Why Should I Become a Volunteer? Little League Baseball and Softball is an organization designed to build good citizens. It is a program of leadership, preparing today's youth to be tomorrow's leaders. At the local level, Little League relies on a devoted legion of adult volunteers to help ensure that the organization remains structured and runs smoothly. Your local Little League program is always looking for responsible and enthusiastic individuals to support and coordinate Little League events and activities. As a volunteer, you should have a keen interest in the safety, well-being, and overall development of children. By reading further, you will discover that the benefits of volunteering are endless. You will also gain a better understanding of why you should become involved, who volunteers are, what you can do, and how you can sign up.

Playing Little League is about Learning Sportsmanship

"Tips For Little League Parents"

Sportsmanship

Win or Lose, it is all about learning
to be a good sport
.

Ice Cream!!! No one likes to lose, but the nature of a team sport is that one team will always lose. Teach your child that he/she didn't lose, the team lost. And they lost to a team that just happened to play better that day. There is always next time, and the important thing is to learn from the defeats. Its okay to analyze why someone lost, and how they can do better next time. It's never okay to place blame!

Click here to read more.

Respect the rules! This is what the kids should be learning. If you don't agree with an umpires call, keep it to yourself. If there is a team rule that bothers you, well, its their team...not yours. If you think there is a serious problem, take it up with the coach or a League official on your own time, not your child's'. Rule of thumb: during practice or games, don't speak unless spoken to (except, of course, to cheer on ALL the kids).

Many thanks to the Moms and Dads who worked with our league this past season to make it a success.

Dear Parent,

The 2013 Bond Refund checks were mailed on December 26, 2013. This is much later than we had intended to complete this item. Notifications to the families, who did not pay the bond, or Junior Baseball families, or families that forfeited the 2013 bond were mailed on Saturday, December 28, 2013.

It is understandable that your expectations have not been met in the timeliness of the completion of this process. The following is a timeline of the events.

June 23, 2013 – Last spring game played at Hanratty.
November 22, 2013 – Cards counted and entered into spreadsheet
December 5, 2013 – Parent participation reports emailed to Managers, Coaches and Team Mom for review.
December 9, 2013 – Comments from team staff reviewed at EYL Executive Board Meeting.
December 23, 2013 – Checks created
December 26, 2013 – Checks mailed
December 28, 2013 – Statements mailed to remaining EYL members.

We hope the above gives you an understanding of the process and we appreciate your patience.

Thank you,
Elmora Youth League

253 Refund checks and parent participation statements were mailed on 12/26/2013.
59 Statements were mailed to the families who did their share but for some reason (sponsor, staff, etc) did not pay the bond.
141 families will receive a statement but no bond refund. We track volunteer activity, kitchen help, fundraiser sales and league support like staff and sponsorship. The 2013 parent participation information is printed on the form. Please review it and if you have any questions then please bring the statement to registration. The 2014 bond for these families will be $100.

Questions, please e-mail
