Redondo Beach Little League

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Redondo Beach Little League?

Since 1953, Redondo Beach Little League has provided children the opportunity to develop the qualities of citizenship, discipline, teamwork and physical well-being through our National Pastime, Baseball. By adopting the Little League virtues of character, courage and loyalty, our programs are designed to develop superior citizens rather than superior athletes.

Where are Redondo Beach Little League fields located?

You can find us running around the diamond at:

  • Lincoln Elementary (Anderson Park)
  • Perry Park
  • Dominguez Park
  • Adams Middle School Field

All of our fields are closely located to one another. For detail directions to any of our locations, visit our Field Locations page.

Who can join?

Redondo Beach Little League is open to boys and girls whose league age is 4 through 14. The Tee Ball and Baseball divisions are Co-Ed (Boys and Girls can play). To determine your child's Baseball League Age, please, use Little League International's League Age Calculator.

Why register with Redondo Beach Little League?

Here's some of the reasons why Redondo Beach Little League is a Great League to join: Community - Allows your child to play with their friends and neighbors from Redondo Beach.

  • Great Facilities - the primary fields thru the Little League divisions all have beautiful grass infields (not softball fields), double batting cages with Iron Mike and Jugs Pitching Machines, and terrific Snack Bars.

  • Balanced Teams - the competitive teams, AA and higher, are all subject to an open draft selection process by the Team Managers and overseen by the Player Agent. Why is this important? It helps to ensure that all the league teams within a division are balanced and competitive. The competition helps the kids strive to improve and it better ensures they will have fun and learn throughout their baseball season.

  • Better Practice Opportunities - with all the fields and field lighting we have available, we can provide all teams 1 to 2 weekly practice times on Actual Playing Fields - not just some open grass area. Redondo Beach Little League Coaches do not have to go looking for places their team can practice.

  • Young Ballplayers - We are able to offer Tee Ball for 4 year-olds!!!

  • Player Clinics - We offer Clinics for all Redondo Beach Little League players. 

  • Junior Umpires - We have a Junior Umpire program which adds another element of development and appreciation of the game for the older players.

What are the Residence Requirements for Redondo Beach Little League?

Little League International requires all children registering to reside or attend school within the League boundaries. The Redondo Beach Little League Residential Boundary is the entire City of Redondo Beach (90277 and 90278). The only exceptions to this requirement are those families that can show evidence of previously living in Redondo Beach while the child was enrolled in Redondo Beach Little League or one of the previous Redondo Beach leagues. A waiver would have to be processed with the District in these cases.

When are the Playing Seasons?

The main playing season is in Spring, usually running from February to early June. The opening ceremonies for the Spring season usually take place on the last Saturday in February and includes a mini-carnival and team photographs. The closing ceremonies for the Spring Season typically occur on the first Saturday in June. Players are presented with a trophy and yearbook and afterwards,Teams hold a Potluck Picnic.

Offseason play is, also, available in the Summer and Fall and is available for baseball divisions Rookie (coach pitch) and higher. Summer Ball games take place between mid-July and August, with 2 games per week. Fall Ball games take place between September and November with one game each weekend. Offseason is usually in the form of co-play with teams from other local Little Leagues and is highly recommended to help a child continue to develop and improve their playing skills.

How do I Register my child?

Please visit our Registration Page for all updates and programs offered. Registration usually takes place in October - January for the Spring Season, May-July for Summer Ball, and August-September for the Fall Ball. You may register Online. Follow us on www.redondolittleleague.comFacebook or Twitter @RedondoBaseball for details about registration procedures, fees, dates and locations. Or, watch out for flyers sent home from your child's school (Redondo Beach Schools only) and Banners placed around the city. 

What is the Snack Bar Deposit required at Registration?

The snack bar deposit depends on which option you select below:

  • Volunteer: With this option, you are required to work 2 Snackbar shifts for each child that you Register. You will be required to submit a check for each child to your Team Parent in early February as a deposit for your Snackbar commitment (It will not be cashed). Players will not receive their uniform until the Team Parent receives the deposit check. Upon completion of your shifts, the check will be returned to you. If you do not complete your shifts by the end of the year, the check will be cashed by Redondo Beach Little League.

  • Buyout: If you do not want to volunteer to work in the Snack Bar, you can Buy-Out of your Snack Bar Obligation at the time of Registration by paying an additional fee.

For more information on our Snack Bars, visit our Snack Bar page.

Which Division should I sign up my child for?

Players are selected for Teams based on their Age and/or Experience. Please, check our divisions and registration pages for key details of the age ranges. If, after the first few practices, it becomes apparent that your child is not playing at the same level as their teammates, you may wish to discuss this with your Team Manager and/or the Player Agent to see if another division may be more appropriate.


Can my child play on the same team as their Friends?

You may submit "buddy requests" at registration time. We will try to honor requests in the non-competitive Divisions (i.e., Tee Ball, Rookie and Single-A or Mini Softball), but we cannot make any guarantees. For competitive divisions (i.e., AA and higher), requests are challenging to honor because our goal in team formation is to have balance among all the teams in these divisions.

Does my child need to Try Out?

Players who are Little League Age 8 or older are required to try out so that we can evaluate their current skills and balance the teams. Player Evaluations / Try-Outs are held in January for the Spring Season. They will be evaluated in fielding, throwing, catching flyballs and throws, and hitting.

How often do Teams Practice?

Practices are held at our various locations and vary from team to team and division to division. Practices usually begin about 3-4 weeks before the season opens. They are usually held once per week for about an hour in the Tee Ball, Rookie and Single-A Divisions and once or twice per week for 1 1/2 hours for the older Divisions. This may include practices held prior to games. The practice schedule may alter once the season starts.

How often do Teams Play?

For Spring, the Tee Ball teams will generally play one game per week increasing to 2 after Spring Break with the longer daylight hours. For all other divisions, expect to play 1-2 games per week overall usually one mid-week in the evening and one on the weekend during the day (schedule permitting). A game schedule will be issued before the season starts.

What Uniform/Equipment does my child need?

We provide your child with a terrific team jersey and baseball cap which they get to keep. In addition to the jersey and cap, for the uniform, you will need to purchase cleats, belt, socks, and undershirt. Your Team Manager will tell you what color belt, socks and undershirt to purchase.

Equipment that you will need to get for your child will be a baseball glove, a bat, a helmet and a protective cup. A protective cup is required for boys in Rookie and higher Divisions. You can view the equipment guide on our site.
