January 15th, 2011 - Season reaches the sharp pointy bit

After the action switched to Corbin for Round 7 today, the ladder for both leagues still looks remarkably similar to the way it did last weekend. The fate of all teams over the last three games remains in their own hands, with pitching, hitting and field defense all playing a part in winning games so far.

January 4th, 2011 - Management Staff announced

The Managers (ie: "Head Coaches" in our lingo) for all nine teams have been announced.

This year, we're not publishing individual contact details for each one, unlike past seasons. For your team, your own manager will be in touch, and will probably give you his/her own private contact details, but we've found it's not efficient to publish this information on the Web for all teams.

December 22nd, 2010 - Important Announcement

The response to the Holiday Competition has been very good. Too good, in fact. Unfortunately we will not be able to accommodate all the players that have nominated.

Sadly, we can't please everyone. We wanted 88 players and have received in excess of 110 nominations. so there has to be some way of reconciling this.

Even though we have increased the number of teams in Major League to five - and increased the squad size to 12 players rather than 11- there are still not enough spaces available for all the players who have nominated.

The order of selection criteria is - in order :

  • First, Players not registered in Hills in season 2010/11 were eliminated.
  • Second, those who cannot play a minimum of 75% of the scheduled games were eliminated.
  • Third is by age- the 2002 and 2003 DOB are considered too young given the number of older players available.
  • Fourth is in Minor League - players playing liveball in the weekend competitions will have precedence over those in Modball and TeeBall. The latter will have their "turn" next year or the year after.

Those missing out on Major League will be offered a place in Minor League.

This may well prove to be advantageous for some of the 'specialist' position players. They will get opportunities to pitch or catch or to even play in the infield in Minor League - opportunities that they would not get at all playing in Major League, such is the playing depth of that competition.

The increase in squad numbers obviously affects the available playing time for players.

It would be disappointing if anyone were to withdraw after the teams are posted on the Hills LL website this Friday because it would mean that some child had been denied an opportunity to participate and possibly made other arrangements.

Should you wish to withdraw your child's nomination please contact John Yard by return email.


December 1st , 2010 - Launch

The Hills Holiday Season Little League programme is launched. All age-eligible Hills players with email addresses on MyClub are sent invitations.
