Registration Assistance

There are three sections below that provide opportunities for assistance if you qualify. Be sure to read all the way through. 


T-Mobile is going to bat for Little League families, by contributing over $4.5 million to the T-Mobile Little League Call Up Grant to-date. The grant program has helped over 35,000 kids and counting play Little League who may not otherwise have the opportunity by covering registration fees associated with their local Little League program for under-resourced families, so every kid has the chance to play ball.

T-Mobile and Little League share the belief that every child should have the chance to experience Little League, regardless of their financial or personal situation.

The Call Up Grant, administered by Every Kid Sports, provides financial assistance grants up to a maximum of $150.

This program is available to families in need who can present verifications, such as a Free/Reduced Lunch Verification letter, SNAP, WIC, Foster Child Paperwork, or Enrollment in Medicaid or State Health Plans. For more information on how to determine if your family is eligible, as well as information on how to apply, click here.

OALL Registration:

  • If you meet the verification requirements, click the link above to apply for the T-Mobile Little League® Call Up Grant.
  • You may choose to wait for a decision from the grant administrator, however, it is recommended that you proceed with registration for your child as soon as possible and process payment in full.
  • Once a child is approved for the T-Mobile Little League Call Up Grant, the grant administrator will provide the family an electronic debit card with restrictions to use only for registration fees. If you have already registered your child, contact [email protected] for further instructions to apply these funds towards registration and receive a refund for the same amount to the original payment card. Otherwise, you can proceed to register using the grant funds along with a personal card for the remaining balance.


DICK'S Sporting Goods and The DICK'S Sporting Goods Foundation believe in the transformative power of sport to change lives. But not all kids have access to sport because of the cost of registration fees. That is why Dick's partnered with Every Kid Sports, a 501(C)(3) nonprofit, to help provide registration fee support to families that qualify.

Octorara Area Little League firmly believes that any child who wishes to play Little League baseball should be able to regardless of their financial situation. We believe that we offer an affordable program for our players and families while maintaining the financial health and sustainability of the league.

Our little league is a nonprofit organization and 100% volunteer-run. A limited number of full and partial scholarships that cover registration fees only are available based on the league’s annual budget, community sponsorship, and the overall number of registrations. With this in mind, we ask that you only request a scholarship if paying the full registration fee would cause a genuine financial hardship for your family.

Application for scholarship does not guarantee an award of assistance.

The application process will be strictly confidential. Only the president will have access to all of the original information that is submitted. The president will take each application and assign the submission a number and present all applications to the Board of Directors without personally identifying information included. This respects your privacy while allowing the Board of Directors to evaluate each application on its merits. 

Go through the registration process as normal to secure a spot in the league. After you have registered, complete and submit the scholarship application. The Board of Directors will review all applications and vote. If awarded a scholarship, you will be contacted and funds will be returned to you based on the award granted. If you are unable to pay the registration fees upfront, please submit the application and note the hardship.

If selected you acknowledge that our league is 100% volunteer-run and comes with the expectation that you will do your best to give back to Octorara Area Little League in any way you can. There are volunteer requirements for all families, we just ask that you volunteer above and beyond the volunteer requirements. Whether it's helping the team parents, extra shifts in the concession stand, or joining the Board of Directors - every little bit helps the league!

The application can be found here.
