* If weather affects outdoor sessions, we will send an email at least 90 minutes prior to the start time.  The outdoors sessions will be changed as follows:

  • Tuesday’s hitting group that was supposed to be outdoors will now be indoors at 6:45-8:15pm.
  • Thursday’s Infield/Outfield will move indoors at 6:45 – 8:15 pm.
  • Saturday’s situational scrimmages will be cancelled.
  • Note: If practices are moved inside, we ask that your player only attend 1 session due to space constraints in the facility.

**For Tuesday night Hitting sessions, your player will be assigned a group (by 9/11) and we will email your assignment.  Then each week your player and their group will rotate from Indoor hitting to Outdoor hitting sessions.

Little League is changing their standard for approved bats starting in the spring 2018.  The LCYBL is adopting these new rules for 12U and younger age groups.

Any bat that doesn't meet the requirement, cannot be used at practice or games.   

Before purchasing a new bat next year, we recommend reading more about it at the link below and reviewing the approved bat list.
