE of the following categories to determine residency of such parent(s) or guardian:"
Driver's License; Voter's Registration; School records; Welfare/child care records; Federal records; State records; Local (municipal) records; Support payment records; Homeowner or tenant records; Utility bills (i.e., gas, electric, water/sewer, phone, mobile phone, heating, waste disposal); Financial (loan, credit, investments, etc.) records; Insurance documents; Medical records; Military records; Internet, cable or satellite records; vehicle records; Employment records.

Spring 2015 Team Managers
If you would like to be considered to be a Team Manager for the 2015 season, please submit your name and the division you wish to manage to: email@example.com. Please realize that the League President has to nominate the persons they feel will best fill the roles and the current Board of Directors has to approve the nominations. Having been a manager previously with Western Little League is no guarantee that you will end up with a team.

2015 New Year's Resolution for the Little League Parent
Please click on this LINK for a great article!!
RULE 3.09 – Players, managers and coaches of the participating teams shall not address, or mingle with spectators, nor sit in the stands during a game in which they are engaged.
RULE 3.17 – Players and substitutes shall sit on their team’s bench or in the dugout unless participating in the game or preparing to enter the game. No one except eligible players in uniform, a manager and not more than two coaches shall occupy the bench or dugout.
MANAGERS: All players, coaches and the manager are required to be in the dugout or on the field of play during the game. If anyone needs to leave the dugout for a restroom break, the Manager is to notify the home-plate umpire and then ensure that a parent of the child, or a badged adult, escorts the player to and from the restroom. This applies for coaches too, and if the manager needs to go, the home-plate umpire needs to know who the interim manager will be. Any coach or manager who leaves the dugout must come back directly and report back to the home-plate umpire.
PARENTS: Please refrain from talking with your children during the game. You are not permitted to go into the dugout for any reason and the players are not permitted to come out of the dugout to speak with you. Let your team’s manager and coaches handle your child during the game.
LOST AND FOUND
Any items found and turned in will be held in the snack shack between fields 1 and 2. Please stop by to see if your item has been found. Any items not claimed by the end of the current season may be sold at auction with the proceeds going to Western Little League.
