Q. Which division would my child play in?

Q. What if my child has never played baseball before?
A. Citrus Little League welcomes all levels of experience. We have wonderful coaches that know how to work with all skill levels.

Q. What does the league provide when I register my player? What do I need to purchase for my player?
A. For all divisions, the league provides a jersey and cap. Every player must have their own equipment (bat, gloves, helmet, water bottle). No sharing is allowed because of Covid-19.

Parents/guardians will need to provide: pants, socks, belt, athletic supporter (boys only), cleats, and a glove. (Colors for pants, socks, and belts will be determined at a pre-season meeting with Managers and Team Parents – please make sure to know your teams’ colors before purchasing equipment for the coming season)

Q. What is a Team Parent?
A. Team Parents play a vital role every season in ensuring smooth communication and organization between everyone involved. Team Parents:

  • Assist Managers/Coaches communicate with players and parents
  •  Call/text parents as needed
  •  Plan/organize team events
  •  Oversee the team fundraiser
  •  Assist Manager in collecting fundraiser dues by the assigned deadline
  •  Help with communication between players/parents and the league

Q. What are the team/league fundraisers?
A. Each season, the league oversees one fundraiser that is mandatory for all teams and players (actual fundraisers vary from season to season).  Teams may also decide to put names on the back of their jerseys and/or have a team banner made (which would require additional fundraising by the specific team).

Q. Are the Managers/Coaches background checked?
A. Yes, they are all checked at least once per year.  We keep a file with their current application and a copy of their driver's license on file.

Q. Where are games played?
A. All games are at Red Hill Park, except for some Rookie and T-ball games held at Golden Oak Park.

Q. My son is 8 years-old, can he play in the Minor Division?
A. Players who are 8-12 years-old should attend one of our Spring tryouts to determine their playing ability to their appropriate division. All 8-year-olds are welcome to try out. During tryouts, Major/Minor managers will evaluate their skill level for division play.  Any 8-year-old not drafted will be placed on a Rookie team.

Q. What are tryouts?
A. Tryouts are for players 8 yrs. old and above that are not currently on a Major team. Tryouts consist of basic skill evaluation of throwing, fielding, and batting skills.

Q. What is Draft Day?
A. This is the day all Majors and all Minors are chosen by Managers and placed on a team.

Q. What do I do if I have ANY problems with a player, parent, or coach?
