Residency & School EnrollmentUpdated Thursday January 19, 2017 by Chesapeake City Little League.
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.
