Play ball! This spring we will be offering more games and increased competition for our baseball and softball players. The baseball committee along with the Park and Rec Board has thoroughly researched all league options and the last several years of season play. After completing this study, all have voted to rejoin the local Little League District. This will allow for a variety of game opportunities both on island and in the Skagit area. Game schedules will be set by Little League with game play from April 1st – June 3rd. REGISTRATION DEADLINE is FEBRUARY 27TH for all baseball and softball players ages 7 – 14 years of age and pre-registration is required. This year will kick off with a field day for player assessment on March 5th. Practices will begin the week of March 13th.

T-Ball begins the week of April 24th for ages 5 – 7 and will continue with on-island scrimmages. Registration deadline for T-Ball is April 3rd.

Your early registration is greatly appreciated and will help us ensure uniforms and equipment are purchased and on hand for the start of the season. No registration will be accepted after February 27th. Scholarships and payment plans are available. To register stop into our office located in the northwest corner of the Funhouse or visit our website at and click on the big green registration button.

We are looking for volunteers to help with team coordination, field prep, officiating, and coaching. Through participation in these programs, our island youth further develop strength in physical, social, emotional, and psychological health while fostering meaningful connections with peers and adults; building a stronger community together.

If you would like to help, please contact Kim Ihlenfeldt at, or 376-7275 (PARK)
