Assessments and Document Verification Rescheduled

Due to the pending storm and the fields still being closed due to not being dried out yet, we are moving tomorrow's Assessment and Document Verification Day to Saturday, January 28. The schedule remains the same, just moving the date. As a few reminders:

Saturday, January 21 and Saturday, January 28 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am at the Juniors field at MLK park.

Check-list for document verification:

  1. Original or certified copy of birth certificate
  2. Address verification documents: Signed School Eligibility form (if school is in ONLL boundaries) OR 3 address documents handy document checklist
  3. $75 check for snack bar volunteer deposit (one check per player; checks will be returned upon completion of volunteer shift worked in the snack bar)


Saturday, January 21 & Saturday, January 28
Assessments are mandatory for AAA, Majors, Intermediate and Junior Divisions and will be hosted at Martin Luther King Park Juniors Field. Players do not need to attend both assessment days...just pick the Saturday that works best for you! Players must bring their own gear (USA stamped bat, glove, cleats, helmet, etc.) to assessments. The times for the different age groups are as follows:

8 & 9 year olds 9:00 am
10 & 11 year olds 10:00 am
12 - 14 year olds 11:30 am

Arrive 15 minutes prior to your start time to check in and get your badge.

Where are assessments and verification held?
At the Juniors field at MLK park at 4300 Mesa Drive. The Juniors field is located closer to MLK Middle School.

Does my child need to attend assessments?

If your child is playing in upper divisions (AAA, Majors, Intermediate or Juniors), they must attend either of the assessment days in the time slot applicable for their age.

My child has never played baseball before; will they be cut from a team if they don't do well during assessments?

Nope...all registered players will be drafted to a team regardless of performance and assessments! Little League is here to help your child learn, develop and grow!

My child has a conflict both weekends; will they still be able to play on a team?

Yes! All players will be drafted onto a team even if they cannot attend assessments. Please note that those that cannot attend assessments will not be eligible to play All Stars at the end of the season. Also, they will be placed in a division based on their previous year division of play (unless their league age mandates a move up).

My child is ill / has an injury and cannot attend assessments. Does that mean they cannot play in All Stars?
If your child has a medical reason for not being able to attend assessments but wants to play All Stars, please reach out to the Player Agent to request approval due  by the BOD.

We are out of town during document verification day. What do I do?
Great news! Friends and family can also bring your documents for you! (Just be sure you have all the correct documents; if you have any questions on documentation, please email [email protected] to verify ahead of time). Your friend can provide your documents, leave your snack bar deposit check, and pick up your raffle tickets for you.

Which documentation should I form or address residency?

If your child attends school within ONLL boundaries, please use the attached School Enrollment form as it's the easiest form of documentation for you to obtain. Note that a school administrator must sign the form; report cards cannot be accepted. If your child does NOT attend school in our boundaries, then you will need to provide copies of THREE specific and dated address documents. Please be sure to utilize the Residency Eligibility Checklist before attending verification day. (Note: address documents must be dated between February 1, 2022 and February 1, 2023.)

Why do I need to bring my documents if I've uploaded them?
Unfortunately, the website does not have the capability to check and validate uploaded documents, which means a volunteer would need to manually check almost 1,000 documents one document at a time. So to streamline the process, we do quick physical checks in person. Keep in mind Little League International has strict requirements on valid documents, so if they are not complete and accurate at Verification Day, you will need to provide corrected documents before you child can practice so it's important to reference the checklist to make sure you have the correct documents on hand.

If I have to bring them in person, why did I have to upload them in the first place?
Unfortunately, the Little League International does not allow us to disable the upload requirement from the website.

I do not have my child's birth certificate; what do I do?

All players must have an original or certified copy of their birth certificate validated in person in order to play. A picture on your phone will not suffice. Please reach out to the County office where your child was born and request a copy ASAP as it does take a few weeks to receive it.

Can I use a passport in instead of a birth certificate?
No, passports cannot be accepted.

I have a friend who's child wants to play but funds are tight. Is there a way for them to still register?
Yes! T-Mobile has a grant program with Little League International to help families in need. Interested families can apply online. Feel free to reach out to [email protected] with any questions.
