D.A. Bulletin - July/August

JULY/AUGUST 2014 | ARCHIVE | SIGN-UP

Little League® on Television: In late July and the through the month of August, 141 Little League Baseball® and Little League Softball® tournament games are scheduled to be televised on ABC, the ESPN family of networks, New England Sports Network (NESN) and the Longhorn Network.

The complete World Series television schedule and the day-by-day Little League Baseball World Series viewing schedule are available at LLBWS.org.

We hope you can visit one or more of these venues to see the games in person. If not, we invite you to enjoy the games on television or through the WatchESPN app and Little League World Series website.

As the season comes to a close, take time to assess which leagues are not offering divisions of softball, teenage baseball and the Little League Challenger Division®. In an effort to increase interest in offering these divisions for the 2015 season, call attention to the Little League International tournament games televised by the ESPN family of networks.

2015 Chartering and Marketing Toolkit: For the 2015 season, the Chartering and Marketing Toolkit will be delivered to current League Presidents on file, so it is important that you encourage the leagues in your district to update their league officer information through the Little League Data Center. Please follow-up with all leagues to confirm that each has updated its league officers after the conclusion of the annual Board of Directors election.

2014 Tournament Mileage Reporting: The deadline for submitting tournament mileage reports is Sept. 15. The form is available here.

Potential New Leagues: District Administrators (D.A.s) and assistants (A.D.A.s) receiving inquiries from potential new leagues are asked to contact Dan Velte, Director of League Development, at: 570-326-1921, ext. 2223; e-mail: dvelte@LittleLeague.org; or Sam Ranck, League Development Manager and Director of the Challenger Division, at: 570-326-1921, ext. 2254; e-mail sranck@LittleLeague.org.

League Finder Developed by ACTIVE Network: Each day, Little League® receives a significant number of calls from families looking for a local Little League program to participate in. Little League has an electronic league finder tool that allows all leagues in your district to be listed on the national league finder database. Families will be able to locate leagues and obtain contact information by simply entering their home address. We encourage D.A.’s to develop a district boundary map via the league finder. Encourage your leagues to take advantage of this great opportunity.

Global Connection Touch Table: Local Leagues can be a part of the World of Little League® through the Global Connections Touch Table. For the first time, any local Little League in the world will have a direct connection to the Little League Museum -- thanks to the Global Connections Touch Table. Uploading pictures and information about a local league takes only a few minutes through a basic eteamz website.

End-of-Year Evaluations: As we approach the end of another exciting Little League® season, this is a great time to encourage your leagues to hold an end-of-year meeting with parents or distribute a survey to obtain valuable feedback about their experience during the year. This information will be valuable as they look to improve their league for future years. Ask leagues to share these ideas at your next district meeting and discuss as a group how to improve.

This District Administrator Bulletin is sent monthly to District Administrators and Assistant District Administrators via e-mail.
