WLL Fall Baseball Evaluations for 2019 Spring Season

Fall Evaluations

Baseball evaluations/tryouts for the 2019 Spring season will be held on Sunday October 28, 2018 @ Roseland Park, beginning at 3:30pm.  Please see below for your player's specific time.  Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled time to register.  Players should attend the session for the division in which they wish to be evaluated for (i.e. players that attend the Minor Division evaluation will not be considered for the Major Division).  Players should wear cleats and bring their gloves, bats and batting helmets.  League bats and batting helmets will also be available for use if needed.

Who needs to attend?

  • any league age 7 year olds who want to be considered for Minors

  • any league age 8 year olds who want to be considered for Minors

  • any league age 9 year olds new to WLL, new to Minors or who want to be considered for Majors

  • any league age 10 year olds new to WLL or who want to be considered for Majors

  • any league age 11 year olds new to WLL or who want to be considered for Majors

  • any league age 12 year olds new to WLL or new to Majors

**League age and all other references to player's age refers to the players' little league age for the 2019 Spring Season.  Please see the Little League Age determination chart to determine your player's league age. 

In general, any player looking to play in a new division for the 2019 Spring season should attend this evaluation/tryout.  Per WLL Bylaws, most players will not be allowed to move up a division if they do not attend either the Fall evaluation in October 2018 or the Spring evaluation, which will be held in March 2019.  For example, if your son, who will be league age 10 for the 2019 Spring season, played in the Minor League Baseball division during the 2018 Spring season but wishes to be considered for move up to the Major League division, he must attend at least one WLL evaluation/tryout.

Schedule for Baseball Evaluations:

 

Sun 10/28/18 3:30pm-4:30pm Minor Baseball Evaluations: 7, 8 & 9* yr olds
Sun 10/28/18 4:30pm-5:30pm Major Baseball Evaluations: 9*, 10, 11 & 12 yr olds

 

*9 year olds should attend the evaluation for the division they wish to be considered for.  In order for 9 year olds to be considered for the Majors division, they must have played in the Minors division for at least one season.

Any returning player that wishes to play in the same division as the 2018 Spring season is not required to attend tryouts.  The division the player participated in during the 2018 Fall season is irrelevant for 2019 Spring season placement purposes.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Final player placement will be determined by the WLL Board of Directors based upon the following: (1) WLL Safety Evaluations, (2) Little League Softball and Baseball Age Determination Charts, (3) WLL bylaws for Player Tryouts and Evaluation Scores (Rule 7) and (4) WLL bylaws for Age Guidelines and Division/Team Roster Selection (Rule 8).  WLL bylaws can be found under the "WLL Documents" tab on this website.  Any questions can be directed to Mike Sampson at woodstockllpresident@yahoo.com.

WLL Board Members and Volunteers Needed

Dear WLL Friends and Parents,

Woodstock Little League is in desperate need of new Board Members, Coaches and Volunteers for the 2019 season.  September 30, 2018 marks the end of the current Little League season, and it will also mark the end of tenure for some of our current Board Members that have provided invaluable service to Woodstock Little League.

Please consider volunteering your time, and helping to sustain and improve Woodstock Little League.  Below, please find a description of the various positions and roles on the WLL Board.  Please take the time to review this information for positions/roles that you feel you could fulfill on behalf of our league and our children.  Not sure you want to assume a postion?  In addition to these positions, WLL welcomes General Board Members as well.

WLL is also always in need of coaches and volunteers.  Our fields are maintained 100% by volunteers, including mowing and field preparation and maintenance.  If you are unsure of volunteering for our Board, we are hopeful that you will volunteer in some other capacity.

Woodstock Little League's Annual Meeting will be held on Thursday, October 11, 2018 at 7pm at South Woodstock Baptist Church.  Please consider attending this meeting and finding out more.  Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Board of Directors Roles

The local league Board of Directors, elected from and by the adult members of the league, is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the league within the rules, regulations and policies of Little League. This board does not have the authority to alter, suspend or change any of the rules, regulations or policies of Little League.

Annually, the regular membership of each Little League is required to meet and elect the board of directors. Following the election, the board of directors meets to elect its officers from within the newly elected board. The officers required are: president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, player agent, and safety officer and coaching coordinator (Information officer recommended but not required).

President - Apart from all other considerations, sound leadership, couched in knowledge, experience and common sense, is the greatest requirement and most exemplary qualification of the man or woman selected as president of a Little League.

While efficient organizational and administrative abilities are desirable credentials, the search for good leadership must transcend all other attributes in the adult who gives direction to the Little League movement in the local community. Dedication to the goals and purpose of Little League is inherent in the volunteer aspect of those who serve, but not everyone who serves is gifted with the quality of leadership. Presidents must reflect these qualities if they are to be of benefit to children.

The president has many responsibilities in the administration of the league. Each President is elected by, and is accountable to, the local league board of directors. Duties of a president are described within the limits of the rules and regulations, and within the local league constitution, giving each president the ability to oversee the affairs of all elements of the league.

As the chief administrator, the president selects and appoints managers, coaches, umpires and committees. As such, no person becomes a manager, coach, umpire or committee member without the approval of the president. However, all appointments are subject to final approval by the local league's board of directors.

Importantly, the president is the officer with whom Little League International maintains contact. The president also represents the league in the District organization.

The president should be the most informed officer of the league. Each president must know the regulations under which Little League operates and in authorizing the annual application for charter, binds all members of the league to faithfully observe the regulations. Little League Baseball International Headquarters reserves the right to require a league to remove any officer who does not carry out the terms of charter application. Serious violation can result in loss of the league's charter by action of the Charter Committee in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

Beyond the requirements of league administration, the president should personify the best public image in reflection to the community at large. Each president should take an active role in gaining support and winning friends for the league program.

The president presides at league meetings, and assumes full responsibility for the operation of the local league. The president receives all mail, supplies and other communications from the Little League Headquarters. A president may manage, coach or umpire, provided he/she does not serve on the protest committee, nor serve as tournament team manager or coach.

Vice President - The vice president presides in the absence of the president, works with other officers and committee members, is ex-officio member of all committees, and carries out such duties and assignments as may be delegated by the president. Separate vice presidents may also be selected to oversee individual divisions within the league. If so, one vice president should be selected as the one to preside in the absence of the president. A vice president may manage, coach or umpire, provided they do not serve on the protest committee.

Secretary - The secretary maintains a register of members and directors, records the minutes of meetings, is responsible for sending out notice of meetings, issues membership cards and maintains a record of league's activities.

Treasurer - The treasurer signs checks co-signed by another officer or director (or as directed by the local league's constitution), dispenses league funds as approved by the board of directors, reports on the status of league funds, keeps local league books and financial records, prepares budgets, and assumes the responsibility for all local league finances.

Player Agent - The player agent conducts annual tryouts, is in charge of player selection, assists the president in checking birth records and eligibility of players and generally supervises and coordinates the transfer of players to or from the Minor Leagues according to provisions of the regulations of Little League Baseball. Separate player agents may also be selected to oversee individual divisions within the league. The player agent must not manage, coach or umpire in the division over which he/she has authority, unless the local league has received explicit written permission to allow this from Little League International.

Safety Officer - The safety officer coordinates all safety activities including supervision of ASAP (A Safety Awareness Program), ensures safety in player training, ensures safe playing conditions, coordinates reporting and prevention of injuries, solicits suggestions for making conditions safer, and reports suggestions to Little League International through the ASAP system.

Information Officer - The information officer manages the league's official home page on active.com, manages the online registration process and ensures that league rosters are maintained on the site, assigns administrative rights to league volunteers and teams, ensures that league news and scores are updated on a regular basis, collects, posts and distributes important information on League activities including direct dissemination of fund-raising and sponsor activities to Little League International, district, public, league members and media, serves as primary contact person for Little League and active.com regarding optimizing use of the Internet for league administration and for distributing information to league members and to Little League International, and displays enthusiasm for using the Internet for league administration, for sharing information and for creating a more enjoyable and efficient Little League experience.

Coaching Coordinator - Represents coaches/managers in league; presents a coach/manager training budget to the board; gains the support and funds necessary to implement a league-wide training program; orders and distributes training materials to players, coaches and managers; coordinates mini-clinics as necessary; helps implement www.LittleLeagueCoach.org as the manager-coach education program for the league.

Concession Manager -

  • Maintains the operation of concession facilities
  • Organizes the purchase of concession products
  • Responsible for the management of the concession sales at league events
  • Schedules volunteers to work the concession booth during league events
  • Collects and reviews concession related offers including coupons, discounts and bulk-purchasing opportunities
  • Organizes, tallies and keeps records of concession sales and purchases

Sponsorship/Fundraising Manager -

  • Solicits and secures local sponsorships to support league operations
  • Collects and reviews sponsorship and fundraising opportunities
  • Organizes and implements approved league fundraising activities
  • Coordinates participation in fundraising activities
  • Maintains records of monies secured through sponsorship and fundraising initiatives
