Glebe Little League is a not for profit organization run completely by volunteers. We offer baseball programs for girls and boys from age 5 to 18.
The Little League program assists children in developing the qualities of citizenship, discipline, teamwork and physical well-being. If it isn't fun, it isn't Little League.
Our league is committed to the development of skills, attitude and sportsmanship in players and coaches. The goal is to create a love for the game in everyone involved. Glebe Little League is dedicated to promoting the game by helping players succeed in learning and playing the game. Coaches will be respected and supported as they develop their skills as coaches and leaders.
In order to participate in one of our programs, players must either reside or attend a school within our boundaries. We welcome players from many areas stretching from the Glebe Annex to Beacon Hill. Please check our boundary information if you're not sure if you're in our catchment.
The spring program begins in May and for most divisions runs until the end of June. Big League runs until early August. Teams play a 10-12 game schedule and there are playoffs in every division except T-Ball and Rookies. Every player receives a team shirt and ball cap.
The goal of spring ball is to provide a safe, fun, developmental environment for players, coaches and umpires. All players are assigned to a team - there are no "tryouts" - only sort out evaluations which help form fair and balanced teams as much as possible. Players are asked to attend one evaluation session so that their skill level can be assessed. Our programs are tiered into two levels at in the major and junior divisons.
Rules of equal play are mandated and designed to ensure all players have fun and enjoy a positive experience in our league. Players are entitled to equal playing time and will be rotated fairly through all playing positions. Spring ball involves learning the rules, skills and strategy of baseball as well as reinforcing fair play, good sportsmanship and dealing with competition with a positive attitude.
Our coaches are volunteers who put a great deal of time and energy into coaching our teams. We consider it a privilege to be involved with children in a coaching role. Training clinics are provided by the league and many of our coaches have played the game. Parents and players must keep in mind that coaches are learning as well and are not perfect. People interested in undertaking the privileged position coaches enjoy, should indicate this when registering their children and plan to attend the coaching clinic in mid-April. Details will be posted as soon as they become available.
Because our league relies on volunteers, parents are expected to support their child's experience by volunteering in some capacity.
