LOWER CAPE MAY LITTLE LEAGUE

FAQs

1. How are the teams chosen?

In the higher divisions, Majors and Seniors, the teams are selected using an open draft system, where coaches selected their players based on evaluations during tryouts. At these levels players stay on the same teams from year to year.  In the younger divisions, Minors – Coach Pitch – Tee Ball, a blind draft system is used.  In this system, players are randomly assigned to teams, with some adjustments being made for coach’s children and siblings (to get them on the same team).

 

2. Why do parents have to take a turn and work the concession stand?

The foundation of any Little League program is its volunteers and parents.  In order to provide our players the convenience of having food and drinks available at the field during games and practices we need to have parent volunteers working in the concession stand during every game.  The concession stand is also a revenue source for the league.  Without it we would need to increase registration fees.

 

3. Time Limits - when does the game end (curfew, innings, etc)?

Tee Ball: 4 innings or a 1-hour time limit.

Coach Pitch: 4 innings or a 1:15 time limit.

Minors:  5 innings with a 2 hour time limit.

Majors: 6 innings, normally no time limit (can institute a 2-hour time limit if 2 games are played in one night).

Juniors:  7 innings, no time limit.

 

4. How is my registration money used?

Registration revenue is used for a variety of league expenses including uniforms, equipment, field maintenance, league insurance, and utility charges.  A detailed reporting of the league’s income and expenses can be found at our website: www.LCMLL.com

 

5. Why do I need to sell raffle tickets?

The annual raffle ticket sale helps the league keep registration fees low and affordable for families in our community.  By generating over 25% of the league’s annual revenue, the sale of raffle tickets is an important source of income for Lower Cape May Little to cover the cost of field maintenance, insurance, and equipment.  The board of the league has always felt that the majority of families in our league would prefer to sell raffle tickets to help defray these costs than to pay an increased registration cost.  Without the funds generated by the annual raffle the price of registration would have to be greatly increased.  Anyone who does not want to sell raffle tickets can opt to do the buyout.  A detailed reporting of the league’s income and expenses can be found at our website:
