Q: Does my child have to pitch in this division?
A: Every player will have the same opportunity to learn pitching skills. However, not every player will be required to pitch.
Q: Can my child play up?
A: Parents may request that their child play up one division level but HLL Divisions and Drafting rules are setup and aligned to assessment based placement . However to play up, there are two factors that come into play
- a player must attend both the higher and lower division’s assessment and be drafted to the higher division. If they are not drafted to the higher division, they must accept playing in the lower division. All player assignments are ultimately determined by the Player Agent and VP of Minors Baseball.
- Little League rules specify the number of players that must be on a team and as a league we must have coaches to support additional teams. The numbers in the upper and the lower divisions must support the move. There is no guarantee that just because your player is good enough, and would be drafted that they will be able to play in the upper division.
Q: Is my child eligible for an All Star or Tournament team?
A: There are tournament teams at this division level. Please see our All Stars link for more information.
Q: Can I have my child play on a team with their friends?

Q: What are the volunteer requirements?
A: Huguenot Little League is an all volunteer organization so there are many ways to volunteer. Help is always needed with registration, team parenting, assisting with pictures, opening day and fun day activities.
