Who can play: Any child born between Sept. 1, 2010, and August 31, 2019, who lives in or goes to school in Glen Ridge or Bloomfield. Proof of residence or school attendance is required.

What you’ll need handy during registration: A completed Little League medical release form, a copy of your child’s birth certificate, and proof of residency.

Where to register: Click here to register via TeamSnap by 2/23/24 6pm

Volunteers needed:

If you’re able to serve as either a coach or assistant coach, we encourage you to volunteer. To do so, please fill out a Little League volunteer application and email it to with a copy of an ID. We’ll need volunteers at all age levels and anyone helping on a team will need to complete a form.


Can I request a specific coach or team, or for my child to play with a friend?

For the 5u to 8u age groups: Yes, there is a spot for such requests in the registration form. Please be sure to make any such requests during registration as they cannot be added later.

For the 9u to 13u age groups: No, these players will have a tryout and be drafted by a coach. Once teams are established, no trades are permitted.

(See the LLB age chart to determine your child’s league age.)

Can my child play up at a higher age group?

No, the league strictly follows the age chart above, regardless of grade or ability level.

When will I find out which team my child is on?

Coaches will get their team assignments by March 10. If you do not hear from a coach, please email for assistance.

When are practices and games?

Practices typically start in mid-March, and are dependent on the coach’s availability and field availability. Historically, the game schedule has been:

5u: Monday, Wednesday, Saturday

6u: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday

7u: Monday, Wednesday, Saturday

8u: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday

9/10u: Tuesday, Thursday

11/12u: Monday, Wednesday

These are subject to change based on the number of registrants in each age group.

What is the general objective for each age group?

5u: Tee-ball and basic fundamentals – how to hold a bat, swing, run to first, catch and throw

6u: Tee-ball with introduction to coach toss

7u: Coach pitch

8u: Kid pitch – if the child pitcher throws 4 balls, the coach finishes the batter until a hit or strikeout

9/10u: Full kid pitch with limited stealing of bases

11/12u: Full kid pitch with unlimited stealing of bases

What equipment does the league supply and what do I need to get my child?

The league supplies the coach a first aid kit, balls, a couple of team bats and helmets. We also supply a team shirt and hat for the 5-8u teams and full uniform for 9-13u. Your child will need their own glove. We generally recommend getting your child their own helmet due to sanitary issues. Most prefer to use their own bat, which must be a USA Baseball bat. If it doesn’t have a USA Baseball sticker on the bat, it is not allowed.
