Field Improvements Fund

Continental Little League (CLL) is in URGENT need of support to fund long overdue updates to our kids' playing fields and facilities. Historically, we have been able to keep our Little League participation fees lower than average by using local school fields for our practices and games. We maintain these fields as part of this agreement. Ygnacio Valley Elementary, which is our primary field location, is in desperate need of TLC including new turf, sprinklers, bases, mound, storage lockers, snack shack, and dugouts. All contributions go directly to CLL's Field Improvements Fund.

Please consider making a donation to support our local community and Continental Little League. Any amount will help support our goal of providing the kids with better facilities and fields.

In order to donate, go to our GoFundMe Page
 
Please share this link with your family, friends, players' grandparents, or any other members of the community that support outdoor youth activities such as Little League baseball.
 
We appreciate your support and look forward to an amazing 2016 Little League Season!

Calling All Youth Umpires!

Continental Little League is continuing the Youth Umpire Program for the 2016 season!  This program, introduced last year, will supplement the Adult Volunteer Umpire Program to ensure all Majors, AAA, and AA baseball games are outfitted with trained and qualified umpires.  In order for the program to be successful, we need responsible youths who are interested in giving back to the community (while earning some extra cash!). 

The Youth Umpire Flyer and the Youth Umpire FAQ has information about the program, most importantly the mandatory training clinic, which is scheduled for Sunday February 28th from 1pm - 5pm at Ygnacio Valley Elementary, Major Field.

If interested in becoming a Youth Umpire, please register at this link: Youth Umpire Registration.  You must register before attending the clinic. 

Please send this flyer along to any youths you think would be interested.  Additional information is located on the Umpires page.


Skills Evaluation Pictures

Thanks to all the parents, coaches, and volunteers for coming out this weekend to help with the Skills Evaluations.  Although it was a bit cool, we got lucky and the rain stayed mostly away.  It was great to see the kids back out on the field!


Field Prep for Skills Evaluations

Thanks to all the Cobra parents who volunteered their time today to prepare the Ygnacio Valley Major field for Continental Skills Evaluation next weekend.  This is a great way for the Cobra program to give back a bit to Continental.  Great work everyone, as the field is looking real good!  Keep in mind there is a field clean-up day scheduled for all families on February 27th. 

New League President

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.
