Lower Montgomery County, formerly Bethesda Little League has historically had higher prices than MCLL due to the additional field maintenance costs for its program as well as its smaller size.  The 2017 price, while still higher, has been reduced substantially from last year's price with the goal to eventually be under one standard price structure in the future.  Lower county residents are allowed to played in the Upper County divisions that are not offered in Lower County. For 2017 Tee-Ball, Coach Pitch, Minors and Majors programs will be offered in Lower County. Lower County players can still register for Intermediate and Juniors and teams will be geographically formed if sufficient players allow.

Discounts

Family Discount - If you have multiple children you now receive a $25 discount on each registered child after the first one.
Second Division - If you play up to a second division.  Majors/Intermediate or Intermediate/Juniors then you will receive 50% off the lower priced division registration.  Please contact registration@mclittleleague.org if you wish to do this so we can apply the proper discount to your order prior to payment.


Note: A $10 admin fee will be applied to all prices. This non-refundable fee covers costs such as credit card processing and registration fees incurred through the League registration software system.

A $25 late registration fee will be assessed for each order after the registration period closes and if placed on a team.  Wait List candidates will not be assessed the late fee until actually place on a team. The $25 late fee charge may be waived for Juniors due to need to wait on HS tryouts.

League Age
Note that ages are based on League Age.  To determine your League Age use the following calculator

Boundary

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.

Players Age Restrictions:

  • Baseball: The player age follows the Little League Age Determination chart. The age cutoff is being changed from 4/30 to 8/31 but is being phased in gradually.  See the Little League site for more info.

Eligibility

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.

Evaluations

Player evaluations are held for all players that are not returning to the same team in the same division.  Tee-ballers are excluded from evaluations.

Questions

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.

Coaching

If you would like to be either a head coach or an assistant coach of a team then please register as a volunteer. During the Player Registration process you will also be asked if you want to coach. Please indicate your answer there as well as completing the Application to Coach.

Sponsors

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 president@mclittleleague.org with the name and other information so we may contact them.

Safety

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.
