6-7 YR OLD Coach Pitch League - FAQ’s

Q: Do you keep score and are there umpires?
A: No score is kept during the game and no standings are kept for the season. Managers and coaches act as the field umpires.

Q: What size field do they play on and where is the field?
A: All games are played on a regulation Little League field with a dirt infield and grass outfield. Normally Fields 1, 2, 3, 11 or 12 are used.  Bases are 50' apart.

Q: Can I have my child play on a team with their friends?
A: Yes. In this age group, since there is no draft, we will do our best to accommodate pairing up of friends.  It depends on how many other children request the same teammate or coach.

Q: Can I Manage or coach a team?
A: Yes!  If positions are available we welcome the help.  Prospective managers must complete an online application.  If you would like to serve as a manager, then please monitor the website for manager application information, or contact a league official for more information.  If you would like to help a manager by being an assistant coach, make sure you note that on your son's registration form.  All managers and coaches must pass a Little League background check and be approved by the Tuckahoe Little League Board of Directors.

Q: Will my child get to play all the time?
A: Probably not the entire game, but our rules require the manager to play each child at least 50% of each game.

Q: What are the volunteer requirements?
A: TLL is an all volunteer organization so there are many ways to volunteer.  Every parent is expected to help with his/her team's shift in the league concession stand.  In addition to that, help is always needed with registration, team parenting, assisting with picture and carnival day activities, helping with post-season tournaments, and working in the concession stand to name just a few of the many ways to help support TLL.  If you are interested in helping, please let us know!
