Please email Challenger Commissioner Beth Cody at
with any questions. Registration for Challenger is set to open the week of January 28, 2019.
INTERMEDIATE 50/70 BASEBALL: This program is intended for LL-age 11, 12 and 13 year olds (for players born Sept 1, 2005 through Aug 31, 2008). Team(s) will play local area town teams on a field slightly larger than those at Town Farms. Players will be leading off bases and pitching from the stretch. Games are 7 innings, with no doubleheaders. For 11's and 12's, participation is intended to be supplemental to a player's primary Little League Spring baseball team. For 13's, this team provides a fun and final opportunity to play spring baseball on the 50/70 field before advancing to 60/90. As a Little League program, coaches are parent volunteers, and there are no cuts. Parents of 11's should first consider that their child will be playing with 13 year-old players. 50/70 Intermediate offers players focused on other travel sports a flexible opportunity to play 50/70 baseball. Depending on availability of players and the team's competitiveness, WLLB may choose to participate in the 50/70 Intermediate District summer tournament. Register for 50/70 Intermediate here ($195)
WESTPORT YOUTH TRAVEL BASEBALL: Children participating in any of Westport’s Youth Travel Baseball's programs (8U through 12U) this Spring must, as a condition to their participation in our Youth Travel Baseball programs, also register for and play in Westport's 2019 Spring Little League.

Any registration that is not completed and paid in full within two hours will be deleted and your child will not be placed on a team.

If you wish to apply, please complete the online registration and selected the financial aid option. Your registration will not be deleted for non-payment.
INTEGRATION WITH WESTON
Westport Little League and Weston Little League once again plan to integrate our Cap 2 (second grade), AAA (fifth grade) and Majors (sixth and seventh grades) programs under the Westport Little League Baseball umbrella this Spring, which was a successful pilot project last Spring. This integration will enable Westport Little League to maintain or expand the number of teams and adds an exciting travel element to competitive play while preserving WLLB's rules and infrastructure.
If your child is playing in one of our programs for the first time, you must mail a copy of his/her birth certificate to Westport Little League. In addition, if this is the first time a member of your family is participating in one of our programs, you must also mail proof of residency (such as a utility or phone bill). Please mail these items to:
Westport Little League, Attention Beth Cody
P.O. Box 581
Westport CT 06881
Your child cannot participate without first meeting these requirements.
WLLB manages programs for hundreds of children each Spring, and we do our best to form balanced teams. For Cap PK through Cap 2 (Grades pre-K through 2nd Grade), teams generally include players from the same elementary school. The Commissioners of Cap K and Cap 1 teams will make efforts to accommodate teammate and coach preferences indicated in registration when populating teams. However, in Cap 2 (second grade), we unfortunately cannot honor requests for children to be placed on a particular team or with a specific coach or other player due to the size of our program, the conflicting nature of requests, the need to create balanced teams, the complexity of populating teams and the volunteer nature of our organization. Teams for A, AA, AAA and Majors (Grades 3 through 7) are chosen via draft.
Refunds (less a $25 processing fee) can be issued upon written request to
prior to the announcement of team rosters. After team rosters are announced, refunds will only be issued (on a pro-rata basis) for season-ending injuries upon a written request to
. Such request must be accompanied by a doctor's note.
Our programs could not exist without parent coaches who generously volunteer their time. For parents who would like to volunteer as a head coach or an assistant coach, please check the appropriate box on your child’s registration form. The WLLB commissioners will choose a head coach and at least one assistant coach for each team. Once teams are formed, each team can add another coach (approved by WLLB) who is a parent of a child on the roster.
If your child is in the 6th grade or older and is interested in working as an umpire and earning money this Spring, please sign up in registration.
Westport Baseball & Softball is a nonprofit organization that, among other things, funds repairs and capital improvements of fields in town. If you wish to support the organization and its programs by making a tax deductible donation, please do so by entering an amount in the donation box on the registration form. This amount will be added to your total at the end of registration. Please note that all donations made via Little League registration will be utilized exclusively to support Little League programs.
