FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

1. When will I know what team my child is on? 
The league will schedule Spring/Fall  Player Evaluations (not for tball) with the draft typically occurring the following week. After the draft is complete, managers will notify each player of what team they are on. Parents and players will be notified by email and/or phone call of their team placement as soon as teams are set.  Check the website for details as things progress.

2. What if I missed registration? 
Once registration is closed, any additional registrations will be put on a waiting list for the appropriate age division.  Because we have to proceed with evaluations and uniform/equipment orders, we cannot add players after registration unless there is a cancellation or opening. We do our best to accommodate for every registered player, and take players from the waiting list whenever possible.

3. How do I know if I am eligible to play in Boerne Little League ?
In order to play in BLL, your child's residence or school they attend must reside within the Boerne Little League Boundaries. To check if your home is located inside BLL boundaries, please check this website: https://www.littleleague.org/play-little-league/league-finder/

4. What does the league provide? 
A player's registration includes their team jersey, hat and coordinating belt. Player is responsible for their own pants and socks (color dictated by coach each season), non-metal cleats, helmet, and baseball/softball glove. Also, it is strongly suggested that all girls wear a face mask. If a player does not have a bat, they can share with other players on his/her team.  PLEASE NOTE that all equipment must meet Little League equipment guidelines: bats must be USA Certified (not USSSA).

5. My child has never played before, what level should he/she be placed?

It is our goal that players are drafted or placed into the appropriate division based primarily on their skill level although there are age restrictions as well. When you are online to register, your account will show applicable divisions for your player. Should you have any questions, please email us at: [email protected] 

6. Why does registration occur so far in advance? 

There is A LOT of planning and preparation that goes into properly setting up all the divisions for 800-1,000 players: coach selection, evaluations (for every division except tball), drafts, rosters, uniform/equipment orders, field scheduling, and so much more. All of our program staff are volunteers and work diligently, in their spare time, to organize a baseball/softball season for a HUGE league. All that said, we appreciate your understanding as we work through all the logistics.

7. When does the season start and end? 

The spring season typically starts early March, with assessments or "tryouts" late January, and ends with the school year. Games are random, Monday-Saturday.  In the fall, first games will typically be after labor day, and end by November 1st. Games in the fall are Monday-Thursday only.
