Yousef Shabazz Scholarship Award winner, Trey Hoffman

In 2015 SDLL began awarding the Yousef Shabazz Scholarship Award. Yousef Shabazz was a long time SDLL coach that passed away unexpectedly in 2014. The award goes to a SDLL player based on their sportsmanship, teamwork and overall love of baseball. Past coaches mentioned this player’s love of the game, willingness to play any role and ever present smile. Your 2017 Yousef Shabazz Acholarship Award winner is Trey Hoffman.

DICK'S Sporting Goods Shop Day Was A Success, New Coupons Available

South Durham Little League continued its partnership with DICK'S Sporting Goods' New Hope Commons in 2017. Over the last couple of years, this has been a great benefit to the league as DICK'S has provided needed equipment and discounts on gear for the league, our players and their families.

Our spring Shop Day was held on Sunday, February 26th, and was a big success! Usage of our 2017 special shop day coupon from DICK’s increased by more than 50% from last spring as SDLL saw our special coupon used over 300 times. Thank you to all of the SDLL families and friends that came out to support us and DICK'S Sporting Goods on Shop Day.

DICK'S Sporting Goods has also provided us with additional coupons good for most of this year available here: DICK'S SDLL Coupons (valid through 11/30/17)

We would like to extend a huge thank you to DICK'S Sporting Goods for their continued support and sponsorship of South Durham Little League!
