Registration for WMLL’s 2021 Fall Ball season is now closed. Registration for the 2022 spring/summer season will begin in January. Click HERE to request a reminder.
Before registering, please be sure to read the important 2021 fall season overview materials (HERE).
WMLL conducts registration via an easy-to-use online system.
- Each player registration should only take about 5 minutes. All questions are straightforward & no special information is needed.
- To ensure that your child is registered properly, please read & answer all registration questions carefully and be on the lookout for autofill mistakes that erroneously populate answers for you!
- If you need financial assistance, you must request scholarship help & receive a scholarship code before registering.
FEES & DISCOUNTS
Player Registration Fee: The standard registration fee for 2021 WMLL Fall Ball is $161 for WMLL players (those living or attending school within the Madison West, Madison Memorial or Middleton-Cross Plains high school areas) and $171 for other players.
Postgame Snack Prepayment: A $24 prepayment for WMLL’s player postgame snack program is also collected during registration. This popular program provides players with a $2 concession stand snack after all games.
Early Bird Discount: All registrations completed before July 1 receive a $15 discount per player.
Late Registration Fee: All registrations completed after the end of the regular registration period on July 18 will be charged a $15 late fee to encourage on-time reservation and defray the resources costs created by late registrations. Also, players that register late can be placed on a team only if space is available (each league has a separate maximum capacity), cannot request a buddy & may receive their uniform late.
Multi Player Discount: After two children from the same family have registered, each additional child from that family receives a $50 discount.
This fall season qualifying families have two options for scholarship support:
WMLL Scholarship: WMLL is pleased to offer scholarship support to families needing financial assistance to pay registration fees. WMLL scholarships cover three-quarters of a player’s registration & snack prepayment fees. Families pay the remaining quarter of these fees – $45 for fall baseball & softball. To be eligible for a WMLL Scholarship, a family must qualify for free or reduced-price school lunches.
WMLL Scholarship + T-Mobile Call-Up Grant: Families that received a T-Mobile Call-Up Grant in the spring (covering the 25% of fees not covered by the standard WMLL scholarship) can combine the grant with a WMLL scholarship to fully cover all Fall Ball fees. The T-Mobile Call-Up Grant program is closed for 2021 & no new grants are being awarded.
In either case, families need to receive a scholarship code in advance for use when registering.

Buddies & Siblings: In the fall season, players in all leagues who register during the regular registration period are able to take advantage of WMLL’s buddy system. The buddy system allows a pair of friends to request that they be placed on the same team. For this to happen, both halves of the buddy pair must identify one another as their ONE buddy during registration. Please coordinate in advance as needed. Siblings in the same league will be placed on the same team automatically unless a parent/guardian requests otherwise. While WMLL will attempt to pair buddies that register BEFORE the late period, it is not guaranteed.
Coaches & Team Coordinators: If you are interested in helping your child’s team as a coach or team coordinator, it is VERY important that indicate your interest when registering. Please also e-mail your interest to the appropriate league coordinator (see contact information below).
Mandatory Service: To keep registration fees affordable, WMLL requires one parent/guardian for each player to volunteer in some fashion every season or opt out of their commitment via a special $50 donation. During registration, you must specify if you would like to opt out or this service. Families must also volunteer to operate the scoreboard & help as a base coach. These are additional duties that neither satisfies the volunteer service requirement, nor are included in the opt out package.
Waivers: During registration you will be asked to read through & acknowledge three important waivers: (1) WMLL General Waiver & Acknowledgements (HERE), (2) Media Release Form (HERE), & (3) Concussion Information & Waiver Acknowledged (HERE)
Payment: At the completion of the registration application, fees (excluding some special scholarship requests) must be paid via credit card or ACH payment. Please consider paying by ACH as it saves WMLL money via reduced processing payments.
Registration Confirmation: Soon after registering you will receive a confirmation email from the online registration system. If you do not receive this confirmation or if you encounter any problems during registration, please contact Kraig Bodie (email@example.com).
Refunds, less a $10 processing fee, will be granted if requested by August 1. No refunds will be granted after this date except for situations involving player injury, a family moving away from the area, or an interruption in the season. In these cases, a partial refund will be provided if less than 75% of the scheduled season is offered. The partial refund will be based on the total fee paid, less a $10 processing fee, $29 non-refundable administrative fee and a prorated charge based on the number of practices / games offered.
