A message for our SKLL families
First and foremost, we hope everyone is healthy and safe in the midst of this most unprecedented time. There is no doubt at this point we are all getting that itch to get out on the ball field! However, we all have to continue being patient and wait a bit longer. We want to let all of our baseball and softball families know that SKLL’s Opening Day festivities and start to the season originally scheduled for April 25th will be postponed. We will revisit a date for rescheduling Opening Day and the start of baseball/softball once we have a sense for when the various restrictions will be lifted allowing us to safely begin our season while abiding by the guidelines put forth by the State and our local community leaders.
Rest assured, our League Board of Directors is planning on having baseball and softball for all kids this spring/summer. We are fortunate that as an organization we have flexibility to make adjustments and amendments to our league schedule and time frame which will play in our favor as we discuss and implement modified schedules moving forward. We hope everyone continues to stay safe and encouraged, and we will continue to get through this together. We know many are trying hard to stay active and healthy while practicing social distancing. Check out these great Little League Backyard Tips and Health Advice that may help to keep us moving forward until we can all return to the field! We will continue to update our SKLL families as we are apprised of new information, so stay tuned and keep those gloves ready!
Opening Day Postponed – New Date TBD

We are excited that our spring baseball and softball season is projected to have even more players and teams than last year! This is great news but also means we need the help of our numerous supportive parents and volunteers to lead these teams. We are seeking managers to come forward and volunteer to take teams in the following divisions:
T-Ball……………Instructional Baseball……… Instructional Softball………..Minors Baseball
Minors Softball…………………Majors Baseball……………..Majors Softball…………..Juniors Baseball
Juniors Softball………………….. Seniors Baseball
We would like to have managers in place in advance of our player evaluations and team selections, so if you are interested in managing a team in any of the above divisions please send an email by February 21st. There is no experience required to manage a team and each team always has the support of multiple coaches and other volunteers.
Thank you for your support!
