The Parent Connection – One Successful Year Later!
This issue marks the one-year anniversary of The Parent Connection. Little League® launched this newsletter in October, 2013 to enhance the dialog between Little League and one of our most treasured audiences – parents. We wanted to learn what you were experiencing at the local level – what works and what doesn’t. We invited you to share your thoughts on where we’ve hit homeruns and where we need to improve. You certainly took that invitation seriously, and we are so grateful you did. We used your feedback to develop stories that educated, informed, and entertained, and we hope you look forward to reading those stories when The Parent Connection arrives in your inbox.

Throughout the year, Little League communicated our views on a variety of important subjects like rule changes and some cautionary words about travel ball – a topic that produced some spirited debate. We shared Little League experiences from high-profile celebrities from professional athletes to Hollywood actors. We even provided uniquely designed Backyard Tips, so you could enjoy baseball and softball right alongside your Little Leaguer®.

In our inaugural year, we launched The Parent Committee, a group of more than 100 Little League parents and guardians from all corners of the globe. We tapped into their knowledge to further understand what we as an organization can do to provide the very best experience for everyone in the Little League family.

In the next year, and well beyond that, we promise to continue to provide you with content that you’ll find valuable. The staff at Little League who works on The Parent Connection will always be true to the belief that what we do is for the betterment of our Little Leaguers. To achieve that aspiration, we understand that we need to constantly build on the trust parents have shown us during this first year.
