For assistance with Registration,
Registration InformationUpdated Tuesday December 20, 2016 by Petaluma National Little League.
Registration is open! Please take a moment to review information provided below before registering.
In addition to the player registration information below, we need managers and coaches for all divisions. Please consider signing up to manage or coach during the registration process. PNLL will provide training and support throughout the season.
Similar to last year, we are encouraging all participants to use the new document uploading feature* built into our registration system to upload both your birth certificate (new players only) and address verification documents. If you upload the required documents and pay online, you are not required to attend in-person registration/verification. Once your documents have been uploaded and your registration is complete, they will be reviewed by our information officer, you will only be contacted if there is a question or concern.
*Note: If uploading 3 separate documents, then do not click upload until all 3 are “chosen”. Or, uploading one document that combines the 3 is easier with the online tool.
A medical authorization form will be generated from the information you provide during registration. This form will be provided to your child's team manager for you to sign at your first team meeting/practice.
Snack Shack: A $25 per player snack shack fee will now be charged upfront, during registration. If you chose to work a shift in the snack shack, you will be reimbursed for this fee at the completion of our shift.
