Rotating Players?

Good evening.  I am a new Little League Manager.  I am a woman, and have never played baseball, or softball in my life.  That being said, I am stepping up to manage my son's Minor 2 Baseball Team (7-9 years old).  I have several dads helping me who have a better understanding of the game.


My question is this:  I have some parents telling me that I need to rotate player positions every GAME.  I have others telling me I need to rotate player position EVERY INNING.  So the kids are changing positions and in my opinion they don't get a real feel for the position they are playing.


Is there a rule that says I have to rotate every inning?  Is there a rule that says every few innings?  Is there a rule that says every game?  I have been looking, but I am getting very confused. 


Thanks to all that can help me understand.

    Rotating Players?

    There is no Little League rule that requires you to rotate players.

    That said, especailly in minors, a lot of local leagues have Local Rules that require players to be rotated.

    Bottom oine, in minors, rotating players is a good idea to let the players get a chance to play the various positions.

    Be careful though, some players may not be skilled enough yet to play some positions.
