Is there Baseball beyond the Spring season?
Skokie Little League offers Summer Baseball. This is more recreational Baseball for players that want to keep playing Baseball in July. This is an opportunity for kids who may miss time due to summer vacation or camp, as well as for players who do not play travel Baseball, but still have interest in playing beyond the Spring season.
Skokie also offers Fall Baseball.
Can my son or daughter play up a level, or play down a level?
Rarely do we allow a player to play up an age group, but it is dependent on the circumstance. For players that are not quite ready to move up to the next level, there is an option to play one more year at a lower age group to work on skills. Players that would like to play up or down are handled on a case by case basis.
Are discounts available if I sign up 3 or more of my children?
Yes. We offer discounts for families with 3 or more children. The first two players are full price and there is a discount for the 3rd child and beyond. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for more information.
Does Skokie provide opportunities for those going through hardships to play Baseball?
