Woodstock Little League offers the opportunity for all children ages 4 through 16 to play baseball, learn about sportsmanship and fair play and build new friendships. We are excited about the quality of volunteers we have each year who share a common purpose to provide a positive experience for all those who just want to play baseball.

Thompson Little League will be hosting a Little League Umpiring Clinic from 9:00 to 10:30 AM on Saturday March 28th at Tourtellotte High School in Thompson. The clinic will be conducted by ECBU Umpire Ray Foucher with help from Brian Hanlon and Thompson LL UIC, Tom Angelo.
The clinic will cover basic Little League umpiring skills and will cater to Junior Umpires as well as team coaches who might be asked to step up and officiate a couple of games this season. The clinic is free of charge, however, we will have the District 11&12 Umpire Manual available for $10 per copy. This manual is a 110 page all inclusive guide we made up this year and it is a must for new and junior umpires.
We encourage anyone that may be asked to do any umpiring to attend. Please direct any questions to Woodstock Little League Umpire-In-Chief Keith Barnes at firstname.lastname@example.org or 860-377-0956
Woodstock Little League registration for the 2015 Spring season is now open. Please read the information below for more information and registration details. Registrations can be submitted online at http://www.woodstockctlittleleague.org/.
Please register your player(s) in the appropriate division according to their date of birth. This will not necessarily be the division that your player(s) participates in during the 2015 Spring Playing Season. Final player placement will be determined by the WLL Board of Directors based upon the following: (1) WLL Safety Evaluations, (2) Little League Softball and Baseball Age Determination Charts, (3) WLL bylaws for Player Tryouts and Evaluation Scores (Rule 7) and (4) WLL bylaws for Age Guidelines and Division/Team Roster Selection (Rule 8). WLL bylaws can be found under the "WLL Documents" tab on this website. Any questions can be directed to Mike Sampson at email@example.com.
Registration through March 14, 2015 will be $75 per player plus participation in the league fundraiser.
Registrations received March 15, 2015 or later will include a $25 late fee.
Evaluations/tryouts will be Saturday, March 7, 2015 @ Woodstock Academy Field House. Please arrive 15 minutes early to register, players should wear sneakers not cleats. Players looking to play in a new division for the 2015 spring season should attend this evaluation/tryout. In most cases, players will not be allowed to move up if they have not attended at least one evaluation/tryout. If your player attended the evaluation/tryout held last October, they are not required to attend on March 7th, although WLL encourages attending both. Any questions should be directed to WLL Player Agents Adam Leveille (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Brian Murphy (email@example.com).
