Opening day Festivities for baseball and softball will be on Saturday April 10th, 2021 with games starting on Sunday April 11th. Baseball and softball seasons will end by the middle of June. Those that play on the All Star Tournament team will begin practicing in mid June with the District Tournament starting the last week in June. To be eligible to try out, the player must play in 60% of the in house games.
Players who will be participating in the Intermediate (11-12) Baseball Division or the Major (11-12) Softball Division will be required to attend a skills evaluation that will take place on February 20th and February 27th at a time yet to be determined.
Each team will play 15-16 regular season games (weather permitting) plus a playoff tournament to be held at the end of the season. For lower divisions, the tournament is a blind draw for playoff seeding in the tournament. For higher divisions, seeding is based on win/loss record. Coach Pitch (Co-Ed) do not have tournaments.
For Junior and Senior Divisions for both baseball and softball, if we don't get enough players for at least 4 teams, some local travel may be required as we would participate with another local Little League in possibly Naperville and Joliet.
All divisions are available for registration.
There is also a multiple registration discount.
There is a family activity fee of $75.00. If you manage or coach that fee is refunded at the end of the season. There will be other opportunities through out the season to volunteer and earn part or all of the activity fee back as a refund. A minimum of 6 volunteer hours must be worked to receive the fee back.
When registering, the $75 activity fee will be included in your final registration price. If registering more than one player, you will see a $95 credit which reflects your $20 sibling discount plus $75 refund on activity fee for 2nd child as the activity fee is only charged once per family.
