Frequently Asked Questions 

Q: Will there be a team for my player's division this season 

While it is our goal to provide year-round baseball and softball for our players. The registrant count determines the availability of teams.  As such, we do not have an accurate idea of what divisions will have a sufficient amount of players for each Season until closer to the registration end date.  If we are unable to field a sufficient amount of teams in a division, we will elect not to host games for that division.  

It is much more helpful to give us an idea of projected registration if you register your player early.  You can Register now by clicking the "Registration" tab above!

Q: What Kind of Equipment Does My Player Need?

The League will provide bats and helmets for player use (though you are welcome to purchase your own!)
Players are required to have a glove and cleats (T-ballers can certainly get away with tennis shoes)

When the mission is safety, injury prevention is the first step! Please see below for Equipment Safety Requirements!

Helmets : Must meet NOCSAE specifications and standards (affixed with NOCSAE symbol).

Bats : USABat Standard bats must be used in the Little League Major Baseball Division and below. Either USABat Standard bats  or  BBCOR bats must be used at the Intermediate (50/70) Baseball and Junior League Baseball Divisions. At the Senior League Baseball Division, all bats must be meet the BBCOR standard.

Catcher’s gear : Catchers must wear a catcher’s helmet (with face mask and dangling throat protector; skull caps not permitted per Little League), chest protector (long-model or short-model), and shin guards. Male catchers must wear a protective supporter and cup at all times.

Protective cups : All young men should wear protective athletic cups while playing baseball, and all male catchers are required to wear them.

Sports bras: All young ladies should wear supportive athletic undergarments.

Balls : Only official Little League balls will be used during practices and games.

Face mask/chin guard for helmets : In order to use a helmet attachment in Little League play, the helmet manufacturer must provide a notice indicating that affixing the protector to the helmet has not voided the helmet’s NOCSAE certification. That notice must be shown to the umpire prior to the game. (Per Little League Regulations)

Q: When Are Practices and Games? How Many Practices/Games Are There Each Week?

Teams typically practice 1-2 times per week, with 2 games per week, one during the week and one on Saturday. (Tball is the exception, playing only on Saturdays. Games will be played at one of 3 locations: Lake Gregory Education Center, Harich Field in Twin Peaks, or Charles Hoffman Elementary School. Practices locations and times will be determined by each team's manager.

Q: I Want to Volunteer, But I Am Confused About What Is Required. Can You Help?

Thank you for your interest in giving your time and energy to the kids in our community! Much of this information is available on "Safety" section of our website.

In short, there are certain requirements put in place by Little League International, as well as California State law, that must be satisfied before an individual can volunteer.  To make sure that these minimum requirements are met, Mountains Little League requires that the following be completed before a volunteer may interact with players on the field:

  • A Completed Volunteer Online Application (Available On Our Website) - This lets us know about your interest and how to contact you!
  • Completion of PureBaseball Coaching Certificates "A" and "B" - Find links and more on the "Safety" tab of our website!
  • Completion of a Concussion Awareness Course - Find the link on our "Safety" tab of our website!
  • Completion of a Sudden Cardiac Arrest Course - Link also in our "Safety" tab above!
  • A Completed Background Check - You will get the website and login information once you have completed your Safety/Coaching Certifications

For more information about volunteering, please reach out to our Coaching Coordinator.
For more information about the safety clearance process, please reach out to our Safety Officer.

Volunteers who have been cleared for the immediately prior Spring Season are not required to complete these requirements again.

Can't wait to see you on the field!
