About Lake Wylie Little League

Established in 2007, Lake Wylie Little League is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  We are a 100% volunteer run organization affiliated with Little League International, offering Lake Wylie SC area youth baseball for regular season play and access to the world’s largest youth sports tournament for more advanced players with the Little League World Series that takes place each summer. Lake Wylie Little League's boundary resides within South Carolina District 8 and Little League's Southeast region. Our boundary map can be viewed here --> Lake Wylie Little League Boundries


When does registration open?

  • Spring Season registration opens online in early-mid January and typically runs through mid-February.

  • Fall Season registration opens online early/mid July and runs through October.

Registration is available through our online registration portal.  To register, click on the registration link on our homepage during open registration periods.  You must have an account, or create one using the link at top of this site, in order to register.  If you already have a Dick’s TeamSportsHQ account, you can login with that account and no need to create a new one.


What is the cost to participate?

  • $65 per player for Tee Ball Division
  • $95 per player for all other Baseball Divisions
  • $10 family discount (must register siblings at same time for discount to apply)

Fees are subject to change. The Board of Directors budget monies each season to cover national charter and district fees, insurance, field rentals, equipment, umpires, uniforms, and continued maintenance of our facilities.  100% of the net proceeds are directly invested in the operation and enhancement of our programs.


What equipment does my child need?

Registration fees include team uniform (hat and jersey) for every player.  Pants, belt, and socks are not included as part of the team uniform. Pant color is determined by coaches after selection.  Team bats, balls, helmets, and catchers gear is provided by the league.  Note that players may share team helmets, however many players in upper divisions purchase their own batting helmets.

  • Players need a baseball glove and cleats; tennis shoes can be worn in the Tee Ball division.
  • Parents may opt to purchase their own bats and helmets, however the league does provide some as part of a team equipment bag to each coach.  Bats can be very expensive and must comply with Little League Rules --> Little League Bat Requirements

All Stars

At the end of the Spring Season All Star teams are formed to participate in the District 8 Tournament. Age groups are established by Little League International.  LWLL, upon approval of the Board, will attempt to field a team in all Little League approved age divisions. The selection process for players, managers and coaches is decided by our coaches as a group. 

  • Teams are announced June 1st and begin practices immediately to prepare for District games later in June.
  • Section tournaments are typically held in mid-July, and State tournaments are in late July.
  • All age divisions have the opportunity to advance to the State tournament.  
  • In addition, Intermediate division All Stars each have the opportunity to advance to State, Regional, and Little League's International Tournament. 

All Stars is a very enriching event in the lives of our players and coaches, which requires dedication and commitment beyond the normal requirements of regular season. Tournament play is intensely competitive and requires more focused, committed effort. Players commit to represent LWLL to the highest standards.

  • Give 100% at every practice and game.
  • Be available and attend a minimum of 75% of scheduled team practices.
  • Restrict high-risk activities, eat healthy, hydrate, and get plenty of sleep.
  • Encourage and support teammates in every situation, win or lose.
  • Exemplify high standards of sportsmanship and character.  Disrespect towards coaches, teammates, umpires, or parents will not be tolerated; including showboating successes of displays or temper with disappointment.

What are the division age groups?

    • Tee Ball (ages 4-6)
    • Coach Pitch (ages 6-9)
    • Minors - Player Pitch (ages 9-10)
    • Majors (ages 11-12)
    • Juniors (ages 13-14)

LWLL's goal is to provide all players an opportunity to learn the game in a safe environment, develop skills, and most importantly HAVE FUN. Division age groups are established by Little League and the LWLL Board of Director's policies.  We are committed to ensuring player development at the appropriate level and maintaining overall player safety, and a competitive balance among teams in each division.

 


How is league age calculated?

A player's league age is determined by Little League International. League age is calculated automatically during registration based on a players DOB.  

Current year age charts can be found under insert link here.

More information regarding age determination for Baseball divisions can be found here on the Little League website. 


How are the teams formed?

Our registration numbers vary each season by available divisions and age groups.  Teams are assembled by a combination of coaches, league player agents, and the Board of Director's policies.  Selection to divisions is based on team counts, the player evaluation, and draft.  We are committed to ensuring player safety, and a competitive balance among teams in each division. 

  • Players are drafted by coaches in all divisions (except Tee ball).  

 

The league will attempt to honor requests for coaches and/or friends at the Tee Ball level, however they cannot be guaranteed.  LL rules require that teams be assembled each season(Minors, Coach Pitch, and Tee Ball), thus do not allow teams to have the same players/coaches automatically from season to season.  Some players may end up on a team from a prior season, however it must occur naturally through the draft/selection process.  

Fielding teams in all divisions cannot be guaranteed.  The Board of Directors will determine final divisions and team counts based on number of registrations received and available facilities/fields.


Do you offer scholarships to players?

Yes, thanks to our generous sponsors, we are able to offer partial and full scholarships each season.  To inquire about obtaining a scholarship, please [email protected] and a league volunteer will contact you.


What is the refund policy?

We understand that unusual circumstances may result in a player needing to withdraw for a particular season.  The following refund policy has been established.

  • If you cancel prior to registration ending, we will refund your registration fee minus a $25 admin fee per child.  
    • If you cancel after registration ends you will receive a $25 refund per child.
