Westside FAQs

How are teams established?

• For Pee Wee, there are no tryouts or draft and teams are put together at random.  Coach & player requests may be honored if possible.

For all other divisions, teams are drafted by team managers after a player evaluation during tryouts.

How many games will we play? Practices?

• The number of practices will be up to your respective Head Coach.

• Each division will play 10+ games in the Fall or 12+ games in the Spring (varies by division.) In the Spring, teams will also play a minimum of 2 additional games in the playoffs

It rained – how do I find out if our game will be played or rescheduled?

• Each team will receive an update from their respective Head Coach

• The league will also update the field status on the website and share updates via Social Media as soon as possible. 

Our game is rained out – now what?

• The league will update schedules on the website with make-up dates/times for games that have been rained out as soon as possible. Head Coaches and Parents should receive email updates as soon as those changes are posted. 

• We attempt to use Monday & Friday nights in the Spring and Friday nights in the fall to accommodate makeup games; in the fall, we may also utilize Saturdays and/or Sundays in the event several games get rained out in a short period of time.  

• We do our best to schedule make-up games in the order in which they were originally scheduled. For example, if a 6PM and a 7:30PM game are rained out on Tuesday night game, the 6PM game will be rescheduled in the first available make-up time  slot and the 7:30PM game will be rescheduled for the next available make-up time slot after that. 

Why is Westside Little League so expensive? 

• Is it?  At WSLL, we work hard to balance a competitively priced, volunteer-based league with the costs associated with maintaining our  fields

• If you are comparing to a select organization program, a typical Select tournament cost is $50 per player per tournament with a 3 game guarantee.  Playing 4 Select tournaments would guarantee 12 games at a cost of $200 (not including uniform costs, coaches fees, umpire fees, travel fees, admission fees, and facility fees.) Westside offers 12+ games at a lower cost 

Who is on paid staff for the league?

• The league is run & operated solely by volunteers.

What do we do if we have problems/concerns?

• Parents, please always start with your team’s respective Head Coach if you have problems. Should your issue be with your Head Coach, please contact our Player Agent

• Coaches, if you have an issue with parents and/or players, please deal directly with your respective Division’s Commissioner to resolve the matter

• Westside’s leadership is always willing to hear concerns from parents/coaches, but ultimately you will be referred back to one of the two sources above to have concerns addressed

What do we need for tryouts? Games?

• Players simply need to bring a glove, bat, and batting helmet to tryouts.

• During the season the league supplies hats and jerseys. Parents are responsible for providing the baseball pants, socks, and belt. Once you've been placed on a team, your coach will let you know what color pants/socks/belt your team will be wearing during the season.

What if we have other questions?
