LENAPE VALLEY BOARD MEMBERS BUSY AT WORK
Thanks for visiting our website. Although it's cold out and there's no baseball on the field, there are plenty of things occurring in the background:
Rick Perlmutter, our Sponsorship Director, is actively pursuing corporate support and business community involvement with a new Sponsorship form for next Spring's baseball. If you know a business owner that has an active Community Support program, please get them in touch with Rick. His email address is:
We are trying to update baseball photos on the website. If you are extremely proud of your handiwork, and want to share it with the local baseball community, please send me a brief e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll start some dialogue and get some new photos on this website.
Teenage Umpires will have a larger presence in LV baseball next Spring. If your teen is interested in continuing their umpire skills, or they want to try it out to see if they like it, LV will be holding free umpire skills clinics over the winter to develop our next wave of Junior Umpires. The per-game pay is a plus!
Welcome to Lenape Valley Baseball and thanks for visiting our web site!
I would like to introduce myself as President of Lenape Valley Baseball. In serving this organization, I would like to promote the following goals and objectives:
Increase the general registration and membership;
Provide extensive additional training for both players and coaches;
Promote the sense of community and volunteerism among the parents and teenagers in the Lenape Valley area;
Provide responsible fiscal goals and expenses in line with reasonable improvements to our facilities and equipment;
Provide greater transparency in the selection and composition of Travel Team managers and players.
You might have heard some of these sayings at social gatherings:
"I like little league, but it's way too political"
"The fees to play baseball are outrageous!"
"Buster was the best player at tryouts, but he didn't get picked because of some closed-door negotiations between so and so and that other guy. It's so unfair"
This is a small sample of the kind of talk that ends community trust and the enjoyable volunteer experiences for parents, and it is a primary goal of my time here to reduce and hopefully eliminate these types of feelings and morale-busters. For myself and my family, little league has been an enriching and fulfilling time, where we are developing friendships with like minded community parents,and we learn a lot about our kids' friends and their peers. So my opinion is that for our youngsters, the little league experience is important and essential for developing friendships, trust, competitive spirit, a sense of teamwork and cooperation. Please consider that your role as a parent can be multiplied several times over by lending your time to the league in a volunteer format, and your suggestions on how to enhance the parents and players experience will benefit not only your kids, but those also of your kid’s friends and their parents alike.
Knowing all this, keep in mind that I am always available to discuss your personal goals for your family's athletes, your general suggestions for the betterment of the league, or any discussion related to providing a better experience for the youth of Chalfont, New Britain, Warrington, and the surrounding areas. Thank you for your time,
President Lenape Valley Baseball
