Hello and welcome to another exciting year of Cougar Baseball!
The purpose of Little League is to assist youth in developing qualities of citizenship, discipline, teamwork and physical well-being, with proper guidance and exemplary leadership.
We will again be playing in Pennsylvania Little League District 14 this year. Dallastown's official Little League border is the Dallastown School District map. We could have a player from Red Lion play for us because they do not have a Little League organization. But that player may not be able to play in the international tournament in post season play. They are eligible to play in the District 14 Clarence Boyd tournament. A player that lives in another LL league border cannot play for us. example: SYC, York, York City
We offer t-ball (5-6 year olds, possibly a 4 year old team depending on interest), minor (7-11 year olds), & major (9-12 year olds) divisions for Little League.
Registration information for the 13-16 & 16-19 wood bat leagues will be communicated in the future.
Cougar’s on-line sign-ups will be as follows:
December 5th – December 31st
T-ball – Free registration & mandatory $115 fundraiser buyout
Minor & Majors - $90 registration & mandatory $115 fundraiser buyout
January 1st – January 31st
T-ball – $15 registration & mandatory $115 fundraiser buyout
Minor & Majors - $105 registration & mandatory $115 fundraiser buyout
(Late registration) February 1st – TBD
T-ball – $30 registration & mandatory $115 fundraiser buyout
Minor & Majors - $120 registration & mandatory $115 fundraiser buyout
We will be offering a $25 discount per sibling again this year.
Please review the 2017 Little League Age Chart in the upper right-hand corner before submitting registration make sure you are registering your child in the appropriate age group.
Prices have slightly increased this year due to the need of umpires, player insurance, field maintence, and our Little League charter registration costs. The organization is 100% volunteer except for our umpires. We are just passing on costs.
But to help to offset some of the registration cost, every child registered will receive a lucky lottery fundraiser book the first week of practice. You will be able to recoup most of your registration fees. This will be cheaper than last year and give the you the ability the sell the tickets easier than the previous fundraiser tickets.
As in the past each family will need to hand in 5 "Be a fan" letters that are addressed and postage stamped in envelopes in order to receive their uniforms. Pick friends, family, and businesses you want to "Be a fan" of Cougar baseball. This is a very popular fundraiser in the community to support our local Little League program.
Player evaluations will be held in February for ages 7-12. This helps us split teams evenly. T-ball players will not need to attend any evaluations.
** Players will be playing in the division at which they evaluate at. Example: Some 11 year olds may evaluate as a minor level player and some 9 year olds may evaluate at the majors level. There may be circumstances that arise, where adjustments will need to be made. **
There is no guarantee that players will be placed together due to carpool, or siblings that do not rate at the same skill level.
Tentative dates for evaluations are February 3rd, 10th, 17th, and 24th. Look for more information on evaluations in the coming weeks.
We hope to start the regular season practices the end of March. This will depend on field conditions. Volunteers will be needed starting in early March to get the fields ready for play. No practices will start until the fields are deemed ready.
Games will start in mid April and run through early June. The rest of June and July will be designated to Little League International and Clarence Boyd tournament teams. This is an option if you would like your player to try out for these post season teams. Our International and Clarence Boyd teams will be picked by a coaches nomination and ballot system as in the past.
At this time, Dallastown Cougars Little League does not offer Challenger Division Baseball, however York Little League is proud to offer it to the physically and mentally challenged children of York County. Please contact
Cougars will provide shirt, hat and socks, you are responsible to purchase gray game pants, baseball spikes, batting helmet, little league approved bat and fielding glove.
Additional information to come regarding Opening Day in April. (Tentatively April 8th) We are planning pictures and other team activities that day. Player attendance is greatly requested.
As every year, we need you. Without volunteers the organization doesn't work. Please consider coaching or helping in some way. You will be required to hand in child clearances documents if you will be working with the children directly. Please see the clearance info under the volunteer tab.
Concessions- We will again be offering drinks and snacks at Cougar field and Lions park fields this year. This will only work if we have volunteers though. As was the case last year, all home teams at Cougar field and Lions Park 1 will be responsible to provide volunteers for the concession stands. This is a way to earn funds for the league to continue to make improvements and also provide a nice convenience for our fans.
We are looking forward to another successful season!!
