President's Letter to Richmond Little League Members
Dear Richmond Little League Families and Volunteers,
First, I would like to take an opportunity to thank all of the volunteers, players, umpires, and members. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching the children learn and play the diamond sports and look forward to an even better year in 2014. As a league, we saw success on many levels. For the first time since I have been involved in the league (this will be my seventh season) not just one but both of our Minor and Major's divisions needed two games to complete the year end tournament. I believe that this speaks volumes about the parity and fairness we have in the divisions. I was also very pleased watching the younger kids and give much praise to the coaches and managers of the Kid, Coach and T-Ball divisions. The games I saw were well organized with the kids having fun and learning in a safe environment. Each year at the end of the season, the League assembles All Star teams which represent Richmond in local tournaments. This year at the 90' level Richmond Little League won both the Junior and Senior District 8 tournaments. Both teams then participated in the state tournament. You, as a community, should be commended on the young men that you have sent to represent us. Win or lose, they held themselves above reproach, displaying good sportsmanship and respect for the game. In 2013-2014, I hope that the players of Richmond Little League will continue to prove what a great community Shoreline is to live in.
To help in that matter, Richmond Little League held its General Assembly meeting on Tuesday, October 29, 2013 at the Shoreline Conference Center. The board recommended and elected to keep the registration fees the same as last year. If you would like to review the registration fees they can be found on the Richmond Little League website (http://www.richmondlittleleague.com) under registration tab.
As many of you know our organization is a volunteer organization. The more parents involved the better the experience for all of the players. If you would like to learn more about how your particular talents may be helpful please attend this or future meetings to learn about the different opportunities available. This year we are fortunate that the majority of board members are returning but this may not be the case in the future. Now would be a good time to start recruiting new board members so that they may be taught the different positions as veteran members transition out of the League. If you're interested in volunteering to help out your league, please contact me via email at RLLPresident@richmondlittleleague.com.
Thank you for all your support,
John Lynch, President
Richmond Little League
