Things You Should Know Before Registering

All Registration is On-Line

Since 2010 all registrations have been conducted on-line via this website. There are no manual methods to register.

If you do not have your own computer, you may use one of those available at the Benicia Public Library.

Walk-In Sessions are conducted for the purpose of age and residency validation. On-Line Registration must be completed before age and residency validation.

Who Must Complete The Age and Residency Validation Process

All families with players of league age 4 - 15 must complete their registration process by attending one of our walk-in validation events. If you miss the scheduled walk-in validation events, you may still complete the age and residency validation process during one of our player evaluation Saturday's in early January. See the website for more details on scheduled walk-in events, and evaluation sessions.

For details of what information is required for registration please see the details below by clicking here

Who is eligible to play

Players between the age of 5 and 18 living in the Benicia Little League boundaries.

Little League International rules specify that you need to be able to produce three or more pieces of proof of residency such as driver's license, utility bills or government forms (view residency eligibility requirements).

What Division Level of Play you want to request for your child

To learn about each Division, view our Divisions of Play FAQ or our Division Levels of Play document.

Will your child need to attend evaluations?

Yes, for players League Age 9 and older. This help us place them in the correct division. Please review the League Calendar for dates and times of the evaluation sessions.

What is League Age?

The Little League year (as of November 2016) runs from January 1st through August 31st of each year. With the change to Little Leagues age policy for 2016, "League Age" is now calculated based on the age the player will be in the year of play through the summer season (as of 8/31).

As an example, a player who turns 9 years old on or before 8/31 will be considered that league age for the season.

Like the residency requirement, you must also be able to provide proof of your child's birth date. For more information, view the proof of age requirements.

Payment Policy

All fees must be paid in full or up-to-date for players to participate in league evaluation sessions (tryouts), or be assigned to teams. If fees are not paid in full, the player will be placed on a waiting list until fee issues are resolved.

Registration Details

Our new on-line registration process is much simpler and more effective than ever. To register, please read the following instructions.

Click on the link below to go to the 1st part of the registration process called on-line registration. Follow the directions carefully. For those of you who registered last year, you will find most of your information already completed. Others will need to fill in the blanks.

IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU COMPLETE ON-LINE REGISTRATION BEFORE ATTENDING THE AGE and RESIDENCY VALIDATION PHASE.

If you do not have access to an internet-enabled computer, it is recommended that you use a computer at a site such as the Benicia Public Library. Failure to complete the on-line process before attending an Age and Residency Validation session will prevent your player from being eligible for the draft or being assigned to a team.

There will be NO computers available at the Age and Residency Validation sessions for public use.

If you arrive at an Age and Residency Validation session without having completed the on-line phase, we will NOT be able to perform the required Age and Residency validation.

After the on-line process is completed ,  come to any one of our Age and Residency Validation sessions which will be held at a location to be determined in Benicia. The dates and times of the "walk in sessions" are below.
To make the Age and Residency Validation process as efficient as possible, registrants should come prepared with the following:
  1. Receipt from Registration
  2. Birth certificate of player
  3. A document containing the registrant's home address such as a utility bill, phone bill, or bank statement

If a family member plans to manage, coach, or volunteer in some other capacity, please complete the VOLUNTEER AND MANAGER-COACH forms on the web site AND bring a copy of photo ID to the Age and Residency Validation session. These forms and ID will be used for the background check mandated by Little League International for all volunteers who will have regular contact with players.

If you have any questions concerning registration, please contact either:

Spring 2016 Age and Residency Validation Sessions

All 2016 Walk-In Age and Residency Validations sessions have been completed.

A&RV Session One: Completed
A&RV Session Two: Completed
Final A&RV Session: Completed

Request to Play Up or Down

If you wish your child to play up into a division before they are technically age eligible, or you wish your child to play down and remain in a previous revision. Please fill out the request for and submit it to our player agents:

    Player Agent Tee Ball / Farms: playeragenttf@benicialittleleague.com Player Agent Majors / Minors: playeragent@benicialittleleague.com Download the form by clicking here  
    Note: A fee may be required to cover the difference between divisional fees as our registration process cannot collect it.

    Refund Policy

    Should you or your player decide not to participate in the Spring or Fall seasons, please be aware of our refund policy

    Before Tryouts: Families will be entitled to a full refund minus a refund processing fee.
    Before Draft / Team Formation: Families will be entitled to a partial refund based on the timing of the request. A refund processing fee will be retained as well
    After Team Formation: Families are not entitled to refunds after their player has been drafted, or otherwise assigned to a team.

    Changes to Little League Age Policy for Spring 2016

    Beginning with the 2016 season, Little League International has changed the basis for the calculation of League Age.

    All players born after 8/31/2005 will now have their league age calculated based on their age as of August 31st for the season calendar year. Players who were born on or before 8/31/2005 will be grandfathered in and have their league age calculated on the previous May 1st date formula.

    You may view the new league age calculation matrix (2016 Little League Age Chart) www.littleleague.org for more information.

    You may also test the changes by using the League Age calculator on our website under Registration Information.

    Age Change FAQ

    Q: Who is Impacted?
    A: Players born after 2005 and with birth dates between May 1st and August 31st are impacted. All other players are not impacted by the change.

    Q: What happens when I register for Spring 2016?
    A: Our registration program will be updated so that all players will be placed in the proper age bracket based on their Date of Birth and the new Little League age calculation chart.
