Edwardsville / Glen Carbon Little League Association: Welcome


 Edwardsville / Glen Carbon Little League Association (EGCLLA)

Rainout Cancellation Communication for Games ONLY

This season we will communicate rainout cancellations through our EGCLLA.com website.  Parents/Guardians that have registered their child(ren) will receive email alerts and text messages when games are cancelled. 

We will no longer use the previous procedure which required individuals to call the office phone in order to get a recorded message from the league adminstrator. 

We will make every effort to play the scheduled games, however, if conditions prevent the scheduled games from being played the league office will communicate with teams as soon as possible.

More About the EGCLLA:

The Edwardsville / Glen Carbon Little League Association (EGCLLA) is a privately run, non-profit, volunteer organization that provides recreational summer baseball and tee ball leagues for children in Kindergarten through the 9th grade.  We are not a part of the City of Edwardsville or the Village of Glen Carbon parks departments.  We do however have our practices and play our games on city-owned and village-owned fields.  The EGCLLA is organized and administered by a volunteer Board of Directors. The divisions of teams are formed by the child's current school grade during the Spring term and are organized as follows:

Kindergarten: tee ball (must be in Kindergarten during the Spring term to play that Summer)
1st grade:
coach pitch
2nd grade: pitching machine
3rd grade: pitching machine
4th grade: 1st year pitch with special rules
5th-9th grade: regular baseball

10th-12th grade League - regular baseball

Kindergarten - 2nd grade Divisions:

  • Team rosters are formed by the division league chairman using the school attended. 
  • Your child will be on a team that has some other children from their school. Special requests are not guaranteed. 
  • Kindergarten teams will play 12 games. 
  • 1st - 2nd grade teams will play 16 games.

3rd - 9th grade Divisions (player draft divisions):

  • Team rosters are formed by holding a player draft that is conducted by the coaches picking players from a draft list.

  • Requests to be placed on a specific team or with a specific player are not allowed in the player draft divisions.
