A Rockland County Senior League Chartered, regular season program for girls ages 13 to 16. The goal of the league is to have between 4 and 8 teams whereby the registrants are drafted to provide an equal distribution of talent regardless of age.
The League is under the auspices of Little League Baseball and is independently chartered. It is headed by the D18 NY District Administrator. The League is self- sufficient.
The teams will be drafted based on the approved “pool play” format and all individual players must reside within NY 18. The goal will be to have a minimum of 12 players on each team, thus 96 players. An exception can be made for a chartered little league team outside NY 18 with the approval of little League International.
The goal will be to play a 12 game regular season for each team. GAMES WILL BEGIN JUNE 13TH AND BE PLAYED DURING THE WEEK, UNDER LIGHTS, WITHOUT CONFLICT WITH WEEKEND TRAVEL TEAMS/SCHOOL TEAMS OR THE JUNIOR LEAGUE SOFTBALL PROGRAM.
Senior League: Ages 13 to 16- Born Between January 1, 2000 and December 31, 2003. Big League: Ages 16 to 18- Born Between Jan. 1 1997 and Dec. 31 1999
The home of this program is the Manny Lopez Field, 1 Anthony J. Marina Way (GPS Address), Haverstraw, NY & The Haverstraw Little League Gurnee Ave Complex.
The coaches will be appointed by the Commissioner and approved by the President, with guidance from the administration committee. They would follow strict guideline requirements for little League coaches. We welcome dedicated volunteer coaches from throughout the District.
Since 2011 the concept of District wide competition has been widely accepted. Regular season, tournament play and fall ball, gives girls at an age level and opportunity to play where there would have been no games if this league did not exist.
Dist. 18 NY Tournament Play:
There will be opportunity to participate in National Tournament Play. There will be one team representing NY 18 in the Senior Division. Junior Leage All-Star teams will come from the newly re-formed Junior League.
Thank you for your interest in Little League Softball. We trust we have heightened your interest in this proven AND successful approach in our area to keep girls involved at these age levels. We know that with this type of program, the upper Level Softball programs will continue to grow in Rockland County.
