Catchment/Residency Info

FHLL Catchment and Residency Requirements


Starting in the 2014 season, according to Little League rules, players must reside OR attend a school located within the specified league catchment area in order to be eligible to play baseball at Forest Hills Little League. When a player is utilizing school attendance to participate in our league, then that player's siblings will be eligible to play at FHLL even if the sibling(s) does not attend the same school or physically reside within the league's boundaries.

See below for the map that shows the FHLL residence eligibility league boundaries

Each local Little League determines the actual geographic boundaries of the area from within which it shall select players. Players will be eligible to play with that league only if they reside or attend a school within the boundaries provided to and approved by Little League Canada and Little League International.
A player will be deemed to reside within the league boundaries if:

a) His/her parents are living together and are residing within such league boundaries, OR
b) Either of the player's parents (or his/her court-appointed legal guardian) resides within such boundaries. It is unacceptable if a parent moves into a league's boundaries for the purpose of qualifying for tournament play. "Residence," "reside" and "residing" refers to a place of bona fide continuous habitation. A place of residence once established shall not be considered changed unless the parents, parent or guardian makes a bona fide change of residence submission.

Residence shall be established and supported by documents, dated or in force between February 1st of the current season and February 1st of the previous year.

Returning players who have moved out of the geographic boundaries for Forest Hills Little League will be grandfathered and remain eligible to play at FHLL, but must provide all required information to the league president .

If you require any clarification as to whether your child resides within the Forest Hills Little League boundaries, please contact our league president.
