Thank you to ConEdison for their support and use of the fields!
The Peter Stuyvesant Little League (PSLL) was founded in 1956 and for 60 consecutive years, in partnership with Con Edison, and more recently Compass Rock Real Estate, has served thousands of baseball- and softball-playing children of Manhattan’s east side on its Con Edison Ballfields and Murphy’s Brother’s Park on Avenue C, adjacent to Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village.
With more than 700 players each season, PSLL, a fully volunteer, non-profit organization chartered by Little League International, runs winter, spring and summer baseball programs for children ages four through sixteen. A bedrock of family and community in New York City, PSLL offers not only baseball and softball instruction to boys and girls, but also such intangibles as sportsmanship, teamwork, courage and the importance of fitness. Registration is open to all interested players either residing or attending school between E. 14th and E. 72nd Streets, east of Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.
For more information about our many programs, we invite you to visit the various links on our website or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Register your player now for discounts on our winter clinic and spring season programs! Our PSLL/Compass Rock Real Estate Winter Clinics, held inside of the heated Court Tent in Stuyvesant Town, will run for eight consecutive weeks beginning the weekend of January 8, 2016, through the end of February 2016. The Winter Clinics are staffed by professional college baseball and softball coaches and players and are open to boys and girls 8-16 years old. The cost for the Winter Clinics is $150/player for the entire eight-week program.
A tee-ball tournament for younger players will also be added this year at the Court Tent on weekends in December – check back soon for more details!
Spring season Little League registration is also now open! Register before January 15, 2016, and save on fees! Early registration for the spring season is $200/player – the cost will rise to $225 beginning January 15, 2016. Opening day for most divisions will be on the weekend of April 2, 2016.
Register for a winter clinic before December 1st and receive a discount code for $25 off of spring registration, valid until December 1st! Also, PSLL offers a sibling discount of $25 for each additional child registered from the same family for the spring season.
Even though winter threatens to approach, we hope you and your players are nevertheless thinking about baseball and softball! For the first time ever, PSLL is happy to provide two special Winter Tee-Ball Events at the heated Court Tent in Stuyvesant Town on Saturday, December 12th, and Saturday, December 19th -- both events will run from 2-4 pm. And both events are FREE!
Winter Tee-Ball is open to boys and girls between the ages of 4-7 years old, and especially to our players who were enrolled in either Tee-Ball or Instructional Softball this past 2015 season. And it's also open to our new friends thinking about playing with PSLL for the first time this coming spring!
The Court Tent, which will be located on the east side of Stuytown on the Avenue C Loop, can accommodate two simultaneous Tee-Ball games, so we're expecting to have lots of tee-ball fun. PSLL will provide bases and other equipment and support, but please remember to bring your own glove and a bat! Uniforms won't be necessary, but feel free to wear your 2015 uniform if you'd like.
So we might get an idea of how many children to expect, we'd appreciate an RSVP to email@example.com, indicating which date (or both) you're planning to attend. And we'd also very much like to hear from our past season's Tee-Ball and Instructional Softball coaches as well -- if you can help out on either 12/12 or 12/19, please likewise send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know!
We hope to see you in the Court Tent next month!
Little League International has once again changed the age determination dates for players, effective for the 2016 season. The new age cutoff date is August 31st, and the change primarily affects players born on or after September 1, 2005. As a practical matter, this means that some children born between September-December who played last season in PSLL may be placed in the same division as last year. Our registration software will automatically populate your child into his or her age-appropriate division, but contact PSLL at email@example.com if you would prefer for your child to move to a different division. Such requests will be handled on a case-by-case basis, and at the discretion of PSLL. Any divisional switch will depend on the child’s abilities and maturity, as well as whether or not there’s room in the requested division. You may also refer to this Little League age calculator to determine your child’s division. For more specifics, according to Little League:
For players born on or before August 31, 2005: The new age determination date of August 31 will be effective starting with the 2018 Little League Baseball Season. For the 2016 and 2017 seasons, these players will use the April 30 age determination date.
For players born on or after September 1, 2005: The new age determination date will be effective immediately, starting with the 2016 season. This was the implementation used for the 2015 season, with players turning 4 to 9 years old during the 2015 calendar year to use the December 31 age determination date. That implementation remains in place, except instead of using December 31, you will use August 31.
What’s the impact of this new change to my child?
If your child was born between January 1 and April 30, there has been no impact in any of the Age Determination Date changes.
If your child was born between May 1 and August 31, there is no change from the previous age change and implementation.
If your child was born between September 1 and December 31, he or she essentially reverts back to where they were from a League Age standpoint prior to the 2015 season, and, like those born between January 1 and April 30, there is no impact on them.
