Our season schedule is as follows:
Late February – Registration Opens
Mid-March – Registration Deadline
Mid-March – Head Coaches Select Teams (you will be notified by your coach)
Early April – Practices Begin (field & weather dependent)
Mid-May – Games Begin (once games begin, there typically are no more practices)
Mid-May – Opening Day Festivities (this is the highlight of the season!!!)
May 28, Memorial Day, 8a – generally no games are held Memorial Day Weekend (May 25-28), but all teams are invited to march in the Orwigsburg Memorial Day Parade.
Late June – Closing Ceremonies/Player Recognition Day (trophies & movie)
Practices and games are generally limited to 1 hour in duration.
Once practices begin, each team will generally practice once during the week (M-Th, either 5:30p or 6:30p) and once on the weekend – so, 2 practices a week.
Once games begin, practices will end. Each team will generally play once during the week (M-Th, 6p) and once on Saturday (anywhere from morning to mid-day) – so, 2 games a week. There might be exceptions if we have an odd number of teams.
Fridays and Sundays are generally reserved for makeup games and practices.
As you can imagine, we are a high-turnover league. As such, we are ALWAYS looking for parents willing to coach. If you are interested, GREAT!!!! But before you can, you will need to be cleared by the League.
ALL assistant and head coaches and volunteers MUST provide copies of the appropriate background clearances in accordance with State law.
REQUIRED BACKGROUND CLEARANCES
Per PA Act 153 of 2014, as of July 1 2015, all volunteers must submit copies of the following clearances to OAYL (email@example.com):
FBI Clearance (only required if NOT a continuous resident of PA for last 10 years)
All those planning to help coach in any capacity will need to have these clearances. The good news is that the application fees for volunteers has been waived by the Commonwealth for the state clearances (the FBI clearance fee is NOT waived however). Copies of the clearances MUST be submitted to OAYL by either emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org, mailing them to our PO Box, or dropping them off at registration.
For more information on the required clearances (and perhaps updated links), please visit the PA Department of Human Services website.
YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO PARTICIPATE IN PRACTICE OR GAMES WITHOUT THE REQUIRED CLEARANCES.
OAYL will notify you when you have been accepted to participate.
All verified and accepted coaches will receive a uniform shirt and hat for wear during the games. To offset the coach uniforms costs (~$20 for shirt & hat), we ask that you reuse yours from last year if possible. If you need a new coach shirt and/or hat, we request a $5 donation per uniform. This is a request, and is NOT MANDATORY. You can include this donation with your online registration payment.
Don't feel like constantly checking our website for updates? Wondering if today's practice or game will be canceled due to weather?

Please note that we are not affiliated with either Orwigsburg Little League or Orwigsburg Area Girls Softball. Although most of our kids "graduate" to these two, outstanding leagues, we are an independent organization relying on our own funding sources. Being independent also means our kids are not subject to strict rules regarding residency or age (within safe reason).
Every kid that wants to play deserves to play!
