Developmental Skills Clinic


Swansea Little League is offering an exciting opportunity to get your players ready for the 2017 season with a 4 week Developmental Skills Clinic. This clinic will run on Wednesday nights from 5 to 7pm at Teamworks 732 Lees River Ave, Somerset, MA 02725 and will begin on March 1st 2017 and run for 4 weeks. This program is for players age 8 thru 12.

During this clinic, players will work on proper fielding and throwing techniques as well as pitching and catching. The goal of this clinic is not only to prepare for the 2017 season but also to continue to strengthen the league as a whole by practicing good mechanics through muscle memory drills.

The total cost of this clinic will be $35 per player for all 4 weeks and will be done through an online registration. Any coach that would like to assist in this training or if there are any questions concerning this clinic can be referred to the Player Development Coordinator Paul Nadeau at 508-802-0510 or drummer0627@yahoo.com.

We hope that you take advantage of this great opportunity to continue to train your players and look forward to a great 2017 Swansea Little League season!

Planning for the 2017 Season



Hello everyone.  With these warm temperatures it is easy to think about baseball, and we certainly have.  We have analyzed the projected number of players for the 2017 season and have decided to make some changes for the upcoming season.  

The first change effects players age 10 & 11.  This year we will re-introduce the "Minor" Division to the league.  With greater numbers of 10 year olds it is important to insure this age group has a program that will better address player development.  We will conduct Try-outs for the 10, 11 and 12 year olds.  The Major Division managers will then conduct their draft from this group.  ALL 12 year olds will play in the Major Division, 10s and 11s will be drafted according to player ability.  The remaining 10 and 11 year olds will make up the minor division.  Based on projections we anticipate the Farm, Minor and Major Divisions to have 4 teams in each. 

All 8 and 9 year olds will continue to make up the Farm Division.

All 7 year olds and second year 6 year olds will make up the Instructional Division 

All 4, 5 and first year 6 year olds will make up the TBall Division. 

The Challenger Division will be comprised of players with physical and/or developmental disabilities.

Ruels & Regulations Updates for 2017

This winter, the Little League® International Board of Directors has approved new rule and regulation changes that will take effect starting in the 2017 season. Along with two major administrative changes to background checks and residency requirements, the 2017 rule and regulation updates focus on increasing the pace of play across all divisions of Little League and continuing to help promote sportsmanship on and off the field.

Little League has also created a full breakdown of all of the rule and regulation changes, including clarification on each. This page, found at LittleLeague.org/Rules, will be updated frequently with any new rule and regulation changes.

Swansea Little League Receives ASAP Award


2016 ASAP Award
TEN U.S. LITTLE LEAGUE® PROGRAMS HONORED WITH REGIONAL ASAP AWARDS FOR THEIR SAFETY PREPAREDNESS

The safety of all Little League® players, volunteers, and fans is of upmost importance for Little League International. In 1995, Little League established the A Safety Awareness Program (ASAP), to encourage local Little League programs to create safety plans specific to their facilities and league. This plan would be used to help guide that league to a successful year.

With the support of Musco Sports Lighting and AIG Insurance, Little League recognizes those leagues who go above and beyond with their ASAP plans each year. At an annual luncheon during the Little League World Series, two leagues from each of the five United States regions are recognized for their participation in the ASAP program. Little League District Administrators are also recognized for their work in helping local leagues create their ASAP plans.
