Things to Do and Know in March:

  • Registration data is to be uploaded to the Little League® Data Center. The process can be done as player and volunteer registrations are processed. Each upload will overwrite the previous submission, so it is not necessary to wait until late registration is completed to submit.
  • Leagues utilizing "Sports Connect" to register players will automatically have that information sent to Little League International, helping to fulfill Regulation IV(g) and ASAP Requirement 14. Little League has extended the deadline for ASAP Requirement #14 (Registration Data) to May 7.
  • Submit your league’s 2021 A Safety Awareness Program (ASAP) plan through the Little League Data Center. A best practice is to include your league’s efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 at your league events in your ASAP Safety Plan. You are encouraged to follow your state and local guidance, as well as information from the CDC, and the Best Practices from Little League.
  • The 2021 season’s ASAP Plan submission deadline is April 16, 2021.
  • Share your league’s current bylaws with the District Administrator; and post the bylaws on the your league website.

  • The approximate number of background checks to be completed by your league is based on chartered teams for this season. If you are not sure of the projected number, check your Little League Data Center account.
  • Remember to do background checks on all umpires, regardless of whether they are volunteers or service-provided contractors. Every umpire must be background checked before any games can be assigned.
