The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is open to all adult Regular Members of Oakville Little League who had players registered during the 2019 playing season or who are registered for the 2020 playing season. The AGM is a general meeting with the membership to inform members of previous and future activities within the league and to review the fiscal information for the past year. It also provides the membership an opportunity to ask questions of the board regarding the league. Below you will find the definition of our two types of membership.
 

  1. Player Members – Any player candidate meeting the requirements of Little League Regulation IV shall be eligible to participate in little league baseball.  Player Members shall have no rights, duties, or obligations in the management or in the property of The League, with the exception of those players who have reached the legal age of majority in which case they will be classified as a Regular Member of The League.
