2017 Spring Baseball and Softball registration is now open!



Registration for the South Kingstown Little League 2017 Spring Baseball and Softball season is open! Register before February 16th to avoid a late fee. All registrations are processed online through Sports Illustrated Play at http://skll.siplay.com . At this time only debit/credit card payments are accepted. If you want to pay by check, print and return a completed registration form with payment to the SKLL PO Box. 

Please note that SKLL has reorganized the lower divisions for this year.
Tee Ball will provide very basic introduction to baseball including positioning, hitting, fielding, throwing, catching, sportsmanship and the basic rules of baseball. Tee Ball instruction and games will be centered on the kids hitting off of fixed tees.
Instructional baseball will provide an atmosphere for teaching/improving the basics of baseball in a non-competitive game setting including hitting a pitched ball, fielding, throwing, catching, base running, sportsmanship and knowledge of the basic rules of baseball. Instructional baseball is a coach-pitch league intended to prepare participants for Minors baseball, a player-pitch league. Baseball league age 5 and 6 year-old players must have played atleast 1 year of T-ball; and may be asked to attend a group evaluation prior to entry into the Instructional League.
Minors baseball provides a positive experience for the participants and to introduces players to a higher level of play in preparation for graduation to little league Majors baseball. This includes a continued emphasis on learning the fundamentals of the game and instruction on the finer points and strategies of baseball. The goal of Minors is to develop players of different ages at different positions in preparation for majors in a more competitive atmosphere still while maintaining a high level of sportsmanship in a positive team environment.

If you are not sure what Little League age your child is please follow these links (Baseball age chart & Softball age chart) or see our handouts page. 

Sports Illustrated Play was our registration vendor last year, so your log in information is the same. Please remember to update any information that might have changed, especially phone nmbers, addresses, and school information.
