2019 Fall Registration Now Open
Dear Westport Families,
Registration is now open for Westport Little League Baseball’s Fall Baseball season. From a weather perspective, Fall is the best time of the year for baseball in New England!
Please register below for the appropriate league based on the grade your little league player will be in when school begins at the end of August. Games are once per week on Saturdays from September 7 through October 26 (November 2 may be used as a makeup date).
NEWLY ADDED:WINFIELD CONCESSION STAND PREPAID ACCOUNTS: In registration, you will now see a new feature to fund a pre-paid account at Winfield that will be usable at the deli or at our concession stands. This will enable you or your child to make purchases at the concession stands at our fields without having to use cash. Your child will not need to shake you down for cash to buy that Gatorade or ice cream!
FALL LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL:
We have attempted to schedule game times on Saturdays that do not conflict with known organized games for the traditional Fall sports, so you can sign up without having to worry about scheduling conflicts!
The goal for the Fall season is for players (beginners to advanced) to continue developing their baseball skills while having as much fun as possible. We always receive a significant amount of positive feedback from the Fall season. It’s a great experience for the children in a more laid back environment.
IMPORTANT: If you wish to coach or volunteer to help out in any way, please select the appropriate option when registering. Additional information about registration and the Fall season can be found below the registration links.

(Please note that age groups for these leagues are subject to change based on final registration numbers. Game times are also subject to change based on registration levels and other conflicts which may necessitate a change to our anticipated schedule.)
CHALLENGER LEAGUE FALL BASEBALL: This league, which focuses on fun and building life-long friendships, is open to boys and girls with mental and/or physical challenges. Challenger also seeks volunteer children age 9 and up to serve as buddies during the games, which will be played on Sundays at White Field in Westport from 11:30-1:00. Please email Challenger Commissioner, Beth Cody, at
with any questions.
WESTPORT YOUTH TRAVEL BASEBALL: We also wish to remind you that Westport Youth Travel Baseball registration will open shortly and can be found [HERE]. Unlike in the Spring, Westport Youth Travel baseball players are not required to play Fall Little League baseball, although we do encourage it.
ADDITIONAL FALL LITTLE LEAGUE INFORMATION:
Teams are expected to be selected and announced by September 3. Team practices will be scheduled by coaches once teams are selected. When registering, please note your child's scheduling conflicts so that the commissioners responsible for populating teams can try to take them into account to avoid schedule conflicts.
REGISTRATION AND FEES:
The registration fee for Fall Little League Baseball is $215 per player for grades 3-7 and $195 per player for grades PK-2. After August 31st, the registration fee increases by $50 per player.
Please note that your registration is not considered complete until payment of the registration fee is made. Please also be aware that the Little League website automatically deletes registrations that are not paid in full within two hours, thereby deregistering your child and preventing us from placing him/her on a team. If you have unpaid registration fees in respect of any summer baseball program, including District teams, your request for registration will be declined, and your child will not be placed on a team until you have paid such outstanding fees.
If you are applying for financial aid, please be sure you have completed the online registration and selected the financial aid option. Your registration will not be deleted for non-payment. In order to pursue financial aid, please contact Westport Human Services within a week to set up an appointment to determine if you are eligible. You can contact WHS via email at:
If your child is playing in one of our programs for the first time, you must mail a copy of his/her birth certificate to Westport Little League. In addition, if this is the first time a member of your family is participating in one of our baseball programs, you must also mail proof of residency (such as a mortgage statement or lease identifying the property, utility or phone bill). Please mail these items to:
Westport Little League P.O. Box 581 Westport CT 06881
Westport Baseball & Softball is a nonprofit organization that, among other things, funds repairs and capital improvements of fields in town. If you wish to support the organization and its programs by making a tax deductible donation, please do so by entering an amount in the donation box on the registration form. This amount will be added to your total at the end of registration. Please note that all donations made via Little League registration will be utilized exclusively to support Little League programs.
If your child is in 6th grade or older and is interested in working as an umpire and earning money this Fall, please sign up in registration.
WLLB manages programs for hundreds of children, and we do our best to form balanced teams. For grades pre-K through 2nd grade, teams generally include players from the same elementary school. The Commissioners of teams in these leagues will make efforts to accommodate teammate and coach preferences indicated in registration when populating teams. However, starting Cap 2 (second grade), we unfortunately cannot honor requests for children to be placed on a particular team or with a specific coach or other player due to the size of our program, the conflicting nature of requests, the need to create balanced teams, the complexity of populating teams and the volunteer nature of our organization. Teams for older players are usually chosen via draft.
COACHES, COACHING REQUIREMENTS AND PAIRING REQUESTS:
We need parents to volunteer their time to coach Little League baseball teams this Fall. Westport Little League Commissioners will choose one pair of coaches only for each team from among those who have volunteered to coach. Once teams are announced, each team may add another (league-approved) assistant coach from its roster. Westport Little League will not accommodate requests for more than two parents to coach together. If you are interested in coaching or volunteering to help run our programs, please check the appropriate box when registering. All coaches will be required to pass a background check, have a valid National Youth Sports Coaches Association (NYSCA) membership and undergo mandatory concussion training prior to the start of the season.
Westport Little League will provide helmets to first time registrants and caged helmets to children playing Westport Little League in grades 3 and higher.
Non-wooden bats must have the “USA Baseball” stamp, and one “USA Baseball” bat will be provided to each team.
Refunds will be issued (less a $25 processing fee) for cancellations that occur before the announcement of team rosters. After team rosters are announced, refunds will only be issued (on a pro-rata basis) for season-ending injuries with a doctor's note.
If you have any questions about our programs, please refer to the tabs along the left side of our website for more information. You can also ask questions by emailing
We hope everyone is enjoying summer and staying cool. Please note that tryouts for the Westport Youth Travel Baseball Fall 2019 season for the 8U-15U teams will be held after school on August 28 and August 29. We have postponed by one day so that the first day does not coincide with the first day of Westport's public schools, as we have done historically, to minimize the burden and conflicts. Players must attend both sessions. Please add to your calendars if your child is interested in trying out for these Travel teams. We will send more information including registration links as the try-out dates approach.
Thank you for everything that you do as parents to enable your children to play Travel baseball. The kids may do the hitting, pitching and fielding in the games, but they likely do not have their own credit cards, drive themselves to the fields and cheer for themselves from the bleachers.
Enjoy the rest of summer, and please continue to come out and support the Westport baseball teams that are still playing in the various summer tournaments.
