What will Atlee Little League provide my child in order to participate?
Atlee Little League will provide each child a hat and a color coordinated shirt. For the softball divisions, Atlee will provide a team color coordinated crazy socks and shirt. In recent seasons, Atlee Little League has discovered that the majority of our players now have their own batting helmets. Atlee Little League will no longer issue batting helmets to each team. However, the league will issue helmets to the managers and/or parents that make a request for them. Atlee Little League will provide teams with catchers equipment. Softball teams will also be issued the league mandated infielders mask for the pitcher. We have a limited supply of bats available to the tball/coach pitch divisions.
What do I have to provide for my child in order to participate?
- Parents must provide their child with a glove. For more information please read the 2017 Little League Glove Regulations

Q. Does Atlee Little League require a face mask to be installed on batting helmets?
A. Yes, in most divisions. All divisions tee ball through Minors 9/10 Baseball and Softball require the use of a face mask on the batting helmets. A team manager and/or board member also has the right to ask a player to wear a batting helmet with a face mask if he/she deems necessary for the safety of the participant.
