Waiver Forms

The available waiver forms are listed below. Please read further down to understand more about what division waivers are and if you may want to take advantage of this option!

What are Division Waivers?

Division waivers are for players who have specific requests to play within a certain division. The typical process for how players are put on teams is outlined here. However, our league wants to be accommodating to every player, and therefore gives parents options to bypass the normal player selection process and pick a league to play in.

Who is Eligible for Division Waivers?

Division waivers are offered to baseball players who are "League Age" 8 or 9 that want to pick between the AA National League and AA American League. The primary difference in the two leagues is the National League is more developmental and includes a Coach Pitch option, while the American League is Player Pitch only. For a complete list of the rules in each league, click here for the AA National League Rules and click here for the AA American League Rules.

If parents prefer their child to play in one of those specific divisions because of the rule differences, they can fill out and submit a waiver form requesting to play in the division of choice. If a parent does not have a preference, then there is nothing to worry about and their son will be selected to a team through the normal player selection process. A copy of the waiver form is available here. After completing the form, you can either drop it off at Zeeland Recreation of email it to us at .

The other division waivers are available for League Age 12 year olds. Little League International requires all 12 year olds to be placed at the "Majors Level". In some circumstances, however, parents may feel that their child is not ready to play at that level, and his/her skill set is better fit for the AAA division. In those cases, parents may fill out this waiver to play in a "lower" division. After completing the form, you can either drop it off at Zeeland Recreation of email it to us at  . Our ZLL Board will review the request to ensure it is a best fit for the player and get back to you on the decision.

12 year olds in baseball have another division waiver option as well. A 12 year old may request to bypass Majors and play at the 50/70 or Juniors divisions. The details of this request are listed in the waiver form. After completing the form, you can either drop it off at Zeeland Recreation of email it to us at  . Our ZLL Board will review the request to ensure it is a best fit for the player and get back to you on the decision.
