Slow response to the call for nominations means that NSWJBL will not be holding any trials in the immediate future. We will continue to take names up until the end of the month and those players will have preference for placement in teams. We endorses the commitment of players to their various LL teams but unfortunately we have an end of the month deadline for team nominations

We are committed to helping as many children as possible to have these experiences. At this stage we can only be certain of nominating one team to a Championship tournament and one team to the Iwate tournament. This situation could change if we get more nominations before the end of the month.

I will give you the following update on the situation with nominations for the various tours on offer this year.

Rather than listing the eligibility dates, for simplicity I will refer to the tours by the names you are more familiar with. The age groups are the same although they are not actually LL tournaments.

 

LITTLE LEAGUE - We do have sufficient names but will continue taking names up until the end of the month when we have to nominate teams. We will not however conduct trials until April because we recognise that the primary commitment of these players at the moment is to the Association LL teams

 

MINOR LITTLE LEAGUE - U12 -13 to Iwate- There is about half a team but we have more time to find players for this team. If does not have an end of the month deadline although nominations before the end of the month will have preference.. Needs more pitchers at this stage.

 

JUNIOR LITTLE LEAGUE - We only have half a team at this stage. Many of these can be accommodated in the Iwate team which does still require players.Also needs more pitchers.

 

SENIOR LITTLE LEAGUE - While nine players have expressed an interest, they have not all submitted nomination forms. If we abandon the Junior LL team some of those could go to Senior LL but first we would need more solid nominations - especially pitchers.

 

See forms in the notice board of the library.

news Draw Week 22-23 February 19-02-19 at 20:04
Tue 19-Feb-2019 20:04

There have been significant changes to the draw issued this morning

Certainly was not expecting Castle Hill Hay League to be playing a wash out replay tonight. If they win, and they should, they become Minor Premiers and Rouse Hill will play the elimination final against Winston Hills @ Sutton at 10:30am. Should Castle Hill lose they play Winston Hills at Sutton

The revised draw is in the library. Hopefully I have highlighted all the changes in bold

Bats will be a big issue this weekend. Looking at LL trials there are numerous illegal bats still in use. The Easton XL1 is a composite bat. Following is the Association's Bat Rules. 

Composite bats, connexion bats remain banned. USA branded bats are single alloy only, USA Bats composite bats remain 'banned'. What may be legal in LL is not necessarily legal in Hills

news Minor LL 19-02-19 at  8:57
Tue 19-Feb-2019 8:57

The first trial for Hills LL is next Sunday 24th February at Castle Glen Reserve commencing at 1pm sharp.

 

Players intending to trial need to pre register by contacting John Yard (johnyardhere@yahoo.com.au) by Thursday 21st February . Information required is DOB, Club played for and two preferred playing positions

 

State Championship dates are  Sunday April 21st- Wednesday April 24th @ Flat Rock Reserve and Bicentennial Reserve, Naremburn


There is no National Championship in Minor LL


To be eligible, players:

 

(i) Players must be playing in Hills' Douglass, Leonard or Bergan Leagues and have played a minimum of 60% of the games in those Conferences.

 

(ii) Age eligibility is a DOB between 1st September, 2007 and 31st August, 2010.

(ii) Must not have changed Clubs since Season 2017/18, without changing Residential Address. Those players who have formal recognition of 'Friendship status' are exempt of that Rule. However, I am aware of none in this age group.

(iii) Players who have changed Associations since 2016/17 Season, without changing Residential address, will be ineligible for selection.

Unlike previous years will only guarantee entering one team, given the high number of 'two year' players being selected in the two Hills LL teams. This has severely weakened the Pitching and Catching depth to enabling entering two teams into Tournament play.
