2019 Player Registration

All Stockton and Lodi Little Leagues (California District 8 Little Leagues) will be holding player registration events in the next few months (December & January).  The exact dates and times are dependent upon the leagues.  On January 5 & 12, from 10 AM - 1 PM, all District 8 Little Leagues will be on hand for a citywide player registration event at the Janssen-Lagorio Gym on the University of Pacific campus.

Player Eligibility and Residency Requirements

A parent or legal guardian is required to provide a minimum of three documents (one from each of three groups) to establish the residency of the child or proof of school enrollment within the league’s boundaries. Please note that report cards may not be used to verify school enrollment. Residency documents must be dated between February 1 of the previous year and February 1 of the current year. Proof of school enrollment must verify enrollment prior to October 1 of the current school year.  For exact document requirements, please download the Residency and School Attendance Eligibility Requirements document.

Age and Proof of Birthdate Requirements

Little League Baseball: Starting in 2019, all divisions of Little League Baseball® utilize an age determination date of August 31/September 1 where a player’s “league age” is their actual age as of August 31 of the current year. Your child's league age for the upcoming 2019 season will be whatever his/her age is on August 31, 2019.

Little League Softball: All divisions of Little League Softball® utilize the age determination date of December 31/January 1 where a player’s “league age” is their actual age as of December 31 of the previous year. The softball age determination date aligns with USA Softball, the International Softball Federation (ISF), and other youth softball programs throughout the United States.
