Spring 2021 Registration is Open!

Hello, Portland Little League families!

Registration for the Spring 2021 Little League season is now open
! Here are some key things to know:

 

COVID-19 Information

We are preparing as though we will have a normal season (or as close to normal as possible, given the circumstances). That said, we are still in a pandemic and we are taking steps to ensure the safety of all players and volunteers. For example, we are limiting evaluations to Majors players only (league age 11 and 12; league age 10 players are welcome to assess for Majors if interested), and we are going to space out evaluations over a longer period so that fewer players are gathered at the same time. Masks will also be required as the players will be evaluated indoors.


Registration Information

T-ball: $60 (plus processing fee)

All others (except Challenger): $95 (plus processing fee)

 

There is a $3 processing fee per transaction (registering two or more kids at once counts as one transaction, so if you have more than one child to register, we recommend registering them at the same time to avoid multiple processing fees).

If your child is league age 11 or 12, they must register by March 6 – for all others, the normal registration period will remain open until March 31. Beginning April 1, we will allow registrations but there will be a $50 late fee applied per child. This late fee period will close on April 11. Starting April 12, we will place any interested parties on a waiting list (the late fee still applies if we find a team for your child). We cannot guarantee placement on a team for players registered after April 11, so do yourself a favor and register ASAP!


Division Structure

In general, Majors will be league age 11-12, AAA will be league age 9-10, AA will be league age 7-8, and t-ball will be league age 5-6. We will also field a Juniors Softball team, if there is enough interest.

Note: To determine your child's league age, use the 
League Age Calculator (a link is also found on our website). A child's league age may be different than their actual age, and league age for baseball may be different than league age for softball. Also, when determining the league age for t-ball, choose Little League Baseball under Sport for both boys and girls on the calculator.


Assessments

Assessments will take place in mid-March - more info to come soon. As noted above, only players who are league age 11 and 12 will be assessed (along with any league age 10 players who want to assess for Majors). All league age 11 and 12 players, baseball and softball, must attend assessments.

All players who are assessing for Majors must be registered by March 6.


Opening Day

Opening Day is scheduled for Saturday, May 1. Majors teams can play games during the week before Opening Day; Minors teams can practice that week, but will not play a game before Opening Day.


Volunteering

This league cannot run without volunteers (coaches, concessions, field clean up, umpires, board of directors, etc.). WE NEED YOU! We still have multiple board positions we need to fill in the coming weeks, including division director positions in baseball and softball, so please reach out to us ASAP to volunteer or ask any questions.

All volunteers must pass a background check. If your child has aged out of Little League but you would still like to volunteer, that's great! Please email [email protected] to let us know.


Fundraising

We have a Clynk account set up - if you'd like to donate from your Clynk account, search for Portland Little League on the Clynk website. If you'd like Portland Little League tags to put on your Clynk bags, email [email protected] and we'll get you some!
