According to Little League rules, players must reside OR attend a school located within our specified league catchment area in order to be eligible to play baseball at Hastings Community Little League. Hastings Community Little League holds the charter for a geographic area that covers parts of East Vancouver and North Burnaby. For a map showing the Hastings Community Little League residence eligibility league boundaries, click this link: League Boundaries.
A player will be deemed to reside within the league boundaries if:
a) His/her parents are living together and are residing within such league boundaries or either of the player’s parents (or his/her court-appointed legal guardian) resides within such boundaries. "Residence," "reside" and "residing" refers to a place of bona fide continuous habitation.
c) The player attends a school within HCLL's league boundaries.
Returning players who have moved out of the geographic boundaries for Hastings Community Little League will be grandfathered and remain eligible to play at HCLL, but must provide all required information to the league president at firstname.lastname@example.org.
