It is unacceptable if a parent moves into a league’s boundaries for the purpose of qualifying for tournament play. “Residence”, “reside”, and “residing” refers to a place of bona fide continuous habitation. A place of residence once established shall not be considered changed unless the parents, parent, or guardian makes a bona fide change of residence.

Residence shall be established and supported by documents from THREE of the following categories* (please note that bringing 3 utility bills is only one document.  Please bring 3 different types) to determine residency of such parent(s) or guardian:

  • RESIDENCY AND SCHOOL ATTENDANCE ELIGIBILITYBeginning with the 2017 season, the following changes will be implemented for establishing residency and school attendance eligibility:

School Attendance Option (new for 2014 and beyond):

If your child attends school within the Southwest Little League boundaries, they are now allowed to play for SWLL regardless of where they actually reside.  Here is the actual Little League rule:

“School attendance” refers to the (place) physical location the player in question attends (primary) school during the traditional academic year. Once established, a location of school attendance shall not be considered changed unless the child is enrolled and attends another school or is no longer enrolled in the previous school.

School attendance shall be established and supported by a document indicating enrollment for the current academic year, dated prior to October 1, 2014 and with the physical location of the school, from ONE of the following categories to determine school attendance by such player:

  1. Official/Certified School enrollment record 
  2. School issued report card or performance record
  3. A Little League issued school attendance form completed by the principal, assistant principal or administrator (can be downloaded and filled out now)
