With coach pitch through majors division registrations closed and teams assigned, we are now working on practice schedules! We expect to have them out no later than 1 week before practices begin. Tball, Juniors and Seniors registration is still open. We will begin working on those schedules after registration is closed and all players are rostered!

 Coaches Corner

  • Coach Pitch Divisions – Coaches Clinic and equipment pick up are scheduled for March 18. Stay tuned for more information!
  • AA, AAA, Majors Divisions - Equipment pick up will be March 18. Stay tuned for more information!
  • TBALL: WE NEED MANY MORE HEAD COACHES AND ASSISTANT COACHES! SIGN UP AT!!! We’d love for each team to have one head coach and 2-3 assistant coaches! No experience necessary! More coaches per team = more drills ran at practice = less idle time = more reps = HAPPY KIDS!!!

What gear does my player need?
Your child will need to have his or her own ball glove, baseball/softball pants (traditionally white, black or grey), rubber soled cleats (Intermediates and above can wear metal cleats), batting gloves (if desired), and an equipment bag/backpack (if desired). Rockford Little League will provide jerseys and hats for baseball players, and jerseys and visors for softball players. There will also be team helmets, bats, and catching equipment although players are welcome to bring their own if preferred. Softball players: infielders MUST wear face masks. We strongly encourage outfielders to wear masks, but it is not required.
**Please label ALL of your players’ gear so we can return it to you promptly when your child loses something!

In response to the 2023 end of season survey, we’re changing things up for the 2024 season! No official signups available yet, but here’s what you can expect for this season:

  • Each family should plan on volunteering for 2 hours during the season. RLL runs on volunteers!
  • To combat long lines at the concession stand, each team will be responsible for covering a shift a couple times during the season.
  • Each team will be assigned to a field for field clean up (APRIL 13/14). We’re up to +50 teams and 10 fields this season!
  • Each team will be assigned to a field for the duration of the season and the expectation is to pick up trash, clean dugouts (trash), report unsafe conditions, rebuild mounds (fields 1-4), etc.

We will have more updates on this as we get closer to the start of the season. There are MANY other volunteer opportunities available as well. Email us at [email protected] and we will be happy to put you to work!


 We LOVE our RLL Families! Please reach out to us if you have any questions. We are always looking to improve and receive input from our families. You can email us at [email protected]. Please give us up to 48 hours to get back to you; we’re all volunteers here! Follow us on Facebook for the most up to date information! is also a great source for information.

 We look forward to a great 2024 season and can’t wait to see everyone on the fields again soon!
