News and Announcements
Our Fall Ball registration will end soon so don’t wait until the last minute to register. We are placing jersey orders soon and to guarantee a proper fit we need to know your players size so register ASAP. Remember our Fall league is for ages 8 – 14 only. If you are not going to be 8 in 2018 please contact me personally at email@example.com for alternatives.
We need everyone that wants to play to register soon so we can do the proper planning for the season. Registration is easy. Just follow the link www.hobesoundlittleleague.com and press the “BIG RED BUTTON”.
The Little League World Series starts August 17th on ESPN and that means it is time for Fall ball in Hobe Sound.
We are now accepting registrations to our Fall program. Please visit our homepage (www.hobesoundlittleleague.com) to register. Click the “BIG RED BUTTON” in the center of our website to fill out our registration form.
The cost to register is $50 per player with scholarships available upon request only. To request a scholarship contact the league president at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have heard feedback from parents about our past Fall programs and have added games to the season. We are accepting registrations for all players ages 8-14 in 2018. If your player will be younger than 8 or older than 14 in 2018 please contact us at email@example.com to discuss your options.
The season will start with a mandatory parent/player meeting on August 30th @ 6:30pm at JV Reed fields. Practice will begin the following week and first games will be played on September 16th.
If you have any questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I wanted to send this email out to let all our parents and players know that we will begin Fall Ball registration in about a week. We are finalizing plans for the season this week and will begin registration this weekend.
Here is what I do know right now:
- We will be having 2 levels
- The lower level is for 2017 league ages 8 – 11 (i.e. you will be playing in the major division or below next year)
- The upper level is for 2017 league ages 12 and up (all games will be played on the 60/90 full size field
- All kids younger than 8 can register and we will be transferring you to MCS who will have divisions for this age group
- The season will have games played against other teams in the district
- The season will begin the first week of September and go through the week before Thanksgiving
- All Hobe Sound players must register in Hobe Sound, all MCS players must register in MCS
- Our registration costs will be about half that of MCS
- Parents are needed to volunteer to help coach teams
- Those interested show up to the first meetings (TBD) to discuss and submit request
- Coaches from the 2017 T-ball and Coach Pitch divisions are encouraged to participate so you get a chance to learn the basic skills for coaching in the higher divisions
Watch for another email in a few days with more information including a link to register…

I want to congratulate every player on the team and wish all of you luck in the tournament.
The Hobe Sound Little League Minor Rangers have won the Florida District 17 Tournament of Champions (TOC). Included below are some fantastic facts about the Ranger’s win:
- Hobe Sound Little League (HSLL) has not won the Florida District 17 Tournament of Champions (TOC) for more than 25 years (maybe never but I couldn’t confirm this fact) in any division of Little League.
- The Rangers were 15-2 this season in regular season play against District 17 inter-league teams.
- The Rangers won the TOC undefeated, outscoring their opponents 29-5 with all 5 runs being unearned.
- Two home runs over the fence were hit during TOC games by Rangers players.
- The dominance of this team was something to be amazed at and proud of as a HSLL parent and league official.
Great job and congratulations,
