SCLL Softball

Salmon Creek and Hazel Dell Little Leagues are once again proud to partner together for our combined SOFTBALL league. We have worked together for the past four years and built a thriving softball program based out of Luke Jensen Sports Park and HB Fuller.

What's in store for 2018?

All teams can expect to play 16-18 regular season games (depending on age division). Most teams will play one game somewhere between Mon-Fri, and another game on Saturday. This is the traditional schedule. For the more adventurous, we will also offer players the opportunity to play in several invitational tournaments at the 8u, 10u, 12u, and 14u divisions. SCLL is even hosting a 10u/12u (24-team) Summer Slam Invitational Tournament on Memorial Day Weekend at Luke Jensen Sports Park. Later in June, players selected for the all-star team will have an opportunity to represent SCLL during the district tournament, with a chance to travel to the Washington State championships.

Who is Eligible to play?

Anyone who resides within the SCLL or HDLL boundaries OR attends Chinook, Salmon Creek, Felida, Sacajawea, Lake Shore, Hazel Dell, Sarah J. Anderson, Eisenhower, Sonshine, King's Way, or Cornerstone Christian is eligible to play with our combined SCLL/HDLL league!!!

You can register in whatever league boundary you reside and/or attend school in. If you reside and attend school in both boundaries, you can choose where you would like to register. If you both reside and attend school in the same boundary, you MUST register with that particular league. (Here are 3 examples = If you attend Alki and live near Skyview - you must register with SCLL, if you attend Lakeshore and live in Hazel Dell - you must register with HDLL, if you attend Alki but live in Hazel Dell - you can register in either).

Where will we play?

SCLL/HDLL Softball teams play interleague games within District 6 boundaries. Home games are played at the Luke Jensen Sports Park and HB Fuller Park. Luke Jensen Sports Park opened in 2012 and offers multiple lighted fields (natural and turf). Away games are played at various Little League complexes throughout district 6 (Ridgefield, Glenwood, Battle Ground, La Center, etc).

When:

Opening day is 3/10/2018 and the regular season will end 6/9/2018. All-Star teams will continue playing through July. During the regular season, most teams play two games per week - one during the week, and one during the weekend (Saturdays only). League schedules will be developed by District 6 staff. Tournament play is optional (ie. Spring Swing, Summer Slam, etc).

Cost:

$115 per player / PeeWee Division

$125 per player / Minor & Major Division

$150 per player / Junior Division

Teams:

All teams will be drafted as per Little League rules after players have participated in a safety evaluation. The number of coaches/volunteers and registered players will determine the number of teams formed within SCLL/HDLL Softball. In the event we cannot field a full team due to lack of registered players or volunteers at a certain age group, those players will be offered an opportunity to play within neighboring league's (Ridgefield/Glenwood) as in year's past, or receive their money back. That way there is no risk.
