Boundary

To see the MCLL boundary as well as the dividing line between the Upper County and Lower County divisions, view the Google map below. 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 which schools fall within either boundary on the “Eligible Schools” page of our website).

https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=zHvXGSpN-FW8.kf1rfdlUW_2U&hl=en&usp=sharing

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.

Players Age Restrictions:

  • Baseball/Softball: The player age follows the Little League Age Determination chart. 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.

Coaching

If you would like to be either a head coach or an assistant coach of a team you may register using SSU using the same account setup to register your child. You may do this at the same time you register your child during the Player Registration process.

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) from being prohibited from participating in and/or attending MCLL events.

Questions

Your coach will be your main contact with the league once the season gets under way but prior to then or even during the season you can always send questions to info@mclittleleague.org. We also are always looking for volunteers to assist in various league functions. If you have any interest in volunteering in any capacity please let us know.
