Registration Now Open for Smithfield Little League Baseball!Updated Saturday January 14, 2017 by SLL.
SMITHFIELD, R.I. – January 14, 2017 – Smithfield Little League today announced that it is accepting registrations for the 2017 Spring season and invites all Smithfield children aged 5 to 16 to register for an exciting season of baseball. Registration will close on Sunday, February 19.
For 66 years SLL has provided Smithfield youth with the opportunity to build Character, develop Courage and discover the meaning of Loyalty through the game of baseball. Whether a child has played on All-Star teams or never picked up a baseball, SLL coaches work with players to ensure a fun and memorable baseball experience.
SLL volunteers work hard to provide the best experience possible for players and sponsors a number of programs for all ages and skill levels, including ‘Blast Ball’, A, AA, AAA, Majors, Junior, and Senior. Fee waivers are available for eligible families as SLL believes that every child, regardless of their family’s financial means, should have an opportunity to play baseball.
SLL is proud to again offer the Challenger Division which, according to Little League Baseball, was established in 1989 as a separate division to enable boys and girls with physical and mental challenges, ages 4-18, or up to age 22, to enjoy the game of baseball. Individuals who do not live in Smithfield are welcome to register for the Smithfield team if their town Little League does not offer a Challenger Division. There is no registration fee for the Challenger Division; registrations are covered by generous donations. Smithfield Little League is among more than 900 Challenger Divisions worldwide with more than 30,000 participants.
To register for all divisions, please log onto http://smithfieldlittleleague.sportssignup.com/site.
The League also seeks volunteers and coaches for the 2017 season. To volunteer or coach, interested individuals should register online and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. To ensure the safety of all players, all volunteers must submit to a National background check.
