Tunkhannock Little League Baseball Association: Welcome

Saturday, March 19
Tunkhannock Little League Home Page - More Information and Forms on Tabs on Left Menu

The 2016 Season Begins!

Games begin on April 23.  Please keep in touch with your team's manager and coaches for your team's specific practice and game schedule including any weather-related schedule adjustments.  (We don't manage or communicate that here - that is up to the team.)

Please come help with field maintenance on your team's maintenance days - a schedule is posted on the tab at left and communicated through teams.  We also need game day help - prepping fields before games, serving as volunteer umpires during games, taking turns in concessions, and so on.  We are a completely volunteer organization (we receive no tax dollars!) and therefore we rely on the families of our players to share all the work involved with our facilities and programs.

And we need your support of our annual major fundraiser - the Memorial Day Chicken Barbeque, a Tunkhannock tradition.   We will prep, cook, pack, and serve well over 3,000 chicken dinners that day -- and that requires a lot of volunteer work.  Please give your best effort in your particicpation in ticket sales and if your team has a maintenance day lined up with event prep or cleanup we really count on your help.  The proceeds from that day pay for the majority of our facility expenses all year long. 

Finally, on the left side is a list of our local team business sponsors - please support these businesses as they support the youth of their community through organizations like ours.

Still have registration questions that weren't answered by the information on the FAQ tab or the other tabs along the left?   You can email questions about registration or anything else to us at Tunk-Little-League@mail.com  Any questions about your specific team's schedule should be directed to your team's manager or coaches.  For most questions, we'd appreciate if you try to find the information on the tabs at left on this site first, because just like you we are all pretty busy with day jobs and families and all that.  Thanks for visiting our site and we hope you found the info you needed on our programs! 

 ================================== 

Important New Information for Volunteers 

A tab has been added on the menu at left:  Volunteer Requirements

The Volunteer Requirements tab contains information and links on the new volunteer clearance requirements now required for youth volunteers in the state of Pennsylvania beginning July 1, 2015.  If you plan to manage, coach, serve as a practice helper, serve as a regular umpire, or serve on our board you are required to meet both Little League and Pennsylvania standards.

================================== 

And Important New Info on Baseball "League Age" Changes

In fall 2015, Little League International once again made changes to the "league age" date for baseball (only baseball) programs (adjusting some of the changes made a year earlier).  Depending on your player's birth year and month, you may be affected.  Updated information is on the "Ages and Programs" tab at left including link to a current year age chart.  The "league age" dates are set by Little League International not your local Little League.
