NEW DISTRICT ADMINISTRATOR

Congratulations to Brian Cripps for being elected District 4's second District Administrator. After growing up playing Little League in the Las Vegas Valley, Brian started volunteering for local Leagues in 2003 when he coached his son's tee-ball team. After managing and coaching for 4 years, he began serving on the Western Little League Board of Directors as President, Vice President and Umpire in Chief. In 2013 Brian joined the District 4 Staff as a Assistant District Administrator for Mike Aker. Brian has attended many Little League training sessions including the 2017 Little League Congress, several regional roundtables and many rules clinics. 

Congratulations Brian, you'll do amazing. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


CORONAVIRUS UPDATES

On June 10, 2020 Governor Sisolak opened up youth sports to practice only. Below are links to the State's press release and specific requirements for baseball and softball. However, our leagues have suspended their game seasons until this fall. Please check with your local league for specifics on how they are proceeding with their program. 

Youth Sports Practice Only Opening - Press Release

Baseball and Softball Practice Only - Requirements

 

Little League has cancelled all World Series and Regional tournaments. Other Districts in Nevada have also either suspended or cancelled their seasons. Therefore, the State tournament has also been cancelled.

As part of the resumed season this fall, the District will conduct all-star tournaments in all divisions similar to the traditional spring tournaments. The tournaments will be held after the regular season and conclude prior to Thanksgiving.

 

As information continues to become available regarding the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and the reopening of Nevada, we wanted to provide our leagues with additional guidance on the implementation of the Little League® program.

Little League International operates more than 6,500 programs in more than 84 countries, and therefore, has recommend that our leagues exercise an abundance of caution. Little League has developed extensive information on how to resume play once it is safe to do so. Please visit the links below to access this information.
