CHLL House Rules

Capitol Hill Little League is affiliated with Little League International and follows their rules and regulations. CHLL also maintains specific house rules for all divisions, which all players and coaches are required to follow. While the CHLL house rules outline general game rules, they also describe the league's sportsmanship and safety guidelines. 

Baseball Majors & AAA Division Age Guidelines

In December 2020, CHLL adopted changes to our AAA and Majors age groupings.  Rather than using rigid 2-year age bands, we now have additional flexibility in age groupings that is allowed by Little League International (LLI). By making this change, players will have more opportunity to play in the most appropriate division based on their baseball skills, interest level, and level of competitiveness.  As a result, players will now be eligible to play in divisions as follows:

  • League Age 10-12 are eligible for Majors

  • League Age 8-11 are eligible for AAA

Please note that eligibility does not guarantee placement in a higher division.  Please review the full Guidelines for additional information.

Player Pool Policy

The purpose of the player pool is to eliminate the need for baseball and softball teams at the AAA level and above to play a game with less than 9 rostered players available for the entire game. Use of the Player Pool must arranged by the Player Agent.  Please review the Player Pool Policy for details.

Volunteer Code of Conduct

Capitol Hill Little League has implemented a Volunteer Code of Conduct for the important message it holds about the proper role of league volunteers in supporting children in sports. All volunteers must read, understand and acknowledge this form prior to participation in our league. 

Parent Code of Conduct

Capitol Hill Little League has implemented a Parent and Guardian Code of Conduct for the important message it holds about the proper role of parents and guardians in supporting children in sports. Parents and guardians must read and understand this form prior to their child’s participation in our league. Any parent or guardian displaying improper conduct at any game or practice will be asked to leave the sports facility and be suspended from attending the following game.
