Par-Troy West Little League (“PTWLL”) is a non-profit IRS 501.C.3 organization, established in 1952. The league is run by a Board of Directors, all of whom are volunteers.
We receive no outside local, state or federal financial aid to operate our program. All funds are received through donations, fundraisers, sponsors, and registration fees. All funds are used to maintain our own fields and to pay for all services, insurances, utilities, equipment, and uniforms.
PTWLL is in full compliance with all Little League Rules and Regulations. We have an approved charter that is approved regularly for every season by Little League Headquarters. Our approved By-Laws, which are quite similar to approved By-Laws of the past and those of other Little League organizations, have been approved by Little League International Headquarters in Williamsport, PA.
Please feel free to share all feedback and suggestions, as we are always looking for ways to grow and improve our program!

The Challenger League is a baseball league for disabled children, that was established in 1986, by Williamsport Little League.
The Morris County Challenger Little League was established in 1999. The dedicated volunteers create a positive environment for the children who are in need of this program. The majority of the participants are from Morris County, and a few from the neighboring counties. The ages of participation are: 5 years old to 21 years old. The 21-year-old must be attending a school in order to participate.
The Baseball schedule begins in the middle of April and ends at the end of June. The games are played at a different town every weekend.
Please check the PTWLL schedule for when we are hosting the Challenger League games! Typically games are played one Sunday afternoon in April or May.
- The first game starts at 2pm, where PTWLL "buddies" assist Challenger Players in their game.
- At 4pm, PTWLL faces the Challengers in a special game with special rules for PTWLL players. So far, the Challengers are undefeated!
PTWLL "buddies" can be players, siblings, parents or guardians of nearly all ages. PTWLL participants have found the games to be very rewarding and fun.
Little League International specifies the age cutoffs for Baseball and Softball annually, and will publish it on their website along with an online calculator.
- Softball ages are determined as of Dec. 31 of the year prior to the Spring season in which they will be playing. For example, in 2020, the age is as of Dec. 31, 2019.
- Baseball ages are determined as of Aug. 31 of the year in which they are playing. For example, in 2020, the age is as of Aug. 31, 2020.
Children in our league are not placed in divisions based on grade level.
- Teams for players age 4-16
- Note - All softball teams and Jr/Sr baseball teams will travel for games against other towns.
- Teams by tryouts only for players age 8-12 (depending on coaches available per team)
- Note - there is generally at most one team per level (9U, 10U, 11U, 12U) for each of baseball and softball. All teams will travel for games against other towns.
- Teams for players age 7-12
- Note - there is typically one team per level for each of baseball and softball. All teams will travel for games against other towns.
For Spring, your child's team manager will provide you with information on practice dates, times, and locations. Fields for spring are typically available by late March, depending on the winter snowfall. Before the spring season opens in mid-April, teams typically practice one weeknight and once on the weekend based on a practice schedule set when teams are formed/ drafted. Once spring games begin, practice dates and times will vary by team and field availability.
Summer All-Star teams will be notified by their team manager and could practice as often as 7 days per week.
Fall Ball teams will be notified by their team manager.
Spring games generally begin in mid-April, although softball may start earlier. Teams typically play at least 2 games on weeknights and 1 game on the weekend, and the days and times can vary week to week. Game schedules are posted online before Opening Night in April. Softball schedules are subject to change and all times should be confirmed with your team manager and/or the VP of Softball.
Summer All-Star teams will be notified by their team manager and could have multiple games in a week and in a row.
Fall Ball teams will be notified by their team manager.

- an approved, official Team Manager, Coach or Assistant Coach (you will be notified by the PTWLL Player Agent if you are one)
- work at least 3 hours at Field Cleanup (March or April, at either the baseball or softball complex - you must sign in and out to get credit)
