Welcome to the Rancho Santa Fe Little League!  

Rancho Santa Fe Little League (RSFLL) is an all volunteer, non-profit organization that since 1964 had provided youth baseball to our community, for all boys and girls between 4 and 12 years of age.

RSFLL operates under the guidelines of the Rules and Regulations of Little League Baseball Incorporated of Williamsport, Pennsylvania.


Explanation of Divisions

Majors Division – All 12 year olds (unless waivered down to AAA), most 11 year olds and very few of the highest level 10 year olds.  This means that a participant who will be 13 years old on May 1 or later, is eligible to play that year; a participant who will be 13 years old on April 30 or earlier will not be eligible for either local league play or tournament play at any time during the calendar year in question.


This division is for players who are prepared for a very high level of play. The pitching is generally quite fast and the speed of the game is rapid. There are play-time requirements that include all players playing a minimum of 3 innings in a defensive position, but no requirement for any player to play an infield position. Eligibility to play in this division requires all players attend an evaluation/tryout and each player must be willing to commit 4 days per week to baseball, which includes a minimum of 2 games and two practices.

AAA Division – Any 12 year old who has waivered down. All 11 year olds who were not drafted onto Majors teams (unless waivered down to Minors), most 10 year olds and very few of the highest level 9 year olds.

This division is for players who are prepared for a moderately high level of play. The pitching will be relatively strong, but generally unrefined. There are play-time requirements that include no player sitting out a 2nd inning until all players have sat out once. In addition, there is a requirement that every player play at least 2 innings in an infield position during each game.  Many players will have a chance to pitch during the season, but 12 year olds in this division are not allowed to pitch. Eligibility to play in this division requires all players attend an evaluation/tryout and each player must be willing to commit 4 days per week to baseball, which includes a minimum of 2 games and usually two practices.

Minors – Any 11 year old who has waivered down. All 10 year olds who were not drafted onto AAA teams, most 9 year olds and very few of the highest level 8 year olds.

This division is for players who are prepared for a moderate level of play. The pitching will be less developed and generally quite a bit slower than the divisions above. There are playtime requirements that include no player sitting out a 2nd inning until all players have sat out once. In addition, there is a requirement that every player play at least 3 innings in an infield position during each game. There is also a requirement that every child who desires has a chance to pitch during the season, but 11 year olds in this division are not allowed to pitch. Eligibility to play in this division requires all players attend an evaluation/tryout and each player must be willing to commit 3 days per week to baseball, which includes a minimum of 2 games and one practice.

Rookie (Machine Pitch) – All 7 and most 8 year olds
It is a higher level of play than T-Ball. Players play all positions during the season and all players are in the field each inning.  Machine pitch rules. This division will hold several practices before the season, and two games per week.

Instructional (T-Ball) – All 4, 5 and most 6 year olds
It is an introductory level of play. Players do not attend evaluation/tryouts. Players play all positions during the season and all players are in the field each inning.  T-Ball rules.  This division will hold one practice before the season, and two games per week. The games will be on Saturdays and one mid-week day tbd.

Age and Address Verification
Age and address verification is REQUIRED for all players. Players that are new to RSFLL (i.e., either they are just starting T-Ball or did not play in our Spring program the year before) must have the verification done prior to the start of Spring season. The league will announce when verification will take place.  For verification, you must bring a certified birth certificate with embossed seal (no photocopies will be accepted) or your child’s passport so that your child’s age can be verified. You must also bring three (3) proofs of residence (e.g., drivers license, voter’s registration, or school record – see complete list below of acceptable proof) so we can verify that you live within RSFLL's Boundaries.

The age and address verification session is NOT required for registration.

Little League requires one item (and only one item) from any 3 or more of the following categories to demonstrate proof of residence:
1. Driver’s License
2. Voter’s Registration
3. School records
4. Welfare/child care records
5. Federal records
6. State records
7. Local (municipal) records
8. Support payment records
9. Homeowner or tenant records
10. Utility bills (i.e., gas, electric, water/sewer, phone, mobile phone, heating, waste disposal)
11. Financial (loan, credit, investments, etc.) records
12. Insurance documents
13. Medical records
14. Military records
15. Internet, cable or satellite records
16. Vehicle records

Note: Example – One item – and only one item – may come from any one category. In other words, three utility bills (three items from No. 10 above) will not suffice to establish residency since they come from only one category. To satisfy the proof of residency requirement, there must be a document from two other categories.
