Thank You Bert Pero for 30+ Years of Service!
TRLL and the Township of Toms River recently recognized with appreciation the 30+ years of service of outgoing TRLL President Bert Pero. Bert has selflessly served our community in various roles at TRLL for more than 3 decades. During our annual membership meeting held on 10/15/2015, Toms River Mayor Thomas Kelaher presented Bert and TRLL with a new road sign that is destined for the entry of TRLL to be named "PERO WAY".
Thank You is not enough for all you have done for our Little League and all of the young athletes that have played here through the years. Your service and dedication to TRLL will ALWAYS be remembered and honored.
|Mayor Kelaher presents "Pero Way" to Bert & TRLL|
Become a TRLL Volunteer!
Why Should I Become a Volunteer?
Little League Baseball and Softball is an organization designed to build good citizens. It is a program of leadership, preparing today's youth to be tomorrow's leaders. At the local level, Little League relies on a devoted legion of adult volunteers to help ensure that the organization remains structured and runs smoothly. Your local Little League program is always looking for responsible and enthusiastic individuals to support and coordinate Little League events and activities. As a volunteer, you should have a keen interest in the safety, well-being, and overall development of children. By reading further, you will discover that the benefits of volunteering are endless. You will also gain a better understanding of why you should become involved, who volunteers are, what you can do, and how you can sign up.
Who Can Volunteer?
Anyone can apply to become a volunteer. Whatever talents or skills you have, we can use them! Across the country, volunteers are grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles, retirees, community leaders, former Little Leaguers, friends, neighbors, and more. Any community member who wishes to become a volunteer may apply.
All parents of children involved in Little League Baseball and Softball are strongly encouraged to volunteer. As a parent, volunteer, you have the opportunity to spend quality time with your child in a safe, fun-filled environment. Oftentimes, parent and child social lives parallel each other. Volunteering allows your life and your child's life to intersect on common ground, with shared interests and goals.
On rare occasions, Little League, through District Administrators and your local Board of Directors, may deny individuals the privilege of volunteering for reasons, past or present, that may be detrimental to the positive development of young people, other volunteers, and/or Little League International. When you apply to become a volunteer, you give the local Little League organization the right to conduct necessary background checks.
How Do I Become A Volunteer?
TRLL will announce multiple opportunities throughout the year when volunteer help will be required. Parents, take a minute to fill out the volunteer form while registering your child. If you are not a parent and would like to volunteer, take a minute to fill out the form while visiting your local registration location. The 2015 Little League volunteer application form can also be downloaded here.
What Can I Volunteer To Do?
No experience is required to become a volunteer. Most of the volunteer opportunities require little or no training. Your local league will provide you with any necessary training (as well as support and encouragement), as they deem necessary. The best volunteers are those who are able to bring added enjoyment to the game simply by being themselves. What you see during Little League games is a mere fraction of what you can do as a volunteer. You can volunteer to help in virtually any aspect of Little League Baseball or Softball.
TRLL and the Chevy Youth Baseball Program
TRLL would like to thank the Chevy Youth Baseball program and Lester Glenn Chevrolet on Route 37 in Toms River for their continued support of Toms River Little League in 2013!
Now in its seventh year, Chevy Youth Baseball is a grassroots initiative that establishes a positive relationship between local dealers and the communities they serve. Chevy Dealers sponsor their local youth baseball leagues as a part of Chevrolet's nationwide commitment to support youth sports, one community at a time.

TRLL 9-12 Year-old Evaluations - Saturday 2-25-2017
TRLL 2017 Majors 9/10 & 11/12 yr-old Divisions evaluations will be held this coming Saturday 2/25/17 at the TRLL complex (indoor facility) any time between 9:00am - 1:00pm. Note that we are currently expecting a heavy volume of players at 9:00am. Consider arriving any time after ~10:00am until 1:00pm if your schedule permits.
Players will be evaluated in a brief session of hitting, catching, throwing and running within small groups on a first-come, first-served basis. The complex is located at 181 Mapletree Road.
All Little League age 9-12 year-old players must participate, including manager's children. This will be a complete redraft of the entire Majors 9/10 & 11/12 yr old divisions for the Spring 2017 season. We plan to form all other (non-draft) age-group teams in the first week of March.
Day of instructions:
- Each player must first sign-in upstairs at the main complex building (board room), find a seat and wait to be called.
- Each player will need a glove, helmet and bat. No cleats - sneakers only.
*If your child cannot attend the evaluation, YOU MUST email the Player agent Eamon Mulholland (email@example.com) and you must receive a reply from the Player Agent informing you that your child will be excused and added to the draft list. If you don't receive a confirmed email response, that means your child MUST attend tryouts or he/she may not be placed on a team.
Additionally, all league fees, including the work bond, must be paid in-full prior to participation. Please be prepared to reconcile any outstanding registration fees and/or work bond ($200 7/31/2017 post-dated check) on the day of the evaluation if you have not already.
