Breda Little League

Can you feel spring fever setting in? If so, it means it's also time to sign-up for the 2018 Little League season in Breda. The league will once again field boys and girls teams from T-Ball up to Seniors. And, for the sixth year in a row, a T-ball Learning Camp will be offered for 3 and 4-year-olds.

Because we know everyone has busy schedules, instead of scheduling a sign-up day this year, the Breda Recreation League is requesting parents to register their children by sending forms and entry fees in the mail. To be part of the Breda Little League, parents need to complete the Youth Sports Emergency Form , which will serve as a combined player registration and medical waiver form. Also, please provide a copy of your child's birth certificate along with a registration fee. If your child played on a team in Breda in 2017, the league does not need a copy of his/her birth certificate, as that should already be on file. Only new kids to the league will need to turn in a copy of their birth certificate. As in years past, players outside of Breda are welcome to join the league. There will be age groups with more than one team (most boys' teams) and they will be split up as evenly as we can.

Fees for 2018 are $25 for T-Ball team members and T-Ball Learning Camp participants, $30 for pee wees, minors and majors,  and $35 for senior boys and girls. Checks can be made payable to the Breda Rec League. Checks and completed registrations should be mailed to: Breda Rec League, PO Box 302, Breda, IA 51436, or they can be dropped off in person on weekdays to Jenny Bauer at MoveIt (103 MoveIt Drive in Breda). Registration deadline is Friday, March 23. Any registrations received after that date and prior to April 7 will still be accepted but will be subject to a $20 late fee. No registrations will be accepted past April 7, 2018.

The league is always looking for volunteer coaches. If you are interested in volunteering, please note that on your registration and which team(s) you'd be available for. Be sure to also include a drivers license photo if you haven't coached before.  We are also looking for umpires, please contact one of the board members or email us if you know someone who is looking to make some extra cash this summer! 

Once again team pictures will be scheduled for Tuesday, May 29, at Breda's Memorial Park shelterhouse. Parents will have the option to purchase professional team or individual photos. While picture purchases are optional, all team members should be present for the team photo.

Other Breda Little League notes:

  • If your child has a hat from last year that still fits and is in good shape, please note on the registration form NO HAT NEEDED.
  • The league is again looking for team sponsors. If you or your business is interested in sponsoring a team, please contact the Breda Rec board members. Click here for more information.
  • There will be Breda Little League fanwear apparel available for purchase later this spring. The design is currently being finalized.
  • Parents will be asked to help out with the scoreboard. If every parent helps out just once, the season will be covered!

We are again (as a league) going by grade and not by age. The typical age breakouts are as follow:

  • T-Ball Learning Sessions: ages 3-4
  • T-Ball (must be age 5 prior to June 1, 2018): Pre-K and K
  • Pee Wee: Grades 1 and 2
  • Minors: Grades 3 and 4
  • Majors: Grades 5 and 6
  • Seniors: Grades 7, 8 and 9

Last year we were able to field a Pee Wee girls softball team, so if there aren't enough girls for a full team we will play co-ed baseball with the boys (with a squishy baseball).
