2021 Spring season News
Posted Jul 26, 2019

Hello Alcoa Families,

   I hope everyone is enjoying this holiday season and are in good health. While this past year has prevented us from playing ball, we are looking forward to the coming year. Our hope is there will be some opportunities to get back out on the fields. That being said there will be a few changes this coming year to help ensure the kids have all available resources to have a successful season.

   So for the upcoming season we will be combining with Columbia Little League. Alcoa is not going anywhere and we are not dissolving the league. We have decided to do this for the upcoming year for several reasons. First of all, we have no idea what kind of season we are going to have. This provides us flexibility to ensure we can provide several opportunities for the kids to play. Second, we anticipate that overall participation numbers will be down and we want to ensure that we have enough kids at the start of season to form full teams. Finally, this is will also help financially, while we appreciated the generosity of so many families either donating or allowing their registration fees to be applied to future seasons. The inability to not have any season has  put a strain on the league. This move allows us to reorganize and prepare for future seasons. We rely on fundraising and sponsorships to help offset the majority of the costs associated with operating the league and we lost a whole year of that revenue for the league.

     I will outline some of the ideas we have been working on to help ease the combination of the leagues this season. We will use both fields for practices and games. This will help with always holding practices on actual fields and not on grass fields. This also provides opportunities to hold more and larger tournaments, which intern is a great way to increase revenue. We will still need volunteers, so anyone is still welcome to volunteer to coach, umpire, or volunteer in any way possible. This will help Alcoa in the future as well. Alcoa's Facebook page and website will still be around and active, however for this season all registration will be through Columbia LL. The link will be on our website when active. For those who wished to last year registration fees, just let me know and it will applied to whichever season you choose.

     A couple of updates a things happening at the league. First, Fort Vancouver High School has hired a new Varsity baseball coach. I have had several conversations with him and he is really excited to give back to the little league. There will be more to come on this, but I hope this will be a great partnership for years to come. Also, we will continue to improve the fields as we can during this time, if allowed by the School district. We have several items that we were hoping to fix or improve last year and will move forward as soon as we can. One of these is the score tower on the majors field. That is still in the plans. Unfortunately being on the school district property, we are at the mercy of them. Due to the fact it is deemed a non essential project, we cannot moved forward until restrictions are lifted. I do not have a timetable for that at this time. I am hoping that we will not have to go through entire process all over again and can move forward as soon as we can.    

  Again, Alcoa Little League is not going anywhere. I have been in constant communication with Dan Piovesan, the President of Columbia LL, and will be involved throughout the year. I will be more than happy to answer any question you have at any time. Hopefully I will see you all out there this coming year. Please have a Happy and Safe Nee Year

Sincerely,

Justin Cvitkovich

President Alcoa Little League
