2024 Spring League Registration
2024 Spring Registration is now OPEN

We currently still have slots open in our Challenger Division, which is intended for children with mental or physical challenges.

We are currently waitlisting players for the following divisions: T-Ball, Pioneer, Farm, Minors, Majors, Intermediate & Juniors. We assemble teams with a specific number of players assigned to each team, so rather than having an imbalanced number of players, we move to a wait list after initial teams are formed. If your child is placed on our wait list, they will be added to a team if a roster spot opens up.

You should register your child through our online reg system below and they will be added to our wait list. We will add them to a team if a spot opens up.

Welcome to Sunnyvale Little League Registration!

READ THIS ENTIRE PAGE before registering!

We are excited to open Little League Baseball registration for the 2024 spring season, which is our 65th year here in Sunnyvale!

1. Know your child's "Little League age".

Eligibility in certain divisions is based on a player's "baseball age," which is determined by Little League Baseball's age calendar. To determine your child's playing age, please refer to the Little League Age Chart for Baseball or Little League Baseball's Age Calculator.

2. Verify you live within the League Boundaries

In order to play in Sunnyvale Little League, your child must either reside or attend school within our league's boundaries. Please note that there are three leagues in Sunnyvale: Sunnyvale Little League (that's us), Sunnyvale Metro LL and Sunnyvale National LL. Our league boundaries cover parts of Sunnyvale, north Cupertino and South Los Altos.

All league boundary information may be found here.

If you do not live within the Sunnyvale Little League boundaries OR your child does not attend a school within our boundaries, please visit www.cad44.org to find the league that you reside in.

3. Determine which Division your child will play.

Sunnyvale Little League has 8 divisions: Challenger, T-Ball, Pioneer, Farm, Minors, Majors, Intermediate and Juniors. Players will typically be placed in the division which is appropriate for the player's age, with the exception of our Challenger Division, which is intended for children with developmental challenges. There are some exceptions to this, but you should register for the division which is appropriate to the players age.

Considerations for children aged 8 and up

While you are required to register your child for the division that is age appropriate based on the player's "baseball age" (see section 1 above to determine your child's baseball age). All players aged 9 to 14 will be required to go through our player evaluation event on January 20th & 21st. We will then assign the child to the appropriate division based on player evaluations. For 8 year-olds with advanced baseball skills, you should register for the Farm Division AND notify our Lower Division Player Agent by January 14th if you would like to have your child participate in player evaluations so that they may be considered for our Minors Division.

Division Details: For detailed information on each of our playing divisions, including information on the amount of practices and games, please refer to our Division Information.

Challenger Division: Challenger is offered to enable boys and girls with developmental challenges, ages 4 years to 22, to enjoy the game of baseball.

We strongly encourage children to play in a traditional division if they are prepared to do so. If you have questions on our Challenger Division, please contact our Challenger Director at: playeragent.challenger@sunnyvalelittleleague.com.

Divisions with a Waiting List: As we get close to the start of the season, we will place certain divisions into a "waiting list state" once we register enough players to form teams. If you attempt to register, and you are presented with a message which indicates that you are in a waiting list, it does not mean your child won't play this season. We do everything in our power to form equally balanced teams, so we have to limit the roster size for any given team. Roster sizes vary by division. If you are on a waiting list, it means that we still need more players to register in your respective division, so that we can form a whole team. You can help expedite this by introducing our league to your friends and have them register. If you have any questions about the waiting list, please reach out to our Player Agent at: playeragent@sunnyvalelittleleague.com

4. Select Your Volunteer Role

Sunnyvale Little League is an organization completely operated by parent and community volunteers. The league requires that all families fulfill a league level volunteer position and a team level volunteer position The "league level" obligation consists of a job, outlined in the "volunteer positions" link below. The "team level" obligation typically means helping to operate the snack shack two or three times during the season AND helping with field preperation and closing (before and after games). While not a hard requirement, families with more than one child in the league should work with their respective Team Scheduler to help ensure that these roles are covered. Multi-player families may be asked to have both guardians serve a league level volunteer role if there is a need for volunteers. We try to distribute league level roles across families, but our first priority is to make sure that all league roles are covered.

League Level Roles: Team Level Roles:
  • Coaching
  • Equipment Management
  • Food Service
  • Fundraising
  • Facilities
  • Registration
  • Safety
  • Officiating / Umpires
  • Board of Director
Here is a list of all league level volunteer positions
  • Field Preparation: help water and drag fields, paint foul lines before and after games (Mandatory)
  • Snack Shack: work 2 or 3 shifts in the snack shack (buy-out option available)
Buyout Information:
Parents / guardians have the option of buying out of their league and team level volunteer obligations, but please keep in mind that the league as a whole and each respective team requires volunteers in order to function. Buyout options include:
  • League Level Volunteer buyout - $250
  • Snack Shack Volunteer buyout - $150
  • League Level & Snack Shack Volunteer buyout - $400
Buyouts will be processed when you register. The Snack Shack level buyout only excuses the guardian from snack shack duty, but we still require you to assist with field preperation and closing.

5. Register

All registrations are being processed online. Some very basic (but important) instructions:
  1. You will first be prompted to create an online account. This collects parent and player information. If you registered with our league previously, you may re-use the account you created at that time.
  2. You will then be prompted to register your child(ren). Click on the "Register" button next to your child's name to add the child to your online shopping cart. If you are registering multiple children, be sure to add both before "checking out" (i.e. paying as the final step in your registration).
  3. Finally, you will be prompted to "complete checkout", which will prompt you for payment information.
  4. After you have completed checkout, there will be a message that reads "Your registration is not complete until the documents listed below have been received by the organization!" These documents must be provided by you in person at Document Verification Days (likely to be held on January 20th & 21st at Cupertino Middle School during player evaluations) Do NOT mail these documents to the league.
PLEASE NOTE: When you complete registration, your credit card statement will show an entry from "BLUE SOMBRERO". This is our online registration vendor. PLEASE do not submit any chargebacks with your bank on these entries as therer is a significant charge to the league.

6. Complete Volunteer Verification

The State of California requires all youth sports volunteers who have material exposure to children (e.g. coaches and umpires) to complete the following (Ca Assembly Bill 506, AB-2007 and AB-379):
  • One time fingerprinting by a certified agency
  • Complete Mandatory Reporter training
  • Concussion recognition and treatment protocol training
  • Sudden Cardiac Arrest recognition training
Little League Baseball also requires the following training:
  • Annual background check
  • Diamond Leader Training (for all postseason coaches)
In all cases, these tasks must be completed before the volunteer is allowed to conduct any league activity where children are present. This applies to team head coaches, assistant coaches and umpires. Team admins are required to complete the background check process, but not the other trainings.

All details on how to complete these tasks may be found here.

7. Attend Document Verification Day

Document Verification is for ALL players for the 2024 Spring season

ALL parents do need to complete the Volunteer Verification process as described in Section 6 above. We will also need a copy of your driver’s license, which should be presented during Document Verification (tentatively scheduled for January 20th & 21st).

The league will hold Document Verification Day which is typically held in conjunction with the Juniors / Intermediate / Majors/Minors player evaluations at Cupertino Middle School, at a location to be commmunicated by the league.

Detailed information on what documents you will need to provide the league may be found here.

Families may expedite address verification by providing screen shots of required documents during the online registration process. You should provide photocopies of the following:
  1. Birth certificate of all children being registered
  2. City of Sunnyvale/Cupertino/Los Altos water bill
  3. Cable TV or phone bill
If you do not live within SVLL's boundaries, but your child attends a school within our boundaries, you may satisfy residency requirements via the following:
  • A school issued report card or performance record will no longer be accepted to establish school attendance. Either the school enrollment form or an official/certified school enrollment record dated prior to October 1, 2022 can be used to establish school attendance for the 2023 season.

8. Post Season Participation Procedures

The SVLL Board of Directors implemented new Post Season Participation Procedures last season. All players who are selected to participate in post season play (8 to 14 year olds) must comply with these procedures.
