IMPORTANT - MANDATED NEW JERSEY STATE LAW
Sayrewood South Little League Families,
Please be advised that as of April 2007, the State of New Jersey passed a law mandating that any child under the age of 18, that requires corrective lenses for better eye sight, that participate in any organized sports are required to wear safety sport glasses. Regular fashion eyewear does not provide the proper protection to prevent serious eye injuries.
SWS Little League would like to announce a program to help enhance the continued safety of your children while participating in youth sports. One of our sponsors, Drs. Mark & Silberberg will provide a discount of 25% off a complete pair of safety sport glasses. In addition, a $15.00 donation, for every pair of safety sport glasses sold, will be contributed back to the SWS Little League. A current and valid eyeglass prescription is all that is needed.
If you have any further questions, please contact the doctor’s office at (732) 583-9797 or see our website for contact information

Athletic Code of Conduct
In accordance with the Law in the State of New Jersey and in conjunction with Old Bridge Township Ordinance NO. 47-03, Sayre Woods South Little League will begin enforcing an Athletic Code of Conduct policy. Before the start of the season, each parent and coach will be asked to sign a statement acknowledging their acceptance and understanding of the consequences of violating such policy. Uniforms will not be distributed without such signed statements. Forms will distributed to parents by team managers. You can read the Athletic Code of Conduct by going to our Handouts section or by clicking here.
Some companies encourage and recognize the efforts of employees who devote their personal time to volunteer activities. These employees who do substantial volunteer work for nonprofit, tax-exempt public charities in their community are usually encouraged to apply to their company for a grant to their organization. As an active volunteer through our work bond program, any league family who is able to secure such a grant from their employer, may have all or portions of their registration fee waived depending on the monetary size of the grant. Ask your employer if they provide volunteer grants and help support our league.

SWSLL Family Recognition Wall Continues to Grow
As you know SWSLL is always trying to raise money in order to provide the best possible Little League experience for your child. As you can see there have been many changes at our fields over the last couple of years and along with our commitment as board members, we will continue to do so for the future success of the League. We have come up with a new fundraising method that is quite unique and in time will grow into something very special. This is not required by any family in any way and is only an alternative option developed by SWSLL to try and raise money.
As you enter the complex, you will notice the SWSLL RECOGNITION WALL. This has been put in place and is open for any family to participate. With a one-time donation to the league of $50.00, you will have a special plaque ordered and mounted on the wall for everyone to see. (PLEASE NOTE: this is not for businesses). Check out the plaques that are already mounted and get an idea from one of them. They come in various colors to choose from and can have your FAMILY NAME, an “ IN MEMORY OF” to remember a loved one, even from GRANDMA & GRANDPA TO THEIR GRANDCHILD. These plaques will remain on the wall each year. As the years go by, the many plaques that have graced our wall will be a lasting reminder of the many families who were a part of our family oriented little league.
Once again, the money raised goes directly to SWSLL , which will benefit all members of our league.
