As everyone knows, youth sports are much different today than it was when we were growing up.In Anderson Township you have many options for baseball and that’s why it has been the mission of Anderson Township Little League to provide the best quality experience available to our community.Our goal is to provide a fun and competitive environment for the approximately 1,000 players who come through our league each year.We are the only baseball option in the area who work diligently to provide balanced, competitive teams throughout our many divisions while at the same time giving players the opportunity to play and learn the game of baseball with their friends.We do not allow managers to build powerhouse teams over the years but happily allow core groups of players to stay together from year to year.ATLL also offers a wide range of options for your players’ ability level from tee ball, coach pitch, half kid pitch – half coach pitch, and multiple levels of full kid pitch from ages 9 through 16.We offer the Aces program for the best of the best at every age and the Kings program for those players looking to take their game to the next level.These enhanced baseball programs are constantly evolving as we try to find the best fit for our players who have chosen to participate.Don’t burn your kid out on baseball by playing 50 to 70 games per year, don’t throw thousands of dollars away to a program that just wants your money to fund their elite athletes, don’t put your player in a position where they’re losing or winning every game by 20 runs, don’t put them on a team where the only goal is to win, where they get screamed at if they make a mistake, where they’ll ride the bench if they’re not good enough.Choose a program where teamwork, player development, and fun are what drive the managers to donate their time.Play Anderson Township Little League and give them the same opportunity for fun, competitive baseball that you had as a kid.
Anderson Township Little League is excited to open registration for the 2019 Aces & Kings program. Tryouts will be held on Sunday June 3rd at Riverside Park Fields #4 & #6 and registration is open now. REGISTER HERE
For 2019, there will be one Aces team for each age group from 8U thru 15U and one Kings team for each age group from 8U thru 13U. The top 11 to 12 kids in each age division will make the Aces team and the next 11 to 12 kids will make the Kings team. If a player does not make the Aces they will be automatically considered for the Kings. These teams are for the best of the best that Anderson Township Little League has to offer. If you feel that your son or daughter fits this mold, they are excited about baseball, they want to play at a higher level, and they are driven to become a better player, then the Aces & Kings may be for them. ATLL’s core focus is still on our regular season teams for everyone else and we will continue to strive to make it the best baseball league in southwest Ohio.
The Aces program will play an independent schedule of approximately 35 games against other D9 Little League advanced teams as well as Southwest Ohio League select teams. The Aces will start practice in January and play through June. The cost of the Aces program is approximately $500 for the season (slightly more expensive for 13U up due to additional umpire and tournament fees).
NEW FOR 2019, the Kings program will also play an independent schedule of approximately 35 games against other D9 Little League advanced teams as well as Southwest Ohio League select teams.
