CVLL Division Guidelines
These are the general guidelines that are used for the placement of players into our divisions of Baseball and Softball. Please note these guidelines do not pertain to our Challenger Division. Our Challenger division does not have any age, experience or skill evaluation or requirements.
For our Baseball and Softball divisions, with the exception of 5 year olds, year 6 year olds, and first year 7 year olds, all players must participate in a tryout to determine their skill level and ultimate placement in a division.
In all divisions except T-Ball/Peanuts and Farm B, teams are selected by an individual coach through a player draft. Furthermore,
THERE ARE NO LONGER “PROPERTY PLAYERS” IN MAJORS AS IN PAST YEARS. ALL RETURNING MAJORS PLAYERS MUST TRY OUT.
It is our intention to ensure each and every player is appropriately placed in a division where their skills and experience allow them to safely enjoy their participation in our league.
** Please understand these are only guidelines and not all players will fit into the divisions/age groups outlined below unless otherwise mandated by Little League rules. **
1. Mini-Peanuts (4YO only. Introduction to baseball)
2. T-Ball/Peanuts (first or second year players 4 to 7 YO)

Our Challenger Division/Program
The Challenger Division provides boys and girls with disabilities the opportunity to experience the emotional development and fun of playing Little League Baseball.
The Challenger Division also helps to establish strong bonds of friendship between Little Leaguers from other programs and Challenger children in an atmosphere of sharing and caring. In Challenger games, "buddies" help their challenged partners by acting as guides for blind children or pushing wheelchair-bound children around the base-paths.
Challenger Division will continue to provide new opportunities for children with disabilities so that everyone can get into the game, instead of watching from the side.
There is no cost to participate in Challenger Baseball. The only things the players have to supply are shoes, and a glove. Challengers will supply uniforms and equipment; the uniforms are the children’s to keep.
For more information please email John Saylor

Little League Residency Requirements:
RESIDENCE AND SCHOOL ATTENDANCE
PLAYER ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS
Each local Little League determines the actual geographic boundaries of the area from within which it shall select players. These boundaries must be described in detail and shown on a map and dated when making application for a Little League charter. Players will be eligible to play with that league only if they reside or the physical location of the school where they attend classes is within the boundaries provided to and approved by Little League Baseball, Incorporated.
I. A player will be deemed to reside within the league boundaries if:
A. His/her parents are living together and are residing within such league boundaries, OR;
B. Either of the player's parents (or his/her court-appointed legal guardian) reside within such boundaries. It is
unacceptable if a parent moves into a league's boundaries for the purpose of qualifying for tournament play.
As detailed later in these rules, the penalty for violation of this rule may, in Little League Baseball, Incorporated’s discretion, result in the disqualification of a player, team or entire league from regular season and/or tournament play.
"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 documents, dated or in force between February 1, 2014 (previous year) and February 1, 2015 (current year), from THREE OR MORE of the following categories to determine residency of such parent(s) or guardian:
1. Driver's License
2. Voter's Registration
3. School records
4. Welfare/child care records
5. Federal records
6. State records
7. Local (municipal) records
8. Support payment records
9. Homeowner or tenant records
10. Utility bills (i.e., gas, electric, water/sewer, phone, mobile phone, heating, waste disposal)
11. Financial (loan, credit, investments, etc.) records
12. Insurance documents
13. Medical records
14. Military records
15. Internet, cable or satellite records
16. Vehicle records
17. Employment records
NOTE: Example - Three utility bills (three items from No. 10 above) constitute only ONE document.
Any documents submitted as proof of residence must show customary usage or consumption to “School attendance" refers to the (place) physical location the player in question attends school during the traditional academic year. Once established, a location of school attendance shall not be considered changed unless the child is enrolled and attends another school or is no longer enrolled in the previous school.
School attendance shall be established and supported by a document indicating enrollment for the current academic year, dated prior to October 1, 2014 and with the physical location of the school, from ONE of the following categories to determine school attendance by such player:
1. Official/Certified School enrollment record
2. School issued report card or performance record
3. A Little League issued school attendance form completed by the principal,
assistant principal or administrator
It is recommended that the league require some proof of residence or school attendance within the league's boundaries at the time the player registers. Players and their parents/guardians are advised that a false statement of residence or school attendance may lead to ineligibility to play Little League Baseball or Softball. Under NO circumstances does ANY person have the authority to grant a waiver that allows a child to play in a local Little League program IN ANY DIVISION, when that child does not qualify under these residency requirements. Any league who accepts any player outside of their boundaries and fails to properly document compliance with the “Residence and/or School Attendance Player Eligibility Requirement" or obtain a waiver through the Charter Committee may result in the disqualification of a player, team or entire league from regular season and/or tournament play.
If the claim for residency or school attendance is challenged, the above materials must be submitted to Little League Baseball, Incorporated, with an affidavit of residency or school attendance from the parent(s) or guardian. Little League Baseball, Incorporated shall have the right to request additional documentation in support of the claim of residency or school attendance. The parent(s) or legal guardian will be required to provide said documentation to obtain eligibility. Little League Baseball, Incorporated shall decide the issue in its sole discretion, and that decision will be final and binding. Residency or school documents must illustrate that the residence or school attendance (as defined above) was inside the league's boundaries throughout the regular season (as of June 15 of the year in question).
In the case of a Regulation ||(d) Waiver Form, or a Regulation lV(h) Waiver Form, the proof of residence for the FORMER residence of the parent(s) that was within the current league's boundaries must be obtained. This proof of residence for the former residence must be supported by the same documentation as noted above.
Tournament Requirement for Non-Citizens: A participant who is not a citizen of the country in which he/she wishes to play, but meets residency requirements as defined by Little League, may participate in that country if:
1. his/her visa allows that participant to remain in that country for a period of

These documents will be submitted to the District Administrator. If the documents are found to be acceptable, a "Statement in Lieu of Acceptable Proof of Birth” will be issued and all original documents returned. The information submitted will be kept conﬁdential.
