Annandale-North Springfield Little League (ANSLL) established in 1956 and was created through the merger of two formerly separate leagues. It is a 501(c)3 non-profit Virginia corporation and a chartered affiliate of Little League Baseball Inc. operating under its rules and regulations. ANSLL is in Little League's Southern Region and competes within Virginia's District 10.
Please let us know if your player has catchers gear in the comment section of the sign up.
We highly encourage that each catcher have someone with them to go through the drills that we will do. Our goal is to give ANSLL catchers drills that they can do at any practice, but more importantly at home.
We will be accepting a $10 donation for each player at the clinic.
ANSLL Partners with Positive Coaching Alliance to Benefit Youth Athletes
ANSLL has established a partnership with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA), a national non-profit developing “Better Athletes, Better People” by working to provide all youth and high school athletes a positive, character-building sports experience.
The partnership provides ANSLL access to PCA’s training for coaches, sports parents, student-athletes and administrators, comprising live group workshops, online courses, books by PCA Founder Jim Thompson and additional online resources, such as e-mailed follow-up tips and reminders.
PCA has partnered with roughly 3,500 youth sports organizations, schools, districts, conferences, and park-and-rec departments to create a Development ZoneTM culture, where the goal is using youth and high school sports to develop Better Athletes, Better People, Thompson said. “We look forward to working with ANSLL to create the best possible experience for the youth athletes. Our research-based materials combine the latest in sports psychology, education and practical advice from top pro and college coaches and athletes that help improve athletic performance while also ensuring kids take life lessons from sports that will help them throughout the rest of their lives.”
As part of this partnership, PCA will conduct two live workshops. The first workshop is for the parents, and the second workshop is for the managers. The Second-Goal Parent® workshop for the parents is scheduled for Sunday, February 9, and will coincide with the first player evaluation session for the majors-minors registrants. The Double-Goal Coach® workshop for the managers is scheduled for Monday, March 16. For information about the dates and locations, please contact the ANSLL Coaching Coordinator, Sean George, at CoachingCoordinator@ansll.org.
