2017 7/8 and 8/9-year old Tournament Teams
2016 Post-Season Tournament Brackets (FINAL updates 6/6/16)!
Local Post-Season Tournaments! TOC's and All-Stars Brackets!
Starting Sunday, June 12, SLVLL will have four teams competing in local competitions - 7/8 Tournament, 8/9 Tournament, and the Minors/AAA and Majors Tournament of Champions, which will run from June 12th through June 22nd. (** Please note - all brackets below are from the District 39 website; THEY will update - I have NO control over how quickly or slowly that takes place. **)
Our 7/8 and 8/9 teams are listed with our upper division All-Star teams HERE.
The 7/8 Tournament is being hosted right here in SLV (bracket HERE)! Due to prior field maintenance commitments at the high school, we will be hosting most (if not all) of our tournament at Highlands fields. We hope the 7/8 families will chip in and help with Snack Shack and field prep and clean up duties, along with many board members who have already committed their time to the task. SLV eliminated in Game 13, Cap/Soquel defeated Scotts Valley and became 7/8 Champion after winning Game 14.
The 8/9 Tournament (click HERE for the tournament bracket) will be hosted by Scotts Valley LL. SLV was eliminated in Game 10, Santa Cruz American was ultimately triumphant against Scotts Valley, claiming the 8/9 championship in Game 15.
Our AAA Nationals will be representing SLVLL in the Minors/AAA Tournament of Champions (bracket HERE), hosted by Pajaro Valley LL. (Seventeen-game tournament, nine teams - LOST first game (Game #3) to Cap/Soquel, 8-2; WON second game (Game #7) over Live Oak, 5-2; WON third game (Game #11) over Santa Cruz American, 10-8; WON fourth game (Game #14) over Aptos, 12-11; WON fifth game (Game #15) over Cap/Soquel, 11-7; WON sixth game (Game #16) over Scotts Valley, 6-5; LOST seventh (and final, for the championship) game to Scotts Valley, 12-3.)
AWESOME job, Nationals!
You may not have won the district championship, but you are OUR champions!
The Majors Nationals will represent SLVLL in the Majors TOC's (bracket HERE), co-hosted by the Cap/Soquel and Live Oak Little Leagues. (Seventeen-game tournament, nine teams - WON first game (Game #3) over Santa Cruz American, 11-2; WON second game (#9) over Santa Cruz National, 16-0; WON third game (Game #13) over Cap/Soquel, 4-1; LOST fourth game (#16) to Cap/Soquel, 2-4; WON fifth game (#17 - for the championship!) over Cap/Soquel, 8-7!!
CONGRATULATIONS, Nationals, District 39 Champions!
Starting June 25th and going to July 10th, All-Star games will begin (for us, that means the 9/10, 10/11 and 11/12 year old All-Star teams. More details will be posted soon!
Congratulations to all players moving in post-season play to be the face of SLVLL across the county!
SLV Majors WIN District 39 Tournament of Champions!
Playing a total of five games in the 17-game Majors Tournament of Champions, the SLVLL Majors Nationals won four of five games, of course the MOST important one being the last one, for the District 39 Championship! They beat Cap/Soquel with a score of 8-7.

Some tournament rationale and apology to SLE parents:
The Tournament at AA level is for fun only. There is no advancement at the AA level to a district championship.
Our tournaments at AAA and Majors serve to determine a season champion and entry into District 39's Tournament of Champions (TOC) that begins on June 12. This is the fifth year that SLVLL has used a tournament method to determine our TOC representative in AAA and Majors.
The Science Camp Issue: Science Camp officials have traditionally been very accommodating to SLVLL as far as releasing players to play on those game nights. We will have 8 teams (AAA and Majors) over two nights needing release of players and the logistics of that effect. SLVLL understands that parents have paid money for this camp experience and most of us have had to (in the past) remove our own kids and do the whole interruption of their experience. We apologize to SLE 5th grade parents for this hassle and will look in the future to try to better configure school commitments or our tournament process. Thank you for understanding.

2011 All-Star Updates
All Star Post Season Ends for SLV...
11/12’s: lose 11-10 on a walk-off base hit by Santa Cruz American. Yes, Tanner hit another “donkey” to lead off the game, his 7th Home Run in four games. Gentry “popped the chain” for his 11th of the year as well, but it wasn’t quite enough. The whole valley should be proud of the efforts of this year’s 11/12’s!
9/10’s: lose to Scotts Valley 10-3. But that’s the second year in a row for this age group to move beyond pool play. Wait til next year!
10/11’s Lose to SCA 10-0. Their season is over, but what a great run by a bunch of loose, fun, and enthusiastic boys! Way to go, guys!
8/9’s Fall to Aptos, 19-9. Their run is over, but the Valley is proud of their incredible post season and late (and extra) inning heroics!

Champions Capitola/Soquel Start the Summer For SLV 11-Yr Olds
The SLV 11-yr olds packed up their bats as the last run crossed the plate to end the season for SLV. Capitola/Soquel beat SLV 7-3 on Monday night, and claimed the 2007 District 39 Championship. In a great effort by both sides, SLV lost the game but won the hearts of their fans. All of the SLV teams played with class and dignity, and all received fantastic support from the SLV community, with many fans appearing at games with passion and pride. At the final game Monday night the fans without family on the team nearly outnumbered those that did. We all salute the players, coaches, managers and team parents!

First Half Standings & TOC (Tournament of Champions) Information
2008 MAJORS 1st Half Standings
2008 MINORS 1st Half Standings
2008 AA 1st Half Standings
The current standings now reflect the second half of the season, and do not include results from the first half.
In our District 39, two post-season Tournament of Champions (TOC) are held in which the Majors and Minors(AAA) division leaders, for each league in the district, meet to determine a District Champion. The first place team in the second half of the season will meet the first place team in the first half of the season in a single playoff game to determine the 2008 SLVLL Division Champion. This game is to be scheduled. Should the same team finish both halves in 1st place, that team will proudly represent SLV in the District 39 TOC's. There is no AA TOC, but if necessary a AA championship game will be played at 5:30pm on June 13th.
