The Fall season runs from Sep 8th - Oct 31st. Games will start after Labor Day, either on Tuesday, September 8 or Saturday, September 12 and will end by Halloween, Saturday October 31.
The Fall season includes play at all division levels.
Fall has a developmental focus and is an opportunity for many to try the next higher division of play. Note: Players who move up from Minors to play Majors in the Fall must still be evaluated and drafted into Majors in the upcoming Spring 2017 season. Only players that played Majors in Spring 2016 are guaranteed to play Majors in Spring 2017. Players are drafted into Majors as individuals, not as a team.
If you aren't sure whether moving up in the Fall is for your child, ask your Spring coach for advice. If you are new to MCLL or you have questions about the correct level to register, feel free to contact our player agent Jason Arnold at email@example.com
Complete uniforms are provided to all players.
Due to our reliance on the granting of permits by Montgomery County we cannot set schedules concretely in advance.
To see the MCLL boundary as well as the dividing line between the Upper County and Lower County divisions see this Google map. If you click on the magnifying glass in the linked page then you can enter your home address into the left side of the screen and it will identify where it is located while still showing the MCLL boundaries. The same process can be done for the player’s school (although we list out which schools fall within either boundary on the “Eligible Schools” page of our website.
In general as a league, our players need to reside or attend schools (public or private but not home schooled) within our boundary in order to play in our league. So if a player lives in Bethesda then he/she would be inside the Lower County boundary and should register there. If that same player attends a private school in Germantown then the parents/player have the option to register the player in either boundary since the school is in the Upper County boundary but they live in the Lower County boundary.
MCLL will operate using one Board of Directors for the entire boundary but Little League International will treat the Upper and Lower County boundaries as separate for charter and tournament purposes. That means that MCLL may have a tournament team for each division that we charter and for both boundaries. So it will be possible that the Upper County All-Star teams could play against the Lower County All-Star teams during the Little League International tournament.
In order to be eligible to play in Montgomery County Little League, players must either reside within the area of the boundary map or attend an accredited school within that area (MCPS or private schools but not home-schooled) unless they already have been granted an exception. Please review the boundary map or the listing of MCPS schools to verify that you are eligible.
Online Player Registration is available.
Thank you for selecting MCLL and good luck in the upcoming season!
Your coach will be your main contact with the league once the season gets under way but you can always contact either the specific division Commissioner or the Board of Directors of MCLL if you have any questions or comments along the way. We encourage any suggestions that you may have so please feel free to send an email. We also are always looking for volunteers to assist in various league functions or tasks that need to be completed.
If you would like to be either a head coach or an assistant coach of a team during the Player Registration process you will also be asked if you want to coach.
Team sponsor fees also help to keep the player registration fees down so if you know of a business or other contact that may be willing to sponsor a team, please contact your coach or firstname.lastname@example.org with the name and other information so we may contact them.
Parents, players and coaches need to be aware of the Maryland law regarding concussions. Included in the Parent's Contract is the disclosure that you have read the information provided regarding concussions and that you will discuss that material with your child so that they may also become aware of the potential issue. Coaches will also need to receive additional training of how to recognize and what to do in case a player shows symptoms of a concussion while participating in recreational sports. See the Concussion Info page for more information about concussions.
