What league should I sign my child up for?
The leagues are determined by your child's age as of a specific date. For baseball, the league age should be set by August 31. For softball, the league age is determined as of December 31st. Once you add your child to the registration site, you will automatically be directed to register for the appropriate league. 

I'm not sure if my child is prepared for this league. Are there any other alternatives?
If you feel your child may not be ready to participate in a specific league, they may waiver down to the league below. In addition, if you feel your child may be too advaned for the league for their age, you may waiver them up to the next league. Either way, the child MUST attend one of our waiver tryouts. We will provide dates for these events soon. 

My child should be eligible for the Babe Ruth program. Why can't I find that league?
The Babe Ruth league is not active this year. We are looking for alternatives for this program. 

What should I use to register my child -- my address or the school?
If you live within the Pella school district, your easiest option is to register by choosing which school your child attends. If you live outside the Pella school district, you may not be able to choose the appropriate school. If that's the case, you may be able to bypass the question to complete the registration. 

If your child is homeschooled, you may sign up using your home address.

When will the season start?
Our Minors and Majors leagues will start around mid April. Our Rookies leagues will begin in late May, and our Coach Pitch leagues will start in early June.

What equipment does my child need for Little League?
Your child needs to have a glove and a batting helmet. The helmet should have a face mask that protects the lower part of your child's face. You may also choose to provide a bat for your child to use. 

We also recommend your child wears cleats when they play. The cleats must be hard plastic. Metal spikes are not permitted in Little League play. 

Where will games be played?
Most games will be played at the Pella Sports Park. In our Minors and Majors leagues, your child may play at fields in other communities.

What nights will my child play?
Games are scheduled Mondays through Thursdays. We will not determine the league schedule until registrations are completed.

When will my child practice?
Practice days are determined by each team's coach. Once your child has a coach, you will hear from the coach for more information.

I have other questions. Who can I contact?
You can always email questions to us at [email protected].
