Welcome to South County Little League


Welcome to South County Little League (SCLL).  We are pleased to be one of the most comprehensive and growing baseball programs in Northern Virginia with programs for boys and girls age 4-16. 

SCLL’s mission continues to be:

“Through baseball South County Little League strives for the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage, and respect for authority so that our players are stronger and happier children and will grow to be good, decent, healthy, and trustworthy citizens.”

South County Little League is successful only because of the thousands of volunteers who support our players.  If you think you can find some time to help out “your little league” please contact any board member.

I look forward to working with you to continue the efforts to make SCLL a league parents can be proud of having their kids participate in.

Amy Greenwood-Field, President

South County Little League

SCLL Volunteer Opportunities and Tracking

 

SCLL Families,

 

SCLL requires hundreds of parent volunteer hours to run effectively. As you’re aware, this

spring you were required to provide a Volunteer Bond check to SCLL in the amount of $150 for

new families and $100 for returning families. The Volunteer Bond is designed to encourage SCLL

families to fill necessary volunteer roles that improve the safety, fun, and success of our league.

Each family is required to provide six (6) hours of volunteer work over the course of the spring

season in order to fulfill their Volunteer Bond commitment.

 

This spring we’ve put new tools in place to provide greater awareness and tracking of SCLL

volunteer opportunities, including:

 Volunteer FAQs

 SCLL Concession and Umpire Sign-up – used to proactively sign up for Concession Stand

and Umpire shifts throughout the season. Because the Concession Stand duties require

a minimal amount of training, we’ve setup 2-hour shifts throughout the season. This is a

great way to knock out 1/3 of your 6-hour commitment in one shift. Also, while we’d

prefer to have volunteers sign up in advance of games, if we have Concession vacancies

that we need to fill, we will revert back to SCLL home teams each providing one

volunteer. So, please volunteer and don’t be volun-told!

 SCLL Volunteer Log – used to retroactively log all volunteer activities except for

Concessions and Umpiring. Simply open the log on your computer or mobile device, fill

out the form, and click Continue. Team Managers and Team Parents will be required to

enter volunteer hours for their team and verify them in coordination with the SCLL

Volunteer Coordinator.

 

All volunteer entries – including Concession and Umpire Sign-ups and Volunteer Log entries –

are due no later than June 17. Families that fail to meet their minimum 6-hours of volunteer

work will be notified prior to their checks being deposited on June 30. Also, as a reminder

from the Volunteer Bond that you signed pre-season, if you do not show up to complete the

volunteer assignment you’ve signed up for, you will automatically forfeit your bond unless

you’ve made every effort to find a replacement for your shift and notified the league volunteer

coordinator at least 24 hours in advance of the scheduled shift.

 

If you have any questions, please contact the SCLL Volunteer Coordinator at

craig.baxter@scllva.org.

Thank you!

Concussion Training
Concussion training,
 
SCLL requires all board members, coaches, managers, umpires and team parents to pass a concussion education program annually prior to the first practice. In addition, parents are strongly encouraged to complete the course. By taking this free, online course and using what you have learned, you will be well positioned to improve the League’s concussion culture. Your actions will support our mission for a safe environment for young athletes so that they can stay healthy, active, and thrive - both on and off the playing field. Once you complete the training and quiz, you can print out a certificate, and submit it to your commissioner to show SCLL you are ready for the season. To access the test and useful information please use the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) below: https://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/training/index.html 
 What Will I Learn in This Training?
This course will help you:
  • Understand a concussion and the potential consequences of this injury,
  • Recognize concussion signs and symptoms and how to respond,
  • Learn about steps for returning to activity (play and school) after a concussion, and
  • Focus on prevention and preparedness to help keep athletes safe season-to-season.

New Little League Bat Standard

 


New Little League Bat Standard coming in 2018!

 

Effective January 1, 2018, Little League International has adopted a new bat policy that will affect every bat currently used at SCLL. With the new bat standard, all currently used, Little League-approved baseball bats will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity starting on January 1, 2018

 

The new bat material will change to a wood-like standard and should be out to market by September 2017.  For more information, please head to Little League's FAQ page found here:

 

USA Baseball Bat Standard: Frequently Asked Questions

What this means for SCLL is that, while current Little League-approved bats can be used during the 2017 Little League regular season and throughout tournament play, they will no longer be approved for use starting in 2018.  Please keep these upcoming bat standard changes in mind as you look to purchase new bats for the 2017 season and as, no doubt, bats begin to go on sale as word of the changes makes its way to retailers.  Any bat in your possession now and any currently on the shelves will no longer be Little League approved as of January 1, 2018.
