Sabino Canyon Little League

A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT


Dear Sabino Canyon Little League Family,

My name is Greg Geile and I am the newly elected president of SCLL. Many of you know me from the hours I spend at Udall, rumors are not true, I do not sleep there, those that I have not met I look forward to getting to know during the 2019 Spring Season.

I am joined by some amazing people on the SCLL board, all of whom are committed to a common goal of returning your Sabino Canyon Little League to its former glory. By glory we are not referring to wins and losses as that is not the focus of community baseball. Glory for SCLL is friendships, player development, neighbors, pride, community, sharing a common love of the game and family. SCLL will be glorious!

As well as being the new president of SCLL, I am also the founder of Rollin Baseball Club. Rollin too, is based out of Udall with competitive travel teams ranging from 10u to 14u. To directly support SCLL, Rollin club teams shut down entirely to allow our players to participate in Little League. Being involved in Little League and Travel Ball has given me a unique perspective to see how both forms of organization foster child development and the joy of America's favorite past time - Baseball!

A few bullet points are listed below to help illustrate the new SCLL programs.

Preseason player development and coaching clinics.

SCLL will host a series of preseason clinics in cooperation with Tanque Verde High School Baseball and Rollin Baseball. The clinics will be open to all prospective SCLL players and prospective coaches. Coaches and players alike will participate in fundamental drills, sample practice planning, pitching mechanics, etc. all of which will improve the experience for both the player and the coaches.

Smaller team size.
We will be heavily recruiting new coaches and we ask each one of you to please consider helping with a team. The reason for the push is team size. Take T-ball for example, traditionally little leagues have put 12-14 players on these teams. The love of baseball is learned on the field, not on the bench. After digging into the little league charter, we have learned that our T-ball teams can be reduced to 7 players which means more play time. This is the direction your new SCLL board is taking. We will be reviewing this for every division and are committed to reducing team size and dramatically increasing play time.

Look sharp, play sharp.
We are revamping our entire uniform program. We will now feature fitted SCLL team hats, practice jerseys and game jerseys. Please drop in on the Sabino Canyon Little League Facebook page for a sneak peek.

Umpires and game officials.
We have recruited a new Umpire in Chief to oversee our games. Jose Duran is known state wide for his officiating of games that range form Little League to MLB spring training. We are partnering with Tanque Verde HS, Sahuaro HS and Sabino HS baseball and softball programs to provide umpires for SCLL. The plan is to have those that play the game calling the game. Expert training under Jose will have a dramatic impact of the game experience for our players and coaches.

Part of our plan to rebrand applies to our facilities. You will see improved lighting, equipment, signage and overall SCLL Pride. This will also include some amazing sponsorship opportunities for families and local businesses. We will be communicating those opportunities separately.

Live Feed for 'The Game of the Week'.
SCLL will be broadcasting select games live via our FB page that will allow families members who might be shoveling snow to see their loved ones playing and coaching some ball from afar.

New website and registration program.
We have partnered with Dicks Sporting Goods to develop a new website set to launch December 10th. At that time, early registration will open and we encourage you jump on and register early.

I would like to share a clip from an article that was recently read at our SCLL board meeting, we believe it illustrates perfectly that there is a place for Little League and Travel Ball and if desired both should have a season in your families lives.

“Travel ball has some good qualities, if parents and kids get involved with the right team and play the right way. My son loves playing baseball, and his travel team gives him more time on the field. But, walking through our town’s baseball and softball complex, that message I see time and time again from Little League really hit me – it’s more than the play that happens on the field. Little League is about community. It’s about neighbors socializing with neighbors. It’s about kids playing with their friends. It’s comfortable, and for me, my son, and my wife, Little League feels like family.”

Thank you for taking the time to read my ramblings, the SCLL Board is committed to serving our community. With your help, we can get there and create the bonds and memories that will last a lifetime. This is your SCLL!
