News and Announcements
It is with great disappointment that we announce that the Aragona Pembroke Little League Board of Directors has voted to cancel our 2020 baseball and softball season.
While this was not an easy decision to make, there are still too many unknowns about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and the health of our players, volunteers and spectators was the overwhelming factor. Our league’s safety is of utmost importance to us.
We had hoped to have an expanded fall season and began planning with the thought that Virginia Beach children would return to their classrooms in September and our area would see a decrease in the number of COVID-19 cases over the summer. Sadly, this is not the case and the Governor’s latest executive order for the Eastern Region of Virginia demonstrated that additional restrictions could be put in place in the future should conditions in our area not improve.
Players currently registered for 2020 will automatically have their fees applied to registration for the Spring 2021 season. Should you prefer a refund of your 2020 registration fees, in-person requests will be taken at Witchduck Bingo Hall, 660 N Witchduck Road at the following times:
- Monday, August 17th from 5 to 8pm
- Saturday, September 12th from 9am to 12pm
Again, if you do not attend one of these sessions to request a refund, your player’s 2020 registration fees will be credited towards the Spring 2021 season. No email requests for refunds will be accepted.
Thank you for your continued support of APLL, and we hope you and your family continue to stay safe during these challenging times.
We will be accepting new player registrations on:

APLL Registration Fee Scholarships are available for families in need – applications will be available during our registration session at Witchduck Hall.
The 2020 season will be 10 weeks in length, starting August 22nd and ending October 30th – essentially a spring season played in the fall.
We realize that some families may not be comfortable with play starting during the late summer, or may have other commitments for the fall of 2020. For those players, the 2020 registration fee will be applied to our 2021 spring season. Other families may not be able to play with us at all because they are moving from the area or have experienced an extreme hardship. We will also accept registration fee refund requests for currently rostered players at this session.
We continue to thank all our families for their patience and for keeping an open mind since we truly are in uncharted territory at this time. Our league is a non-profit organization and all registration fees go right back to our kids and the complex.

We all look forward to getting the kids back on the fields playing the game they love. In the interim, the APLL Board of Directors wish you all health, safety and determination as we all move forward through is unchartered territory.

The June meeting and annual elections, originally scheduled for Monday, June 1, 2020, will be held on Monday, September 14, 2020.

As you are well aware, the situation surrounding the coronavirus is rapidly evolving. Given the latest developments and following the direction of Little League Baseball International, Aragona Pembroke Little League will continue to suspend all operations through May 11, 2020.
We recognize that this is the heart of the traditional Little League season, and we share in the great disappointment that many are feeling surrounding this additional pause in the 2020 season. However, it is our hope that by doing this, we will all play a small, but important part in flattening the curve in the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
We apologize for the inconvenience this disruption may cause, but believe it’s in the best interest of the safety and well-being of our players and our community.
