Can I pick a coach or team for my child?

Nope! Little League rules indicate your child is assigned to a team based on a drafting method. If you have a 9-year-old, he or she could end up in any of the Two divisions. It's based on your child's ability, not the parent's desire. Only on rare occasions will the board permit a "pre-draft" decision for early placement. If you really want your child on a specific team, sign up as a head coach/manager and volunteer. That's the only way.

When will I know what team my child was assigned?

After the tryouts, the coaches for Rookie, Minor, and Major divisions will meet to draft the players. This will occur Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday FOLLOWING the draft. On Friday the 10th of February, the board will meet and assign the Coach Pitch/T-Ball players. You should hear from your assigned coach no later than March 3rd.

When and where are the practices?

Practices are determined by the coach, not the league. You can ask the STVLL, but we will point you back to this section for the answer. Your coach

When and where are the games?

Games are scheduled AFTER the draft is completed. Game days are typically Rookie on Thursday night, Majors on Wednesday night, Minors on Tuesday night, and everyone on Saturday. Coach Pitch and T-Ball games are determined by the number of registrations and takes longer to post on the site. Games are typically played at Copper Basin, but Interleague games will be played at different facilities..

What time are the games?

Games typically start at 5:30pm during the week and as early as 8am on Saturday. Interleague games will likely start later as most of the facilities we play at have lights.
