The electronic boundary map tool is a new feature on eteamz web sites. Eteamz, and their parent company, ACTIVE Network, are long time partners of Little League. Through this partnership, they developed this new technology to allow districts and leagues to add an electronic boundary map to their eteamz.com web sites.
Please note this is a brand new tool that is being introduced. As we begin to roll this out to our member leagues and districts, we ask for your patience and feedback. We will continually enhance and improve the features of the tool as we hear specific feedback from you.
How do I go about creating a boundary map?
- Please watch the tutorial on how to create a boundary map:

Why hasn't my map been approved yet?
The process for approval of a boundary map is as follows:
- Once you save your map and click to submit for approval, the map is sent to your District Administrator for review.
- If your DA accepts of your map as drawn, he/she then forwards an email to his region with the map to review.
- Final review and publishing occurs at your regional office.
- Once your map is accepted it automatically appears on your eteamz.com web site.
Is the boundary map portion of eteamz.com on a free or PLUS site?
The boundary map tool is available on all eteamz sites, free or PLUS, so long as the site type is League or Organizational and the site is associated to Little League.
How will I know if my map is accepted or rejected?
- If your map is accepted, it will automatically show up on your Eteamz site.
- If your map is rejected, your DA or Region will communicate back to you to advise on the reasons for the rejection.
Who should I contact to check on the status of my map?
You should first contact your District Administrator to ensure that he/she has reviewed the map and forwarded to the appropriate Regional Office. If yes, than you can check with your Regional Office on the review status of your map.
To create a map in eteamz, login to the eteamz admin and go to Website Pages>Boundary Maps.

The starting location on the map will be pulled in automatically from your eteamz Listing page (My Site Design > Listing), but it can be edited by clicking the Edit link under the Site Location section.
You can also add an address in the Find address field. You can add a city name and state, or zip code to the Find address field.
1. Enter an address and click Find address. A pin will point to the exact center of the address you entered.
2. Once you have the correct location, start drawing your border by clicking on the map.

- Note: You may need to zoom in by clicking the + button on the left hand side of the map to ensure you are including the appropriate border area.
3. To complete and close a map, you need to click on the start point. The map will indicate that it's closed properly by highlighting the middle of the map in blue.

4. Please be sure to add a Boundary Name. The Description should include comprehensive details about your league and the league or district's boundaries. Feel free to include street names and other locations to help identify your boundaries. The Regional Center Staff at Little League will review this description to help determine if the map is correct.

Map Approval Process ( IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ )

The DA will either return the email to you, to request any changes OR send an email to the Regional Center Staff for final approval. The DA must forward the email and not respond to the email to the appropriate recipient with instructions. Once the Regional Center Staff approves your map, it will display on the Boundary Map page on your eteamz site.
