Please join us at our yearly celebration at the start of the season for the parade of teams, to welcome our youngest players and to celebrate our graduating 12 year olds. (A special note for 12 year olds... stop by the Olympic Photo Tent for your official photo for the newspaper as soon as you arrive to the field.)
Parents and players are asked to arrive at Rotary Park between 9:00 to 9:15AM. Players will gather on Lower Rotary Field at their team banner where their coaches will greet them. Parents of our youngest players are encouraged to escort their children onto the field and they may want to stay with their children during the event.

Registration: Registration continues to be open and we encourage you to sign up now!
Volunteers: Please keep in mind that BILL is an all-volunteer league. When you register your player, don't forget to note volunteer roles for yourself and your spouse, partner or co-parent. This year's board has some very important positions that remain open. We are seeking a Fundraising Coordinator, a Tee Ball Coordinator and a Volunteer Coordinator.
Pass the Word: Is there a family in your neighborhood that's new to Bainbridge? Do you have friends or family that might not be on BILL's mailing list? Please feel free to forward this notice or any other BILL mailings.
Interested in helping out this season?
Wondering what you might want to do?
BILL is an all-volunteer organization that cannot provide Little League programs to our kids without the generous donation of time and effort from each one of us. Can't find the time to be a coach, think about helping out to carpool kids to games or practice every once in a while. Don't think you're up to umpiring, consider bringing snacks and refreshements so that the Team Parent gets a day off. Big or small, there's always something that you can do that will be greatly appreciated by someone.
The list below describes the many ways you can donate time to Little League and, more importantly, to the kids who play. Please take a moment to review the list. During the registration process you will have a chance to indicate your volunteering preference.
Please be generous with your time. Remember...it's about the kids!

Ace Hardware Donates $100 for Hitting Target!
On Saturday April 13, Majors Mariner player Liam Hatakenaka stroked a line-drive home run that nailed the "hit it here" target on the Ace Hardware sign on lower Rotary field. As has been the Ace Hardware policy since 2004, the family of the player that hits the target gets a $100 gift card to the Bainbridge Island Ace Hardware store.
Bainbridge Island Little League thanks Steve and Becky Mikami for their gracious and long term support of our league.
