The Board has voted to redraft this year in the Majors division. What does this mean:
There is a new leader for Continental Little League, as Steve Harris was elected as the new league president last month. Steve had served on the CLL Board of Directors for the previous two years, including his role as Vice President last year. Steve, who has also coached in the league for the previous five years, is a husband and father of two boys (Michael and David), both currently playing baseball in Continental. We are very excited to have Steve be the league’s front-runner, as his strong organizational and leadership skills will allow the league to continue to grow and be a vital element of our local community.
We also want to thank former league president Tony Calero for being an important part of Continental Little League for well over a decade. He has dedicated a great deal of his personal time to ensuring our league is run successfully year-after-year. The league thanks Tony for all his guidance and leadership he provided to the league.

Once again, Little League has decided to change the date used to calculate a player's baseball Little League age. For the full story, click here.
In 2014, Little League District Administrators initially voted to move the age determination date from April 30 to December 31, effective with the 2018 season. That was amended by District Administrators and the Little League International Board of Directors in August 2015, moving the date from December 31 to August 31. .
For players born on or before April 30, 2005: The new age determination date of August 31 will be effective starting with the 2018 Little League Baseball Season. For the 2016 and 2017 seasons, these players will use the April 30 age determination date.
For players born between May 1, 2005 and August 31, 2005: The new age determination date of August 31 will be effective starting with the 2019 Little League Baseball Season. For the 2016, 2017, 2018 season, these players will use the April 30 age determination date.
For players born on or after September 1, 2005: The August 31 age determination date will be effective immediately, starting with the 2016 season. This was the implementation used for the 2015 season, with players turning 4 to 9 years old during the 2015 calendar year to use the December 31 age determination date. That implementation remains in place, except instead of using December 31, you will use August 31.
