To the San Ramon Valley Little League Community:
On behalf of the newly elected Board of Directors, welcome to the upcoming 2016 Little League baseball season!
A few quick words about myself: This is our family’s sixth year in the league and my fourth serving on the Board of Directors. Previously held positions include Single A Division Director and Director of League Information. I have managed or coached my two sons at all levels from Farm through Majors, and in 2016 I will have the honor of managing both sons on the same team for the first - and probably only - time. Our family is passionate about baseball in general, and we are firmly devoted to SRVLL in particular.
San Ramon Valley Little League exists to provide a fun, competitive, and educational baseball experience for our young players and their families. Our nonprofit league is maintained by volunteers who dedicate their time and talent to promote the championship legacy of the league. At the same time, we strive to improve what we do and how we do it by listening to you. This is your league. We encourage you to get involved, and we welcome your input and efforts.
In the coming year we will address a number of critical challenges, including: the loss of three key fields due to the renovation of Stone Valley Middle School, the ongoing drought conditions that require creative maintenance solutions, and League Age changes instituted by Little League International that will take full effect in January 2018. I look forward to working closely with the Board of Directors, the communities of Danville and Alamo, and with all league families to face these and other issues head-on.
Registration for the Spring 2016 season will begin on October 15, 2015. In the days and weeks ahead, we will provide you with registration information as well as updates on the progress of our new and improved website that will launch soon.
I would personally like to thank Todd Sanders for his many years of tireless dedication and service to the league, especially in his capacity as President since 2013. Under Todd’s leadership and guidance, our league has received major improvements in the areas of safety, training, administration, and overall Little League experience.
Once again, welcome to an exciting new baseball season. We hope that 2016 will be an enjoyable and memorable year for you all.
President of SRVLL
