Catcher giving signs in LL

Question

In a Little League majors game, can a catcher stand in front of home plate to give the pitcher signs? And If so, is this allowed to happen repeatedly, as in 4 pitches in a row?

Like he throws the ball back and then gives a sign?

 

or he tosses it back steps in front of the plate further and then gives a sign from in front of the batter?

 

 

Tosses the ball back to pitcher than steps in front of the plate and gives signs in front of the batter while the batter is ready to go.

So far only thing I found is this, but I will keep digging.

 

8.04  When bases are unoccupied, the pitcher shall deliver the ball within 20 seconds after the pitcher receives the ball. Each time the pitcher delays the game by violating this rule, the umpire shall call "Ball"

Note: The intent of this rule is to avoid unnecessary delays. The umpire shall insist that the catcher return the ball promptly to the pitcher, and that the pitcher take a position on the pitcher's plate promptly.

 

So this could effect timing on a pitch and also to note. While the catcher is out in front of the plate any runners could take off and steal.

Don't see why not - F2, in more advanced/serious teams, gives signs to the fielders, especially in R1/R3 situations.
Was going to say - is the OP sure he's signaling the Pitcher? Our catchers give signs to the infielders with runners on base to indicate who is taking a throw, rotation, a play is on, etc. It takes about 3 seconds.
