How to Charter

Chartering with Little League for the first time is a quick and easy 3-step process that can often be completed in less than two weeks. For additional information about how to charter, you can also contact Little League International at (570) 326-1921.

3 Steps to Chartering with Little League for the First Time

1. Complete and Submit a Charter Application

The Little League Charter Application is the form where you will indicate how many teams your league will be chartering in each division. Additionally, this is the form where you can purchase accident and liability insurance through Little League.

Once completed, the charter application can be mailed to:

Little League International
539 US Route 15 Hwy
PO Box 3485
Williamsport PA 17701-0485

To request a charter application, you can either submit your request online or contact Sam Ranck at sranck@LittleLeague.org.

2. Submit a League Constitution and List of Board Members

Each affiliated Little League program must submit a League Constitution.  A constitution is the legal document that governs the operation of your Little League program.  We strongly encourage all leagues to adopt the Little League Model Constitution; however, if you have an existing constitution you may submit that as well.  Along with your League Constitution, please also submit a list of current board members for our records.

Once completed, please submit your Constitution and list of board members to your respective regional office.

3. Submit a Boundary Map

All Little League programs must file a boundary map of the area from which they will draw their players.  The boundary map should include a closed boundary, as well as a written description of that boundary and should be signed and dated by the league president and district administrator.  For additional information on creating a boundary map, view these boundary map requirements.
