Registration opens for Little League
November 26, 2013
Registration of the 2014 Issaquah Little League Baseball and Softball is now open for all boys and girls ages 5 to 15 within the league boundaries.
The league offers T-Ball through major baseball for boys and T-Ball through junior fast-pitch softball for girls.
Early registration saves on fees, and scholarships are available. Register, or get more information, at www.issaquahlittleleague.org.
The growing program has more than 800 players, 150 coaches and 58 teams playing on local fields, including the newly turfed Dodd Field behind Issaquah Valley Elementary School. Instructional T-Ball, Coach-pitch and Coast division teams offer players training in the mechanics and rules of the game, along with sportsmanship and fitness. The competitive divisions play other teams from the district, and local tournaments highlight the season.
Skills training, called “Extra Bases,” for baseball begins in December and runs through February. All fully paid, registered players are eligible to attend free, age-appropriate training with professional instructors and veteran coaches at the Field of Champions indoor facility in Preston.
Similarly, the girls’ fast-pitch softball program offers free “Softball Skills and Diamond Drills training” for fully paid and registered players.
Limited spots for the skills training are available, so early registration is encouraged. The training is made possible through the support from local sponsors.
The Issaquah Little League boundary is based on the geographic attendance area of the following Issaquah School District elementary schools (which feed into Pacific Cascade Middle School, Issaquah Middle School and a portion of Maywood Middle School): Clark, Cougar Ridge, Grand Ridge, Issaquah Valley, Maple Hills, Sunset and Apollo (north of Southeast 128th Street from 164th Avenue Southeast to 212th Avenue Southeast; east of 164th Avenue Southeast from Southeast 128th Street to May Valley Road)
Program descriptions, costs and registration information are available on the website.
