Parents will read, understand and sign this form prior to their child/children participating in our league. Any parent guilty of improper conduct at any game or practice will be asked to leave the sports facility and be suspended from the following game. Repeat violations may cause a multiple game suspension, or the season forfeiture of the privilege of attending all games.

The essential elements of character-building and ethics in sports are embodied in the concept of sportsmanship and six core principles. The highest potential of sports is achieved when competition reflects these “six pillars of character.”

  • Trustworthiness;
  • Respect;
  • Responsibility;
  • Fairness;
  • Caring; and
  • Good Citizenship.

I THEREFORE AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING:

  1. I will not force my child to participate in sports.
  2. I will remember that children participate to have fun and that the game is for youth, not adults.
  3. I will inform the coach of any physical disability or ailment that may affect the safety of my child or the safety of others.
  4. I will learn the rules of the game and the policies of the league.
  5. I (and my guests) will be a positive role model for my child and encourage sportsmanship by showing respect and courtesy, and by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, officials and spectators at every game, practice or other sporting event.
  6. I (and my guests) will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, player, or parent such as booing, taunting; refusing to shake hands; or using profane language or gestures.
  7. I will not encourage any behaviors or practices that would endanger the health and well being of the athletes.
  8. I will teach my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.
  9. I will demand that my child treat other players, coaches, officials and spectators with respect regardless of race, creed, color, sex or ability.
  10. I will teach my child that doing one’s best is more important than winning, so that my child will never feel defeated by the outcome of a game or his/her performance.
  11. I will praise my child for competing fairly and trying hard, and make my child feel like a winner every time.
  12. I will never ridicule or yell at my child or other participants for making a mistake or losing a competition.
  13. I will emphasize skill development and practices and how they benefit my child over winning. I will also de-emphasize games and competition in the lower age groups.
  14. I will promote the emotional and physical well being of the athletes ahead of any personal desire I may have for my child to win.
  15. I will respect the officials and their authority during games and will never question, discuss, or confront coaches at the game field, and will take time to speak with coaches at an agreed upon time and place.
  16. I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free from drugs, tobacco, and alcohol and I will refrain from their use at all sports events.
  17. I will refrain from coaching my child or other players during games and practices, unless I am one of the official coaches of the team.

2021 Spring Information

Written by

We are preparing for an another exciting season at Chaires!  Spring Registration will open on December 14th and close January 10th so mark your calendars now. Be sure to register early (and tell your friends)!

The 2021 Spring Schedule has been released and can be accessed here. Please keep in mind, dates are subject to change but will be communicated.

The Little League Age Chart should be utilized when determining which division your child will play. This Little League standard is in place to ensure all players worldwide are on the same age level throughout the season.

Information for each of the divisions can be found under the Information Tab above or by clicking the link below:

The League Boundary Map will help determine whether or not your child is within the CCLL boundaries and is eligible to play at Chaires.

The CCLL Local League Rules provides answers to many questions broken down by divisions. 

Managers will be notified by January 15th if they have been assigned a team.  If you were not selected as a manager, we thank you for volunteering and hope you will consider assisting on your child's team as an assistant or team parent. 

Evaluations:
https://www.chairesll.com/index.php/information/2021-spring/2020-spring-schedule

The Machine Pitch, Minors and Majors draft will be held on January 27th.  Team rosters will be entered into the Sports Signup Play System that night or the next day. You will be notified through the SPORTS SIGNUP PLAY app.  If you haven't downloaded the app please do so.  Communication from the league and your coaches will be sent through the app.  Please be sure and allow text messages if that is your primary mode of communication.

Managers will contact their team regarding pants, sock, and belt colors needed. Keep an eye out for the Dick's Sporting Goods Discount Day.

Practices will begin the week of Feb 1st.  There will be two practices a week for MP, Minors, and Majors until the season starts on March 1st when you will practice one day a week, typically on the weekend.  We will begin work on schedule immediately after teams have been selected.  This can be a very challenging process so be patient with us.  We do our best to be fair on days of the week, fields, etc.  We don't know for sure yet, but expect to have to travel once to an opposing league's park and possibly to play a game or two at Miccosukee field.

If you would like to sponsor a team we are always looking for sponsor names to go on jerseys.  You can pay directly online or bring a check to evaluations.

Spring 2020 Season Canceled

Written by

It is with great sadness that I now have to report that the 2020 Chaires-Capitola Little League Spring season has officially been canceled. Despite the Governor’s order to allow youth sports, the Leon County Commissioners have decided to stay with their original plan in Phase 2, which is not to open county parks to youth sports. Not knowing when the Governor will begin the Phase 3 reopening of Florida, the Chaires-Capitola Little League Board has decided to move forward with canceling the Spring season. We appreciate your patience in this process. I was certainly wrong. I thought we would play again and that our group of 12 year olds (including my son) had not played their last Little League game.  Due to the upfront costs of uniforms, equipment, and draft and evaluation materials, the Board has decided to offer a 20% refund of your registration.  However, we are asking that you please consider donating this refund amount to the League to use for future seasons and other improvements to the park.  If you require a refund, please contact us directly at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  We can credit your account for the following season or give a credit or check refund. Those registered in the Seniors division will be able to play for free in the Fall because they are able to use the same uniforms.  We will credit all of the Seniors accounts. Once again, we are deeply sorry that we are not able to get back on the fields to complete the Spring season.  We were all really looking forward to it.  Be on the lookout for registration information for the Fall season starting in August. 

Let us know if you have any questions.

 

Thanks,

 

Michele Garber, President
Chaires-Capitola Little League

Pitch Count

Written by

In any Little League Baseball game, the eligibility of a player to pitch is determined by a tiered pitch count which is directly related to the number of pitches thrown in a game. This pitch count also determines the number of days a player needs to rest before he or she can pitch again in a Little League game. 

Little League Baseball, Inc., has always imposed limits on how much a pitcher may pitch. The limits were originally designed to encourage teams to develop additional pitchers, but since 2007, the baseball pitching limits have been made more stringent in an effort to protect hurlers’ arms. As a result, the pitching regulations for baseball and softball differ significantly. Little League Baseball provides valuable information as it pertains to Pitching Rules and Guidelines.

Below is a summary of the current pitch count rules, as they apply to players in CCLL.

 

AGE DAILY MAX (PITCHES) REQUIRED REST (PITCHES)
  0 Days 1 Day 2 Days 3 Days 4 Days
7-8 50 1-20 21-35 36-50 N/A N/A
9-10 75 1-20 21-35 36-50 51-65 66+
11-12 85 1-20 21-35 36-50 51-65 66+
13-14 95 1-20 21-35 36-50 51-65 66+
15-16 95 1-30 31-45 46-60 61-75 76+
17-18 105 1-30 31-45 46-60 61-75 76+
