Spring 2021 Davis Little League Registration is Now Open

 

Hello Davis Little League! Let’s Play Ball!

The Davis Little League is excited to open up registration for the Spring 2021 season. Like many things in our lives, the start to this season will look a bit different.

We had an extremely successful Fall Training Camp and were able to get the kids outside into practice pods, playing baseball, and safely interacting with their peers. We plan to build on this successful model with an eye towards hopeful competition later in the season.

We will be starting the Spring 2021 season with training pods again, exactly like we did in the fall. According to Yolo County COVID-19 guidelines, we cannot play competitive games until Yolo moves into the Red Tier which we anticipate to be sometime during the week of 3/1/21. We are currently in the Purple Tier and baseball is a sport that is allowed to have outdoor practices, but we cannot play competitive games. 

Davis Little League has updated our COVID plans to enusre they meet all state, county, and city guidelines. The DLL board recognizes that these guidelines are the most up-to-date and authoratitive source on how to safely conduct physical activity with COVID-19 still in our lives.

In anticipation of moving to the Red Tier later this spring, we will be forming teams this season the way we always do for the spring season, where buddy and coach requests will not be honored and our Division Reps will form teams with an eye to competitive balance. We are slightly looser on this policy in T-ball, but firm in all other divisions. This will allow the team to practice and train together until we move into the Red Tier when the players will don their team jerseys and PLAY BALL. Everyone will be in the right place to set up a season and game schedule quickly.

This also means that we will be having Tryouts for the AAA and Majors divisions, followed by a draft, which is how these divisions spread out their players to ensure an equal competitive balance.

Sibling requests are still allowed. Coaches who choose to coach together will be guaranteed to have their children playing together. T-ball, Farm, and AA all allow for 1 manager and 2 assistant coaches (AC’s). Majors and AAA allow for 1 manager and 1 AC. Managers may have more than their allotted number of ACs but can only choose 1 or 2 (depending on division) for team placement of their own children. Want to play with another family? Form a coach team!

The Davis Little League is very committed to competitively balanced teams. Learning to play with new friends and with different coaches is what helps develop great sportsmanship and new skills. Thank you for your understanding.

Release Forms

We have 2 forms that we will need to get back from you before the season starts: the traditional Medical Release form and another release form from the City of Davis. We are hoping to be able to do this electronically this year (to save trees and make our jobs easier). Stay tuned for future announcements as we figure this out.

The new form from the City of Davis, The Athletic Field User Release and Indemnification Agreement, this is a new release form required by the city for your player to be allowed to practice on the DLL Fields, which are owned by the City of Davis.

Spring Registration Dates and Costs 

Regular Registration runs from January 20th through February 24th at 5pm.

Late Registration will run from February 24th at 5pm through March 5th. All registration pages will close on this date.

  • Team placement is guaranteed for those registering before the regular registration deadline (2/24/21) only 
  • Players registering during the late registration period will be waitlisted and placed on teams as spaces are available.
  • A non-refundable $75 late fee will be applied to all late registrations.
    • If a late-registered player cannot be placed on a team due to coaching limitations, their registration fee will be refunded but the $75 late fee is non-refundable.

Refunds

The registration fees below are subject to the standard refund policy that is communicated during your registration process. IF we do not move out of the Purple Tier and cannot play games, no refunds will be provided. We will still continue to practice throughout the spring season and the kids will still have a great time.

Registration Fee Insurance

At the end of your registration, before paying, you'll see an advertisement for Registration Fee Insurance. I only saw this when I did a test registration myself before opening up to the community. We know nothing about this. This seems to be a partnership between AGI, the insurance administrator, and Sports Signup Play, our system administrator. We leave it up to you to investigate this option. We cannot speak to it. If you don't want to do it, you just click "no". 

Little League Age

*At this time, we do not anticipate offering a Challenger, 50/70, or Juniors Division for Spring 2021. That may change so stay tuned.

The Davis Little League is a co-ed league for players Ages 4-12 by 8/31/21. If your child is 3 but turns 4 by 8/31/21, they can play. If your child is 12, but turns 13 this August, they cannot play. Little League age is based on birthdates but turns over on September 1st every year. So your child's age may not match their LL age. Please refer to the new 2021 Little League Age Chart to determine your child's proper Little League Age.

Registration costs


"Mark Breckner" T-ball: $175

Log into your SportsSignUp Play account. You cannot register with the SportsSignUp app on you phone. You must log into your account from a web browser.
