How are ages determined for Little League?

For softball, the Little League age is by year (for example, this year's 12 year olds are born in 2010).  Here is a link to the age calculator:

When does the season start?

Practices for coach pitch and player pitch divisions are scheduled to start the week of March 20, with games starting the week of April 22.
Practices for tee ball will start the week of April 11, with games starting April 30.
Seasons go through the second week of June. 

What nights are practices or games?

The practice schedule for most divisions will come out in early March. Tball and juniors schedules typically will come out in late March.  Teams will have one weeknight (M-Th) and one Saturday practice.  Practices run until games begin; once games begin, there are no further scheduled practices.  After many requests after the 2022 season, there will be a week pause mid-season for all divisions Majors and below for each team to have scheduled practices. Games for tball, coach pitch, and player pitch (minors) consist of one weeknight (M-Th) and one Saturday game.  The weeknight game could vary from week to week.  Majors and AAA games will be held M-F (two per week) with no Saturday games.  Schedules are still to be determined for Intermediates and Juniors as these divisions interleague with other Little Leagues within District 9, but most likely will consist of two games per week also.

Can I request specific days of the week for practices or games?

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a specific day for practices or games.  Practice days will be consistent each week for your child's team, but game days can vary week to week.

Do you need any volunteers?

Yes!  Little League is run 100% on volunteers.  Please check out our Volunteer Opportunities page  to see where you can help.

Do you have a Facebook page?

Yes!  Follow us on Facebook here . It's a great place to find the most up to date RLL information!

What equipment does my child need?

If you cannot secure equipment for your player, please let us know and we will help! We want every child to have a great experience playing ball with the equipment they need to be successful!

Baseball Glove
Baseball Pants (traditionally white, black or grey)
Rubber soled cleats (Intermediates and above can wear metal cleats)
**It is acceptable for tball players to wear tennis shoes in lieu of cleats, and athletic pants in lieu of baseball pants.

Batting Helmets

Provided by RLL (or players may purchase their own):
Team Helmets
Catcher's Equipment

Rockford Little League will provide jerseys and hats for baseball players, and jerseys and headbands for softball players.

What kind of bat should my child buy?

There will be team bats, but some families choose to buy their own bats as well for their kids.  For baseball, all bats need to be USA approved bats and we suggest you buy the 2 5/8" barrel (versus a skinnier one).  You can also ask your child's coach for more specific help on the proper length and weight.  Here is a link with more info on the requirements for baseball and softball.  Little League Bat Rules
