Elmwood Little League

Notice about the 2020 Season

Dear Elmwood Little League parents, volunteers and sponsors,

We hope you and your family have been well through this very difficult and unexpected period.

The 2020 spring season has been canceled, but we are still hopeful that we can run some clinics, some scrimmage games or maybe even a shortened exhibition season at some point this summer or this fall. These activities, if we are able to do them, will be free to any Providence residents who wish to play.

If you paid to register your player for the 2020 season, please fill out this form to request a refund, roll over your fee to next season, or make a donation to the league.

In order to make sure you hear about our reopening plans, we need to know your current and most up to date contact information. Please complete the form directly below on this page.

We value our Elmwood Community and miss you very much. We have not given up hope that we will all be back on the field this year, but we must make sure that we are following safety guidelines so our community stays healthy. We are in touch with Little League International and Governor Raimondo’s office. We will not open until the time is right!

Best,

Joe Wojtanowski

Elmwood Little League President

What to expect from Elmwood Little League

Can I sign up online like I did last year?

No. Last year Dick's provided a free online registration system to Little Leagues, and we tried it out. This winter Dick's sold the program, and the new company increased the cost. Based on feedback from parents and volunteers, we decided the continuing online registration was not worth the price at this time. Please attend an in person registration session to ensure your child's spot on a team!

How long does the season last?

The season begins with practices in early April and finishes mid-June, before the end of school.

How often do teams play and practice?

It depends on the player age and division. For tee-ball and instructional divisions, one practice during the week and a game Saturday morning. For older divisions, usually two or three days a week, divided between practices and games. Occasionally teams may have more games during a week to make up rainouts or work around scheduling problems.

Where are games and at what time?

Tee-ball and instructional games are at J.T. Owens Field off Niantic Avenue in Providence on Saturday morning.

Most baseball and softball games for older divisions are in the evening at J.T. Owens field. Senior baseball plays at Ardoene Field off Narragansett Avenue. The major division baseball field and the softball field have lights for when games extend into the late evening. Most divisions for older players have some road games against nearby teams from outside Elmwood Little League.

Do you need coaches?

We can always use coaches across the age divisions, from more experienced head coaches to bench parents who help in the dugout during games. Meet us at registration or in touch using the contact info below.

All volunteers are screened by an annual background check as required by Little League International.
