What happened to the Sluggers Division for League Age 6 Players?

Is the Early Bird Discount available this year?

The Early Bird Discount was discontinued in previous seasons.   There is still a discount for registering multiple players for families.  The discount is $10 per additional player.   The savings from the Early Bird Discount and additional donations to the league will be used to fund scholarships for players in financial hardship.

Are scholarships available to cover registration fees?

Scholarships are offered for players who are in financial hardship.  Little League believes that no child should be denied the right to play.  Scholarship requests should be directed to [email protected].

How do I volunteer as a Manager or Assistant Coach in 2023?  

Our league is 100% volunteer driven, and volunteer Managers and Coaches are extremely important in order to provide our kids with a successful season of development. We need your help. Please consider volunteering to coach this season. You will have to option to indicate your desire to volunteer as a Manager or Assistant Coach during the registration process.  

If you have already registered a player and wish to sign-up to volunteer later you can do so from your Account Page or from our Volunteer Opportunities page.

I don’t want to manage a team or assist as a coach. Are there other ways to volunteer?  

We’ll be reliant on parent volunteers in 2021 more than ever before. Incredibly important positions include Team Parent/Culture Liaison, Scorekeeper, Safety Volunteer, and volunteers to help us fundraise at our Snack Bar. You can register to volunteer during the registration process. 

If you have already registered a player and wish to sign-up to volunteer later you can do so from your Account Page or from our Volunteer Opportunities page.

I can’t volunteer at games or for a team. Can I help Snoqualmie Valley Little League financially?  

Please consider donating to SVLL.  You will have the opportunity to donate during the registration process. If you are in a position to do so, please consider helping. Your support can be the difference in providing scholarships and offsetting the cost of uniforms, equipment, league fees, field maintenance, and much more. You’ll see additional giving campaigns in the weeks ahead on our social media platforms. We ask that you share those widely with your family, friends and community.  The greatest reward of all will be to know you’ve directly contributed to the positive success of a child in our community.   

Does SVLL perform Background Checks?

We do perform background checks per Little League Guidelines.   Little League® regulations require any volunteer with repetitive access to children to consent to a national criminal background check, which includes a check of the National Sex Offender Registry database.  A few weeks before the season starts we will send out the background check request to Volunteers.  

I have a specific question about registration, who should I contact?

For registration questions, please contact: [email protected].   

What days of the week will be child be playing or practicing? I'd like to know before I register.

It depends on the program your child is enrolled in, as well as other variables like the coach's intended schedule. We will post a rough guideline of days and times by Division when the High Level schedule is available. 

Does my child have to participate in skills assessments? How do skills assessments work?

Skills assessments are described in full on the Skills Assessment page.  In short, they are only for Upper Division Baseball and Softball.  Farm League does not hold assessments.  Last season we were able to use the High School turf fields for assessments and will try to do that this season as well.  Assessments are held to assist with the Drafts for Upper Division teams (AA through Majors).   Assessments help us create competitive, well-balanced teams. 

If you are requesting to Play Up then assessments are mandatory to be considered for a higher division.   If a player is unable to attend assessments, then they will be placed in their default age Division.   We will evaluate how many players are unable to attend our regularly scheduled assessments dates and determine if an additional alternative date is needed. 

Assessments are currently scheduled for 1/21/2024 with potential alternate dates the week of 1/22 or 1/28.

Can I request my child to Play Up or Play Down a Division?

For Upper Division during registration there is an option to select Play Up or Play Down as well as a comment field.   Play Up decisions will be based on assessments, the number of teams in each Division, and the League Drafts.   Upper Division teams are created based on a Draft.   AA and AAA have an automated snake draft based on assessment scores.  Coast and Majors are based on a live draft by Managers. 

For Farm League Play UP requests have been reinstated in 2024.   Players league age 4 or 5 must play at least one year of Tee Ball and all players must play at least one year of Single-A.   Players requesting to Play Up from Single-A to AA must attend Upper Division assessments.   Placement on a AA team will be based on assessment scores and the number of teams in the Division.   AA uses an automated snake draft based on assessment scores. 

More detailed assessment information will be sent to all players required to attend prior to assessments.

May I request my child to be on a specific team or with specific friends/family?

For upper divisions, team make-up is determined via assessments and then a draft to create well balanced, competitive teams.

Farm League has adopted a policy of not granting player requests for specific coaches/play together requests.  The league will make exceptions for extenuating circumstances.

We will be assigning players by School identified in the registration process, to attempt to keep players/teams local. For students without a school identified we will attempt by home location.

The only exceptions to this rule are:

  1. Siblings will play on the same team, unless otherwise requested.
  2. Managers will always have their child on their team, unless otherwise requested.
  3. Managers may request up to two additional children to play on their team.  Normally this is for assistant coaching assistance. 
  4. Requests made for the purpose of player safety. Any such request will need to be reviewed and approved by the Farm League Director and League President.

SVLL is a volunteer ran organization and play together requests had become much too burdensome to bear and left us with unbalanced teams.

The only way to guarantee play together would be to manage a team. We provide a ton of resources and assistance, making the job fun, easy and rewarding. We typically have trouble finding Managers/Coaches at the lower levels due to a fear of ‘not knowing enough’. My best advice is that you only need to know more about baseball than a 5-year-old. 😉 We also allow co-coach/managing at the Farm League level, where multiple parents take the role of Manager, this helps in instances where scheduling is more difficult (i.e. a parent can't make all practices/games, but between 2 or 3 they can cover them all).

If you select the same school during the registration process, you have a higher chance of being together, but it’s not guaranteed in the cases where we get more than one team worth of players from the same school, for instance.

During player registration, there is a section which includes forms/data discussing Residency & School Attendance.  Do you have to complete the Residency & School Attendance Eligibility Requirements (form uploads) to complete registration?

SVLL does track eligibility to play in our league based off of School attended or home address.   If either is within the SVLL league boundaries, then your players are eligible to play.   We Do Not require parents to upload forms of proof for the regular Spring season.

For All-Star play proof of SVLL eligibility is required.   We will gather that information during All-Star practices and before tournament play.  If a player is determined to be out of the SVLL boundary then they will be ineligible for All-Star play.   The only exception to this is if we have teams that are combined from multiple leagues that are approved by the district.
