Frequently Asked Questions

How does League Age and Divisions work?

When registering, the division will display the eligible birth date range (as determined by Little League of Baseball) in the "show details" link on the registration sign up page. All children will be required to register in their Little League age division. Any special requests to "play up" a division will require an email to the league and the player must attend both tryouts (see local Rule 1.01 of the Arden Little League Local Rules for a break down of league ages by division).

For more information and to determine your child's little league age, see these resources.

NOTE: While indicated on the Little League website, please note that Arden Little League's Local Rules state that a eligible player must be "league age" 5 or 6 to play in the Tee Ball division. This means that children league age 4 are not permitted to play in Arden Little League.

For information on Play up requests, please visit the Arden Little League Local Rules page under 1.01 Divisions.

Can we register in-person at Residency Confirmation nights?

No, you must register online before attending one of two Residency Confirmation nights at Mariemont Elementary School on January 7th or 13th from 6-8 p.m. in the multi-purpose room. Please bring your completed Medical Release form along with your School Enrollment Form or proof of residency (see question below for requirements).

Who has to tryout and when are Tryouts?

Every player must attend one tryout (excluding Tee Ball, 50/70 and Juniors divisions). Players who have requested to play UP or DOWN must attend tryouts for both of the divisions they are eligible for. Tryouts for Arden Little League's 2020 Spring season will be held on Saturday, January 18, 2020 and Saturday, January 25, 2020 at Sacramento Sports Center (1600 Tribute Road, Sacramento 95815). Dates subject to change so please check back closer to these dates.

Please arrive 15 minutes before your division start time for registration and warm-ups. Players only need to attend one of the two tryouts. Again, players requesting to play UP or DOWN must attend tryouts for both of the divisions they are eligible for.

Please bring a glove, hat, bat, helmet, and turf/tennis shoes (no cleats).

Residency & School Eligibility Requirements

First year players only must provide a copy of their birth certificate to be eligible. All new and returning players are required to a show proof of enrollment in a school located within league boundaries OR three (3) proofs of residency documents at registration night. Last year, Little League changed its rules and no longer allows report cards to be used as proof of residency.

The preferred method to verify eligibility is to provide a copy of your child's enrollment record. School attendance shall be established and supported by a document indicating enrollment for the current academic year, and with the physical location of the school within the league boundaries, from ONE of the following categories to determine school attendance by such player:

  1. Official/Certified School enrollment record
  2. A Little League issued School Enrollment Form completed by the principal, assistant principal or administrator.

An alternative option is to show 3 separate proof of residency documents. Without 3 proofs of residency, you will not be able to register your player...No exceptions!

View acceptable proof of residency documents.

All documents must be dated from February 1st of the prior year (2019) up to the last day of registration.

What is a "Bleacher Booster"?

Bleacher Boosters are families/individuals who contribute to the League and are listed in the Little League directory when published. The additional donations (usually one per family) help to offset the costs of the League and to hold the player fees at a reasonable level. The donation is tax deductible. All Bleacher Boosters also become Regular Members of Arden Little League and are invited to the Arden Little League Annual Meeting.

When does practice start?

Each volunteer manager/coach sets their own practices including day, time and place. Most practices begin the first part of February.

How are teams formed?

Teams are formed using a draft process, except for T-Ball and Seniors. Managers and Coaches select players on a rotation; this works to balance teams. Requests to play with a particular coach or friend cannot be honored.

When will I know what team I am on?

Teams are drafted (selected) in mid-February. You should hear from your team manager or coach around the beginning of February.
