More Info about the EGCLLA
The Edwardsville / Glen Carbon Little League Association (EGCLLA) is a privately run, non-profit, volunteer organization that provides recreational summer baseball and tee ball leagues for children in Kindergarten through the 12th grade. We are not a part of the City of Edwardsville or the Village of Glen Carbon parks departments. We do however have our practices and play our games on city-owned and village-owned fields. The EGCLLA is organized and administered by a volunteer Board of Directors. The divisions of teams are formed by the child's current school grade during the Spring term and are organized as follows:
Your support provides for the printing of team uniforms with your business name which will be kept by the players for personal use after the season is completed.
Rain out Cancellation Procedure - GAMES ONLY
This season we will communicate rain out cancellations through our Team Snap app/website. Parents/Guardians that have registered their child(ren) will receive email, alerts, text messages when games are cancelled.
**Important** -- Parents must accept the invitation to join their team once rosters have been formed in order to receive communications from the coach and league office.
EGCLLA Rain out Make-up policy
When a team reaches three (3) rain outs during the season the league office will re-schedule the first game that was rained out. The second and third rained out games will not be re-scheduled. If a team only has two (2) rain outs then those games will not be re-scheduled. If a team has four (4) rain outs then the first and second games will be re-scheduled.
Rain out policy for Practices
The League office does not send out cancellation notices for practices. The Head coach is responsible for communicating with parents/players regarding practices being cancelled.
"EGCLLA is a gem for this area. The little league that I had in my home town folded due to everyone moving to "select" teams. Now, there is no little league there for the families that cannot afford "select" or have other reasons for not going to a "select" team. We are lucky here to have EGCLLA."
"Thanks for all your hard work. It has been a great experience and we have truly enjoyed it!"
"Thank you for your time, your commitment to EGCLLA, and your patience. It is great to see what a good league EGCLLA is for the kids."
"They had some good coaches. My grandson had a awesome season."
"This was fun to watch! They do have some enthusiastic coaches who are also fun to see how they interact wonderfully with the team!"
"Thank you to EGCLLA for making this evening special for the boys!!"
"Thanks again for another great season!!"
"We have made contact with the new manager. Thank you so much for your help, from all of us."
"Thanks for all you do! We as coaches appreciate it. Had a great season!"
Great organization. My son has really enjoyed playing little league. Great coaches.
