4.CAN SIBLINGS BE PLACED ON THE SAME TEAM?

Yes, in most circumstances.  The siblings must be eligible for the same division, and a request should be made at the time of registration to ensure the league is aware. 

5. CAN MY DAUGHTER/SON PLAY ON THE SAME TEAM AS HIS FRIEND?

In some circumstances, yes.  A friend request can be made for lower divisions (AAA, AA, & Tee ball).  We do our best to accommodate your request however please note that this isn't always possible.  For the upper divisions (Majors and above) friend requests are not accepted.

6. CAN I REQUEST A SPECIFIC MANAGER / COACH?

Every season we have many requests.  In many cases there are more requests than spaces available on a team. Unfortunately we are not able to accommodate all requests and we apologize in advance.  We appreciate your understanding.  It is our goal to evenly distribute players among the teams to create balanced teams for competitive divisions.

7. HOW DO I KNOW WHAT DIVISION MY CHILD SHOULD PLAY IN?

On the top menu, click on "League divisions".  Determine your child's league age, then look below for which division he/she is eligible.  In addition, when registering your child, only open and available divisions will be shown on the site. 

8. WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS IF REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED?  

If you do not see your division listed as open you can still register and be placed on a wait list for the current season.  If spots open or another team can be formed you will be contacted by a league representative.  If registration is not open yet for the fall season please create an account and follow our Facebook page to be notified when Fall registration opens.

9. WHY ARE THERE TRYOUTS AND EVALUATIONS?  

All league age 10-16 players who have not already been drafted will attend a tryout in order to be eligible for their respective divisions draft to be selected on a team within that division for the spring season.  (Fall season players are distributed by our player agent but then attend the tryout in the Spring.)  League age 9, 10 & 11 players may get drafted to a majors team.  If not, they will be placed on a AAA division (minors) team.  All League age 12 players will be drafted to a majors team unless a waiver is requested and approved by the district.  If your son/daughter has already been drafted to a majors, juniors or seniors team, they will remain on that team until moving up to the next division.  All league age 6-9 players who are new to WPLL attend an evaluation so that proper placements can be made on a AAA or AA (Minor or Rookie Division) team as we strive for competitive balance. 

9. HOW TO DECIDE AA (ROOKIES) or Tee Ball?

All league age 6 players must have played a season of tee-ball before moving up to the AA division. If a parent registers a 6 year old in AA/rookies and they have not played a season of tee-ball, they will be moved to the tee-ball division. 


10. HOW DO I REGISTER FOR THE 50/70 (INTERMEDIATE) TEAM?

Intermediate is a competitive division that follow Junior Division rules (runners can lead off) but on a smaller field.  Any player league age 12 or 13 that would like to be considered for the intermediate division must send an email of intent to [email protected] to be considered.   All interested players are subject to a try out or evaluation to be considered for a spot on the team.  All games in the intermediate division will require travel and will take place on Wednesday and/or Saturday evenings.
