Parent Connection
Little League Creates Parent Connection

The Parent Connection: Little League® has created The Parent Connection, a monthly e-newsletter designed to educate parents. Little League believes more informed parents create better run leagues, which results in kids having more fun. Each newsletter will contain important information such as the latest rules, registration info, fitness and safety tips, and equipment advice. The Parent Connection will enhance the communication efforts of D.A.’s and League Presidents, and will serve to complement the great work done by both groups.

Click on the Parent Connection Logo to view the current issue. We encourage all parents and League volunteers to sign-up to receive The Parent Connection.



IRS Tax "Reporting" for Tax Exempt Organizations

The IRS has instituted new requirements for Tax Reporting for "Small" Tax Exempt Organizations.  It is VERY IMPORTANT that your Local League Treasurer reviews the information and files the appropriate paperwork for your Local League.  Several leagues have already had IRS Reviews of their Filings.  Substantial FINES may be given for Violations.
