The Mission of Coginchaug Little League

Little League Baseball, Inc. is a non-profit organization whose mission is to "promote, develop, supervise, and voluntarily assist in all lawful ways, the interest of those who will participate in Little League Baseball and Softball."

Through proper guidance and exemplary leadership, the Little League program assists children in developing the qualities of citizenship, discipline, teamwork and physical well-being.  By espousing the virtues of character, courage, and loyalty, the Little League Baseball and Softball program is designed to develop superior citizens rather than superior athletes.

Coginchaug Little League board meetings normally are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm at the Middlefield Community Center (Oct-Mar) and at the Atwell Field PA Booth (Apr-Sept) and are open to the public. 

We welcome new board members and hope to see you there!

Field Prep Day

Hello Coginchaug Little League Families,

 

We are getting closer to baseball and softball season and before you know it, teams will be selected and practices will begin. In order for us to get the fields up and running, we are going to have a  league wide Field Prep Day on Saturday, March 30th with a rain date of Saturday, April 6th. Parents, players and siblings are all welcome to help as there are a variety of tasks to be completed, both big and small. It is also a good opportunity for any students needing to complete Community Service Hours for school. 

 

The schedule is currently set up as follows:

Saturday, March 30th  9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. or so at Allyn Brook Park fields in Durham 

* If weather is an issue, we will send out a notification email in advance. 

Please consider helping out, even if only for an hour. It is a great way to meet new people, help the little league out and help give the kids great fields to play on. Please e-mail Rick Mach, Fields Director, at   if you are able to help.

 

Thank you.

Board of Directors

Boys Minors Tryouts

Tryouts for Boys Minors will be held on Sunday March 24 at Atwell Field in Durham.

Tryouts are for placement in the Minors A, AA, and AAA divisions.

Players registered for Minors, Farm (A), and T-Ball players age 6 are eligible to tryout. 6 year olds without prior T-Ball experience are encouraged to tryout if they are interested in playing A-Ball.

Clinics and warmups start at 2pm, with tryouts starting at 3pm. 

Rain date is Saturday March 30th.

As AAA is travel, players at this level must be able to travel for at least 5 away games (Haddam, Killingworth, and Clinton). Please let the Director know if you are unable to make this commitment.

We anticipate that the concession stand will be open for limited food and drink.

Also, we still need coaches.  Please contact Howie Weissberg at if interested.
 

Here is a breakdown of the divisions:

MINORS (A, AA and AAA BALL)

The Minor League is an instructional, yet competitive program that incorporates a "recreation team" philosophy where coaches are encouraged to rotate players through various positions. focused on preparing players to move to the Major League 

 

A-BALL (formerly FARM) - Open to all players 6 - 9 years old. 6 year olds will be accepted with one year of T-Ball. At this level, the baseball and softball programs are split. 

The primary goal of the A-BALL Division is continued teaching of baseball/softball fundamentals and developing your child's baseball/softball skills in an instructional environment. A-BALL will utilize the Little League University Coach Pitch Manual to guidedevelopment. Players will split their time between “instructional” practices where they will learn the game through clinics and drills, and slightly competitive, controlled games with special playing rules in place to move the game, make it fun and promote the development of their skills. The format of the farm program is coach / machine pitch, although basic pitching skills will be introduced at this level.

Practices: Usually 1-2 per week beginning in April

Games: 10-12 total games, usually one per week mid-April through early June

 

AA-BALL  Open to players 7 - 10 years old. 7 - 8 year olds will be placed by tryout or previous experience. 10 year olds without experience may be placed in AA Ball. 

The primary goal of the AA-BALL Division is continued teaching of baseball/softball fundamentals and developing your child's baseball/softball skills in an instructional / competitive environment. Pitching is both coach/machine and player pitch. Focus on skills development, and also strategy and pitching. Stealing is not permitted. Little League University Coach Pitch Manual will be used to guide development. Games will be within the division only, and there will be no travel. 

Practices: Usually 1-2 per week beginning in April

Games: 10-12 total games, usually one per week from the end of April through early June

 

AAA - Open to players 8 - 11. 8 - 9 year olds will be placed by tryout or previous experience.

Stealing is permitted. 10 and 11 year olds will be automatically placed in AAA if they are not selected for Majors. Games will be played within the league and also with outside leagues which will require travel, typically within District.

Minors Softball Pitching Clinics

Dear Coginchaug Little League Softball families:

We are eager to start the season and look forward to working with the girls this year.  As a board, we have met, and discussed that pitching is a very important aspect of the game at every level.  In order to get started in pitching, it helps to have an experienced coach to work with girls to set best practices with form and fluid motion.  This year, we are offering a FREE clinic to minors level players that have little to no experience pitching but have a serious interest.  

We have set up clinics with a seasoned college pitcher to help the girls jump start their experience.  

These clinics will begin on Wednesday March 27th from 5:30pm to 6:15pm.  They will run for 5 consecutive Wednesdays ending on 4/24.  After these clinics, the coaches will reach out to see which girls continue to have interest, and decisions will be made on the possibility of continuing lessons during and outside of regular team practices.  

If you have any questions and are interested in signing up for these pitching clinics please reach out to Chris Costa @   or calling 860-449-4125.  

There will be a limited numbers of spots for this opportunity, so please reach out as soon as possible, as we expect these spots to fill quickly.
