District 3 will be holding an umpire clinic on Saturday April 16th at 1 PM at the North Leominster field. This clinic is a great opportunity for young umpires to learn or improve on skills and field mechanics. It is also a great opportunity to learn or brush up on a 2 man umpiring system. If interested in attending, please contact UIC Mike Welch at m1ke1@hotmail.com

For players born on or before April 30, 2005: The new age determination date of August 31 will be effective starting with the 2018 Little League Baseball Season. For the 2016 and 2017 seasons, these players will use the April 30 age determination date.

This was the implementation used for the 2015 season, with players turning 4 to 9 years old during the 2015 calendar year to use the December 31 age determination date. That implementation remains in place, except instead of using December 31, you will use August 31.

Little League® International Launches Education and Training Website: Little League University

LittleLeagueU.org connects volunteers to engaging training videos and informative how-to articles, designed to educate users on the best practices for operating and enjoying a successful local Little League. The content on LittleLeagueU.org will be updated consistently throughout the year to ensure that all volunteers have the information they need on relevant topics. The dedicated, user-friendly portal features customized instruction, an assortment of practice plans for all facets of the program, including District Administrators, League Presidents and local board members, umpires, coaches, and parents. The new website builds on the success of the Coaches Resource Center and Umpire Resource Center that were launched in 2008. LittleLeagueU.org will replace these two websites, providing a one-stop online experience for all Little League volunteers and parents to receive training and educational materials. The Little League University website is responsive and optimized to be viewed on desktop and laptop computers, tablets of all sizes, and mobile devices. A free account can be created using a valid e-mail address; or through the Facebook, Google Plus and LinkedIn social sign in.
