|2024 Spring League Registration
2024 Spring Registration is now
We are now accepting registrations
for our 2024 spring season, which will begin in March. We encourage families to
register as soon as possible to guarantee a spot in the league.
Register before December 15th and save $25 for our Farm, Minors,
Majors, Intermediate and Juniors divisions.
We will begin to
close registration on a division by dvision basis starting in early
January. We assemble teams with a specific number of players, so we will close
registration once we have our initial teams assembled. We will support a
waiting list for each division, so there is the possibility that a child will
be added to a team if a spot opens up.

We are excited to open Little League
Baseball registration for the 2024 spring season, which is our 65th year here
1. Know your child's "Little League
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
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 league 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.

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:
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.
