Alpine / West Menlo Little League has served the families of Menlo Park, Woodside, and Portola Valley for more than a half-century. Our mission is to be an outstanding community organization that creates a culture where kids of all abilities love playing
We live outside of the Alpine/West Menlo league boundaries, but my child goes to school within the boundaries. Can he play in your league?
My child has played T-Ball in the Alpine League, and their birth certificate is already in the system – Do I need to provide it again for coach pitch?
No, you do not.
I have two children playing in this division. Can they be placed on the same team?
Yes. Siblings registering before the deadline are given first priority for same team placement. Just be sure to notify the commissioner of their relationship at the time of your online registration.
Are we allowed to request team placements (playing on the same team with a friend), and if so, how?
Yes. You may make a "friend request" during the registration process.
How and when are teams formed?
Teams are formed soon after the Coach Pitch registration closes. Until this time we will not know how many players have signed up, and thus how many teams to create. Every effort will be made to form teams according to players’ schools.
How will I know what team my child is on?
Once all the teams have been formed, team coaches will be notified of their rosters. At that time, coaches will notify their players either by phone or email within 48 hours of receiving their rosters.
Where are games played? I can’t find a game schedule or any field assignments?
A game schedule with field assignments can not be made until after registration closes. Until then, we do not know how many teams to create and thus what the field requirements are. As soon as it becomes available, you will be notified of it by your team coach.
When does the season start?
The season typically begins in March. Check the calendar for the specific day for your division.
What equipment does my child need?
Your child needs to have his own mitt, Little League approved bat and helmet. The league will provide balls and a uniform shirt and hat.
How many games a week will be scheduled?
Two; one during the week and one on Saturday. Practices are typically done before the game begins.
Is coach pitch played on a regular size little league field?
Yes, it is – this is a step up from T Ball.
Do the coach’s actually pitch overhand to the kids?
