District 7 Little League

Message from D7 Administrator

Virginia District 7 Volunteers, Parents, Spectators and Players,

Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, on April 30th, Little League International has made the difficult and disappointing decision to cancel its World Series and Region Tournaments for first time in organization history. The Virginia State Little League Association has decided that no State Tournaments will be conducted in 2020, and additionally D7 will not conduct District tournaments in 2020. This in no way prevents local leagues from continuing with some semblance of regular season play, training and practice, and local tournaments/events so long as all local and state requirements and procedures are followed. Presently, Virginia is at a stay at home order until 10 June, it is unknown if that date will be moved to sooner or later.  There also could be a different date for youth activities based on the federal phasing requirements.

We are anxious to try to provide Baseball and Softball opportunities for all 4-16 year old players to the greatest extent possible, but will be a league specific decision. The safety and health of our players and volunteers is our number one priority. Please be patient as we work through this COVID-19 Pandemic situation/timeline together.

District 7 Staff and League Officers wish you the best during this uncertain time as we work through this together.  We’ll be back on the fields playing the great games of baseball and softball as soon as safe and practical.  Please visit Little League International @ http://LittleLeague.org for up-to-date information and to view Little League President and CEO Mr. Steve Keener’s video.


Respectfully,
Bob Sherrill
Virginia D7 Administrator

Free Training Courses

Free Online Courses - Big Al

District 7 Little League now has access to Big Al’s online training and development programs and resources for all of the Coaches, Parents and Players in 2020.

The parent programs include…instructional videos of the fundamental skills that player should learn and practice at both the 4-8 year old and 9-12 year old levels. 

The online programs also includes a Section called Practice at Home. This section of videos includes lots of fun drills, games and challenges that you can practice at home so you can get stronger and improve your skills all season long. 

There is also a section on strategy and positional play with roles and responsibilities for every player on the team in a variety of game situations.  

These resources will help you and your son or daughter have fun, stay in shape and improve their skills at home over the next few weeks and all season long. 

This material will come in handy as we are being restricted from practicing due to the COVID-19 virus but gives an opportunity to tune the skills while at home!
