Updated Monday November 7, 2016 by Davis Little League.

Overview

Davis Little League endorses the National Little League philosophy, and has made only slight modifications to some of the playing rules in an attempt to enhance the playing experience for our children. The following is an excerpt from the National Little League organization: "Little League Baseball is a program of service to youth. It is geared to provide an outlet of healthful activity and training under good leadership in the atmosphere of wholesome community participation. The movement is dedicated to helping children become good and decent citizens. It strives to inspire them with a goal and to enrich their lives toward the day when they must take their places in the world. It establishes for them rudiments of teamwork and fair play."
 

League Structure

DLL offers six level of play, generally split into two divisions. Players will be placed in the American or National division for their level, based on where they live in Davis. Players age 4-12 play in the age and skill appropriate level. For a better understanding of what level your child may play at, refer to the DLL Level/Age chart on the registration information page.
