ASAP Submission Open for 2021 Season

Any local league or district wishing to submit its 2021 ASAP plan may do so now through the Little League Data Center. It is strongly suggested that any ASAP plan submitted for the 2021 season include a coronavirus mitigation plan.

Adding a coronavirus safety section to your league’s Safety Plan is not mandatory for ASAP approval, but is strongly recommended. Please refer to Little League Best Practices for more guidance and direction. Any Safety Plan submitted without the inclusion of a coronavirus mitigation plan is eligible for approval by Little League, however the lack of such protocols will likely affect the opportunity to be recognized as a regional or national winner of the Best Safety Plan award. As your league assembles its Safety Plan, additional guidance for Safety Officers is available, at: LittleLeague.org/SeasonResources.

Local leagues and districts must upload their 2021 ASAP Safety Plan; and access and update their Facility Survey (ASAP Requirement No. 8) through the Little League Data Center.

Dates of Note:

  • December 1, 2020: Leagues may begin to submit Safety Plans via the Little League Data Center
  • April 2, 2021: Early Submission Deadline for District Incentive; plans must be received AND approved
  • April 16, 2021: League Deadline (League Incentive/Best-Safety-Plan Award)spacer

Requirement No. 15:

To better understand the impact coronavirus pandemic may have on a local league’s willingness to participate in the 2021 Little League International Tournament, Little League is asking two survey questions in Requirement No. 15. The responses to these questions will substantially influence how Little League prepares resources and materials for leagues interested in entering teams in the 2021 tournament.

Please remember that you will be able to submit your ASAP Safety Plan before Requirement 14 (Registration Data) is completed, however, your ASAP Safety Plan will not be approved until the Registration Data requirement is completed. Note that Requirement 14 (Provide Registration Data) will automatically check your league’s registration data before the ASAP Safety Plan is approved. Remember, for leagues using Sports Connect for their player and volunteer registration, that information will be automatically sent to Little League International, helping to fulfill Regulation IV(g) and ASAP Requirement 14.

ASAP Participation Incentive:

If each of a district’s local leagues have ASAP plans submitted and approved by Friday, April 2, 2021, the district will earn an ASAP participation incentive cash award. For a local league to receive its ASAP participation credit and be in consideration for that national awards program presented by Musco, its plan must be submitted by Friday, April 16, 2021. For the 2021 season, the district standard of 80-to-89 percent of its ASAP plans received/approved by April 2, 2021, will collect $300; and those districts reporting 90-100 percent participation will earn $600.

Submission Permission:

Only League Presidents and League Safety Officers may submit an ASAP Safety Plan, unless another officer has been given permission by the League President. Officers that do NOT have this permission will not see the ASAP submission link once logged into the Data Center. To request this permission, please contact your League President. League Presidents can add this permission by clicking edit next to any officers’ name on the Manage/View Officers screen and checking the Manage ASAP box under permissions.spacerSafety Plan Review:

If an ASAP Safety Plan is not accepted, the league will receive an email containing a description of the issues that prevented it from being approved. The ASAP Safety Plan can be amended and resubmitted online using the same submission process. Remember, to host a Little League International Tournament game above the district level, the host site must have an ASAP Safety Plan approved for the current season.
