I would like to take a moment and thank the players, umpires, parents, grandparents and the volunteers for your continued support of Oakville Little League in 2017. I hope that every player had a positive experience during the season. 

The Board has already begun preparation for the 2018 season and before you know it, we will be celebrating Opening Day 2018. As some of you may have experienced, the league grew exponentially in 2017 and as a result there were a number of long waiting lists and some disappointments as we approached the start of the season. My strong recommendation for the 2018 season would be to register early. You can also save significant dollars by registering prior to October 30th.

 I want to thank all of you for your feedback throughout the season and encourage everyone to send us your feedback so we can deliver the best program for our players.

 We are an organization that is run purely by volunteers who want to help make the Little League experience a positive one. Without volunteers, we would not have the program that your children have experienced and will continue to experience for years to come.

 I challenge the parents in the league to find a way to make a difference for your child by stepping up and volunteering just a bit of your time. It could be as simple as raking a field during Championship Day, taking on a simple role that requires very little time throughout the season or off-season. It’s up to you…..

 Have a great winter season and watch our website as we countdown to Opening Day 2018.

All the Best,

John Sweeney

President
