Interleague Play allows leagues in which there are not enough players to play a full schedule of games. Normally, four teams are enough to play “in-house” without needing to request interleague play with other Little Leagues such as Central Chesterfield LL or Huguenot LL.
The CLL board determines the number of teams per division as well as decides if interleague play is in the best interest of the players, parents and the league.
A District 5 Administrator develops a team schedules.
Teams must travel to other District 5 LL Fields during the week and on weekends.
Interleague Structure – District-wide: If only a limited number of Teams can be structured, CLL may participate as a travel team within District 5, traveling to other Little League’s within the District Boundary to compete. A District 5 Administrator develops a team schedule that allows all Little League teams to play against one another in a competitive regular season Baseball/Softball Division.
Virginia District 5 Little Leagues: All current D5 Little Leagues.
Outside District 5 Boundaries- Interleague Teams that choose to travel outside District 5 Boundaries can only do so as approved by CLL and the District Administrator.
Local League Structure – In-House: If enough Teams can be formed, CLL will offer an “in house” Baseball/Softball Division that will consist of players from within CLL who choose to participate in Baseball/Softball Division play.
All Star Teams:
Using the interleague or in-house structure, one All-Star tournament team will be formed by CLL following league policies, Little League rules and guidelines.
If the CLL board does not feel it has enough players to field its own Tournament Team for any division, CLL may request a combination with another league, provided CLL has played a common schedule of games with teams in District 5 Interleague Play.
Interleague Structure – District-wide:
One Team: Players on this team will be provided only one uniform for use during regular season and All-Star Tournament play. This team shall be outfitted in a CLL All-Star uniform as a cost savings for players that choose to participate in Tournament Play.
If uniform accessories, i.e. vest/shirt and or hat are required at a later date to match other CLL All-Star Teams for tournament play, additional uniform cost will be required per player at that time.
Two or more Interleague Teams: Uniforms provided same as in-house teams.
