Head Coaches - Register Now

Hard to believe… but another baseball season has come and gone. We certainly appreciate all of the great volunteers who put in the time and effort necessary to make it so successful. Also hard to believe… the planning for next season is already underway.

To continuously improve our program and get a head start on next season, we are starting the recruiting process for Head Coaches now. The goal is to have a longer than needed list of interested coaches in place as early as possible, rather than trying to find them at the last minute in the spring.

We have been very fortunate to have had so many great individuals step up over the years and offer their time and talent to help in this regard. However, we do often come up short. We will need about 65 Head Coaches for the upcoming season.    

Our program’s mission is to develop the baseball skills suited for each division of play while providing a positive team experience for all who participate, regardless of their individual skill level. Winning is secondary to player development, equal opportunity in games and promoting a love for the game.

We need those individuals who share in, and will embrace these principles as Head Coaches in our program.  If you are at all interested in being a Head Coach for the 2018 season, please go to the link below and complete the 2018 Volunteer Form. For those who have questions or would like more details on what is all involved in being a Head Coach at the various Divisions of play, we will be holding two information meetings sometime in January. Details will be posted on our website.

Anyone who applies for a Head Coach position by January 31st, (whether they become a head coach or not) will have their name entered in a drawing for 25 Concession Stand Treat Tickets ($50 value). There will be two winners drawn.   

Important Note: Completing the application form does not commit you to, or guarantee you will get a team.


2018 Coach/Volunteer Registration

We are now accepting applications for coaches & volunteers for the 2018 season. All applications must be submitted online.

LITTLE LEAGUE® TO ADOPT NEW USA BASEBALL BAT STANDARD STARTING WITH 2018 SEASON

We want to make everyone aware that the baseball bat standards will be changing for the 2018 season.

http://www.littleleague.org/media/llnewsarchive/2015/May-August/Little-League-USA-Baseball-Bat-Standard-2018.htm

Little League Baseball Bat Information

Before purchasing a new bat, be sure to understand the bat rules.  It is possible that the bat you purchase in 2017 may not be legal for use in 2018.

More info here:
http://www.littleleague.org/learn/equipment/baseballbatinfo.htm
http://www.littleleague.org/learn/equipment/baseballbatinfo/batrules.htm

 

Rule 1.10 - Baseball

The bat must be a baseball bat which meets the USA Baseball Bat standard (USABat) as adopted by Little League. It shall be a smooth, rounded stick, and made of wood or of material and color tested and proved acceptable to the USA Baseball Bat standard (USABat).

Beginning with the 2018 season, non-wood and laminated bats used in the Little League (Majors) and below, Intermediate (50-70) Division, and Junior League divisions shall bear the USA Baseball logo signifying that the bat meets the USABat – USA Baseball’s Youth Bat Performance Standard. All BPF – 1.15 bats will be prohibited beginning with the 2018 season. Additionally, starting in 2018, the bat diameter shall not exceed 2⅝ inches for these divisions of play. Additional information is available at LittleLeague.org/batinfo.

Tee Ball:

Under the USABat standard, certified Tee Ball bats (26" and shorter) will feature the USA Baseball mark and text which reads ONLY FOR USE WITH APPROVED TEE BALLS. All Tee Ball bats must feature the USA Baseball mark and accompanying text. Tee Ball bats that were produced and/or purchased prior to the implementation of the new standard can be certified using an Approved Tee Ball Sticker via the USA Baseball Tee Ball Sticker Program (USABaseballShop.com) beginning September 1, 2017.

Minor/Major Divisions:

It shall not be more than 33 inches in length; nor more than 2⅝ inches in diameter, and if wood, not less than fifteen-sixteenths (15/16) inches in diameter (7/8 inch for bats less than 30") at its smallest part. Wood bats taped or fitted with a sleeve may not exceed sixteen (16) inches from the small end.

NOTE: Solid one-piece wood barrel bats do not require a USA Baseball logo.
