Little League Signup Period Approaching
Registration of the 2018 Emmetsburg Summer Little League and Pony League programs will take place on Tuesday, March 6, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the Pizza Ranch in Emmetsburg. Registration forms will not be sent home with students. The Summer Little League and Pony Leagues are open to children five years of age by September 15, 2017, through the eighth grade in 2018.
To many, it may seem early to be talking about baseball and softball, but with all that goes into the setting up of teams, acquiring coaches and setting up schedules, the Little League board must stick to a firm timeline. If you have any questions, please contact Val Morton at 712-298-1582.
Registrations will not be accepted after March 20. Any registrations made between March 6 and March 20 may be picked up/dropped off at West Elementary School in Emmetsburg with payment. Registration is $25 for Little League and $40 for Pony League per entrant.
Before signup time, please take a moment to consider what you as a parent have to offer to the programs, as coaches and umpires are needed. A concession stand shift is mandatory, unless an opt-out payment is made. It takes a lot of effort to run a quality program at a minimal cost to parents and families. The Little League board thanks you in advance for your help. Our goal is to offer the children in the community the opportunity to participate in a fun, educational and well-organized program;
The mission of the Emmetsburg Youth Baseball and Softball program is to provide recreational activities in which youth can develop fundamental baseball and softball skills in an atmosphere that exposes them to positive sportsmanship, while enjoying the camaraderie of a team sport.
