Grosse Pointe Little League Softball is excited to announce that registration for the 2021 season has officially opened. You can register at the GPLLS website. Registration will close March 12. Late registrations will be put on a waitlist.
There are 5 divisions this season:
*Rookie (2014-2015 birthdates)
*Machine Pitch (2012-2013 birthdates)
*Minor League (2010-2011 birthdates)
*Major League (2008-2009 birthdates)
*Senior League (2004-2007 birthdates)
Registration for Senior League will stay open a month longer and the season will begin about a month later than the rest of the league to avoid overlap with school sports. More information will be forthcoming.
· $95 – Rookie
· $185 – Machine Pitch, Minor and Major League
· $100 – Senior League
There is a $55 discount for a third child registered this season and the fourth child (and more) are free. (If anyone is considering not signing up because of the registration costs, contact the league. Assistance may be available.)
*Evaluations for Minor and Major Leagues ONLY are tentatively set for March 13 and March 20 at Lakeside Baseball. Players from those two leagues only have to attend one evaluation session. More information will be sent out closer to the evaluation dates.
*Practices are scheduled to begin the week of April 3.
*Games are scheduled to begin the week of April 26.
*Opening Day ceremonies will be on May 1.
*Playoffs begin the week of June 7 and last a week.
*Championship games for the Minor and Major Leagues will be held June 12, along with the season-ending picnic and Home Run Derby (rain date is June 13).
Machine Pitch and Rookie leagues will not have playoffs; the Senior League may have playoffs, depending on interest.
Minor and Major Leagues will try to avoid weekend games. All divisions will have more scheduled practices than in prior years. The plan is for younger divisions to play 1-2 games and have 1-2 practices per week. The plan for older divisions is to play 2-3 games and have 1-2 practices per week.
Stay up to date on everything happening in the league by visiting the website and follow us on social media — Grosse Pointe Little League Softball on Facebook; @gpllsoftball on Instagram and @GPLLSoftball on Twitter.
The entire schedule is tentative and subject to conditions as they evolve. We may have to be flexible again, but will try to make it as close to a normal season as possible.
We look forward to seeing everyone at the diamond this season!
