Elmer Little League: News & Announcements

Elmer LL Fall Softball & Baseball Registration - July 28 and August 4
Elmer LL will once again hold a Fall Ball program in baseball and softball. Registration will be held on Mondays,  July 28 and August 4, at the Elmer Borough Hall, 6 pm to 8 pm.

Levels of Play
Teams will be formed if there are enough players, and more importantly, coaches. This is a great opportunity for parents to get involved. 

Softball: minors (ages 9 and 10), majors (11 and 12) and seniors (13-16)
Baseball: minors (ages 7-9), majors (9-13) and juniors (13-14). Players age 9 can choose minors or majors and players age 13 and played in the majors in the spring can chose to stay at majors or move up to juniors.

Both leagues will schedule approximately 12 games, but there will be no playoffs. The Fall Ball programs are developmental in nature so players are given opportunities to play multiple positions. 

Depending on the number of teams formed at each level, we may have to travel to surrounding communities in order to complete the schedule. 

As always, non-Elmer LL players are welcome to join the fall league. A flat $60 fee will be charged to all players. For more information contact John Roberts for softball (danabrygrace@aol.com) and Joe Cardona for baseball (cardona@rowan.edu).

    Safety Report "Hits and Runs, Bumps and Bruises: Health, Safety and Injury Prevention are the Keystone of Little League"

    Dear Little League Friends:
     
    For more than a half-century, Little League International has maintained extensive records on injuries in Little League games and practices. These records have been used over the years to monitor trends and, when necessary, to effect positive changes in the Rules and Regulations.

    In many cases, these changes have eventually been adopted in other youth baseball and softball programs, as well as professional baseball. It is just one of the many aspects of Little League that sets us apart from all other youth baseball and softball programs.


    For the first time, Little League International has produced a comprehensive report on the history of Little League's efforts and accomplishments regarding the wellbeing of its participants and volunteers. This white paper entitled "Hits and Runs, Bumps and Bruises: Health, Safety and Injury Prevention are the Keystone of Little League" provides an extensive review of advancements in these areas.

    We invite you to review this important document, produced by the Little League International Communications Division. The white paper can be found at the Little League International web site by clicking on the link to the PDF below, or by pasting it into your web browser:

    Concussion Information Provided for Little League Volunteers

    Little League Baseball and Softball has always been at the forefront regarding the safety and well-being of children.

    In an effort to provide all Little League personnel with the most current information on concussions, the youth baseball organization has created an informational page on its website that also includes links to training information and ways to recognize signs and symptoms of a concussion.

    As the assessment and treatment of concussions and concussion-like symptoms has evolved, many states have enacted laws designed to educate people about concussions, and protect the health and safety of young athletes. 

    Little League International has compiled a summary of all currently-existing and proposed state laws regarding concussions. The summary of concussion-related state laws can be found at: http://www.littleleague.org/learn/programs/childprotection/concussions.htm.

    Some state laws are only applicable to school-sponsored athletics, or to activities taking place on school-owned property. Other laws are applicable to all youth sports organizations, whether, or not, they are affiliated with a school district.
     
    It is strongly-recommended that local leagues consult with legal counsel in their jurisdiction to determine the applicability of state laws regarding concussions occurring while children are participating in the Little League program.

    Not every state has adopted concussion laws and not every state's concussion law is applicable to a local Little League program. Nevertheless, in keeping with its focus on protecting the health, safety and welfare of children, Little League Baseball and Softball strongly encourages all leagues and teams to not only comply with any applicable state laws, but also to review the information and training materials on concussions which is available (free of charge) on the Centers For Disease Control website. The latest concussion information from the Centers for Disease control can be found at: http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/HeadsUp/online_training.html.

    It is essential that each league review this material in order to understand its responsibilities regarding when and how to address concussions.
