2022 Summer Ball - Softball

 
Ballard Little League Families:
 
It's time to register for Summer Ball!
 
Summer ball is a chance for your player to stay out on the diamond this summer, sharpening his/her skills and, most of all, having fun!
 
We coordinate summer ball with other leagues in north Seattle, usually encompassing Magnolia, Ballard, U-District, and other nearby neighborhoods. Plans are still being made, but the general outlines are:
 
   * Games start around July 11 and run for 5-6 weeks
   * Usually 1-2 games during the week. No practices or weekend games
   * Larger rosters so it's OK for players to miss some games for vacations, etc.

Softball
 
Softball is currently opening registration for one division. Whether the players are then divided into divisions or participate in inter-league play will be determined based on registration. But if your player signs up for softball, rest assured they will get the chance to play summer ball in some form!
 
Registration opens today and will remain open until June 30. Registration fee is $50.
 
Let me know if you have questions and register early!

2022 Summer Ball - Baseball

Summer League offers a great, low-key environment for players to polish their skills, try new position, push themselves beyond their comfort zone, and have fun doing so. This year we will be fielding two Baseball divisions: 8-9 (AAA), and 10-11 (Majors) and one softball team.

BLL is offering two baseball division and one softball division this summer as follows:
 
Baseball
   
     * AAA - this is for kids who are intending to play in AAA next year, which means they are now in AA or AAA (usually a little league age 9 or 10 currently)
 
   * Majors - this is for kids who intend to play Majors next year, which means they are currently in AAA or Majors (LL age 10 or 11 currently). If they are currently a LL age 12 they are not eligible but could do Intermediate or Juniors with another league.
 
For summer ball, we encourage kids to "play up" to the division they plan to be next year, as it's a chance to be with a mix of players and get used to a higher level of ball in a relaxed environment. Here is an excerpt from a chart I borrowed that will help guide your selection of division:
 
      Age         Spring Division                         Summer Division
        9                   AA                        AAA (if planning for AAA next year)
        10                AA                                     AAA
        10               AAA                                  AAA or Majors
        11               AAA                                  Majors
 12, 13, 14 Juniors
