St. Louis Park Little League FAQ

Q:  Who can play in SLP Little League?
A:  SLP Little League welcomes boys and girls from 5-12 years of age.

Q:  What are the boundaries for Minneapolis residents to fully participate in SLP Little League?  If I'm not in the bourdaries, may my player still play and what does my player miss out of?

Our boundaries include all of SLP and the following Minneapolis area: 

On the northwest edge, starting at I-394 and France Ave, south on France Ave. to 54th Ave S, 54th Ave S east to Penn Ave S, Penn Ave S north, through Lake Harriet/Lakewood Cemetary/Lake Calhoun to West Lake Street, east to Hennepin Ave and Hennepin Ave northeast to Interstate 394, Interstate 394 west to France Ave.

If you are not in the boundaries, your player is still welcome to play SLP Little League.  Your player is not allowed to play on the All-Star team for ages 9, 10, 11 or 12.  These All-Star Tournaments take place in July.  There are Select or Classic tournament teams that also play most of July that all players may play in to continue their fun and baseball development.
