SDLL Board of Directors Introduction

Dear SDLL Families,

On behalf of SDLL, I would like to give a HUGE thank you to Lawrence Kahn for serving as our President for the past two years. Lawrence sacrificed family, personal and work time to make SDLL a better league for all of our families. He was a constant advocate for our players, coaches and the league as a whole and we are better because of his dedication to SDLL. Lawrence's passion for baseball and for what Little League stands for will continue to make our league better for years to come. Thank you, Lawrence for all you have done for SDLL (and thank you Jen, Brian and Matthew for being such a supportive family)!

Planning for our Spring 2015 season is underway and you are in great hands with our newly elected Board of Directors! This year's Board of Directors are:
Jill Simpson-President, Jim Tarpey-VP and Coaching Coordinator, Kelly Budzinski-Player Agent, Bob Cole-Treasurer, Mark Neill-Saftey Officer and Information Officer, Marc Clifford-Secretary, John Perry, Lawrence Kahn, Jackie Sawyer, Erica Caveney, Pam Turner, Gary Gartner, Ryan Lockamy, Kylie Brockenfelt, Shana Davis Riley and Leo Fitzsimmons

David Keaveney, Avery Goldstein and Chris Jones have all left the Board, but THANK YOU to all 3 of you for your dedication to SDLL! You will all be missed.

We will get lots of information to you within the next month about the upcoming Spring season, but registration will open on January 1! Take care. --Jill Simpson

Annual Meeting and Call for Board Volunteers

South Durham Little League will be holding its Annual Meeting on Sunday, October 12, 2014 at 4:00pm at the Kappas of Durham Foundation Community Center. This meeting is open to all SDLL members and we encourage everyone to attend.  We will discuss the State of the League, our future goals, and answer any questions that you may have.

SDLL is a volunteer organization and we are in need of more help due to tremendous recent growth.  One of the ways to get involved is to join the Board of Directors. The Board is a representation of the community and should be a mix of coaches and parents of various aged players. We are especially in need of representation from parents of players ages 4-9.  The Board is very active and very hands-on with the operations of the league. There is a lot of planning and effort that goes into making our league a success.  Board Members are expected to assist with at least one or more of the tasks:

  • Treasurer
  • Secretary 
  • Player-Agent and/or Assistant Player-Agent 
  • Uniforms Coordinator 
  • Sponsorship Coordinator 
  • Slugfest Coordinator 
  • Opening Ceremonies Coordinator 
  • Scheduling Coordinator 
  • Durham Bulls Tickets Coordinator 
  • Umpire Liaison 
  • League Commissioner

Please let us know if you or someone you know might be interested by submitting this form.

Welcome to Fall Ball

As you may know, SDLL focuses on player development during the Fall season.   This year we are offering weekly clinics within some divisions which promise to be both informative and fun.  Attendance is not required but we encourage all to take advantage of this opportunity for additional instruction.  

Please be aware that all league-wide communications will be made via the following: league email, email from coaches, posting on Facebook and posting here at the website.  Every attempt will be made to keep practices and games as scheduled; however, some decisions are unfortunately made at the last minute as we experienced this past week.  

Finally, please be aware we are working quickly to correct any uniform errors and field maintenence issues.

Thanks again for playing with South Durham Little League!  We appreciate your support!
