Challenger Division which is an adaptive baseball program for boys and girls

Serra Alumni Series: Casey Douglas
Serra Little League has
represented Sunnyvale for more than 50 years, so it's natural that the league
played host to thousands of young baseball players over the years. As part of
the Serra Alumni Series, we'll showcase some of the players who have gone on to
player higher level baseball. In this installment, we feature for Serra player
determination criteria defined by Little League Baseball
In April, 2014
the International Congress approved the new league age determination amendment
for Little League Baseball®. To implement the new amendment, it was decided
to include a three-year waiting period to execute the change, starting in 2018.
Questions from the field were raised about the impact the change would have on
players that were currently league age 8 under the traditional system.
Board Positions Open
Help us frame the direction of Serra Little League
by volunteering for a position on the league Board of Directors. There are
several open positions that we desperately need to fill. The Board meets once a
month in the evenings, and only requires a few hours of your time.
Serra 10-9 All Stars Win Section
Serra's 9-10 All Stars became the first team in the
league's 50+ year history to capture a Section 5 Championship. Serra was forced
to win back-to-back games against Los Gatos Little League, in order to capture
the title. Serra won on a walk-off hit in extra innings for the dramatic
Serra 10-9 All Stars Win District 44
The 9-10 All Stars from Sunnyvale's Serra Little League
capped a perfect tournament on Monday night, winning Little League's California
District 44 Championship with a 5-2 win over Los Altos Little League at Robert
Holman Field in Campbell. The Serra All Stars won all five games over the two
week tournament that pegged 13 teams from District 44 against each other.
Registration Advisory: New School
A new modification to the Little League's
residency rule for 2014 has just been released from Little League
International. The rule in brief reads: 'A player may qualify for residency of
a league if, the player attends a school within the league boundaries.' Or
worded slightly differently: 'Player A that live within League B boundaries and
attends school within League C boundaries has the option of playing baseball
within either League B or C without penalty.' Example: If player A lives
outside the boundaries of Serra but attends school that's address is within
Serra's boundaries (like Cupertino Middle School or West Valley Elm School),
player A qualifies as a "resident" of Serra and may play baseball with Serra
without penalty. Proof of participation with a school may be a report card,
progress report or admissions letter.
New intermediate level division (13 year olds)
League is planning to start up an Intermediate Division (playing on a 50/70
diamond) for 13 year olds only. This is contingent upon having the Cupertino 1
field modified to be used as a 70 ft. diamond as well as enough players
registering to play, and having a volunteer to manage the team. This is in
addition to the Juniors Division which is for 13 and 14 year olds. If you have
questions regarding either the Intermediate Division or the Juniors Division,
