Here's the fine print (literally). A player is deemed to reside or attend school within league boundaries if either parent (or legal guardian) resides there. It is unacceptable for a parent to move into a league’s boundaries for the purpose of their child qualifying for tournament play. "Residence," "reside" and "residing" refers to a place of bona fide continuous habitation. Residence once established cannot be changed within a season unless the parent or guardian makes a bona fide Change of Residence submission to Little League. Returning CPLL/WVLL players who have moved out of the amalgamated WVLL geographic boundaries are eligible to play in WVLL but must contact the league president at email@example.com to provide requested information. If you require clarification whether your player resides within WVLL boundaries, please contact our league president at firstname.lastname@example.org. Residence shall be established and supported by documents from THREE OR MORE of the following categories to determine residency of such parent(s) or guardian(s):
- Driver’s License
- Voter’s Registration
- School records
- Welfare/child care records
- Internet, cable or satellite records.
- Local (municipal) records
- Support payment records
- Homeowner or tenant records
- Utility bills (i.e. gas, electric, phone, mobile phone)
- Financial (loan, credit, investments, etc.) records
- Insurance documents
- Medical records
- Vehicle Registration
- Employment records
- Federal records.
- State / Provincial records.
- Military records.
Three utility bills (three items from No. 9 above) constitute only ONE document. Players and their parents/guardians are advised that a false statement of residence may lead to ineligibility to play Little League Baseball. School attendance shall be established and supported by a document indicating enrollment for the current academic year, dated prior to October 1 and with the physical location of the school, from ONE of the following categories to determine school attendance by such player:
- Official/Certified School enrollment record
- School issued report card or performance record
- A Little League issued school attendance form completed by the principal, assistant principal or administrator
If the claim for residency is challenged, three of the above materials must be submitted to Little League Baseball, with an affidavit of residency from the parent(s) or guardian(s), which shall decide the matter, with that decision being final and binding. Residency documents must illustrate that the residence (as defined above) was inside the league’s boundaries for at least one-half of the regular season (as of June 15 of the year in question).
