LLbadgeRegister for the 2018 Scappoose Little League season now!

 

 

Scappoose Little League Registration is now open!

We are excited to announce that we are now accepting registrations for our Spring 2018 season.  We are also introducing our new online registration system and web portal.  This new system will be our primary website and communication tool for everything revolving around Scappoose Little league.  We will post league events, game schedules, sponsor information and any other useful information pertaining to Scappoose Little League through this site.  The new site allows each family to have a single sign in for multiple players instead of having multiple accounts for each player like we have had in the past.  Also, your information will carry over year to year making future registrations a quick and easy process.  

The first step is to follow the below link and register an account on the system.   You will find a "Register" button on the top right corner of the site.  Once you have registered, you can then start adding your participants.  Once a participant is added, the available programs (divisions) that your participant is eligible for will be available for signup.  You can also sign up to be a head coach (Manager) or an assistant coach from the volunteer section of the site. 

We were able to keep our registration fees the same as last season and we are again requiring a $20.00 donation instead of doing a fundraising campaign.  To help us get coaches selected, teams organized and uniforms ordered on time, we are implementing a late fee this season.  For Minor, Major and Junior Softball and Baseball, a $15.00 late fee will be charged for any registrations received after Feb 15, 2018.  For T-Ball, Farm Baseball and Farm Softball, the late fee starts after March 17th, 2018

One item of note for all Baseball players; Little League International has adopted the USA Baseball Bat Requirements Policy for all levels of play (Softball not included).  All baseball bats used in Little League games must be an approved USA stamped bat meeting the new requirements.  This means that the Majority of bats from previous seasons are no longer legal bats and will not be permitted to be used. For more information, you can find a link to the policy from the registration website linked below.

Thank you,

We have some big changes this year that we're excited to rollout for the boy's 6-8 year old age group. As we've seen players develop in their divisions and graduate to the next level, we've noticed the hardest transition to make is that from Pitching Machine to Minors. In the past, Pitching Machine has been setup exactly like Tee Ball, with the only exception being the use of a machine instead of a tee. In an effort to make the development at this level more meaningful, we will be employing a new set of rules and game flow that will more closely mimic that of the Minors level.

Examples of the changes include coach pitch for the first half of the season followed by coach & player pitch the second half, real batting counts, real positions, strikes, outs, and much more practice time. As such, Pitching Machine division has been renamed to Farm Baseball.

Because this is more advanced than it has been in the past, we strongly recommend this for players league age 6-8 only (Born between September 2008 and August 2011). League age 6 year olds should have played at least one year of Tee-ball.

** Due to the boys basketball game at Liberty at 3:15pm we will have to reschedule the afternoon session of the clinic. Time and date will be announced at a later time. We will still have the morning session, the umpire clinic at 11:30, the coaches clinic at 9:30 and the gear exchange 9-11:30.**

The clinic will be held in the Scappoose High School gym so please wear clean tennis shoes.

We will also be collecting lightly used baseball equipment and also handing it out so if you have any old gear laying around that you would like to donate please bring it down.  And if you need any gear please stop by and see if we have anything that will help your little leagurer.

Hope to see you this Saturday. However, times could change depending on how our High School Basketball team is doing at State.  We will send updates as necessary.
