On behalf of the SRVLL Board of Directors, a hearty THANK YOU to all our SRVLL friends, families, sponsors, and partners. From the wonderful food presented by Big Kahuna, to the SRVLL teen and adult umpires, to sponsors EJ Sports and Shooting Stars Photos, to the fields and grounds crew, to the dozens of volunteers, and especially to the baseball players and their families, you all helped make Opening Day 2015 one of the best yet.
Stay tuned for more photos from the day. If you have any you'd like to share, please send them to .
The SRVLL Board of Directors continues to offer player and parent development options to our member families. We feel very strongly about the importance of youth sports and in helping to shape the culture within youth sports. As such, we have partnered with Danville Little League and Tassajara Valley Little league to offer you a live workshop hosted by the Positive Coaching Alliance, a non-profit organization that seeks to promote fair competition along with life lessons through youth sports.
THE SECOND-GOAL PARENT®:Developing Winners in Life Through Sports draws from the Double-Goal Coach model (winning and life lessons) to help parents focus on the second goal, ensuring their children gain the higher value of youth and high school sports regardless of scoreboard results.

If you are at least league age 13, you are eligible to train and become a San Ramon Valley Little League umpire. Umpiring is a great way to stay involved with our wonderful league, have fun, and earn some $$.

New umpires must complete: (1) the paperwork, (2) rules training, (3) field mechanics clinic and (4) pass the rules test.
Returning umpires must complete: (1) the paperwork and (2) pass the rules test.
Rules training will be each Wednesday evening, 7:00pm to 8:00pm sharp, January 14 through February 4, 2015. All new umpires must attend, and returning umpires should attend so that they will pass the rules test. The rules test will be administered at 7:00pm, at Los Cerros on February 11.
