Little League Board of Directors Elections Wednesday November 5th, 7 pm Forum Room More News

Dear Fellow Canastota Little League Parents,

Now that the National, State and Local Elections are over; it’s time to focus on a local election for our Canastota Little League officers and directors. I would hope to see you there for these elections.

This will be Canastota’s 64th year of Little League and Little League’s 76th Anniversary, as this is the largest chartered organization in Canastota; I wanted to personally send you a note about our league and the upcoming year from an Administrative prospective. 

Canastota Little League is a sound organization, administratively, financially and equipped to begin the 2015 season. The relationship with the Village and the School District is sound. Over 300 kids participated in spring, post season and fall baseball/ softball. Our local sponsorships from local businesses continue to be strong.

So, we need a group of people, and it doesn't have to be parents, to run the day-to-day functions of the league. Now, I’m not going to tell you that’s its easy and that it doesn't involve some time, it does, as anything that’s worth doing does. It is a year-round position, not just a spring activity. All of the planning for the year starts the meeting after elections. That meeting is held with both the existing and new board members. All of our existing board members have agreed to help transition new board members into their new roles. 

But, with the right mix of dedicated volunteers this program is so rewarding. As you begin the season on Opening Day in April and have Closing Ceremonies in June and see how much the players have grown in the 9 weeks of the season, and then root for our All-Star teams and then look to Fall to have an opportunity for players to play in an additional developmental program for 6 weeks.

If you like the program, if you don’t like the program, or you have suggestions, this is a great way to have your direct input on how the league is run.
If you have any additional questions feel free to give me a call at 440-1434
