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.

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

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.

Active Stretching Warm Ups

Attention TRLL Coaches:

Physical Therapist and managing partner Greg Franceschini and his team from Twin Boro Physical Therapy here in Toms River have volunteered annually at our safety clinic demonstrating the benefits of converting from a pre game static stretching warm up to an active stretching warm up. We have included an example of just some of the recommended warmup videos below.  For more about the program along with several more example videos, please view the below link:

Active Warm Up by Greg Franceschini, PT, Twin Boro


HIP OPENER - The first exercise for the active warm up is the hip opener. The athlete slowly strides forward with 3 steps and then grabs their foot and knee and pulls the foot up toward t…

FRANKENSTEIN WALKS - The athlete raises both arms to shoulder height and keeps them there. They the walk forward for 20 yards and try to kick their leg up to their hand on the same…

BACKWARDS RUN - The athlete slowly jogs backwards for 20 yards. Encourage the athlete to reach back with each leg as far as they can when they jog. The run should have long strides,…

Our 10 Responsible Sports Resolutions:

1. Focus on skills not scores. Too much attention to the scoreboard comes at the expense of attention to other types of success. When youth athletes focus on learning and improving skills, they are taking steps toward immediate and long-term success. Setting attainable skills goals and then reaching them helps kids at every position and in every team role enjoy their sport experience and continue playing.

2. Cheer for efforts not outcomes. This resolution helps athletes concentrate on what they can control. In some sports, outcomes (goals, runs, points) are few and far between, often non-existent for players in defensive positions. But every player can contribute effort that can be the difference maker in a game. Cheer for these efforts will keep them coming.

3. Give your kids space. Sports is an environment to learn powerful life lessons, and many come through challenges and adversity and can be even more powerful when kids learn the lessons for themselves. In the age of "helicopter parents", resolve to resist the temptation to solve issues for your kids in sports. Not getting enough playing time? Encourage your kid to talk to the coach directly to make a case for an enhanced role. Sports is a terrific space to learn and grow if we parents give our kids the space to do so.

4. Commit to the 5:1 ratio. It's hard. We know. But giving kids feedback in a ratio of five positives to one negative can be the difference between a kid hearing your feedback and not hearing it, the difference between continuing to play or quitting. In the beginning, the 5:1 ratio may require writing it down to get the hang of it. But the more you practice it, the easier it becomes.

5. Brush it off. If you're committed to the principles of Responsible Sports, you've probably taught your athlete the idea of brushing off mistakes and moving forward. But are you practicing what you advocate? Do you brush off missed calls by the referee? Do you brush off mistakes made by athletes on the field? If not, your child probably will not do so either.

6. Participate positively. If last year you were frustrated by your child's youth sports experience, take a look in the mirror and try a different approach. Rather than complaining about coaches, arguing calls and riding your kids about their sports, try taking an oath: only say something if you have something good to say. Otherwise, refrain.

7. Thank coaches and officials. Coaches oftentimes only hear from disgruntled parents and athletes. Have you ever thanked a coach for teaching your child a new skill or for being another adult for your child to turn to in tough times? Coaches have emotional tanks that need to be filled too. Do your part! As for officials, we'd like to issue you this challenge: find one opportunity this season to thank the officials. If you see them get a tough call right, let them know after the game.

8. Value the opponent. In an attempt to motivate athletes, sometimes we become negative when it comes to our opponents. But the truth is, we need our opponent to even be able to play the game. A worthy opponent challenges us to be better than we thought we could be. We rise to the challenge and learn in both victory and defeat. Without a worthy opponent, we wouldn't have those opportunities. Resolve to value and honor your opponents and encourage your child to do the same.

9. Become a partner in your child's youth sports experience. Join the team of adults who are supporting positive youth sports experiences. Talk to your child's coach and ask how you can help - with your child in particular and with team as a whole. Volunteer to help out the team Mom or Dad. Offer your assistance to the league.

10. Participate in the Responsible Sports dialog. Resolve to share your thoughts, ideas and experiences with fellow parents and coaches this year. The youth sports experience is not just black and white, but also shades of grey that challenge all of us. By sharing your thoughts, you can not only get advice for folks going through the same challenges, but you could also help others out there who might be struggling with a situation. Resolve to share your experiences to help make youth sports better.
