Too Late to Register for the Spring 2015 Season? OR My Kid's Signed Up. Now What??

 
 
Too Late to Register?
Due to deadlines imposed on our league by Little League International, we are unable to accept any new registrations at this time.  
 
Registration for the spring season usually starts in the fall (late October, early November) and continues through our skills evaluation/try-outs.  If you haven't already done so, please register your email with the website so you will receive emails letting you know about those registration opportunities (and all other news related to SLVLL). 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
 
My Kid's Signed Up . . . Now What? 
So you've registered your child for Little League (maybe for the first time) and you want to know what happens next.  If your child is 7 or older, he or she has attended try-outs (or you have spoken with the player agent).  The purpose of try-outs was to assess skills, and allow us to make our best effort to create balanced teams (in other words, everybody will 'make the team').  AA, AAA (aka Minors) and Majors teams will be drafted on January 25th (for more information on the draft process, see the article link in the menu on the left).  
 
  • If your child is drafted onto a team, you will hear from his/her manager within 24 hours of the draft.
  • Once the draft is completed, A-division and T-ball teams will be formed by the player agent and the respective division reps.  If your child is in one of those divisions, you should hear from a team manager by early February at the latest, and team practices should begin shortly after you are notified.  
  • Opening Day ceremonies are planned for February 28, and the Majors and Minors divisions will kick off the season with games that day.  The AA, A and T-ball divisions will start games during the following week and everybody will continue games through the end of May, and possibly longer for the upper divisions.
 
One more thing - registering to play does NOT automatically register your email with our web site.  If you want to receive emails from SLVLL, you must register your email address with us (click here to do it now!).  You will receive emails reminding you about try-outs, possible field closures, important dates, etc.  We will NOT give or sell your email address to anyone.  However, even though you may have listed your email address on the registration, we do not take it upon ourselves to subscribe you to our mailing list (plus, I just don't have time to do that!).

Santa Cruz Pony League

For players who have aged out of Little League and want to continue playing baseball, the next opportunity to play before high school is the Santa Cruz Pony League.  Many of our players have maintained their skills and excelled in Pony.  For more information, please go to http://www.santacruzponybaseball.com.  The Santa Cruz Pony League is always looking for adult volunteers to help keep the program going, too (nomination forms can be found on their website).  Expect to join many SLV parents there!

A Note from Your Webmaster ~
If you want the most up-to-date information from SLV Little League, you are encouraged to register your email address with our website! 
 
 
Even though you may have shared your email address when you registered your child to play in our league, I do not take it upon myself to subscribe anyone to our mailing list.  You are responsible for doing that.  It's very easy to do, and only takes a minute or two.  It's also easy to unsubscribe, using a link at the end of every email that comes from this site.  By having your email address registered with the SLVLL site, you will receive informative emails regarding upcoming events, registration opportunities, field closures, etc.  I try my best to not inundate your mailbox with too many emails, and your address is not shared with anybody.
 
Please click on this link and add your email address to our list to receive important announcements and occasional update information throughout the year. The website will be a useful resource for finding out what you need to know. Check it out often!
 

Check Out the Archive Section


Past and previous articles now have a home! Look for the Archive of Past Reports link in the menu to the left. As news quickly fades to the back burner, articles of interest can still be found pickled and preserved in this nostalgic area of our website.
