In 2010 Little League announced that it is a requirement for each Little League organization to submit their own ASAP program (each year) for approval. The ASAP program's intent is to ensure the safety of all children playing in a league chartered under Little League International. The Dilworth Little League submitted their ASAP program to Little League International and received their ASAP approval for 2011.
