A Letter from the President
Submitted By dsoulliere on Wednesday, February 15, 2012
Hello TCLL and welcome to the 2012 ball season.  

For those that are new to TC, I welcome you to our ball family and hope that you enjoy the upcoming season.  Your time at TC will make some unforgettable memories for your young players!  
For those that are returning I welcome you back for another exciting year...

Turtle Club is a community program operated by adult volunteers whose interest is the promotion of good, wholesome and well-supervised activities for young people.  More specifically, this program is dedicated to the task of developing good citizens by providing both house league as well as competitive baseball and softball programs for boys and girls under good leadership and in the wholesome atmosphere of community participation.

The members of The League give to the players within our boundaries a pledge of conformity to high standards of personal conduct, fair play, and good sportsmanship.  The managers, umpires and personnel directly involved with the players in the program are the crucial factor as to whether this program is successful.  The heart of Little League is what happens between the manager, umpire and player.  It is these people more than any others who determine the success of the program.  They control the situation in which the players may be benefited or harmed.

In the final analysis, what happens to the Little Leaguer is the major objective of this program called Little League.  “Is the player a better person as a result of their experience in the program?  Has the player learned some lessons and acquired some good habits and attitudes which will make them more effective in their future years as a parent and/or finer citizen?”  Baseball is not automatically a desirable experience for boys and girls.  It is our aim in The League to make it a desirable experience for boys and girls.

It is in this spirit that I appeal to you all.  We currently have approximately 50 teams across our baseball and softball divisions and in many of them we have a shortage of volunteer Managers and Coaches.  Without these volunteers we can't run our program.  In some cases it means we will be forced to put too many players on a team and have 5 and 6 kids sit on the bench every inning.  In other cases it means we will have to fold teams or divisions and turn down the opportunity for young boys and girls to play ball this spring.   

I ask that you help us in not allowing this to happen.  We need Managers in many divisions and coaches in many divisions as well.  Please do not sit back and think….well someone else will do it….please step up now and be a TC volunteer!  Please help us make this a great year for these players.

Please reach out to your Division Director at the email below and help us continue the great tradition of ball at TC!
