Handout: Challenger Classic 2014

  Whittier Little League - 90 ft. Diamond Clinics

(Open to players that will be league age 12 for the 2015 season & older ONLY)

GENERAL INFORMATION

These clinics are open to all players who have either participated in the Intermediate, Junior, or Senior leagues, or will be eligible for these divisions for the upcoming 2015 season. Practices will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays, times to adjust based on daylight. Players will need to sign a medical release and release of liability.

INSTRUCTORS AND FORMAT

Coach Bob Small has volunteered to hold these clinics and should be considered informal. They will be conducted as regular practice sessions and format will vary depending on the level of participation. You can expect batting practice, infield/outfield practice, and a building of confidence as they get used to increased level of play from our returning players. This is a great way to get a feel for field changes from the Major level. Standard protective gear should be worn at all times.

CONTACT INFO

For more information please call: Bob Small @ (562) 907-8201 or email at smallbobwll@yahoo.com
$10 donation to help purchase additional balls is appreciated


Whittier Little League General Information

Parents have called requesting information about our league regarding practices, game times, and locations. Information on these topics can be found on this website. Here is some general information about Whittier Little League.

Most of our games will be played at Orchard Dale Elementary located on the corner or Mulberry Drive and Cole Road. Our Junior Division (ages 13 & 14) play at York Field. Our season usually begins on the first week of March and runs through the first week of June. Games are held on Saturdays at the beginning of the season with weekday games (Monday-Thursday) beginning once Daylight Savings time occurs.

Practices are usually held twice a week at local schools or parks. The location, days, and times are set by the Manager of the team.

T-Ball Players (ages 4 to 7) do not attend try-outs. They are automatically placed on a team. T-Ball Minor and T-Ball Major divisions are considered developmental, and the fundamentals of Little League Baseball are taught to these players.   Players that are 7 year olds have the option to try out for Single A division. Try-outs at the next level do not guarantee placement at the next level. Selected managers and a league representative will evaluate each player's abilities and will use that information to draft players during the division's draft.

Players, ages 8 and older, will have to a attend try-outs which take place in early January. Each player needs to try-out in his/her age group but can request to try-out at the next level if the parent feels that his/her abilities are suited for the next level.

All drafts and teams should be formed by the end of January (provided the weather holds out and scheduled try-outs proceed) so teams can start their practices during the month of February. Teams should be ready for play and to start the season the first week of March.

If you have any questions please e-mail us at WhittierLittleLeague@yahoo.com and we will respond to you as soon as we can.
