SWSBSA and LSLL Joint Venture Announcement

Dear SWS Parents and Friends,

It is my pleasure to share with you some very good news for the Lampeter Strasburg School District’s baseball community. 

As you may have already heard, the Strasburg Willow Street Baseball and Softball Association has agreed to enter into a joint venture with the Lampeter Strasburg Little League in an effort to bring these two terrific organizations together.  The board of directors have ratified this arrangement and we are currently finalizing the unification process.This joint venture is long overdue and was made possible because of years of work from board members past and present of both organizations.   

So what does this mean for 2014?  

Our first step is to have all the players in the community register with SWS.  Little League players that prefer to stay with an affiliated team can do so, assuming there is enough interest to field a team.  No players (12U and up) will be assigned to a Little League team from a Lanco team and vice versa.  That decision is solely at the discretion of the player and their parents.As for our 10U level and below, those in-house programs will stay intact and will see a significant jump in 2014 with the inclusion of the players from Little League.  We still have the ability, if at some point down the road there is interest, to form a Little League affiliated team at this level.

As for governance, the SWS Board of Directors will act as an umbrella organization.  Under this umbrella, Little League will have a small Board of Directors so that they remain in compliance with their charter.  A member of that board will be granted a seat on the SWS Board of Directors. Obviously there are all sorts of benefits to this move and likely more that we will discover along the way. Resource sharing alone will help cut costs, giving us the ability to keep our registration fees reasonable for the foreseeable future. 

On January 26th at 7:00pm at Lampeter United Methodist Church (corner of Village and Book Roads) a community meeting is being held to talk about the joint venture and answer questions. In the meantime, please feel free to email me at mattparido@yahoo.com with your concerns.This is indeed an encouraging move for our baseball community, and I want to thank the countless number of dedicated board members and community leaders that helped make it a reality.

Matt Parido,

President SWSBSA
