Five Town Little League

FIVE TOWN LITTLE LEAGUE welcome

Camden, Rockport, Lincolnville, Hope and Appleton.

Greetings from the Five Town Little League Board of Directors. 

We serve children living in Appleton, Camden, Hope, Lincolnville, and Rockport, ages 5-12, who seek opportunities to play organized baseball and softball while building the values of good sportsmanship and good citizenship.

We welcome your volunteering assistance and look forward to seeing you out at the park.

[Mar 24 2021]   Coaching the Coaches Clinic - April 26

  • Coaching the Coaches Clinic
  • Monday, April 26, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM
  • At The PITCH, in Warren.

We are happy to be able to host a “Coaching the Coaches” clinic for new and returning baseball, softball, and tee balls coaches.  Nick Caiazzo, director of player development The Edge Academy, in Portland, and long-term coach of the Maine Thunder 14u travel softball team, will run the two-hour clinic, sharing tips about building baseball/softball fundamentals and running successful practices.

We can only allow a limited number of live participants, so email us today at mainefivetownlittleleague@gmail.com to reserve your spot.  We will be broadcasting the event live through Zoom for folks who cannot attend in-person, but do not delay if you want one of the in-person spots.

Get ready for the season and become the best coach you can be!  Join us on April 26!  If you have any questions, please email us at mainefivetownlittleleague@gmail.com.

 Also ...

Every volunteer - including coaches -- must complete and return an official 2021 Little League Volunteer Application before working with any of our community's children.  Please use the online form at the link below, save it onto your desktop, and then email it back to us at mainefivetownlittleleague@gmail.com.

[Mar 06 2021]   Softball Indoor Training Series

We are hosting a series of April Indoor Softball Clinics to help get our players back on the field and remember how much fun it is to play ball with their friends.  We'll be at the PITCH, in Warren on three consecutive Thursdays in April.  Health and safety require us to limit our numbers at 15 players per clinics, so we’re opening up registration here on a first-come, first-serve basis. This will help players gain some comfort throwing and catching before we all start outdoors at the end of April.  Learn more and register for our April Indoor Clinics Series on our website at http://ftll.sportsoffice.com. 

Registration cost for each session is $5.00 per player for a one-hour session.

Register on our SportsOffice Website here today!

Dates and Times are as follows:

  • April 1: 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.
  • April 8: 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
  • April 15: 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Please watch for updates on our website and on our Facebook page.

Register today for any of the three clinic sessions.

Players and adult volunteers must wear facemasks at all times in The PITCH facility. Players should bring their own gloves, bats (if you have one), and helmets (if you have one).  Please review The PITCH's policy on their website here.

PITCH announces: "Parents of participants may accompany their child into the building, but we ask that you remain in the lobby or mezzanine area upstairs and follow the six-foot distancing guideline from those not in your family. Only one parent per child is allowed at this time."

Hope to see you on the field soon!
