Letter from our President - Thank You!

Dear Parents and Participants,
As the Belmont Little League Board President I want to thank you for your family’s involvement in our program for this past season. As a coach in our program for numerous seasons, I know the amount of time and effort it takes to prepare a team and league for play. I would like to thank you in advance for making the commitment to this league, and I look forward to working with all of you this upcoming season.
This year was full of success and wonderful achievement for our players, parents, coaches and overall our Little League program. Our results are not always about the 'win' column but the measure in player development and people development leading to our goal. Our goal of being able to produce well-respected individuals who will contribute to society now and model around what Little League stands for which is Character, Courage and Loyalty.  
With that being said, I’m excited to inform you all that with all the hard work and dedication of all of our volunteers we have been able to turn Belmont Little League back into a respected program in our community.  Our numbers have grown into a steady but manageable rate allowing us to stay ahead of the demands needed to keep up running in a positive direction. I would like to give a special thanks to ALL our hard working volunteers, coaches, and board members who have sacrificed time away from their families to assist with tasks needed to support our Little League in many areas, tryouts, Fall Classic Tournament, game day concessions, team manager duties, etc THANK YOU!  
Our program has grown this year. I am very proud of who we are becoming and with everything we have put in on a weekly basis preparing their players to succeed both on and off the field. I would also like to recognize the success of our first ever "Trunk or Treat!!" at Belmont Little League. It was a great turnout and it was a awesome watching the community come to together at Belmont Little League.
