Team Rosters and Game Schedules
All parents/players who have previously played at WMLL will be contacted by the coach of their player’s team once rosters are set (Aug 20). Your team’s coach will set up a team meeting to distribute uniforms, game schedules, etc. Game schedules will be posted on the WMLL website (wmll.org) and bulletin board at the fields as soon as they are finalized (Aug 20). Team rosters will also be posted on the bulletin board (Aug 20) at WMLL prior to the coaches meeting (rosters are NOT posted online per Little Lg guidelines).

NOTE: In the event of inclement weather on a meeting day above, please check the WMLL Field Conditions page for meeting status and makeup time or call the Field Conditions hotline (608-274-6556) for this information. In most cases, the makeup meeting will be the following day.
