Volunteer Coaches Needed
By Todd Palmatier
It’s time to think spring. Spring sports signup sheets are posted in the high school gymnasium.
ECLV Little League baseball and softball signups will begin right after winter break. Here are the breakdowns:
T-Ball: boys and girls, age 4-6
Coach Pitch League: boys and girls, ages 6-8
Softball: girls, ages 9-12 (8 year olds based on skill level)
Minor League Baseball: boys and girls, ages 9-10 (8 year olds based on skill level)
Major League Baseball: boys and girls, ages 11-12 (10 year olds based on skill level)
The cost for Little League this year is $30 for the first child, $25 for second child, and $70 maximum for a family. Also, families are encouraged to participate in fundraiser or pay a $30 opt-out fee for each child, $50 for a family.
ECLV will also be holding signups for the following:
Jr. League Baseball/Expressway Baseball: boys, ages 13-14
Sr. League Baseball/Expressway Baseball: boys, ages 15-16
Jr. League Softball/Expressway Softball: girls, ages 13-14
The cost for these leagues is $60 total plus fundraiser. This cost is separate from Little League cost and is per child.
These leagues are travel leagues and will be played on the high school ball diamonds.
In other exciting news, ECLV has been invited to 12-U and 13-U tournaments in Erie, Pa., Lakewood, N.Y. and West Seneca, N.Y.
