Spring Ball: Boundary Requirements

What are the boundaries for West University Little League Spring Ball?

Please view our boundary map.  WULL boundaries are orange.

Another option is to enter your address in the Little League Finder on Little League International's website. Click here!

If I live outside the boundaries, may I still register?

You may register your child in West U Little League if the Little League you are zoned for does not offer play for your child's age and if your residence borders WULL boundaries.  Your registration will be put on a waiting list; after our registration closes, we will determine if we have the capacity to accept your child and will be in touch with you accordingly.

You may also register if your child attends a school located within the WULL boundary and your child is in Kindergarten or older.  If your child is 5 and is in Pre-K at a school where he will continue his education after Pre-K then he is also eligible to register.

You may register for the Junior division if you live outside the boundary.

What types of schools do not qualify?

Home schools, cyber schools, sports-related schools, sports academies, or preschool or after school where a student participates outside of the primary school the player is enrolled.


Please direct eligibility related questions to our Registrar.

What equipment does the league provide?
The league will provide your child with a jersey, practice shirt, hat, and socks. 
What do I need to purchase?
Your child will need a glove, batting helmet, baseball bat, white baseball pants, belt, and appropriate shoes.  It is also helpful to have a bag to carry all of your child's equipment.

A note on bats: Little League International implemented a new baseball bat standard, effective January 1, 2018.  Previously approved bats will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity.  This new rule applies to all WULL divisions except for the Senior division.  Bats approved for use in 2023 will carry the USA Baseball logo. When purchasing a bat for play in the Little League 2023 season, please make sure the bat carries the Baseball USA logo. Click here for more information.

How many kids per team? 
Teams will typically have between 10-12 players.
When and how often will there be practice? 
Most age groups (Varsity and older) will have two practices/week, consisting of one field practice and one batting cage practice.  
When and how often do we have games? 
Most age groups (PeeWee7 and older) will have two games/week. 
How many games will we play in a season? 
Most age groups will play 14-16 games/season for the regular season.  The Tadpole division (Rookie and Varsity) will play fewer games.
What happens if my child cannot make tryouts?
All children will be placed on a team.

Can my twins play on the same team?
All twins will be placed on the same team.  Please include a note when registering that your child has a twin.

Can my daughter play WULL?
All boys and girls who live within the WULL boundaries are eligible to play.  We welcome your daughter to play, and for our Rookie Divisions we will try to put at least 2 girls on a team if possible.  For the PeeWee 7 division and older, team selection is a true draft so we cannot guarantee multiple girls will be on the same team.

Can I request to be on a certain team or with a specific friend?
You may enter any requests during registration.  We attempt to honor requests in the Rookie divisions, but we cannot guarantee them.  For the PeeWee 7 and older, team selection is a true draft and it is hard to honor a coach or team requests
