Eligibility & Residency Requirements (Baseball)

Player Age Requirements

Boys and girls of the appropriate ages are eligible to participate in Alpine Little League. A player's Little League age can be determined using this tool: Little League baseball age tool

Player Residency Requirements

The national Little League organization requires players to meet certain residence conditions to be eligible for a particular Little League program. The Menlo Park-Atherton area has three active Little League programs (Alpine Little League, M-A Little League, and Ravenswood Little League).

There are two main ways to establish residency - by resident address or school attendance. 

Resident Address:

Please follow the link below to see if you reside within the boundary area for Alpine Little League Baseball.  Little League Finder tool.  Please note the boundaries for baseball and softball are different so sure you make the right selections in the tool.

A player will be deemed to reside within the league boundaries if: 

A. His/her parents are living within the league boundaries. 

B. Either of the player’s parents (or his/her court-appointed legal guardian) resides within such boundaries.

"Residence", "reside” and “residing” refers to a place of bona fide continuous habitation. A place of residence once established shall not be considered changed unless the parents, parent or guardian makes a bona fide change of residence

Residence shall be established and supported by providing a copy of ONE of the following to determine residency of such parent(s) or guardian:

Utility Bill (Water, Electric, Gas, Phone)

Cable Bill

Cell Phone Bill

Driver’s License or State ID

School Attendance:

If your player attends a school that is inside the boundary, you are eligible to play for Alpine Little League.  During the registration process you will be prompted to upload a school verification form. 

For Baseball eligible schools are: Corte Madera, Hillview, La Entrada, Oak Knoll, Ormandale, Phillips Brooks, St. Raymond’s, Woodland, Woodside and Woodside Priory.

Waiver Process:

If you reside outside the boundary and do not attend one of the schools listed above, your player may be eligible for a waiver to play in Alpine Little League.

Refunds

Registration fees can be refunded prior to the team formation. Team formation dates by division are published on our website calendar. Once teams are formed and announced, no refunds will be processed. Please contact the registrar at [email protected] to coordinate a refund prior to the team formation dates.


Friend and Team Requests

For Tee Ball and Coach Pitch ONLY: We will accept friend requests through the registration process until February 5th. Registration will remain open until February 25th but we cannot honor friend requests beyond February 5th.

AA, AAA and Majors teams are created by draft.  This allows for the creation of equitable teams, therefore Alpine Little League cannot accept requests for specific coaches or players to be on a team together.
