Scholarships

MCLL is committed to promoting baseball and softball in our community and believes all children should have the opportunity to participate in our programs. Montgomery County Little League (MCLL) will not deny any child a chance to play baseball or softball due to financial hardship. Full or partial scholarships are available.

Boundary & Eligibility

To see the MCLL boundary and the dividing line between the Upper County and Lower County divisions, view the Boundary Map. If you click on the magnifying glass on the linked page, then enter your home address on the left side of the screen, it will show whether your address falls within MCLL boundaries. The same process can be completed for the player’s school. A list of schools that fall within either boundary can be found by visiting the Eligible Schools section of our website.

In general, our players need to reside OR attend school within our boundaries 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 within the Lower County boundary.

Player Age Restrictions

  • Your player’s league age is determined by the Little League Baseball® and Little League Softball® Age Charts. The dates for baseball and softball are different, but each determines the division in which your Little Leaguer will play this season. The Age Determination Date for a Little League Baseball player is the actual age of a child on August 31 of the current year. The Age Determination Date for a Little League Softball player is the actual age of a child on December 31 of the previous year.

Coaching

We're always looking for volunteers! If you would like to be either a manager or an assistant coach, you may register using TeamSnap.

Health & 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. A copy of MCLL's "A Safety Awareness Plan" (ASAP) and COVID-19 Return to Play Plan can be found here. Additional health and safety protocols will be implemented, as necessary, to comply with State, County, and LIttle League COVID-19 health and safety requirements. Prior to registering and participating in any MCLL-sponsored practice, game, clinic, or event participants are responsible for reviewing all health and safety protocols. Subject to the discretion of the MCLL Board of Directors, failure to abide by any Little League requirement, MCLL's Code of Conduct, or any health and safety protocol may result in a participant (player or spectator) being prohibited from participating in and/or attending MCLL events.

Questions

Please check our FAQ page if you have questions. Your coach will be your main contact with the league once the season gets underway but you can always send questions to info@mclittleleague.org.
