2018 Majors Tryout Signup Link
Majors Tryouts are on Saturday December 9th and Saturday December 16th at Highlands North.
Every kid that plays Majors in 2018 MUST attend ONE tryout session on either date.
We are encouraging kids to attend both tryout sessions to give coaches a longer look at each kid and also some kids tryout better the second time...however only ONE session is REQUIRED.
If you choose to attend two sessions, you must attend one session on both Saturday's (we are not allowing kids to tryout twice on the same day).
You CAN use Mako bats and other 2017 Little League approved bats for the Majors tryout as the new bat standard does not take effect in Little League until 2018. You can also use the 2018 bats as well.
The session times for both Saturdays are as follows...
Session 1 - 9:00 am. - 10:00 a.m.
Sesssion 2 - 10:15 a.m. - 11:15 a.m.
Session 3 - 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Session 4 - 12:45 p.m. - 1:45 p.m.
Session 5 - 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Please note that as of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard will be implemented. Little League-approved baseball bats that are approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity starting on January 1, 2018. For more information on the USABat standard and a complete list of bats approved through the USABat Standard, visit usabat.com.
Please click on the two underlined links above and the one link below to get more detailed informaton on the 2018 Little League Bat Standard, why it changed, and what bats will be allowed in 2018.
* In order to maintain the integrity of youth baseball, the USA Bat Standard will create wood-like performance in youth bats while allowing younger players to use lightweight bats that could not be acheived with actual wood bats.
* This change will lead to less home runs and because of the bigger barrel, more balls in play. It will also create more safety for pitchers as the exit velocity of balls hit will not be as high.
* The new Bat Standard might seem complicated, but the key thing to remember is this...if a bat has the USA Baseball Stamp on it (pictured below), it is fine to use for the 2018 Little League Season.
If a bat has either of these two USA Baseball Stamps on it, it is approved for use for the 2018 Little League Season
It shall not be more than 33 inches in length; nor more than 2⅝ inches in diameter, and if wood, not less than fifteen-sixteenths (15/16) inches in diameter (7/8 inch for bats less than 30") at its smallest part. Wood bats taped or fitted with a sleeve may not exceed sixteen (16) inches from the small end.
NOTE: Solid one-piece wood barrel bats do not require a USA Baseball logo.
21. How will wooden bats for Little League play be effected by the new USA Baseball bat standard?-
A: Solid, one-piece wood bats that adhere to Little League’s regulations will be allowed for play with or without the USA Baseball mark. Multi-piece wood bats must have the USA Baseball mark to be approved for play. This includes two-piece wood bats, composite wood bats, laminated wood bats, bonded wood bats, bamboo bats, and any wood bat that could be defined as an ‘experimental’ design.
If you have questions on the differences between divisions and which division your child should participate in for the 2018 season, check out the 2018 SCLL Division Classification Guide below.
To find out your child's Baseball Age (which is used to determine which division he is eligible for), check out the 2018 Little League Age Chart.

SCLL Board Meetings Open to the Public
SCLL Board Meetings are open to the public.
They were always open to the public, but there are probably many that did not know that.
The SCLL Board Meeting takes place the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 7:30 p.m. at St. Charles School in the meeting room next to the basketball courts.
So if you ever find yourself totally bored with nothing else to do on a 2nd Tuesday night of the month, stop by an SCLL Board Meeting.
The SCLL Board meeting schedule will be updated on the calendar.
