2022 Season Update - Registration Open

Dear JLL Families,

As we prepare to usher in the Christmas season it also marks the time of year for our year end recap and update.  This season saw a return to play, facility improvements and an EPIC year end finish for our all-star teams.

This past season saw our league increase in participants.  A return to play seemed to be a large part of the reason, and also the league continues to grow in the younger divisions.  We have seen a record number of participants in the Big Bats Division, 6-7’s and 8’s.  This continues to be welcomed news as leagues around us continue to drop in participation and some leagues fold as we continue to grow and support our community.  This upcoming season we expect another year of growth, but it certainly only is an estimate as registrations haven’t opened yet.

We are in the process of making major improvements to the complex.  With participation up, the facility and its usage are also on the rise.  If you follow our Facebook page you might have noticed we completely re-did Iowa Reality and Community Choice Fields.  Both fields saw old dirt removed and new product applied, new fences throughout the field, new dugouts complete with new cement pads and benches and new sod on the infield and collars.  The work done on those fields is what our expectation will be for the remainder of the complex.  In addition, our board has also approved replacing the batting cage nets on half of the cages with the idea we can replace the other half next year.   

Registration for the 2022 season will open up on January 1st.  As we prepare for the new season we’d like to make sure you know we have approved rate increases in some divisions.  The rates for the upcoming season will be the following:

  • Big Bat - $95
  • 6/7 - $150
  • 8’s - $150
  • 9’s - $165
  • 10-11’s - $165
  • 12’s - $165
  • Intermediates - $165
  • Juniors - $150

As we have historically done, we are offering an early bird sign up and extending that window in January.  If you register for the 2022 season prior to January 23rd you will save $10 off your registration fee.  I hope you take a moment to register as doing so early does help us with uniforms, equipment, preparing rosters, coaches and schedules.  Every year we get an influx of registrations in March which slows down everything mentioned above.

If you are concerned about the season and its refund process, we have revised those and adopted the following policy as it relates to refunds.  You can find our Season Disruption Policy here: https://bsbproduction.s3.amazonaws.com/portals/25352/docs/policies/season%20disruption%20policy%20-%20jll.pdf

If you’d like to enroll, but need financial assistance, there are programs to help with that.  Scholarships are available and those can be found here: https://www.littleleague.org/call-up-grant-program

Tryouts — Information will be coming out later, but if you are registering for the 9’s, 10’s, 11’s or 12’s please hold Saturday, March 5th.  We will be arranging tryouts in similar fashion/location as last year, but times have not been finalized.  If you are in another division than listed, you do NOT have a tryout.

We are excited about the upcoming season and all that it brings our facility.  Our families and participants represent themselves in a remarkable manner and we look forward to kicking another season off.  I hope you take the time to register, starting January 1st.

Happy Holidays -

Chris Andrews & Eric Chamberland
