The LLL Board of Directors, in response to registration numbers, and feedback from our families, has approved a re-structuring of our league Divisions to address the following issues:
The League has seen a declining enrollment as a product of the times of declining elementary school enrollment and the economy
We have heard feedback that children with summer birthdays (the age eligible April 30th date) who are not allowed to play with their classmates has been a negative experience to many children
The talent level beginning at the 4th grade level becomes differentiating and should be addressed
The 4th Grade thru 6th Grade levels should be better consolidated to create more teams with better equity across the teams to provide more ability for equal playing time and more opportunities for all players
To address these concepts in a holistic approach, the Board has committed to:
Keeping our registration fees the same as last year, which continues to be the best value of any local sports program
Appreciate the value of allowing our children to play with their friends in their grade
Appreciate the concerns of the summer birthday children who are more comfortable or could have better success playing at the league age of April 30 cutoff
Providing opportunities for advanced players to play at a more advanced level
Providing a structure that affords more teams in each Division to allow an overall better experience for all players
