It’s that time again! If you are planning to play Clark Little League baseball this spring, the registration and tryout window is closing. Children who will be 4 to 12yrs old on April 30th 2013 will need to register now for the upcoming season and children 10 to 12yrs old will need to attend a tryout to be eligible for the major league division. For more info please email ClarkLittleLeague@gmail.com. CLL will be drafting teams over the next few months.
CLL is coming off one of our best seasons to date in 2012. Following our opening day parade and ceremonies, our instructional division of 4 and 5yr. olds met every Friday evening throughout the spring for an hour+ of learning the basics and having fun.
Our Peewee division of 6 and 7yr olds played 15-20 games in the spring plus an extended season over the summer for those children who were interested. They basically played until they dropped and had fun at the same time.
Our 8yr old division, exclusive to 8 yr. olds played a 16 game schedule plus playoffs and a World Series.
Our Major and Minor leagues for kids 9 to 12yr old will further advance the baseball skills of our children culminating in two exciting World Series.
We had three age groups play in the District 10 final game with the 12 year olds winning a D10 title.
CLL will be planning clinics for kids and coaches over the winter. All kids 8 yrs. old and above will have the opportunity to play travel ball in the summer and fall for either the Tournament team or the NPGL. In 2012 CLL had 12 travel teams playing throughout June and July with 4 teams choosing to play fall ball.
It all begins with a parade and ends in a blow-out picnic at the Deutscher Club in Clark.
Get registered, before you know it spring will be here!
