4/5/24 A message from President Nick Smith
We are all aware of the weather we have been facing recently. We are hopeful for a break in the weather tonight, but we are preparing for the worst for Opening Day. Our Opening Day committee is working tirelessly to ensure that we have a fun and successful Opening Day no matter what the weather is for tomorrow. 

Opening Day and pictures will take place no matter what the weather is for tomorrow. With games and practices, there are no other feasible days for us to hold Opening Day after tomorrow. We are taking precautions to keep our players as dry as possible for their pictures while still providing the same high quality photos our WVLL families have come to expect every year. 

Your teams pictures will still proceed as scheduled. We will not be holding any make up picture days. 

In regard to the skills challenge, we will do everything in our power to hold the WVLL Skills Challenge as we do every year on Opening Day. If we are unable to due to weather or field conditions, we will update the league with our secondary plans. 

Thank you everyone for your patience and understanding in what has been a wet start to our 2024 season.

Baseball and softball assessments are Saturday, February 24th.  Below are some important details. Please read through.........

We have hundreds of kids to assess, so we are going to do our best to make it a very quick and fluid process.  On the baseball side, we will start with A, AA, AAA, then end with Majors.  Softball will only be assessing Majors and will start in the morning. A spreadsheet was sent out through email with your child's specific time.

See below for very important instructions:

1) Assessments are at Sawtooth Sports, which is an indoor facility located at 1216 Aviation Way in Caldwell, ID.  The first group will check in at 8:00am and the assessments will continue until approximately 7pm.

2) Sawtooth Sports has been kind enough to rent us their facility for the assessments.  With that, there is limited parking and space inside so we are asking for only one parent to bring your kid.  Due to the lack of space for both parking and parental areas to sit, we are asking that you not bring siblings to the assessments.  Sawtooth has a parking lot and some surrounding areas, but you may also have to park on Aviation Way and walk in.  Due to the parking issues, we are limiting the assessment "groups" to 12-14 players. 

3) Sawtooth is an exceptional indoor facility, so we ask that kids that are assessing wear sliders/sandals in ...and then change into turf or tennis shoes for their assessments -
no cleats allowed.  The less dirt we track in, the better.

4) Those assessing need to show up 20 minutes prior to their assessment time.  Within those 20 minutes, you will check in, be assigned a number, and start a static warm up.  Please do not show up too early.  If you are early, please wait in your car or outside until your specified time.  The check-in table will be easy to find after you enter the front lobby.

5) There will be a small area for parents to sit during assessments.  It will be the area by the old basketball gym...which is where softball will be holding their assessments (once you enter the facility and walk through the front office it is to the left). There will be no parents allowed by the gym equipment, the check-in area (after completing the process), or upstairs.  It will be clearly marked.  The area will be taped off for coaches to assess/WVLL board members facilitating the tryouts. 

6) Sawtooth has been kind enough to let us use their baseballs, so PLEASE leave Sawtooth with the same number of baseballs they started with.  If your kiddo tries to sneak out with one, please bring it back as we will have to pay for baseballs that are missing.  VP of softball Dave Dowling will be bringing softballs for the softball tryouts, but we have the same ask...if softballs walk away, we as WVLL have to purchase more.  

7) We understand that the times may not work for everyone, BUT, if we as WVLL have kids showing up at hours they aren't expected, it becomes a problem not only with the level of play they may attempt to assess with, but the coaches that need to assess them may be gone/haven’t arrived because it's not their time slot for their particular division.  As stated earlier, on the baseball side we are starting with A and then ending with Majors.  Also, having to add extra kids into time slots they aren't planned for will most likely cause us to run behind schedule.

Please don’t email us to change assessment times.  These times are chosen for specific reasons and we know it’s impossible to make times work perfectly for everyone.  Between softball and baseball we have nearly 340 players to assess, so please give us some grace.

At the end of the day, if your player doesn’t assess, your kid will still be drafted into the division he/she signed up for, they will just be subject to the blind draft and their name picked randomly.  If it is determined after a couple practices that they need to move up or down in divisions, the WVLL Board will work with you to make that happen.

That being said, please make EVERY attempt to make it to assessments as they really help make sure kiddos get selected for the most appropriate division from the beginning, which also helps make our teams in every division more even.  That then equals the best competition at every level, smaller teams (more playing time), and creates a better experience.

8) Once your kid is done assessing, please gather up your gear and head out as soon as you can because as stated earlier, parking and parental areas to sit are minimal.  Thank you for your investment in WVLL and we look forward to the assessment process and the draft process that follows.

thank you
West Valley

Softball Divisions:

Rookie Softball
Rookie Softball Division (Coach Pitch) of WVLL shall consist of player members who are league age seven (7) and eight (8). The Rookie Softball Division is primarily designed for players league age 7 and 8; a player member who is league age six (6) and has had one year of Tee-ball experience may wish to enroll at this level of play.

Minor Softball 
9-12 Major/Minor League – The Major/Minor League Softball division of SBLL shall consist of players who are league age nine (9), ten (10), eleven (11) and twelve (12). The 9-12 League is broken into two divisions: Minors and Majors. Prior to the start of the season, all players must participate in a skills assessment.

(i) Minor League Softball – will consist of member players not selected in the Major player draft. Teams in this division will be made up of player’s league age 9 through 11. The Softball Player Agent will form the teams and every effort will be made to balance the player skill level equally among the teams. Requests for placement on specific teams will be allowed.

Majors Softball 
Major League Softball – will consist of member players who have participated in the skills assessment and are subsequently selected in the player draft. These players can be league age 10 through 12. If a player was selected as a Major player in the previous year, that player will remain in the Major level and will have to go through the assessment. 100% of 12 year olds must be in the Major Division.

Juniors and Seniors Softball
This is the highest level of “competitive” softball in Little League and  shall consist of players age thirteen (13) to sixteen (16). Due to the low number of players at this level the district (district II) has decided to combine the junior and senior leagues. As with Majors, the players will attend a tryout where coaches will evaluate and determine which players to draft to the Junior/Senior level.
