Leagues Donating to the Coffey Fund
A huge THANK YOU to 4S Ranch, Rancho Bernardo,
Poway National, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe and Poway American
for their generous donations to the D31 John Coffey Award fund.
Little League is now using the Umpire Registry to track Volunteer Umpires and house their Little League Umpire career resumes. LL will also use the Registry to accept Post Season Tournament Umpire requests eliminating all of the paperwork as needed in years past.
D31 Clinics Another MONSTER Success
We set attendance records once again with over 100 attendees at our
Rules and Umpire Mechanics Clinics. Bring on the Little League Season!
