It is important for all Little League® volunteers and parents to be familiar with the most up-to-date version of Little League’s Official Regulations, Playing Rules, and Operating Policies. These rulebooks, published in the fall for all divisions of Little League Baseball®, Little League Softball®, and the Little League Challenger Division® provide the structure and support for local leagues and Districts to provide a meaningful Little League experience for all children in their community.
Beginning with the 2018 season, non-wood and laminated bats used in the Little League (Majors) and below, Intermediate (50-70) Division, Junior League divisions, and Challenger division shall bear the USA Baseball logo signifying that the bat meets the USABat – USA Baseball’s Youth Bat Performance Standard.

The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) is here to help you be the best coach that you can be. When you take an NCCP clinic, you'll gain baseball technical abilities as well as leadership and decision-making skills. NCCP training will open doors to new opportunities in coaching and in life.
My focus with this website is in providing the best youth baseball coaching information that I can. I want you to become a successful youth baseball coach and just as importantly I want you to enjoy coaching and being part of a team. This website is dedicated to helping you provide the best positive learning environment for your team. While I get a lot of feedback from high school coaches that the site has valuable information for them, the primary intent is to help the youth coach get started on a positive note and continue to improve their coaching ability as they hopefully continue coaching over the years. ˜ Don Edlin - Owner
