As the 2017 season approaches, we would like to inform you of operational updates to the residency and school attendance eligibility requirements.

RESIDENCY AND SCHOOL ATTENDANCE ELIGIBILITY

Beginning with the 2017 season, the following changes will be implemented for establishing residency and school attendance eligibility:

• A school issued report card or performance record will no longer be accepted to establish school attendance.

• Also, residence shall be established and supported by documents containing the full residence which includes parent(s) or guardian(s) name, street address, city, state and zip code information, dated or in force between February 12016 (previous year) and February 12017 (current year), from one or more documents from EACH of the three Groups outlined below:

Group I 
1. Driver's License
2. School records 
3. Vehicle records (i.e., registration, lease, etc.) 
4. Employment records 
5. Insurance documents 

Group II 
1. Welfare/child care records 
2. Federal records (i.e., Federal Tax, Social Security, etc.) 
3. State records 
4. Local (municipal) records 
5. Support payment records
6. Homeowner or tenant records 
7. Military records

Group III 
1. Voter's Registration 
2. Utility bills (i.e., gas, electric, water/sewer, phone, mobile phone, heating, waste disposal)
3. Financial records 
4. Medical records 
5. Internet, cable, or satellite records

IMPORTANT NOTE: Example - Three documents from the same Group (utility bill, cable bill, and bank statement) constitute only ONE document. Players who established "residence" or "school attendance" for regular season and/or tournament prior to the 2016-2017 season using the Player Verification Form, and can produce the form with proper proofs and signatures, will be grandfathered and will NOT need to complete a new Player Verification Form.

Players will be eligible to play with that league only if they reside or the physical location of the school where they attend classes is within the boundaries provided to and approved by Little League Baseball, Incorporated.

I. A player will be deemed to reside within the league boundaries if:

A. His/her parents are living together and are residing within such league boundaries, OR;

B. Either of the player’s parents (or his/her court-appointed legal guardian) reside within such boundaries. It is unacceptable if a parent moves into a league’s boundaries for the purpose of qualifying for tournament play. As detailed later in these rules, the penalty for violation of this rule may, in Little League Baseball, Incorporated’s discretion, result in the disqualification of a player, team or entire league from regular season and/or tournament play.

“Residence,” “reside” and “residing” refers to a place of bona fide continuous habitation. A place of residence once established shall not be considered changed unless the parents, parent or guardian makes a bona fide change of residence.

II. A player will be deemed to attend school in the boundaries if:

A. The physical location of the school where they attend classes is within the boundaries established by the local league. Note: This excludes home schools, cyber schools, sports related schools, sports academies, or preschool or after school where a student participates outside of the primary school the player is enrolled.

School attendance shall be established and supported by a Little League School Enrollment Form completed by a school administrator indicating enrollment for the current academic year, dated prior to October 1, 2016 and with the physical location of the school.
