Established in 1954, Delaney Park Little League is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are a 100% volunteer run organization affiliated with Little League International, offering downtown Orlando area youth baseball and softball programs for regular season play and access to the world’s largest youth sports tournament for more advanced players with the Little League World Series that takes place each summer. Delaney Park Little League's boundary resides within Florida District 24 and Little League's Southeast region. Our boundary map can be viewed here --> online version or on the Forms & Resources page.
Registration is available through our online registration portal. To register, click on the registration link on our homepage during open registration periods. You must have an account, or create one using the link at top of this site, in order to register. If you already have a SportsEngine(SportNgin) account, even if from another league/organization, you can login with that and 'Become a Member' of DPLL.
Fees are subject to change. The Board of Directors budget monies each season to cover national charter and district fees, insurance, field rentals, equipment, umpires, uniforms, and continued maintenance of our facilities. 100% of the net proceeds are directly invested in the operation and enhancement of our programs.
Registration fees include team uniform (hat, jersey, and socks) for every player. Pants and belt are not included as part of the team uniform. Pant color is determined by team manager after selection. A belt is not typically needed for teeball and rookie levels as those pant sizes are generally of a pull-up/drawstring variety, without belt loops. Team bats, balls, helmets, and catchers gear is provided by the league. Note that players may share team helmets, however many players in upper divisions purchase their own batting helmets.
At the end of the Spring season All Star teams are formed to participate in the District 24 Tournament. Age groups are established by Little League International. DPLL, upon approval of the Board, will attempt to field a team in all Little League approved age divisions. The selection process for players, managers and coaches varies per division and is detailed in the By-Laws, but generally follows the Little League recommended components for a fair and democratic selection.
All Stars is a very enriching event in the lives of our players and coaches, which requires dedication and commitment beyond the normal requirements of regular season. Tournament play is intensely competitive and requires more focused, committed effort. Players commit to represent DPLL to the highest standards.
DPLL's goal is to provide all players an opportunity to learn the game in a safe environment, develop skills, and most importantly HAVE FUN. Division age groups are established by Little League and the DPLL Board of Director's policies. We are committed to ensuring player development at the appropriate level and maintaining overall player safety, and a competitive balance among teams in each division. Additional division descriptions can be found under Our Divisions page.
A player's league age is determined by Little League International. League age is calculated automatically during registration based on a players DOB.
Current year age charts can be found under Forms & Resources.
More information regarding age determination for Baseball divisions can be found here on the Little League website.
Our registration numbers vary each season by available divisions and age groups. Teams are assembled by a combination of managers, coaches, league player agents, and the Board of Director's policies. Selection to divisions is based on team counts, the player evaluation, and draft. We are committed to ensuring player safety, and a competitive balance among teams in each division.
The league will attempt to honor requests for coaches and/or friends at the Rookies and Tee Ball levels, however they cannot be guaranteed. LL rules require that teams be assembled each season(Minors, Rookies, and Tee Ball), thus do not allow teams to have the same players/coaches automatically from season to season. Some players may end up on a team from a prior season, however it must occur naturally through the draft/selection process.
Fielding teams in all divisions cannot be guaranteed. The Board of Directors will determine final divisions and team counts based on number of registrations received and available facilities/fields.
Yes, thanks to our generous sponsors, we are able to offer partial and full scholarships each season. To inquire about obtaining a scholarship, please email us and a league volunteer will contact you.
We understand that unusual circumstances may result in a player needing to withdraw for a particular season. The following refund policy has been established.
