Mt Tabor/Montavilla Merge

To the Families and Players of Mt Tabor Little League
It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that we announce plans to move forward with a merger between Mt Tabor and Montavilla Little League to be completed in the 2013 season.
Over the past few months, our boards have reviewed ways in which we can improve our league in the face of many challenges – player attrition due to other sports like lacrosse, soccer, competing leagues, and increased fees to permit Park and School fields, and a struggling economy. For many years, the current boundaries haven’t aligned with elementary and middle school boundaries creating added strain for families whose players would like to play with their classmates.
With these considerations in mind, each league plans to select and create a committee to work cohesively, pool resources, and work towards a mutually beneficial conclusion: merge our leagues so that we can build one united league and work together to build the best brand of baseball and softball for our neighborhood, schools, and community in Southeast Portland. This will also remove the restraint that several of our players have faced by allowing our families that attend the same schools and live in the same neighborhoods to play together.
As many of you know, Mt Tabor and Montavilla both have proud histories and strong traditions, and with this merger we plan to build on these traditions. Each league could continue to stand on its own, however together we can be so much more. We now can come together as one cohesive league to enjoy the benefits and camaraderie of pooled financial resources, create more competitive teams, remove residency limitations, build a larger pool of volunteers, have a bigger base for community sponsors, provide more economical fields for permitting practice/games through Parks, and enable us to have the best possible league in which our children can participate.
This merger cannot happen overnight and we have a lot of work ahead of us but we are excited for the outcome for our players and community. For the 2012 season, both leagues will be governed by their existing boards and support their families with their financial base, however we will be combining our teams at all levels of play in both baseball and softball. This combination begins our transition to one league. This combination allows classmates in school to finally play on each other’s team, allows a larger pool of talented coaches to work with our children and begins the positive mingling of our families and community. Our softball divisions have been experiencing this positive combination for over two years during All-Stars as our two leagues have successfully brought the girls together, practiced, and competitively played at tournament bringing home TWO District Championships that we proudly sent off to State. In the 2011 season, our combine “Triple Threat” 10-11 Softball Team consisting of players from Lents, Montavilla and Mt Tabor brought us home a State Championship. We have seen the success of combo teams and look forward to bringing them to our 2012 regular season where our players, we hope, will see the benefits of better competitive edge like our girls have seen in tournament.
The merger will obviously come with some challenges and possible road bumps but we ask that everyone work with us, together, to blend our traditions and families. Please remain patient as we move forward with this process but we also welcome your input and involvement during this exciting time. The future is very bright for our league and our kids. We have a future of some of the most economically permitted fields in the Portland area, we have great volunteers, amazing sponsors, the potential for an increase in registration with our strength as one league allowing us to continue to have a great Little League experience for your families for years to come.
Respectfully yours,
Summar Lancaster

Land O’Frost has sponsored over 275,000 children in youthsports leagues across the country since the program began in 2002.  Our motivation to grow this program inthe future is fueled by the energy we see in children and their familiesparticipating together in healthy, well-rounded experiences.  We would like to make a stronger effortto better communicate and be more closely involved with the leagues, theparents, and the children wearing Land O’Frost jerseys.  By inviting the leagues to post a speciallink on their own websites, we hope to build successful directcommunication.  The link will takeparents to a special page on the Land O’Frost website that is only accessibleby that link.  The information weare requesting includes name, complete mailing address, email address ifavailable, and league name.
