Spring 2017 Registration is OpenUpdated Friday December 23, 2016 by Greenwich Village Little League.
Registration for the 2017 GVLL Spring season is open.
The winter is when we build teams, order uniforms and get equipment set for the upcoming season. We're able to get a head start on all of that by opening registration early, so once again we will be giving discounts to those who sign up over the next few weeks. Register before December 31st and you will pay our early bird rate. For those age 9 and older, the fee includes indoor winter workouts at P3 on Sundays.
The schedule for the Spring season has not been finalized. However,
Because of the timing of public and private school holidays, our
All players will hear from coaches in March, with some divisions having tryouts in February and practices in March (see links on divisions for more info).
Change to GVLL Baseball Majors
Please note that we have made changes to the structure of our Baseball Majors divisions. As of Spring 2017, there will no longer be separate Majors National and Majors American divisions. All players who qualify, try out and are drafted into Majors will play in one combined division, including all 12-year-olds. While you may register your League age 10- or 11-year-old for the Majors division, assignment to that division is contingent on tryout and draft results. We expect that not all 11-year-olds and very few 10-year-olds will be drafted into the 2017 Spring Baseball Majors division. Those who are not will be assigned to a Minors team.
Finally, GVLL is an all-volunteer organization. Everyone who registers will be asked how they are willing to pitch in and everyone will be expected to honor their commitment. Please make your choice knowing that someone from our Volunteer Committee will be following up to confirm your selection and to provide you with further details.
Before you register, please take 3 minutes to review the information below:
