How do I determine the proper division for my child?

Playing divisions are determined by age and sport. You can use the Little League Baseball/Softball Age Calculator (be sure to select the correct sport)  to determine the appropriate division for your child. VSLL does reserve the right to move children to different divisions based on their playing ability and concern for safety. 

When does VSLL play?

Fall Ball: Begins in September to November. Registration usually beings in late July. This is a more relaxed and instructional season. It is the perfect time to try the sport! 
Spring Ball: Assessments typically are held in late January and play begins in late-February / early-March.   Registration for Spring season begins in November. This is a more focused season. Competition is tougher and score and standings are kept. 
All Stars: June - August. All Stars are extremely competitive. This is for players 8 and older. All Star rosters are selected by division managers and players MUST have played during the Spring season to be considered.  Teams have the opportunity to play in District, Regional, State, and National tournaments. 

Where does VSLL play?

VSLL teams practice and play their home games at two parks in Viera/Suntree. Fields are determined by division and availability. 

Viera Regional Park (VRP): Located at 2300 Judge Fran Jamieson Way, Viera, FL 32940
Suntree Fields: Located on Jordan Blass Dr, Melbourne, FL 32940 (Adjacent to the Suntree Library and Suntree Elementary)


What equipment does my child need?

Parents of children starting tball or softball for the first time may question what equipment is necessary for the first day of practice. 

Players are expected to provide: Rubber molded cleats (tballers may wear sneakers and juniors/seniors baseball may wear metal cleats), protective athletic cups for all males above tball, approved batting helmets (not mandatory, but recommended for sanitary reasons), bats, baseball/softball glove or mit, and baseball pants (game pants are provided during the spring season). 

VSLL does supply some community equipment including: uniforms (Fall: jersey and hat ; Spring: pants, belt, socks, jersey and hat) catchers gear, tball tees, practice balls, game balls, team bags for helmets, batting helmets (although most children prefer to wear their own helmets for sanitary reasons), and tball bats. 

What bat can I use ?

Bat rules differ for each age group. Little League does have a very thorough explanation on their website. You can access that information HERE!  Please be sure to review the requirements for your division prior to purchasing a bat. It can be an expensive mistake, if an unacceptable bat is purchased.

Also, our generous sponsors at Dick's Sporting Good and Academy Sports and Outdoors offer VSLL Discount Weekends at the beginning of each season. It may be worth the wait, if you can! 


How do I find out if my child's games or practices are canceled?

Your manager will inform you if a practice / game is canceled or rescheduled for reasons other than weather. Games canceled for weather or field related issues will be addressed through our Text Notification System - RainedOut.  To register for the Text Notification System, text : HITS15 to 84483.

You may also remove yourself from the Text Notification System through the website, RainedOut.net

 

Who do I contact if I have a question about my child and baseball/softball?

If you have a registration question, contact Aran Hissam at [email protected]

Once your child is assigned to a team, your child's manager or team mom is the best resource for information.

If you feel you need to escalate the situation above the team manager, you can contact our Communication Manager (Danielle Harper - [email protected]), and she will make sure your question/concern is sent to the correct Division VP, Coaching Coordinator or VP of Baseball/Softball Operations. Our goal is to get your issue addressed promptly and resolved at the lowest level. Please do not hesitate to reach out, if you are concerned, confused or have a suggestion! 


Can I sign-up  my child up if money is tight at home?

Absolutely! We understand  families face financial hardships from time-to-time, but we would never want to take sporting opportunities away from a child. If you are interested in obtaining a VSLL Player Scholarship, please email our Registration Officer  for an application. 

Understand there are multiple levels of approval for each child before a scholarship is offered. Also, here is no guarantee a scholarship will be available for each applicant. Families MUST reapply each season for VSLL Player Scholarships.

Additionally, Volunteer Hours MUST be completed as a 'repayment' for the scholarship. These hours may include concessions stand help, field prep, or All Star Staffing (if VSLL hosts a tournament). Each child is REQUIRED to pay for fundraising cards (traditionally $30 per child) during the SPRING SEASON, but they can be resold to recoup out-of-pocket expenses. Each scholarship athlete MUST provided their own glove, helmet, baseball pants (during Fall season only), and appropriate footwear.  Please contact the Registration Officer with any questions.
