State Softball Championships
by posted 07/13/2016

Woburn Little League is proud to announce that it is hosting the 2016 Massachusetts State Softball Championships at Gonsalves Park. Action starts Thursday night July 14th when the Woburn Major all stars take on Joe Schwartz Little League from Worcester. First pitch is at 5:30pm on the back field. Then Friday is game #2 of the Major Championships. On Saturday July 16th, the Junior division plays for the title. Peabody versus Charlton-Webster at 10:00am. Then the Senior girls play at 12:30pm for their first game, Peabody versus Charlton-Webster [seniors] After the Senior game hang around for the Kelley Towncar Frisbee Fling. You purchase a frisbee at the field, then when signaled, you fling it towards a target in the middle of the field. Closest to the target, or obviously in the target, wins $250. After that the Juniors play game #2 at 3:00pm and the Seniors wrap up a busy day at Gonsalves by playing at 5:30pm. If needed, Sunday will be the deciding day for all divisions if necessary. So come out to the park, enjoy some delicious treats from our cracker jack volunteers manning the YellowBall Cafe @Gonsalves and take in some great softball action!

2016 Jimmy Fund registration
by posted 06/18/2016

** REMINDER to Register**

Time is Running out

 Registration for all Divisions are LOW especially the 11 -12 year old group

Woburn Little League Jimmy Fund Baseball Program 2016

 

Payment is due at the time of registration - If payment is not made registration will be deleted automatically

 

The Jimmy Fund program enables Little League players to continue playing baseball during the summertime and provides these youngsters with an opportunity to grow as individuals by developing baseball skills and building self-confidence. Jimmy Fund Baseball is open to all Woburn LL players who wish to play. Simply register and pay on the Woburn LL website and then teams are formed based on registration numbers that exist for each age group. As always, our program would not be possible without volunteers needed to coach these players. 

 

If you are interested in coaching, please email woburnlittleleague@verizon.net

 

Little League and The Jimmy Fund are two institutions dedicated to providing children with the opportunity to become healthy adults. In this joint effort, participating Little League teams and players raise funds for the Dana-Farber Institute while continuing to play ball. The program allows players to help other, less fortunate children.

 

The registration fee to participate is $80.00. With that registration, a $50 donation will be made in the teams name to the Jimmy Fund. In addition, all additional funds raised by the fundraising efforts of the teams and players go directly to the Jimmy Fund. Teams from Reading, North Reading, Stoneham, Wakefield, Wilmington, and Woburn are expected to participate. The Jimmy Fund and Baseball have a long and great history here in Massachusetts of giving back. Please join us in a 8 to 10 game season running Mid July Mid-August.   All players receive a Jimmy Fund Hat and shirt and teams qualify for the single-elimination playoffs, which are held right after the season.  The team manager will assist and encourage the players with fundraising efforts. In prior years, our Little League District (MA District 13) has raised over $50,000 for the Dana-Farber Institute.

 

The season will run from Mid-July to Mid-August. The teams will play 8-10 games over the course of four weeks. All teams qualify for the single-elimination playoffs, which are held right after the season.

 

These are the age ranges and birth dates for the divisions: 

 

8-year-olds September 1st, 2007 to August 31st, 2008

9-year-olds September 1st, 2006 to August 31st, 2007

10-year-old to 12-year-old May 1, 2005, to Dec 31, 2003

There are three divisions:

8-9-year-old division

9-10-year-old division

11-12-year-old division

Thank you, WLL Board of Directors and the Jimmy Fund.

 

Payment is due at the time of registration - If payment is not made registration will be deleted automatically

Code of Conduct
by posted 05/13/2015

Woburn Little League has implemented the following Parent Code of Conduct for the important message it holds about the proper role of parents in supporting their child in sports. Parents should read, understand and sign this form prior to their children participating in our league.

Any parent guilty of improper conduct at any game or practice will be asked to leave the facility and be suspended from the following game. Repeat violations may cause a multiple game suspension, or the season forfeiture of the privilege of attending all games.

Preamble

The essential elements of character-building and ethics in sports are embodied in the concept of sportsmanship and six core principles:

  • Trustworthiness

  • Respect

  • Responsibility

  • Fairness

  • Caring, and

  • Good Citizenship The highest potential of sports is achieved when competition reflects these “six pillars of character.”

    I therefore agree:

  • I will not force my child to participate in sports.

  • I will remember that children participate to have fun and that the game is for youth, not adults.

  • I will inform the coach of any physical disability or ailment that may affect the safety of my child or the safety of others.

  • I will learn the rules of the game and policies of the league.

  • I (and my guests) will be a positive role model for my child and encourage sportsmanship by showing respect and courtesy, and by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, officials and spectators at every game, practice or other sporting event.

  • I (and my guests) will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, player, or parent such as booing and taunting; refusing to shake hands; or using profane language or gestures.

7. I will not encourage any behaviors or practices that would endanger the health and well being of the athletes.

8. I will teach my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.

9. I will demand that my child treat other players, coaches, officials and spectators with respect regardless of race, creed, color, sex or ability.

10. I will teach my child that doing one’s best is more important than winning, so that my child will never feel defeated by the outcome of a game or his/her performance.

11. I will praise my child for competing fairly and trying hard, and make my child feel like a winner every time.

12. I will never ridicule or yell at my child or other participants for making a mistake or losing a competition.

13. I will emphasize skill development and practices and how they benefit my child over winning. I will also de-emphasize games and competitions in the lower age groups.

14. I will promote the emotional and physical well- being of the athletes ahead of any personal desire I may have for my child to win.

15. I will respect the officials and their authority during games and will never question, discuss, or confront coaches at the game field, and will take time to speak with coaches at an agreed upon time and place.

16. I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free from drugs, tobacco, and alcohol and I will refrain from their use at all sports events.

17. I will refrain from coaching my child or other players during games and practices, unless I am one of the official coaches of the team.
