News and Announcements
JDLL Team Store Now Open!!
The league is happy to announce that a Jamesville DeWitt Little League spirit wear/team store is now open but only for a limited time!!
There are a significant number of clothing options, many of which weren’t available last year. This year’s designs also have our new league logo on them. A portion of each purchase goes directly to the league so every t-shirt, hat, hoodie, etc. helps to give support.
So that items can be ordered and then distributed near the start of the little league season, the store will only be open until this Friday, March 31st.

TOMORROW'S SKILL ASSESSMENT
Please READ CAREFULLY…
ALL 8 and 9 year olds signed up for baseball and softball should arrive by 2pm tomorrow to 481 Sports Center. Plan on getting there a few minutes early so that we can get your child checked in.
ALL 10-12 year olds signed up for baseball and softball should arrive by 3:30pm tomorrow to 481 Sports Center. Likewise, plan on getting there a few minutes early so that we can get your child checked in. Players who have already played at the majors level for JDLL need not attend the assessment.
Skill assessments for each age group will last approximately 1.5 hours with players rotating through multiple stations (throw, pitch, catch, field, hit). It is therefore important that you please try and get there on time.
Equipment needed includes a bat and glove. It is a turf surface so players should be fine with a pair of sneakers.
We look forward to seeing everyone again and the start of the season!
Countdown to End of Registration and Skill Assessment
There are less than two weeks now until the first registration deadline of Friday, March 10th.

- ensure your child is placed at the appropriate level.
- achieve a proper skill balance among teams.
- Failure to attend skill assessment means that your child may not be placed at the appropriate level.

- All League Age 12 year olds who did not play Majors in 2022 will automatically play Majors per Little League International Rules.
- Please be aware that, in addition to skill level, player placements and the number of teams for Majors and AAA may also be dictated by other factors including Little League International rules for team sizes, the number of qualified pitchers and catchers at each level, etc.
