SDLL Spring 2016 Preparations


With 2016 coming this week, I am sure all of you are turning your attention to baseball. I wanted to take a few moments and share some important information with you.

The following are some key upcoming dates in the SDLL Calendar:

  1. Spring Registration - Begins: January 4, 2016
  2. Spring Evaluations - February 6 and February 13, 2016
  3. Practice Starts - February 24, 2016
  4. Dick’s Shopping Day - February 27, 2016
  5. Opening Ceremonies - April 9, 2016

Since the end of the Fall season, the board has been hard at work preparing for the Spring season. We have completed a review of all the league’s equipment, put together plans for improving some of our playing fields, continued our efforts to provide your child with the best baseball experience possible.

After our Annual Meeting, the new members on the board mentioned there was some confusion regarding how players are assigned to divisions each season. For a complete review of our process, please visit this link.

As we being the countdown to registrations, I wanted to make you aware SDLL has voted to raise dues by $15 beginning with the Spring season. The board takes this decision very seriously. This represents the first SDLL dues increase since 2011. The money will be used to help offset increased costs associated with field maintenance, and the purchase of some newer equipment. If this increase represents a hardship to your family, we do offer need based scholarships. You can apply here.

During the offseason, Little League International changed the rules regarding player age determination. Please use click here to determine your player’s age. The changes will result in some players being the same league age this year as last spring.

In 2015, South Durham Little League initiated the Yusef Shabazz Sportsmanship award. The award is in honor of a long time SDLL Volunteer who passed away last year. The award honors a SDLL player that represents our values of teamwork and sportsmanship. At this time, the board is soliciting nominations. Please complete this form to nominate a player.

Finally, as the Spring Season approaches, we have begun our search for league sponsors and coaches. If you are interested in participating in either manner, please reach out to

Thank you for your time, I look forward to seeing you on the field soon.
