Summer League baseball is an opportunity for kids to play baseball after the completion of the regular Little League season. It is competitive, but played in a more relaxed atmosphere, with the emphasis on fun and skills acquisition. Normal Little League rules are adjusted, team rosters are expanded to accommodate vacation schedules, and we play only twice a week, with no weekend games, to maximize the flexibility of busy summer schedules. We provide a setting that encourages fun, while striving to win in athletic competition. In the past, we've had potluck barbeques at the games (just to give you an idea of how serious we are about this).
Rostered All-Stars players may not participate in Summer League until their All-Stars team has been eliminated from the tournament.
We will need at least one adult (preferably more) per team to act as a manager. If you can carry a bag of gear in your car and put 9 kids on the field, you qualify to coach summer league! If you are able to help with coaching this summer, please contact Eric de la Harpe at email@example.com.
Team assignments and game schedules will be available after July 4th.
We have two "divisions" for our Summer League program:
60 ft division - for kids 8-11 (as of 4/30/14)
At present, we plan to have two or three teams made of 8, 9, 10 and 11 year old players. To qualify, a player must commit to attending at least half of the four-five weeks of games. Space will be filled (~14 players per team) on a first come first served basis. Each player will receive a t-shirt to keep. Please note that players must be at least 8 years old by 4-30-14.
90 ft division - for kids 12-14 (as of 4/30/14)
At present, we plan to have one or two teams made up of 12, 13 and 14 year old players. This is a great opportunity for Majors players who will move up to juniors next season to play on the 90' diamond. To qualify, a player must commit to attending at least half of the four-five weeks of games. Space will be filled (~14 players per team) on a first come first served basis. Each player will receive a t-shirt to keep. Please note that players must be at least 12 years old by 4-30-14.
