Mar 2 (Mon): Start of late registration period with $20 late registration fee (for all leagues except Senior League BB & SB)

Please do WMLL & yourself a favor & register on time!  In 2020, WMLL is introducing a $20 late registration fee to encourage on-time reservation & defray the resource costs created by late registrations.  Late registrations significantly delay & disrupt the formation of leagues & teams, the creation & release of schedules, & uniform orders.  Late registrations can also result in larger than desired rosters & the need to turn players away – both undesirable outcomes that can be easily prevented via on-time registration.
WMLL will attempt to accommodate everyone, but late registrants can be placed on a team only if space is available. Each league has a separate maximum capacity.  Once leagues are full, late registrants may choose to be placed on a waiting list in the order their registrations were received (for a $5 non-refundable processing fee).
