Our SLL mission statement is very much in line with Little League International philosophy of  promoting, developing, and supervising the interest of those who will participate in Little League Baseball.  Our town has enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship with surrounding town’s Little League programs who regularly send us outstanding athletes to participate in our Fall Ball Program.  Our Fall Baseball program is designed to provide each player the opportunity to improve their baseball skills in a safe environment that also helps to prepare each of these athletes for the next level of competition.

SLL is committed to continuing the effort of exploring all options as a way to better prepare each players for their upcoming Spring Season.  With this structure, we believe our AAA and Majors Divisions will enable each player to work on their game, in a safe, yet still competitive environment, that will allow each player to develop at their own pace.  The AA Division will focus on baseball skill, baseball knowledge and overall player development.  This Division will attempt to better prepare our next generation of baseball players and allow them to gain skills through clinics, practices and games.
