WMLL places a very high priority on forming balanced teams to create fair, competitive leagues. To do this, WMLL utilizes a Skills Session and No-Cut Player Draft to establish team rosters.


The mandatory skills session is the critical first step in the process of assembling balanced teams.

At the skills session, after checking-in and receiving a pin-on number, all players in a Little League age (LL Age) group will be put in line.  Players will then rotate through individual fielding/throwing, hitting, and pitching drill stations while the coaches in that league make evaluations for use during the no-cut player draft. After completing these drills, players are free to go.


  • If a player is unable to attend, coach evaluations from previous seasons and/or parent evaluations provided during registration will be used to assess the player’s skill.
  • If your child is unable to attend, it is your responsibility to notify the appropriate league coordinator in advance (see below for contact information).
  • Players must bring a glove, batting helmet & water bottle and wear appropriate clothing & shoes.  Players may also bring a bat and/or batting gloves if they would like.  It is strongly recommended that players label their glove, water bottle, bat & helmet with their name to prevent mishaps.
  • Any players that is playing WMLL spring/summer ball for the first time must also bring a copy of their official birth certificate for age verification.
  • Please arrive on time for the session scheduled for your child’s LL age group and check in at the designated table.  


League drafts take place soon after the skills session and are used to create fair, competitive leagues by distributing more and less skilled players evenly across teams.  Click HERE for league draft guidelines.

Very soon after the draft, players are notified of the team assignment via SportsEngine.  Soon after this, coaches email the families of the players on their team to introduce themselves & provide information on team meetings, practices, etc.


If you have questions about anything related to the skills session, league draft, player notifications or the upcoming season, please contact the appropriate league coordinator.
