2014 URI Baseball Raffle

Dear Little League Families,

We have been contacted by URI Baseball to ask if our league was interested in helping to sell raffle tickets for their annual raffle. URI offered to share the profit of tickets we sell with South Kingstown Little League. We at SKLL thought this would be a good opportunity to raise additional revenue for the league and develop a partnership with the university.

Proceeds from ticket sales would be used for player development (clinics / training), purchase new equipment, and upgrade the facilities utilized by SKLL. This would have a direct positive impact on our baseball and softball players and enhance the programs offered by our league.

Please see the attached information for the raffle.

If you have any questions or are interested in purchasing a ticket please contact me at fgskll@cox.net.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Sincerely, 

Frank J. Gallucci

 

Frank J Gallucci
President
South Kingstown American and National Little Leagues

Important Rule Change for the 2014 Season: Residency and School Attendance Eligibility

In an effort to accommodate Little Leaguers® playing with their classmates, and ease the burden on parents and guardians, Little League® recently amended its residency requirements to allow children to play in the local league whose boundaries where they attend school is located. To verify enrollment, parents will need to bring an official school document, such as a report card or school enrollment form, confirming enrollment in the school for the current academic year, dated before October 1, 2013. Read the full text of the new rule here

In order to facilitate the change, Little League has recently created an official Little League school enrollment form. This form can be utilized by players that attend school within a league's boundary but would prefer not to provide a school performance record or school registration record in order to enroll in a league for participation. For further clarification on the new residency requirements, please view the video.
