GO TO REGISTRATION

All ages listed below are Little League ages. Skill evaluations are tryouts for players who do not default by Little League age to the level being considered.

Important Rule Change Affecting Little League Ages
In 2015, The National LL organization updated its age calculation for players born after April 30, 2006. After this date, the age cut-off date is August 31. The result is that player ages will increase for players born between May and August. Your player's default league will be determined using these ages.

If your child was born between:

- The Volunteer Buyout fee has increased to $125. PALL is a volunteer-enabled organization and encourages your participation.

- IMPORTANT: Majors & PCL (Minors) Tryouts – PARTICIPATION IN A SKILLS EVALUATION IS MANDATORY FOR ALL PLAYERS TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE PCL AND MAJORS DIVISIONS. (Players who are age-appropriate or who have previously played in a league are evaluated for mandatory placement.) A link to schedule tryout appearances is provided upon completing your registration. After registering, you may also use your registration login at http://tryouts.pabaseball.org

- AAA (Kid Pitch) is the default league for 9 & 10-year-olds WITHOUT TRYOUT. Players who have previously played PCL or Majors will default to the higher league WITH MANDATORY TRYOUT.

- All 9 and 10-year-olds interested in playing Spring PCL are required to attend a MANDATORY TRYOUT. PCL Managers will be drafting players from MANDATORY TRYOUT results.

- 11-year-olds default to PCL with MANDATORY TRYOUT.

- 12-year-olds default to Majors. If your 12-year-old would like to play in PCL, indicate this preference in Step 2 of the online registration form. 12-year-olds intending to play in Majors are required to attend a MANDATORY TRYOUT before being drafted onto a team.

- Should my 12-year-old who played PCL last year play PCL or Majors this year? read this

- The 50/70 IM division is now accepting 12-year-olds. 12-year-olds must try out for 50/70 and MAY PLAY IN MAJORS AND 50/70 IN THE SAME SEASON. The number of teams will be limited due to field space for practices and games. Our teams will interlock with Menlo Park, Redwood City, San Mateo and Half Moon Bay. 50/70 selection and team placement is based on tryout for all ages. 12 and 13-year-olds are evaluated at a tryout TBD.

- Teammate Requests in T-Ball, Coach Pitch and AA must be specific and are NOT GUARANTEED. Teammate requests are subordinate to the practice of building teams according to the schools players attend. Reciprocal teammate requests made between two players are most strongly considered. INDICATE TEAMMATE REQUEST (First and Last name) IN THE TEAMMATE REQUEST FIELD ONLY (not comments field, etc.).

- Consider a donation to Palo Alto Little League. At the confirmation page of your registration, you will have the opportunity to specify an additional $ amount that will help us fund our programs. Thanks for your support.

- A Palo Alto Utilities account number is required. The City of Palo Alto is beginning to use this information in determining eligibility, field assignments and usage fees.

- Outstanding registration fees from the past year will be indicated. If you have an unpaid registration fee, you may register your child, but s/he will be waitlisted for this season until the prior fee(s) are reconciled. You may request a scholarship for fees.

- EARLY REGISTRATION IS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED as we do reach capacity in most levels each year. FAILURE TO REGISTER IN A TIMELY FASHION MAY RESULT IN WAITLISTING IF THOSE CAPACITY LIMITS HAVE BEEN REACHED.

- A note to parents of non-resident players attending school in Palo Alto: National Little League allows players attending school in Palo Alto to play in Palo Alto Little League. Players are also eligible to play in the Little Leagues where they reside. See this page for the details of submitting a waiver document for a child who is registered in a Palo Alto school.
