Registration Information & Documents Required / Clarifications
1. ) Birth Certificates
Every player is required to have a copy of his/her Birth Certificate on file with the league for the Spring season.
In the Spring season, Birth Certifificates must either be on file or be submitted. If you submitted one previously in a Spring season, you do not need to resubmit. The online registration process will specifically tell you that your registration is not complete until we receive a copy of your Birth Certificate. Please remember the online system is programmed to state that, if you have already submitted a Birth Certificate, you DO NOT have to resubmit. In the Spring season No registration is complete without a birth certificate either being on file or submitted for new players to the league.
If registering online, copies can be scanned and emailed to email@example.com, or mailed to:
P.O. Box 1101
Richmond, Texas 77469
2. ) Proof of Residency
For Spring season players proof of player residency will be checked annually by the league. Every player is required to bring 2 separate proofs of residence (utility bill, driver's license, insurance proof, etc.) to in person registration or the first team meeting.

7. ) Uniforms:
In Spring season, registration fees will provide for player shirt, pants, belt and hat. During online registration or via in-person sign-up you will be asked for your child's shirt & pant size. Due to timing of teams forming and play starting, team jerseys (T-Shirt) are a priority for the league to insure they arrive by start of play. If you require a different jersey size other than the one you order and the league cannot find another player to switch with we can order an additional shirt for a fee (approximately $25 tbd as required).
As a guide only, use the charts below to select the most appropriate uniform sizes during the registration process:
8. ) Applications:

Additionally all volunteers wishing to Manage or Coach a team will also be required to complete a Manager/Coach Application. These requirements are not voluntary and every volunteer will be required to have a completed and verified application on file prior to interacting with any League activities where children are involved.

For questions about try-outs contact a Player Agent. The try-out time preference will be asked during registration. Once a try-out time group fills up, that option will be removed for subsequent registrants.
Try-out instructions are very basic, each child will be evaluated for fielding, throwing and hitting. When you arrive at the park please check-in at the Board/Umpire Room located directly behind the concession stand. You will be given instructions from there on how to proceed.

If you want your child to "play up" or "play down" you must register in the appropriate age group online then request the desired division (playing up or playing down) from your Player Agent and or Division VP.
See the Division by Age guideline in the right column of 2013 Age Chart. If you feel your child should be in another Division, you must register in the appropriate Division based on age and request a "Play Up or Play Down" permission from your Player Agent and Division VP.
13. ) Coaches, Team Moms, Other Volunteers
All volunteers who will interact with the children at practices or games must complete the LL International Volunteer application. It is provided above in Section 8. Once completed it must be processed by the League Secretary. Please submit those directly to the League Secretary here.

14. ) Online Registration Link
Select the link below to register your child. Online Registration begin November 25th. Link will not work till then.
Question: The online registration system said that my registration was not complete because of a birth certificate, is my child registered?
Answer: Your child is registered. If you have played previously at Lamar and submitted a birth certificate, it is on file and you will not have to submit again. If you are new to the League and have not submitted a birth certificate you must do so before your child can play.
Question: Can my child be on the same team as another child?
Answer: Contact your Player Agent or Division VP, their contact information is posted on the Board of Directors page. In TeeBall and Machine A these requests are addressed as often as possible. Starting in Machine AA - Juniors, there is an actual player draft and these requests cannot be addressed. The coaches can draft or trade for the players.
Question: Can I pick my child's coach?
Answer: No, you can request a Coach but due to the inability to facilitate all potential requests there are no guarantees. You make a request during sign up or contact your Division VP.
Question: I want my child to play up or down from their age group. The registration system will not let me register in the Division I want. What do I need to do?
Answer: For safety and quality reasons we want all children to initially register in the appropriate age group as outlined by the Board of Directors and Little League Baseball. You may request your child to play up/down directly by contacting your child's Division VP or Player Agent.
Question: If my child played last Spring and I used the online registration system, do I have to create a new account?
Answer: No, you do not require a "new" account. You will need to remember the email address you used previously at a minimum as well as hopefully your password. You can request your lost/forgotten password if you utilize the email address you used to register previously. If that fails you may need to create a new account.
