Player Eligibility

Player eligibility is based on two factors; the player's league age and the player's residency, based on the geographic boundaries that encompass our league. Below is information for you to be able to determine if your son or daughter is eligible to play in Lafayette Little League.


NOTE ** In 2014, Little League International amended its residency requirements to allow children to play in the local league whose boundaries include the school that child attends.  You will need to complete and submit the "School Enrollment Form" if this applies to your family.


League Age

This table provides information on how to determine if your son or daughter is eligible to play in Lafayette Little League based on their age.   Children between league ages 6 and 14 are eligible to play in LLL.  


NOTE ** A player who is "league age" 5 MUST BE enrolled in Kindergarten (or transitional Kindergarten) to be eligible to play in our Instructional Division.  Please be aware that such a player will be required to play in the Instructional Division again as a six year old without exception.
