Dear Little League Parents,
Last night the board of Pocono Mountain East Little League voted unanimously to merge with Big Pocono Little League to form a single league for all children residing in Mt Pocono Boro, Barrett, Jackson, Paradise or Pocono townships and/or those children attending Pocono Mountain School District (Swiftwater Campus), Monsignor McHugh or Evergreen Charter School. Little League International made this possible by allowing children the option to play in a sanctioned league where they live or ‘where they go to school’
The new larger league will retain the Pocono Mountain East Little League Charter.
This merger will provide better baseball and softball opportunities for our children, streamlined administrative functions and a league fully prepared to feed middle and high school athletics. Simply put, it will provide all children a chance to play with their friends and classmates from T-ball on.
With that said please recognize there will be some travel (within the Tannersville, Reeders, Mt Pocono, Cresco areas) for older divisions but little to none for lower ages of T-Ball and Coach Pitch. We will be working with coaches to encourage split practices between locations, game fields used etc. to help offset this minor inconvenience.
Of course there are some logistical issues to fully work out and that is where we ask you as parents to observe that there is no shortage of volunteer opportunities and your help is now needed more than ever. The first thing we ask you is to take advantage of the on-line registration located on the website.
These are very exciting times for our children but we know there will be questions. Please visit the website for league officer contact information, physical sign up times (both at Dicks Sporting Goods and Paradise Township building) and other communications in the future.
