December President's Letter


Sunnyvale Little League Membership – Seasons Greetings! Hopefully everyone is knee deep in holiday activities and winding down a fantastic 2018. As the year comes to a close, the Sunnyvale Little League (SVLL) Board of Directors are hard at work preparing for the 2019 Spring Season. As those preparations are in full swing, there are a few notes I wanted to pass on to all of you.


Registration is Open

We officially opened registration for the 2019 Spring Season in early November. We are offering an early bird discount if you register by December 17th. Save a little cash by registering before that deadline. We are also planning on hosting a pre-season clinic for Majors and Minors level players in early January, but players must be registered in order to participate. All registration is handled online. You can find those details here:

Tis the Season of Giving

While our league finances are strong, we rely on registration fees, and various fundraising activities in order to cover the extensive costs required to run a baseball league. We are non-profit organization who relies on corporate and personal donations. Corporate sponsorship allows us to promote them through several marketing opportunities like our website, on field banners and our yearbook. If you know of a company that may be interested in sponsoring the league, please have them visit our website at:

Or have them contact our Fundraising Director, Nicole Ayalon at fundraising@sunnyvalelittleleague.com

If your company offers funds matching on all employee donations, we are registered with Benevity (https://www.benevity.com). For more information, please refer to the Direct Donations & Corporate Matching section of our Sponsorship page here:

Coaching & Umpiring is the Gift that Keeps on Giving
SVLL is entirely run through parent volunteers. We are actively in the process of identifying adult coaches and umpires for the upcoming season. You can’t get any closer to the action, so give it a try. If you might be interested in trying out one of these roles this season, please reach out to our Player Agents or Umpire in Chief. You can email them directly at: playeragent@sunnyvalelittleleague.com or chiefumpire@sunnyvalelittleleague.com respectively.


We Need More Elves

The Board of Directors is in dire need of a new Treasurer and Secretary. These roles are currently being covered by sitting board members who are frankly stretched too thin. That means that we are not focusing the attention required to some vital areas of the league.

We are also in need of some pro bono work related to two important projects. We are in need of a CPA who can help us file our tax return, and also an electrician who can help install new scoreboards that we plan to implement at Serra Park.

If you might be interested in filling one of these critical roles, or would like more information, please email me at president@sunnyvalelittleleague.com

With the new year less than a month away, we have a couple of events scheduled for January. That means the season starts now. Be sure to get registered so that we can see you out on the ball field for those events. Until then, here’s hoping you have time to relax and spend some quality time with your family and friends.

See you out on the diamond,

Mike Lee
President
Sunnyvale Little League
