Little League provides helmets, bats and balls for all games. Parents should purchase a glove for the player depending on the division they are playing in.
Players are not required to wear cleats however most players will see improved traction when using cleats. Metal cleats are not allowed in lower divisions of Little League.
Parents may purchase bats to use, but all bats used during a Little League game must meet the requirements of the Little League rule book.
Parents should first check the league age of their child using the league age calculator. Next check the descriptions of each Little League division to see the best division for your child.
Although some players can "play up" a division it is recommended to stay within your division. In order for you to "play up" you must attend the player evaluations and be approved for the play up status.
To play in the major divisions of softball and baseball you must attend the player evaluations. Once the player has completed the player evaluations, the major division coaches will then draft players to their teams. Not every player that was evaluated or wanting to play in that division will be drafted. If the player is not drafted, then that player will be placed in the minor division for that season.
Players that are wanting to play up in a division must be approved by the league's player agent.
Players are assigned to teams around the end of February or the first part of March. Practices usually start no later then the middle of March, but weather may delay this. Coaches will contact players as soon as they know the practice schedule.
The league boundary is agreed upon by the surrounding leagues and the Little League District 3 Administrator.
The lines for Woodstock-Edinburg follow the OLD boundary lines established by Shenandoah County Public Schools for the Central Campus. If you are unsure, please contact the league.
