Thank you for your sponsorship of Simsbury Little League. As a sponsor you are continuing the great tradition that is Simsbury Little League. Simsbury Little League has been teaching Simsbury youth the joy of little league baseball for over 61 years. The league is dependent on registration fees and donations from local businesses to continue to maintain, develop and care for the Little League program and complex. Introduced in 2004, the banner-advertising program provides an opportunity for local businesses to show their support for Simsbury Little League. The money raised with the banner-advertising program goes to improvements made to the fields used by SLL.
 
A banner sponsorship includes the following:
 
  • A 2x8 foot hard backed banner sign, using sponsor's logo, will be hung on the outfield fences of Memorial Park.
  • A sponsor add and/or coupon in our Spring Program Book.  This book includes the team rosters of all 50+ teams and congratulatory messages from parents.  The book will be distributed to over 600 families in the league. 
  • A rotating web banner located at the top of the home page for SLL’s website (www.simsburylittleleague.com).  The banner will include a link to sponsor's website when available. Our webpage is where all Little League families go to register and to keep informed about upcoming dates.  With over 600 families in our league we have quite a lot of website traffic recorded throughout the year!

Age Determination Date Has Changed

The Age Determination Date Has Changed

What You Need To Know

For Baseball Divisions Only

 

In April 2014, Little League International amended the age determination date from April 1st to December 31st.  Since that time there has been much feedback regarding this change.  In August 2015, the age determination date was again amended and was moved to August 31.

Effective as of November 13, 2015, a new implementation plan has been established, grandfathering children born between May 1 and August 31, 2005 as 12-year-olds for the 2018 season, using the April 30 age determination date. This four-month group of individuals will begin utilizing the new, August 31 age determination date beginning with the 2019 season.  All other children participating in Little League Baseball will continue to follow the implementation strategy established in August 2015.

 

Why the change?

In 2011, Little League International conducted very detailed participation research. As a result of that research, they learned that parents, players, and volunteers wanted to see Little League become, as a whole, a younger program, and give children an easier way to play Little League with their classmates. Since the research concluded, Little League revamped its Tee Ball program and changed its residency requirements to allow children to play in the league where their school is located. Adjusting the Age Determination Date will help achieve the goal of making Little League younger. And, making the date August 31, the same that many schools in many states use for student registration, allows Little Leaguers to play with their classmates.  This change will make the Majors Division, truly a 12 and under program – ensuring that no child playing Majors Division will turn 13 years old at any point during their final season in that division.

 

For players born on or after September 1, 2005: The August 31 age determination date will be effective immediately, starting with the 2016 season. This was the implementation used for the 2015 season, with players turning 5 to 9 years old during the 2015 calendar year to use the December 31 age determination date. That implementation remains in place, except instead of using December 31, you will use August 31.
