All sanctioned little leagues have boundaries that are established and approved by the Little League International organization. The boundaries are set when the local Little League is established and do not follow school boundaries.
The Little League operation manual states that each league has:
…actual boundaries of the area from WITHIN which it shall select players. Only those participants whose residence is within the boundaries of the league shall be eligible to participate.
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 parents (or court appointed guardians) resides within such boundaries.
It is recommended that the league require some proof of residence within the league’s boundaries at the time the player registers. Players and their parents/guardians are advised that a false statement of residency may lead to ineligibility to play Little League Baseball or Softball. Under NO circumstances does ANY person have the authority to grant a waiver that allows a child to play in a local Little League program IN ANY DIVISION, when that child does not qualify under these residency requirements.
