Please register as soon as possible so we can ensure the right number of teams, managers, coaches and volunteers needed for the upcoming season. Registration deadline for major and minor divisions is January 22, 2016 at 12pm (noon), as players must participate in mandatory tryouts prior to the player draft.  We work hard to include all players, and late registrations may still be accepted after January 22, 2016, but will be limited to space available. 


Email us at if you have questions. 


Early Registration Discount


After December 31, 2015 registration fees at all levels will increase:


  • T-Ball and Pioneer by $15 per player  
  • Farm, Minor, Major, Intermediate, Juniors by $50 per player  




SMLL is an entirely volunteer run organization. All families are asked to volunteer at both the league and team levels.


League Volunteering - At least one parent from each family will be asked to choose a league volunteer job at registration. Click here for information on the volunteer jobs. Parents may opt-out of league volunteer tasks by paying a $100 Opt-Out donation to the league.


Team volunteering is mandatory - the jobs will be determined later by your player’s Team Manager/Team Parent and typically includes field preparation, snack shack duty, announcer and score keeping. There may be a few options available to parents who wish to hire paid teen volunteers to do their assigned shifts/tasks. The cost of such hires is typically $20 per instance and arrangements have to be made directly with the individual volunteers.


Managing/Coaching/Team Parent - If you are interested in managing a team or coaching (helping the team manager), please sign yourself up during registration.  You will not be charged anything.  All manager, assistant coaches, and team parents will be assigned using this system.
