I don't live in Coconut Creek, can I
play in your League?
Coconut Creek Little League serves the communities of Coconut Creek & Margate. Little League Regulations require that only players that reside within a League's boundaries can participate in that League. The only exception to this rule if a participant petitions for a written waiver from Little League headquarters due to hardships or other claims under Regulation II of the Little League Handbook.
Players who live within the league boundaries and move out of the area may continue to play in the local League, as well as any of their siblings, for the remainder of their youth league career. Any player who qualifies under this provision and elects not to participate for a playing season is no longer eligible to be retained for subsequent seasons.
The City of Coconut Creek requires all eligible non-residents to purchase a Youth Sports Card. Purchase of a youth Sports Card does excuse a participant from meeting the League residency requirements
Can my child play with his friend or
for a certain coach?
Players in non-competitive Divisions such as T-ball do not have tryouts and are randomly selected for teams by that Divisions Coordinator. In these divisions players may request to be placed with a particular coach or player. The Division Coordinator will do his best to honor placement requests, but the league cannot guarantee any placement requests except for siblings in the same age group. Player placement requests for the Coach pitch division will be at the discretion of the Coach Pitch Coordinator. Please notate any placement requests on players season application or contact the League Player agent
Players in competitive divisions - Minor League and above are required to participate in player evaluations that will assist team managers in their selections of teams. Because all players are selected via the draft, no player placement requests can be honored for these divisions except for same age siblings.
