South Wall Little League: Welcome

Monday, March 2

 

Hello SWLL Families,

Baseball season is right around the corner…

While 2014 was a great year, we’re working to make 2015 even better.

To start, we are partnering with Big League Talent, to enhance our Pioneer Division (ages 6 – 7). This division will now include one night per week of instructional lessons from Big League Talent at no additional cost to the players, in addition to the 1 game per week. We feel that this age group is the perfect age to learn and develop the baseball fundamentals that they will use as a foundation and build upon for the rest of their baseball careers. And who better to teach them then a former professional.

In addition, we will be setting up a Skills and Drills night open to all players ages 7-12. There will be two 90 min sessions (split by age group) also lead by Big League Talent. This program is offered only to SWLL families at a reduced rate. More info to follow!

In addition to all the progress that we’ve made at our facilities last year, we’re looking to make even more this year. Stay tuned and keep your eyes open, you’re going to like what you see! Looking forward to a great season and please remember to register! Registering sooner helps us in planning out the season.

AED DEVICES

Please be aware that SWLL has invested in three (3)  Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) for use in case of a heart related (cardiac arrest) emergency.

AEDs are located as follows:

1) Lower Shack Bathroom near the Majors Field ( closest to Tilton Corner entrance)

2) 1 in the Junior Shed ( located at the Junior Filed closest to Atlantic Avenue entrance)

3) 1 in the Softball Shed  ( behind the Softball Field closest to Atlantic Avenue entrance)

After Collapse-The Clock Starts!

Time to defibrillation is probably the single most important determinant of survival in sudden cardiac arrest. Generally, every 1-minute delay in defibrillation decreases the likelihood of survival by approximately 10%.

If you recognize that someone is in cardiac arrest, have someone call 911 immediately - but don't wait for paramedics to act! Send someone to retrieve the AED immediately. Start CPR immediately until the AED arrives. Unpack the AED and follow the simple instructions provided with the AED. Immediate action makes a huge difference in the survival rate of cardiac arrest. YOU can make the difference by acting quickly.

NEW GARBAGE POLICY - SWLL HAS ADOPTED A NEW 'CARRY IN, CARRY OUT' GARBAGE PROGRAM

The goal of the progam is twofold, fewer cans help reduce costs and fewer mosquitoes, flies, skunks, racoons and other pests. Past seasons have left our fields and dugouts littered with debris and the burden of cleanup left to board members, managers and coaches. It is unsitely and reflexs badly on our league. Please help us to keep our fields and grounds clean.

New Ruling From Little League

FOR BASEBALL DIVISIONS ONLY In April, 2014 the International Congress approved the new league age determination amendment for Little League Baseball®. To implement the new amendment, it was decided to include a three-year waiting period to execute the change, starting in 2018. Questions from the field were raised about the impact the change would have on players that were currently league age 8 under the traditional system. Using feedback from Little League® parents through our District Administrators, the Little League International Board of Directors adjusted the April-approved implementation strategy in order to modify the impact on all of our minor and major division players. The adjustment also allows for an easier transition for players in the early years of Little League participation. As a result of this recent adjustment to the implementation strategy, effective immediately, any player born on or after January 1, 2006 who will turn the ages of 4-9 during the 2015 calendar year will be eligible to participate in a local Little League program and will use the new age determination date of December 31 for the reminder of their Little League Baseball career. Players will still be assigned to a division based on local league divisional structure.

Consequently, players born prior to January 1, 2006 will continue to utilize the current age determination date of April 30 for the remainder of their Little League career.

As stated, with this implementation strategy adjustment the impact on our players will be reduced, with the exception of a marginal impact on players currently participating in the very early stages of their Little League career. Furthermore, our continued focus on fun, fitness and fundamentals at the Tee Ball Division will assist local leagues as they look to provide a smooth transition to the Coach/Machine Pitch divisions of play while still developing a passion for the game as well as focusing on skill development. This change ensures that no player will lose a year of participation in the Little League Majors Division that culminates with the annual Little League Baseball World Series in South Williamsport, Pa.
