Welcome to the Homepage of Layritz Little League Baseball and Softball


Last Call for 2020 Canadians Executive Board Expression of Interest
Layritz Little League has officially been awarded the honour of hosting the 2020 Canadian Little League Championships. This amazing opportunity will showcase Layritz Park, the Municipality of Saanich and the entire Greater Victoria area and will, undoubtedly, be the highlight of the 2020 sporting community calendar.
 
 This tournament will be an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for players, coaches and families of Layritz Little League, as well, the entire community of Greater Victoria. We hope this tournament will find many Layritz players and families, both past and present, looking to join us in giving back to our amazing park and program through volunteer efforts.
 
In preparation; one of the key first tasks is to create the Executive for the 2020 Tournament Committee. This Executive Committee will direct and lead the entire efforts of the Layritz based Tournament Committee. The following positions will comprise the 2020 Executive Committee: 
  • Tournament Chair – Executive Committee - Troy Dunning
  • Tournament Co-Chair – Executive Committee
  • Treasurer – Executive Committee
  • Secretary – Executive Committee
  • Media & Communications – Executive Committee
  • Sponsorships – Executive Committee
  • Umpire-in-Chief – Executive Committee
  • Director – Executive Committee
Each of these positions will require a 3-4 year full commitment right through to the end of the tournament and post tournament debrief. 2017 & 2018 will be lighter commitment but 2019-2020 will be a highly active time leading up to the tournament opening in early to mid August of 2020.
 
If anyone is interested in sitting on the 2020 Executive Committee of the Canadian Little League Championships you are encouraged to contact Troy Dunning – Tournament Chair, no later than December 15, 2016 at 2020Canadians@Layritz.ca – please include which position you would like to be considered for.

Fall Member Meetings - Nov 14 and Nov 20
 
Hello Layritz Families,
 
I hope that this finds you all well and enjoying our West Coast fall!
 
I am writing to let you know of a few Layritz meetings that will be happening in November and hope that you will be able to attend. It is that time of the year when the Board is working behind the scenes to put everything in order from the last season and to get the ball rolling for our upcoming season.
 
The first meeting is a Special Meeting being called by the President to take place on November 14, 2016 at 7pm in the Layritz Clubhouse. A Special Meeting is called to deal with a specific subject and only that subject will be discussed - in this case it will be to review and vote on proposed changes to the Layritz Little League Bylaws.
 
Our organization operates under the BC Societies Act (http://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/employment-business/business/not-for-profit-organizations/societies) and effective November 28, 2016 the Society Act will change. As we will have to transition our constitution and bylaws to the new format it is also a good time to look at bringing our bylaws up to date and to make changes that will ensure that Layritz Little League can continue to operate efficiently and be good stewards of the park and league resources. All regular members are invited to attend and vote and a copy of the proposed changes will be sent to all members in the next week once we sort out emailing.
 
The second meeting is our Annual General Meeting to take place on November 20, 2016 at 7pm in the Arbutus room at the Saanich Commonwealth Place. This meeting will be to review the league budget in the Treasurers report, receive the Presidents report and conduct the annual election for open board positions. It is very important that we have adequate numbers at our AGM as our yearly gaming grant monies from the provincial government are dependent upon attendance. These monies are a significant portion of our annual funding and allow us to keep our registration and participation costs as low as possible. All regular members are invited to attend and vote.
 
A regular member is defined as:
 
Parents or legal guardians of each Player Member shall be considered a Regular Member upon payment of the annual registration fee for that player. In addition, any person actively interested in furthering the purpose of the Association may also become a regular member upon election as hereinafter provided.
 
I look forward to seeing you there.
 
Regards,
 
Jenna Hiser - President, Layritz Little League

AGM - Sunday, November 20th, 7-8:30pm in the Arbutus Room at Commonwealth Place

 

The Layritz Little League is holding their Annual General Meeting on Sunday, November 20th, at 7-8:30pm in the Arbutus Room of Commonwealth Place (upstairs, left of main entrance doors) - Saanich Commonwealth Place - 4636 Elk Lake Drive

Please make time in your schedules to attend, as this affects our ability to qualify for the Provincial Gaming grants that help fund our programs and keeps all our costs down.  Considering the countless hours our Board and Coaches give this program, please give this important one hour (or slightly more) of your time to help everyone involved.
.

Graduating 12 year olds - It's been fun!
Several 12 year old are graduating Little League this year.  We wish them well and hope they continue on with the great sports of baseball and softball and take those lessons learned of hard teamwork and personal pride with them throughout their lives!  Hopefully we'll see many of them as umpires next year or next door at Layritz Intermediate Baseball.

IMPORTANT Parking Information for Closing Ceremonies

In light of the closure of Wilkinson between Greenlea and Mann Ave we ask that you review the Layritz Parking options:

Out of respect for all our neighbours please drive slowly and cautiously through the neighbourhood approaching the park and do not park in the Resident Only parking on any of the surrounding streets.  We strongly support carpooling, walking and riding bikes to the park!

There is VERY limited parking in the Layritz lot however there is ample FREE parking available at the VI Tech Park lot located on the back side of the park off of Markham Rd - it is nearly equal walking distance to the fields.

Lets keep the park safe and the parking sane!

Please familiarize yourself with the following maps: the first identifies the location of both parking lots and the second clarifies the NO PARKING zones in the Layritz Lot.

The Next Week at Layritz Little League

Hello Layritz Friends and Family,

Welcome to the 2016 Season at Layritz Little League!  As happens every year it seems that spring break ends and then there is a mad dash to Opening Day with many jobs to find time to complete.  As you know we are 100% volunteer run and we are very fortunate to have such a talented and committed community to work with to keep this great park in tip top shape.

This weekend, April 2 & 3, is a very busy weekend and you will be receiving a number of emails regarding uniform fittings, coaching clinics, umpire clinics and last but certainly not least, park clean up.  For the 2016 Season we have introduced a new element to your volunteer commitment to the park.  You may have noticed that we were not collecting “concession deposits” at registration but rather, “volunteer deposits” with each family being asked to complete 2 volunteer shifts for each child registered (in tee-ball and up) to a maximum 4 shifts per family.  Park Clean-up will be the first of the new volunteer opportunities we will be offering this year.  If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity or would simply like to join us to help clean up and get Layritz ready for the Kids please review the directions below:

  1. We encourage everyone to come and help out with the Park Clean up – many hands make light work. However, you cannot sign in 4 different family members to cover all your required shifts in one day.  Each family can earn credit for 1 volunteer shift on each of April 2 and April 3 – shifts are from 10am – 2pm.

 

  1. Sign-up sheets will be available at the Concession window between 9:45 – 10:25 am – please make sure to clearly write your name, your players name and the team your player is on (if known). If we cannot read the names we cannot give you credit for work done.

 

  1. Job lists will be available at each of the diamonds, the batting cages and the concession. Please note that April 2 will only be working on: the mini-minor diamond, the blastball/teeball diamond, the softball diamond, the minor diamond and the concessionApril 3 will focus on the major baseball diamond, the batting cages, the concession and any work left over from the previous day.

 

  1. Please bring any tools you may have on hand – rakes, edgers, gloves, cleaning supplies (for the concession). Wear appropriate clothing and footwear as work may involve weeding the infields or sanding & painting new boards in the dugouts and on the bleachers.

 

  1. Have fun and know that your contribution to the park and our Little League Community is greatly appreciated by both the Board and all the kids who play and love Layritz Little League!

 

Looking forward to seeing you at the park,

Your 2016 Layritz Little League Board.
