All fees and dues should be made by check payable to: “Sitka Little League,” with the following notes (appropriate to the payment) in the memo field: “SBC Dues,” “SBC Punch Card,” or “Fall Ball.” Fees for 5 week “Fall Ball,” sessions will be advertised and established by the coach running the program, David Reynolds or Matt Way.
Call or text 907-738-1392 to arrange purchase of the membership dues.
How do the Punch cards work?
Punch cards will be sold to members in 10 or 20 session cards. The cards will be kept in a file box inside the batting cage. Upon arrival, each member will be required to retrieve their card from the file and present it to the supervising coach to have it punched or checked for waivers. Players do not need to attend all scheduled practice times, but anytime they do attend, they are to retrieve their card and have the instructor mark off one session.
Call or text 907-738-1392 to arrange purchase of the punch cards.
What Little league ages / sports can participate?
In previous years, we limited participation to those athletes who played in the most recent season of Little League baseball (15u) or softball. We also encouraged highschool players to participate. But starting this year, we will be working with highschool age kids. Any youth player or aspiring player ages 13-18 are welcome to join and participate in our workouts. For the little league players, you will need to renew your registration with little league before the end of the year to maintain insurance coverage through Little League International. So be sure to contact the SLL president and visit the SLL website to early register to avoid any lapse in coverage.
High School Age Kids / Non Little League Participants
For all highschool age members, or kids who did not participate in this year’s little league season, you will not have any insurance coverage for accidents or injuries that occur during our activities. So it is important you understand this and that you as parents are responsible for providing insurance coverage for your children in this age bracket, as we do not presently have coverage to offer (though it is a goal and aspiration).
Who are the Coaches?
For the 2019 season, Coach Brandon will focus on the “Big Diamond” kids: ages 13-18, and Coach Rich Ross, Coach Rich McAlpin, will work with the SLL Majors kids (ages 10-12), and Coach Tony Conforti will be working with the minors kids (ages 8-10). All parents and coaches working with our youth members must pass the background check required by Little League baseball.
