Rules & Regulations Regarding Helmets with C-Flaps

Q: Can a parent add a chin flap or "c-flap" to their child's helmet for safety?
A: No. Adding a c-flap to a helmet not specifically designed to have a c-flap voids its NOCSAE safety certification. However, there are c-flap equipped helmets they can purchase that meet little league safety requirements. As c-flap helmets are relatively new to Little League, the league and helmet manufacturers are still solidifying the regulations.

Little League Baseball Bat Standards

With the implementation of the USA Baseball Bat standards, here is the official Little League resource page to answer all your questions.

In short, all bats in Little League must have the USA Bat logo to be legal, with the exception of T-Ball bats used only with approved T-Balls. In this case only, a USA Bat sticker can be applied to the bat to make it legal. There are no other exceptions.

Please also review the list of decertified bats and alert your players' parents to steer clear of these when purchasing - especially when purchasing used gear.



Need Ideas for Practice Drills?

In the age of YouTube, there are some really great tutorials and instructional videos out there from fellow coaches that will get you off to a good start and keep the kids having fun and motivated to learn. Just to get you started, here are some great drills you might consider. But poke around and find what works best for your team. No two teams over the seasons will be the same and you'll be challenged to adapt.
