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.
