Waldorf Little League

We have compiled a list of the Frequently Asked Questions here.  There are some things we are unable to determine until registrations are complete.  These may include days of games and practices, location of away games.  When will practices be held, who is my child's coach.  Some of this information is determined by other leagues as well.  (Eg.  We have 4 minor league teams but another league has 2, we will do a schedule that encomasses them into our schedule)

If you cannot find the answer you are looking for please feel free to contact us.


CAN I JOIN ANY LITTLE LEAGUE PROGRAM?

Each Little League program is organized within a community. As part of a league's annual charter and Maryland District 7 Administrator, boundaries are established. These boundaries encompass physical address and/or school attendance.  It is only from within this territory that the league may register its players.


HOW DO I FIND THE LEAGUE THAT I LIVE IN?

You can visit the following website and enter your home address or child’s school address:  http://www.littleleague.org/leaguefinder.htm


HOW DO I REGISTER MY CHILD?

You can register on our website by clicking the My Account link at the top of the page.  If you do not have an account you will need to create one.  We will hold a few on-site registrations up to March 1.  Dates, times and location will be posted on our website.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE REGISTRATION FEE?

Players are issued a hat and socks at every level. 
T-ball and Instructional teams are issued a t-shirt jersey which they may keep.

Your registration fee also covers the cost of league operations, such as team equipment, field permits, end-of-season trophies, opening day ceremonies, and liability insurance.

Minors through Senior League are issued a jersey which must be turned in at the end of the season.  There is a $35 charge for jerseys not returned to the League.


HOW LONG IS THE SEASON?

The regular season games are played from the first week of April through the middle of June. 


WHAT EQUIPMENT WILL MY CHILD NEED TO PARTICIPATE?

You must purchase a glove and baseball pants for your child.  Cleats are not mandatory for PeeWee through Instructional, however, it will help prevent slips on the field.  Minors through Senior Leagues must wear appropriate cleats.  Metal cleats may be worn at the Junior/Senior Level of play.  Bats and Helmets are your preference, the league does have them for use during practice and play.  All catchers MUST wear an athletic cup.


WHAT BAT CAN MY CHILD USE?

Please visit the Little League link to see rules about bats.  Also note that Bat regulations will be changing in 2018 so any bats purchased this year will no longer be allowed in 2018.  Information can be found at

WHEN ARE PRACTICES?

Practice schedule will be distributed after teams are formed.  We are unable to develop them until we have completed registration and skills evaluations.  This is due to the fact that we will not know how many teams are in each division until after then.  Practices usually begin the second week of March at the earliest.


WHO HAS TO HAVE A SKILL EVALUATION?

All divisions above t-ball will have an evaluation.  This ensure that teams are drafted in a manner that will not have one team over power any other team. 


WHEN ARE EVALUATIONS?

Evaluations are conducted the first week of March weather permitting.


WHAT IS A DRAFT?

After evaluations, coaches and league vice president and/or president will conduct a draft within a few days of the evaluations.  This draft is conducted in rounds until all players have been put on a team.


WHEN DO GAMES BEGIN?

Games will begin the second week of April.  Opening day will be scheduled, and games may begin prior to that date.


WHAT DAYS DOES MY CHILDS DIVISION PLAY?

Days of play cannot be determined until we know the number of teams we have and what other leagues we will be playing against.


HOW MANY GAMES ARE PLAYED EACH WEEK?

Typically all division will play 2 games per week.  There are some Saturday games as well.  There are no games on Sunday and few on Fridays for the most part.


ARE THERE PRACTICES ONCE THE GAMES START?

We do not typically hold practices once games begin.  On an occasional basis, coaches my request a special practice to ensure the players are learning the basic skills of baseball, sportsmanship and friendly competition.

WHERE WILL GAMES BE PLAYED?
Home games will be played at Stethem Park, 4250 Piney Church Road.  We often interleague with other District 7 leagues.  This is in part because some leagues only have 1 or 2 teams in a particular division.  Games could be played in Hughesville, Pomfret, Upper Marlboro, Lexington Park, Dunkirk, and Patuxent.  This is determined division by division.  Most Pee Wee and TBall games are played at Stethem Park.


HOW DO I KNOW IF FIELDS ARE CLOSED?

Charles County Parks and Recreation Division monitors all fields.  They typically make a decision by 3:00 if the fields will be closed.  It will be posted on our website as soon as we hear from the County. 


WHAT ARE THE ALL-STARS?

Little League has all star teams in the Minor through Senior Divisions?  These teams are derived from the top 12 players at that level as voted on by the coaches in that Division.  The level of play begins at the District 7 level, winners advance to the Maryland State Tournament.  Any team winning the State Tournament will advance to the Regional Level of Play.  Should a team win the Regional Tournament, they will then advance to the World Series. 


WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS OF ALL STARS?

Players must be playing in their legal boundaries as determined by Little League East Region and the leagues boundary maps or have legally obtained a waiver to play outside their home leagues.  The all-stars are a commitment by coaches, parents and players.  This commitment is a very rewarding experience for all. 


IS THERE A COST FOR ALL STARS?

Waldorf Little League will secure uniforms with your child’s name on the back.  The cost to you will be $20 and they player will get to keep the shirt.  There are no fees to play in the all-stars.  If teams advance to further levels in the tournament, Waldorf Little League will provide $25 per day for meals for the players.
