Youth Safety
Ohio state law requires athletes, coaches and parents to review and sign off on information related to concussions and sudden cardiac arrest.

To enhance safety, Little League® International adheres to the USA Baseball® bat standards. Acceptable bats vary by age group, so please review before making a purchase.


League Determination
Little League® International sets aging dates annually. Ages are based on the players age as of Aug. 31. Please use the below chart to determine the appropriate league for your child. Little League provides an online league age determination tool to assist as well.

For ages 3-4, Grove City Parks and Recreation teams up with Bally Sports Group for basic sports instruction. Little Sluggers T-ball provides basic baseball instruction for preschoolers in Windsor Park on Fridays in spring (May-June) and fall (September-October) sessions.

Eligibility 

Little League has strict residency requirements that Grove City must adhere to. Per Little League rules, any player who lives within the boundary of another Little League affiliate must play for that league (e.g., Galloway Baseball Club Little League); there is no grandfather clause. If a player does not live or attend school within the boundaries established by Little League for the Grove City organization or any other affiliate, a special application must be made to Little League administrators to play in the league.

Please visit the Little League League Finder to confirm your proper league.
