We are excited to announce that registration for the 2021 Little League season has opened for all divisions (including a newly established Seniors division (age 15-16)! To help us get a sense as to the numbers, we are asking families to register and coaches to sign up to volunteer by January 15th. Every registrant will be put on a Waitlist so no payment will be required at this time.
We will be implementing the following phased approach:
*The health and safety of our Little League community is paramount, and we will rely on state and local government and health officials for guidance on hosting youth sports in the Spring. Once our safety plan for each Phase is approved by the City of San Carlos, we will communicate accordingly and post to our website. And, in the event you need a bit more encouragement to register, we also wanted to provide an update to the youth sports’ guidelines from the California Department of Public Health. It is very likely that we return to games (or Phase 2 as per our plan) in the spring. Baseball is classified as an “Outdoor moderate-contact sport.” Cities and sports organizations will be permitted to play games when the county in which the city and organization resides in reaches the RED tier, as long as the county is not under a regional stay-at-home order.
District 52, of which we are a part of, operates divisions for kids baseball age 13, 14, 15, and 16 who have completed Majors. In these divisions, teams from different leagues across the district play against each other. These divisions offer traditional rules baseball, including lead-offs, unlimited steals, pick-offs and balks. Players get to play what they watch on TV every night
If your player loves to play baseball, and wants to have fun playing with your friends and represent your city, these are great divisions.
We offer two unique divisions:
Juniors 54-80: For players who played in Majors in 2019 or 2020. This division features a mid-sized field (80’ bases, 54’ pitching, same as USSSA) which fits this age group. This size makes for a dynamic game, and is a great stepping stone to the full-sized field. Game schedule is similar to Majors: 2 games each week (one during the week, one on the weekend), with regular games against other surrounding little leagues. There will be a regular season tournament at the end, and then an all-star tournament for those selected. We utilize excellent fields such as Sea Cloud, Burton and El Camino Parks.
Seniors 60-90: For players who played Majors in 2017 or 2018 and for some all-star level 14’s who played in 2019, this division features play on a full-sized field (90’ bases, 60’ pitching). Games are primarily played on high school fields. In San Carlos, we will play at Flannagan at Burton. If SCLL does not have enough players to field a team, we will combine with neighboring leagues! Every athlete who signs up will have a home with us on a team! There will be a LOT of flexibility for this division.
What is great about these divisions is how much growth occurs. Since some of the all-star players will likely not return, players who didn't get to play certain positions in Majors are all pressed into service and have the opportunity to rise to the occasion. There is room for kids of all skill levels!
