All Game Schedules Now Available

By SVLL 02/22/2018, 7:45pm PST

All game schedules are now final and have been uploaded to the calendar. An easy way to see them is to select Majors, AAA, AA, A, or T-ball from the Teams menu above, and then click on "VIEW ALL" under the one-week calendar.

We added this question and answer to our FAQ:

How do I turn off "Don't forget your upcoming events!" emails?
SportsEngine (who makes the software that runs our website) has added a new feature that sends notification emails for team practices and games. Unfortunately they have not (yet) given us the ability to turn them off by team or for all parents. Each parent or team manager must do this individually.

Update: SportsEngine has created a video explaining how to turn the notification emails off: share.vidyard.com/watch/wfUAwVevFX9ezkEqk4M9Z9

If this is not clear, contact SportsEngine for instructions on turning these emails off is via online chat. Go to their Contact Us page (https://help.sportsengine.com/customer/portal/emails/new) and click the START LIVE CHAT button.

As soon as anything changes we will post an update.

Scotts Valley Little League

The Scotts Valley Little League has been organizing Little League baseball teams in Scotts Valley, California for 55 years. See our Frequently Asked Questions page, our Information for Parents page, and the other information pages.

We're always eager to help new volunteers learn to help us. See our Contact Us page.

We are part of the CA District 39 Little League.

Are approved bats changing in 2018?

Yes. Please note that as of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard will be implemented. Little League-approved baseball bats that are approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity starting on January 1, 2018. See LittleLeague.org/batinfo and the EQUIPMENT tab on our FAQ page for details and more information.

Do I need to buy a new bat?

As noted above, Little League-approved baseball bats that are approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity starting on January 1, 2018. But you may not need to buy a new bat. SVLL will provide at least one new USABat for each team at each level. And we are considering requiring T-ball players use league-provided bats. (Stay tuned for an announcement when/if that becomes official.)

But since there is a high demand for new bats which meet the USA Baseball Bat standard, if you do want to purchase a new bat it may be best not to wait.

2017 Postseason Congratulations

The SVLL 9-10 All-Stars beat Aptos 6-4 on July 1 to win the District 39 championship! They came from behind (down 4-2) in the sixth inning with a two-out rally to tie the game and then won the game in the seventh with a dramatic walk-off home run.

New Age Determination Date
