GSA JOINS LITTLE LEAGUE IN 2014
The Gaithersburg Sports Association is proud to announce our affiliation with Little League for the 2014 baseball and softball season. This year marks the 75th anniversary of Little League baseball.
Part of the transition to Little League includes aplayer evaluation for all players above Tee-Ball to asses skills and a player draft to better balance out the skills of teams. All players make a team so in that sense it isn’t a tryout. Also players that re-main in the same division will stay with the team that they were with in2013 (unless they request otherwise.) When a player moves up tothe next division then the player would fall back into the draft (unless that player is protected as one of the three coaches of that team.) Tee-Ball teams are still allowed to form them selves.
The in door workouts will be on March 1st and 2nd and all players (above Tee-Ball level) that are moving to a new division should attend. Opening day festivities are scheduled for April5th. Please see our re-designed website at www.mclittleleague.org for more information. We will need volunteers to coach teams and they should sign up no later than Fe16th given all of the new procedures that will be in place this year.
Being affiliated with Little League has many benefits including participation in the Little League World Series! With the exception of existing players that have been grandfathered in, all players need to reside within ourboundaries which cover most of Montgomery County (excludes part of Rockville, Potomac and all of the Bethesda/ChevyChase area) See our website for the boundary map.
