Lafayette Little League: Welcome

Wednesday, February 10

Weather Update - ALL FIELDS OPEN!


The Major Tryouts have been rescheduled!!  The new Tryout date will be February 13th.  The Tryout will begin at 9am so have your Little Leaguer to the Field in time to warm up and be put in order.  So if you are ready to take the last turn on the Road to Williamsport, we'll see you on Saturday Feb 13th!


 
 LLL is having a Mandatory Coaching Clinic for ALL Head Coaches (one Assistant per Team is invited as well) on February 13th at 2pm at our LLL Park on the Major Field.  As stated, attendance at this Clinic is required and we're sure you're not going to want to miss this one!  Our guest speaker will be Bruce Lambin!  Coach Lambin is one of the top names in Youth Coaching and has givin clinics to Little League's all around the country (in at least two cases, just before teams from our own Lafayette Little League and Rhode Island went to Williamsport).  He was also contracted by Little League International to produce instructional videos of his training techniques.  So, this one is Mandatory, but it is also one that you do not want to miss!

There have been quite a number of changes involving registration since last Spring and Fall.  The first change is the new Age Determination Rules passed down from Little League International.  This change has us dealing with 3 different sets of Age Determination Dates.  For Spring 2016, the following will be the birthday age ranges for kids within our Baseball Divisions at LLL: 
Tee Ball:      September 1, 2009 thru August 31, 2011
PeeWee 7:   September 1, 2008 thru August 31, 2009
PeeWee 8:   September 1, 2007 thru August 31, 2008
Minor 9:       September 1, 2006 thru August 31, 2007
Minor 10:     May 1, 2005 thru August 31, 2006
Major:          May 1, 2003 thru April 30, 2005
Junior:         May 1, 1999 thru April 30, 2003

So the answer is yes.  Some players will be playing in the same Division as they played last Spring.  For more information regarding Little League International's new Age Determination rules please click here

The next change for Spring 2016 is that Games for the Major Division and the Junior/Senior Division will begin on April 4th!  This will allow kids time to finish their School Baseball seasons before the start of their Little League Season.

Finally, our registration software has changed.  The new software portal (prepared by Anytime League) can be accessed by clicking here.  A little tip, once you've entered your "Athlete", click the button for "Actions" and select "Program".  If you are registering more than one Athlete, repeat the process. 

Thank you for chosing Lafayette Little League.  And if you have any questions, please email info@lafayettelittleleague.net.
