Frequently Asked Questions

WHEN ARE PRACTICES & GAMES??

-Practices take place during the week, Monday - Friday, anytime after 4:30PM and are determined by the team manager and its coaching staff. All practice are held at area schools or parks, again determined by the team manager and its coaching staff. They are usually around 45 mins to 1.5 long, depending on level of play, weather, and other worldly factors. If a parent has any questions about practices, they can reach out directly to their child's team manager when that is determined. 

-Games take place on Saturdays at anytime and possibly one during the week (after 4:30PM) due to the letting out of school, and volunteers who work. There could be a game played during the week as well. All games (are usually) played at WLL Memorial Park Fields (42 Memorial Park Drive). Games are 1 hr 45 mins. as of right now.

WHAT WILL MY SON OR DAUGHTER NEED EQUIPMENT WISE WHEN PLAYING FOR WLL??

  • Warwick Little League provides players with jersey, pants, socks and hats FOR SPRING ONLY. For fall, players get jersey, hat, and you are to provide your own gray baseball pants, or black softball pants. They are given out before opening day by your manager. We also provide managers with, balls, a tball tee, tball balls, and all helmets with cages on them. Helmets MUST have cages on them, no matter which division your child plays in. All players are to come with a bat for their age division, a bag to carry their equipment in, water bottle and glove. Sneakers for tball age children and cleats for the older divisions. Safety cups are encouraged but not required for those players who choose to wear them. 
  • Catchers come with their own gear (older divisions only)
  • WLL does have a limited supply of equipment we can lend players, you are expected to please return it in the shape it is given to you!
  • To find your childs proper bat size, please see the bottom right corner link on our website for explanation (Under USSSA BAT RULES), for proper height/sizing for your childs age/height


RAIN OUTS:
If your game is RAINED OUT, it will be played the following day! This is the policy, as it takes a lot to move and reschedule games due to umpires and concession stand workers. WLL plays games, usually on M/Wed/Fri/Sat at different times. Practices are usually left for Tues/Thurs/Sunday. Your team manger will be in contact with you about rain out games and practice days/times.

WHY AM I BEING CHARGED A $100.00 FAMILY BOND (for Spring ONLY)??

-All families who register to play for WLL will be charged a $100.00 family bond in Spring ONLY. This bond you will see on check out of your registration page. This bond is per family, not per player (the website will break it down per player). Once one family member donates 4 hours of their time volunteering for WLL, you will receive your bond back (In June for the end of spring season OR In November for the end of fall season). We give it back in check or back to your credit card. Volunteer opportunities include, and are not limited too, managing a team, helping to coach with a manager, field clean up, uniform distribution, concession stand (COVID PERMITTING), and safety officers. 


CAN MY CHILD BE ON THE SAME AS ANOTHER PLAYER?
WLL makes every effort to honor all special requests when it comes to placing players on certain teams with their friends/carpool issues. Tball and Instructional level the rule is, if the request comes in before the draft and uniforms have not been yet ordered, it is possible, but not  guaranteed. This all depends on how many managers and coaches WLL has, and the amount of players on each team. WLL must make sure all talent level on all teams AND the amount of player on each team is balanced and fair. Again all special requests MUST come in before the draft to be considered. After the draft it will not be possible to honor special requests as teams have already been created and uniforms have been ordered.

FOR MINOR LEVEL TEAMS AND ABOVE: Same Rules apply; all special requests MUST be placed prior to the draft as managers draft for competition and have certain coaches in place already, after the draft and EVALS, a player WILL NOT BE MOVED. WLL will be as fair and balanced as they can be!


You CANNOT request to be placed on certain teams because they practice or play games on a day/time that works best for you only. WLL allows managers and the board of directors to set practice days/times and game schedules. Some teams play in pods with other surrounding areas, and you CANNOT request to be placed on a team because they practice or play at a certain day or time. 

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER TO ASSISTANT COACH? DO I AUTOMATICALLY GET CHOSEN TO BECOME ONE?
No, if you signed up on the website that's telling WLL that your'e interested in helping. This position is not guaranteed, unless your team manager tells you so.

WHAT TYPES OF VOLUNTEER OPTIONS ARE OFFERED?
WLL offers field clean ups, field grooming,  concession stand help (COVID PERMITTING) uniform distribution, and equipment assignments as volunteer opportunities. First come, first serve after asking email has been sent out.
