Eligibility, Costs & Discounts

ELIGIBILITY

WMLL has different eligibility requirements for baseball & softball.  In both cases, however, WMLL adheres to Little League International’s “Age Determination Date” requirements.  Click HERE for a summary table of birth dates & LL ages.

Baseball: Boys & girls Little League aged 7 to 16 (= the player’s age as of August 31, 2022) who live or attend school in the Madison West, Madison Memorial or Middleton-Cross Plains high school attendance areas are eligible to play 2022 spring/summer season baseball at WMLL.

Softball: Girls Little League aged 7 to 16 (= the player’s age as of December 31, 2021) are eligible to play 2022 spring/summer season softball at WMLL.  No residency or school requirements exist for softball.

  • Gender Identity & Participant Disability Policies: WMLL encourages participation of all children, and acknowledges that some participants may require a modification or waiver of WMLL or Little League International (LLI) rules in order to participate in a manner consistent with their Gender Identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the child’s birth certificate or due to the participant claiming rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to request a modification or waiver of the rules in accordance with LLI policy & procedures.

FEES & DISCOUNTS

Player Registration Fee: The standard registration fee for WMLL’s 2022 spring/summer season is as follows:
– $260 for Minor, Major, & Junior League baseball
– $235 for Rookie & Senior league baseball & all softball leagues
The difference between the fees is due to the number of games each of the leagues play.

Postgame Snack Prepayment: A 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 regular season and league playoff games.  The fee is as follows:
– $40 for Minor, Major, & Junior League baseball
– $32 for Rookie & Senior league baseball & all softball leagues
The difference between the fees is due to the number of games each of the leagues play.

Early Bird Discount: All registrations completed before February 7 receive a $20 discount per player.

Late Registration Fee: All registrations completed after the end of the regular registration period on March 6 will be charged a $20 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.


SCHOLARSHIPS

This season qualifying families have two options for scholarship support – WMLL scholarships that cover 75% of registration fees and T-Mobile Call-Up grants that will cover the remaining 25%

  • Qualifying families that combine a WMLL scholarship & a T-Mobile Call Up Grant will have NO out-of-pocket payment for either the spring/summer or fall season!  WMLL STRONGLY RECOMMENDS THE COMBINED WMLL SCHOLARSHIP & T-MOBILE CALL UP GRANT!
  • To be eligible for either of these scholarships, a family must qualify for SNAP, WIC, or Medicaid.
    • Free/Reduced Lunch (FRL) is no longer accepted for eligibility because most school are offering Free/Reduced Lunch to all families, so it is no longer an effective determination of need.
  • IMPORTANT! Please note that families that wish to utilize a WMLL scholarship and/or T-Mobile Grant for lower cost or free registration must apply for & receive the support BEFORE registering.  When doing this, they will receive a scholarship code for use when registering.

WMLL Scholarships: 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:
– $75 for Minor, Major, & Junior League baseball
– $67 for Rookie & Senior league baseball & all softball leagues
– $45 for fall baseball & softball.
The difference between the fees is due to the number of games each of the leagues play.

T-Mobile Call Up GrantT-Mobile, a partner of Little League, has generously created a Call Up Grant program to help qualifying families in need pay their Little League registration fees. The T-Mobile Call Up Grant will fully cover the 25% of registration fees not covered by WMLL scholarships (& do so for both the spring/summer & fall seasons!) Since T-Mobile Call-Up Grant program funds are limited, this program is available for a limited time only.  Please act quickly before funding runs out!

Special Circumstances: Families who need financial assistance but do not meet WMLL scholarship eligibility requirements as well as families that are unable to make the minimum scholarship payment should click below to request special assistance.
