Participation in Little League is based on age, grade, and skill level. Once players are registered according to age / grade their skill level will be evaluated at tryouts and they will be assigned to the appropriate league.  The following is a guide to determine a player’s league and tuition.

DLL New Player Field Improvement Fee - Increased participation in the baseball and softball programs has put enormous pressure on all of our facilities. In order to continue to maintain and improve McGuane and to ensure the highest quality playing conditions at all of the other facilities that we use on an on going basis, the Field Improvement Fee of $100 will be assessed for first time registrants in Spring Darien Little League (returning players are not required to pay this fee). If a player has played Summer Ball or Fall Ball but has not played in the Spring season he or she is considered a New Player. The maximum field improvement fee per family is $200.

Board of Education Field Use Fee: The BOE has instituted a mandatory fee of $28 per player, per sport, per season to use the Darien school fields. This fee will be in addition to your base registration fee and is automatically added.

 

Darien Parks and Recreation Field Usage Fee: The Director of Parks and Recreation has instituted a mandatory fee of $5 per player, per sport, per season.  This fee will be in addition to your base registration fee and is automatically added.
