How Exciting!

The start of practice is finally upon us! Managers received their rosters Wednesday Feb 25th! They should be in contact with their players by Saturday, February 28th. Practice and parent meetings will begin on March 1st for some teams and after for others. Please contact your child’s division Player Agent or VP if you have not heard from your team’s Manager by the 1st. Their contact info is available on the board member page on this website.

Thank You

**Attention Softball Players! The 2015 Softball Skills Clinic Hosted by The Volcano Vista Softball Program on March 7th is right around the corner** 

See PHLL News for the flyer with all the details! All players welcome! 

  

**ROOKIE AND TEE BALL DIVISIONS: All players will be selected by the Rookie/Tball player agent and VP by age. They will divide up teams with equal aged players. About 5% of parents requested a certain coach or to be on a team with a neighbor for carpooling. All efforts will be to put siblings on same team, then neighbors and coach preferences.

Any questions about your child's team or division placement you will need to email the Tee Ball/Rookie Player Agent and VP directly: tballandrookies@paradisehillsLL.com and tballandrookiesVP@ParadisehillsLL.com

 

**Last Call for Little Leaguers**

Any players still wishing to play the spring season will be put on a waiting list. As spots become open, players will be called on a first come, first served basis. Parents wishing to put their child's name on the waiting list can email to add their name to the list. Use our info@paradisehillsLL.com address. Send child's name, gender, date of birth, address and best contact name and phone number with WAITING LIST in subject line. Divisional VPs and player agents will compile each list and call parents when a spot becomes open. Thank you.

Fees remain the same as the 2014 season - $110 for first player, $90 for 2nd player, $70 for 3rd player and free for 4th player in household PLUS $40 fundraiser buyout per player due at registration (we have no more fundraiser chocolates or restaurant peelers, sorry).

Please be advised of the new baseball age determination date of December 31st for players born on or after January 1, 2006 and who will turn 4 - 9 during the 2015 calendar year. LL decided to phase in TBall through first year minors only. An example of how this changes things for certain players is 8 year olds who wanted to play in the minors but couldn't in the past will be able to as long as they turn 9 by December 31st.  See the LL Int'l website article regarding this major change.

http://www.littleleague.org/learn/newsletters/CBNewsletter/2014/cbnov14/newplayerage.htm  

All baseball players born before January 1, 2006 will keep their April 30th determination date for the remainder of their LL careers. So, whatever age you are on that date is your league age for the current season. Softball divisions already use the new format.

  A Call For New Members!

If you are a parent, grandparent or other interested person and want to contribute to the community in a significant way, please consider offering your time and talents to sit on the board of directors this year.

  A message from Bernalillo County:

Please remember that all tobacco products are banned for usage on Little League grounds (county property). This includes all cigarettes, cigars, pipes, chewing tobacco. Little League International has added E-cigs, vapor cigarettes and other similar products this year. At this time, the parking lot is still ok to smoke in. Please stay a minimum of 50 feet from all field entrances. Thank You!
