If the league for which you are geographically bound to participate in is not a good fit for your child, you do have options. But your child will have to make concessions.
Albert Einstein defines insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. This being said, if you don't like the result you are getting make an adjustment.
If you feel it is time to make some adjustments for your child, then listed below you will find some very needed information which was taken directly from http://www.littleleague.org/learn/rules/rulewaiver.htm
While there are no perfect solutions, sometimes only a little improvement is better than none at all. What will you be teaching your child by making a move like this?
SPECIAL WAIVER REQUEST (SWR)
Little League's Charter Committee in Williamsport PA may grant a Special Waiver of any Rule or Regulation, including the Boundary Regulation(s). An SWR is a Letter, written to the LLB Charter Committee, asking for a Waiver of a Specific Rule or Regulation
- SWRs MUST be approved by the Local League Board of Directors.
- SWRs MUST be put in writing and signed by the Local League President.
- If the SWR also concerns another League, that League President's comments must be included.
- If the SWR also concerns another District, that District Administrator's comments must be included.
- SWRs MUST be forwarded to the District Administrator (DA) for review & comment.
- The DA will forward the SWR to Little League for Approval or Denial by the LLB Charter Committee.
REGULAR SEASON ONLY RESIDENCY SPECIAL WAIVER REQUEST
If you would like to ask Little League Charter Committee for a Residency (Boundary) Waiver for the current Regular Season Only ( NO ALL-STAR ELIGIBILITY ), there is a form to assist in that process.
LLB Approval with this form will PROHIBIT the Player from All-Star Tournament Eligibility and the player is therefore NOT ELIGIBLE to be selected on any All-Star Tournament team.

The rules and regulations are in place to help parents help their children. If your child plays the game to be on an All-Star team then this may not be the right adjustment but if your child plays the game for the love of it then have fun in the dirt on the other side.
While playing All-Stars can be fun, if the right kids are selected. Which most of the time they are not. Chances are you will pay $60 to $100 for uniforms that may have your son's name spelled correctly. You will take time off of work, so more money lost, travel to the practices and games more money spent. Food after the game more money.
