MESSAGE FROM THE TLL PRESIDENT

Parents,

I want to thank you for signing up your child for Topsfield Little League baseball this year. The goals for TLL in the 2021 spring season were simple: be safe, have fun, learn and enjoy the game, compete and want to play again next year - all while adapting to changes COVID has brought us.

Baseball is a great sport and the TLL Board of Directors is making every effort to ensure that the children of Topsfield enjoy playing this year and many years to come. Any suggestions for improving our league are always welcome, and as always we also welcome any support from parents with our many volunteer opportunities.  Parent volunteers need to complete a CORI form and return to Nelson Ubaldo.   CORI Form

Right now, all players are eligible for Fall Ball - a loose, fun program intended to bridge the gap between the spring/summer and next winter's sessions.  For older kids it's a last chance to play together before graduating up to Babe Ruth's larger field next year, and for the youngest kids it's incredibly helpful to sharpen their skills and lock in all the gains they made this year so far. 

Be on the lookout for our Winter Training Sessions in February 2022 for 2nd through 6th graders!

Please feel free to email with any questions or comments. 

Best regards,

Tom Hagerty

President, TLL

REGISTRATION

Why Register Now?

With hundreds of players and coaches, long term planning is essential for a successful baseball season.  Registering early helps the volunteers behind Topsfield Baseball make it all happen - from purchasing of equipment and uniforms, reserving the limited field space we have in town, and organizing baseball schedules across the five leagues and three towns. Getting a head start with respect to the number of players each year really helps in the planning process and late sign ups often create logistical issues in setting up the number of teams, numbers of players per team, etc. That's why we encourage everyone to sign up as early as possible during the registration period and avoid the late fee.

Also, If you register by March 15th each year all eligible players will have the fee waived for our annual winter training sessions.

Age / Eligibility

To be eligible for Topsfield Little League baseball boys and girls must be at least 5 years old but no older than 12 years of age on 8/31/21. There are no exceptions.  "Little League age" can be determined here https://www.littleleague.org/play-little-league/determine-league-age/

 Coaching

Volunteers and coaches are always needed.  At the youngest ages, Baseball skill and expertise is NOT a prerequisite... and an ideal Kindergarten, 1st or 2nd grade coaching team has one or two parents managing the dugout.  Get involved!  Simply helping the kids keep track of batting order and their hats and gloves between inning enables far more baseball learning and fun.  Reach out to topsfieldlittleleaguepresident@gmail.com or talk to your child's head coach to get started. 

What Does The Registration Fee Cover?

The registration fee includes: The Annual Little League of America Charter, the replacement of old equipment, new uniforms & hats, umpires (Minors and Majors), and the annual Parks and Cemetery  fee for field maintenance. Please note that a $50 late fee will be assessed on March 15th.

Scholarships are available in cases of financial need. Please contact Jay Kollias at jjkollias@gmail.com
