Q: What do I do with the Medical Release Form I was asked to print and sign?
A: Give it to your child’s coach/manager during the first week of practice. Please reach out if you do not have access to a printer.
Q: What is included with the League fees?
A: The registration fees pay for the players' uniform, which will include a hat and jersey. Registration also goes toward Galveston Little League's equipment and other operational costs (e.g., regular season umpires, field maintenance, insurance, events, etc.).
Q: What part of the uniform is not included with the League fees?
A: Parents will be responsible for pants, socks, belts and cleats. Cleats are recommended, but not required. Each team's manager/coach will determine colors and inform parents before their first game.
Q: Why is each player required to participate in fundraising?
A: The registration fees alone do not cover all the expenses to operate the league. It also allows the businesses in our community to support the league. For the 2023 season, the main fundraiser was the carnival March 25th.

A: A 16-20 game regular season with at LEAST one practice per week. There will be two games per week in most divisions. Practices vary and are determined by division and coaches.

If necessary, we will utilize the fields at Schreiber Park, located on 81st Street and Lindale Park, located on Albacore Drive. The schedule will be posted mid-February. Practice locations vary and are determined by team manager/coach.
Q: What kind of equipment do I need?
A: At the very least, a good glove. You may also need cleats, a helmet, an equipment bag, and a bat. Bats must have the USA Baseball logo. Please refer to the Little League website for specific bat information, or visit usabat.com for an approved bat list.
Q: What is this Little League Membership?
A: Little League International has recommended we create a membership opportunity that allows parents to buy-in and be voting members of Galveston Little League. Members will be invited to the Annual Meeting and will be able to vote for future elections, etc. The membership fee will go towards operating costs.
