Winter Skills Registration is Now Open!

Please click the button on the left side of the page to register, clinic starts in January!

Canton Little League is pleased to offer a 10-week, 1½ hour per week, instructional clinic for the low cost of just $65 for the entire 10 week program!

We encourage all of our young athletes, between the ages of 6 and 12, to take advantage of this tremendous opportunity to get ready for the spring season.

The 9-12 year old clinics will provide the skills necessary to compete at a higher level, with more confidence and a better understanding of the game.

The 6-8 year old clinics will develop the fundamental skills of gripping and throwing the baseball as well as proper fielding and hitting mechanics.  (Parent involvement promotes proper technique and is strongly encouraged, particularly at this age level).

This program will be held Sunday afternoons at TJO Sports, 5 Carver Circle beginning Sunday, January 11th 2015 through Sunday, March 29th 2015 (no clinics on Feb. 1st and Feb. 15th).

The 6-8 year old clinic will run from 4-5:30 pm, the 9-12 year old group will run from 5:30-7:00 pm.

The clinics are not only designed to focus on the fundamentals of hitting, fielding, throwing and running but the higher age levels will also work on:

Pitchers: How to present themselves on the mound and adjust to the varying mechanics of pitching vs. throwing.

Fielders: Pre-pitch preparation: "If I get the ball, what do I do with it."

Hitters: On deck batter - timing the pitcher, observing the pitcher to understand his tendency’s and what you may face at-bat.  Hitting off-speed pitches and the outside fastball.

Base Running: Proper positioning, how to read a ball hit in the dirt, picking up base coaches on base paths and proper base-running techniques.

Payments by Credit card only please. Unpaid registrations will be deleted. Canton residents only.

New Age Determination

New Age Determination Date Ensures that No Player Will Lose a Year of Participation in the Little League® Majors Division
 

FOR BASEBALL DIVISIONS ONLY

In April, 2014 the International Congress approved the new league age determination amendment for Little League Baseball®. To implement the new amendment, it was decided to include a three-year waiting period to execute the change, starting in 2018. Questions from the field were raised about the impact the change would have on players that were currently league age 8 under the traditional system. Using feedback from Little League® parents through our District Administrators, the Little League International Board of Directors adjusted the April-approved implementation strategy in order to modify the impact on all of our minor and major division players. The adjustment also allows for an easier transition for players in the early years of Little League participation.

As a result of this recent adjustment to the implementation strategy, effective immediately, any player born on or after January 1, 2006 who will turn the ages of 4-9 during the 2015 calendar year will be eligible to participate in a local Little League program and will use the new age determination date of December 31 for the reminder of their Little League Baseball career. Players will still be assigned to a division based on local league divisional structure.

As stated, with this implementation strategy adjustment the impact on our players will be reduced, with the exception of a marginal impact on players currently participating in the very early stages of their Little League career. Furthermore, our continued focus on fun, fitness and fundamentals at the Tee Ball Division will assist local leagues as they look to provide a smooth transition to the Coach/Machine Pitch divisions of play while still developing a passion for the game as well as focusing on skill development.

This change ensures that no player will lose a year of participation in the Little League Majors Division that culminates with the annual Little League Baseball World Series in South Williamsport, Pa.
