Steps to do a RHLL Registration – 2018

HERE IS A FAQ FOR PARENT REGISTRATION IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS

AS YOU REGISTER YOUR PLAYER(S), YOU CAN ALSO SIGN UP TO BE A VOLUNTEER (MANAGER, ASST. COACH, TEAM HELPER).  EACH VOLUNTEER WILL GO THROUGH A BACKGROUND CHECK SO PLEASE COMPLETE THE REQUIRED INFORMATION IN THAT SECTION.

THE BACKGROUND CHECK PROCESS HAS CHANGED FROM PREVIOUS YEARS.  LITTLE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL HAS CHANGED THEIR VENDOR (FIRST ADVANTAGE https://www.fadv.com/) FOR THIS PROCESS AND IT MEETS RHLL’S STRICT GUIDELINES FOR THE STATE OF MICHIGAN.  THIS HAS ALLOWED US TO UTILIZE THE SAME VENDOR AND SAVE VOLUNTEERS THE COST OF PAYING FOR THE BACKGROUND CHECK THEMSELVES.

IF YOU DECIDE TO SIGN UP TO BE A VOLUNTEER AT A LATER DATE AFTER YOU REGISTER YOUR PLAYER(S), SIMPLY JUST LOG BACK IN AND CLICK ON THE VOLUNTEER TAB ON THE PANEL ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE WEB PAGE.    

8 YEAR OLDS WILL HAVE 2 CHOICES TO PLAY IN, ROOKIES OR AA (KID PITCH).  PRIOR TO 2017, 8 YEAR OLDS COULD ONLY PLAY IN ROOKIES.  WE ARE OFFERING THIS OPTION TO ALLOW HIGHER SKILLED PLAYERS AN OPPORTUNITY TO FURTHER DEVELOP THEIR BASEBALL TALENT.  THERE ARE SOME CAREFUL CONSIDERATIONS BEFORE MAKING THIS CHOICE TO PLAY IN AA.  THIS DIVISION WILL CONSIST OF PLAYERS WHO ARE 8-10 YEARS OF AGE SO IT IS IMPORTANT TO DECIDE IF THE PLAYER IS READY TO PLAY WITH KIDS IN THIS AGE GROUP.    

THERE ARE ALSO SOME STIPULATIONS THAT WILL BE FOLLOWED FOR A 8 YEAR OLDS TO PLAY IN AA.   FIRST, ALL 8 YEAR OLDS WILL BE REQUIRED TO ATTEND TRYOUTS, NO EXCEPTIONS.  IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THE PLAYER DEMONSTRATE THE ABILITY TO PLAY IN THIS DIVISION TO BOTH EVALUATING MANAGERS AND BOARD MEMBERS.  SAFETY OF ALL PLAYERS IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS IN LITTLE LEAGUE AND RHLL RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REFUSE ANY 8 YEAR OLD PLAYER FROM PLAYING IN AA.   

SINCE RHLL DOES NOT OFFER SENIOR SB ANYMORE, WE ARE OFFERING 13 YEAR OLD GIRLS TO PARTICIPATE IN MAJOR SB.  HOWEVER, 13 YEAR OLDS ARE NOT ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE LITTLE LEAGUE STATE TOURNEY.

RHLL Board appoints all team managers and coaches. 

  •  RHLL Board will assign players to teams in non-draft divisions (T-Ball and Rookie Baseball and Rookie Softball.)
  •  Assigned by school as much as possible-some teams may have players from different schools.
  •  Requests to play for a particular manager or with friends will be highly considered, but there will be no promises, as the Board of Directors reserves the right to assign players to teams as necessary.
  •  At no time may a team have more that the maximum number of players as set by the RHLL Board.  Draft Division (AA BB, AAA BB, Major BB & SB, Junior BB, and Intermediate BB);
  •  Players in draft divisions will receive a draft rating at a tryout session.
  •  Managers from each division will draft players to their teams following RHLL Draft guidelines.
