Welcome to South County Little League

Welcome to SCLL Registration


Welcome to the SCLL Spring 2020 Registration.

The South County Little League is excited about another baseball season.  The league continues to grow and expand.  Beyond our traditional offering of baseball from T-ball to Majors (11-12 year olds), our Girls Softball program is now two years old and continues to attract recreational softball players in the area wishing to learn the game while having a lot of fun.  A 2nd field has been modified to be softball compliant. The league is extending its offering of recreational baseball to boys and girls 13 and older with both Jr (13 to 14) and Sr (14 to 16) offerings.    Finally, the league continues to expand its training offering through the purchase of equipment and the 2019 installation of our new pitching and catching training area.  

If you need help moving through the online registration process, please refer to the HELP page which will provide you instruction whether your are new to SCLL or if you have a returning player.

Some quick notes before starting:

1.  Returning players should use their existing account. *DO NOT create a new account when registering on-line. 

2.  New Player Registration: Parents will need to create a new account before registering.  Once the parent(s) have created the account, they will add their players.   Available programs are determined by Age and Gender (baseball is co-ed / softball is girls only) .   The registration guide will help you determine which option is the best for your family. 

3.  For baseball players league-age 7 and older, the division will be determined through a skills assessment.    The player will be moved to the appropriate division following the assessment and subsequent DRAFT.

4.  Registration is a 2 Step Process.    After players are registered on-line, parents will be required to attend one of two in person sessions to provide a volunteer bond and complete registration.

5.  Families can pay via check at the walk-in or by credit card.   Note, for families using a credit card, the league will charge an additional fee to cover the cost of the credit card processing fee.   Families will be asked to provide a $150 refundable volunteer bond at the walk-in registration.  The bond must be in the form of a check.   Upon completion of the season volunteer commitment,  the check will be returned to the family or destroyed.   Families desiring to have their check returned MUST provide a self-addressed stamped envelope during the walk-in registration.

6.  Families are welcome to register at the walk-in registration if they need help.


7.   Registration Deadlines will be strictly observed to enable proper placement of players on teams, timely uniform delivery, compliance with sponsorship commitments, and preparation of team banners.  SCLL cannot guarantee spots, player uniforms, or inclusion of a player's name on a team banner if enrollment is requested after the deadlines.

2020 Assessment Process (AA, AAA and Major Division)

We will be conducting player Skills Assessments at Competitive Edge Athletic Performance Center on February 8, 2020. The skills assessments provide a means for the league to evenly distribute skill levels across teams so that teams are equally competitive.  Following the assessments, managers will meet to conduct a selection draft with players being notified the first week in March for division / team assignments.

Competitive Edge Athletic Performance Center is located at :

14849 Persistence Drive
Woodbridge, VA 22191

All players between League-Age 8 and 12 years old are required to attend the skills assessment on February 8th. League-Age 7-year-old players who desire to be considered for the AA division (Player pitch) should also attend the session. 

The schedule for each age group will be posted below


POST SCHEDULE FOR ASSESSMENTS

 

We strongly encourage players to attend the scheduled session aligned with their age. This ensures the proper managers get to view the player. Please note that players who are not able to attend either session will be still be eligible to play. However, those players will be randomly assigned to teams in order to ensure integrity of the draft selection process.

Players should bring a glove. Players are welcome to bring their own bat / helmet if they have one, otherwise, one will be provided. Tennis shoes only - No cleats please!  Players with catcher’s gear are welcome to bring their gear if they desire to be assessed as a catcher, however gear will be available.

The process will work as follows:

1.                  Each player will check in at front desk. They will receive a sticker with their player number, and age. If the player has not yet paid their registration and / or volunteer bond (please bring check) the family will be asked to complete the registration at the time of check in. 

2.          Players will make 5 short throws to a coach or teen player. Players will make 5 more longer throws to a coach while fielding ground balls.

3.         Players will hit 5 to 7 “soft toss” balls from a coach.

4.          Those players who identified as pitchers and catchers will be brought back to pitch / catch in the cage.

You can expect the process to take about an hour, but that is dependent upon the number of players moving through the system. Parents are asked to help their players with their gear and then remain along the sides of the facility in order for us to move players through the process as efficiently as possible.

Please email questions or issues to the player agent at [email protected]

We are excited about this next step towards baseball in the spring and looking forward to seeing everybody!

Baseball Divisions

CO-ED TEE BALL (AGES 4-6)

SCLL T-Ball Division offers a fun, instructional league for players who are either new to the sport or still refining the basic skills. Tee Ball is a non-competitive program focused on fun, fitness, and fundamentals where players ages 4–6 are first introduced to the basics of baseball . SCLL strives to provide a T-Ball experience focused on teaching the fundamentals of the game in a fun environment while incorporating a high level of physical activity.

General Information

▪ All games are on Saturdays at Lower Potomac Park

▪ One team practice per week on a weekday evening

▪ Team T-shirt and a hat is provided. Parents provide glove, baseball pants, and cleats. Some parents may also choose to purchase a bat for their child to use, however the league will provide a few bats to each team.

"A"  - BASEBALL - (Ages 6-7-8)

This level of play fosters continued skills development and a better understanding of the rules and nuances of the game. Either coaches or a pitching machine will provide pitching to "A" players. The focus remains on the fun of playing the sport while more coaching attention is given to fielding, making plays, accurate throwing, proper hitting technique and preparing the player for player-pitch at the "AA" level.

*Little League 6 year olds are welcome to play A Baseball if they have played one year of T-Ball and pass a safety evaluation.

"AA" - BASEBALL (Ages 7-8-9)

The "AA" Division is a level of baseball where a higher level of game understanding and ability is taught. Competition as it relates to winning and losing is introduced at this level. Winning and losing remain secondary to the essential goal of teaching each player to embrace success or failure with grace and to learn from both. Primary goals are to give players as much experience and playing time as possible and encouragement of ongoing development for all players in all phases of the game. This important developmental division provides a relatively even but not necessarily equal distribution of playing time among players. "AA" includes player pitch, scoring and umpiring. By the end of the season players are expected to have refined their skills so they may successfully participate at the "AAA" level the following year. 

*League Age 9 year olds who attend Evaluations are eligible to play in the AAA division and may be drafted to a AAA team . If you would like your 9 year old to be considered eligible for a AAA team, please contact our Players Agent. 


"AAA" - BASEBALL (Ages 9-10-11) 

This division of Little League promotes a higher level of competition than "AA" and emphasizes more of the standard rules of Little League baseball. The focus in "AAA" remains on education, development and teamwork while encouraging a deeper understanding of the game and advancing skill development in order to prepare players for successful participation at the Majors level.

*League Age 10 and 11 year olds who attend Evaluations are eligible to play in the Majors division and may be drafted to a Majors team . If you would like your 10 or 11 year old to be considered eligible for a Majors team, please contact our Players Agent. 


MAJORS - BASEBALL(Ages 10-11-12)

This division promotes competition to a higher degree as compared to the Minor League. Within this more competitive environment, the emphasis remains on improving baseball skills, building individual self-esteem, promoting team camaraderie and emphasizing fair play. The division is designed to be both the satisfying culmination of some players' Little League careers and to prepare other players for higher levels of play including advancement in Little League Tournament play and readiness to move up to play on the full 90 foot diamond.
