Registration is open!

With the busy Holiday season behind us, it is time to prepare for the upcoming season.  While we hope that this season can be as normal as possible, we are ready for anything that may be thrown our way and have a plan and policies in place to make a season happen like we did last year.

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
If you are new to RLL, it will require setting up an account. That being said, a copy of your child’s Birth Certificate will need to be uploaded before you are able to proceed with the registration.  

While registering, you may be given the option to register for multiple divisions as some age groups overlap.  For example, if you have a son who is league age 6, you will be given the option to register for TBall or Coach Pitch.  The child must play 1 year of TBall in order to be able to play Coach Pitch if he or she is not 7 yet.  

Please keep in mind that registration will be closing on February 26th.T-Ball (Baseball/Softball), Juniors (Baseball/Softball) and Senior Baseball registration closes on March 26, 2021.  

Any girls interested in playing Seniors Softball will have the opportunity to play in the District wide league.

ASSESSMENTS/DRAFT PROCESS
Due to the current COVID restrictions that are in place we will not be holding assessments this year.   With this being said, the board and coaches aim to create a positive shared experience for all youngsters in the community and this year since we will not be holding assessments the RLL Board will be working with Coaches through the drafting process to help create balanced teams.

BASEBALL
Majors Division:  The number of teams is based on the number of 12 year olds that are signed up.  All 12 year olds will be drafted first.  Followed by 11 year olds and younger until all spots are filled. 

Minors Division :
AAA:  All remaining 11 year olds not drafted into the Majors will be placed on  a AAA team, any open spots on the teams will be filled by 10 year olds and possibly some 9 year olds.

AA: Is made up of all the remaining 10 and 9 year olds not drafted in AAA

SOFTBALL
Majors Division: The number of teams is based on the number of 12 year olds that sign up and is typically compiled of 12 and 11 year olds.

Minors Division: Number of  teams are based on the number of 9 and 10 year olds that sign up. 

COACHES:
We are always looking for Coaches in our younger levels: T-Ball, Coach Pitch, AA.  These divisions are usually our largest and sometimes hard to fill. Please note on the registration form if you are interested in coaching.  If you have any questions regarding coaching please contact  Jeff Geshel at [email protected]

VOLUNTEER & COMMITTEE OPPORTUNITIES:
We would like to welcome Mark Meier and Tenille Schlachter to our board.  Mark is our Umpire in Chief and will be working with our Umpires and Tenille has filled the role as Vice President.  Thank you Mark and Tenille.
