Gold Coast Little League is a baseball and softball program for boys and girls in Glen Cove and surrounding communities who are currently in pre-kindergarten through ninth grade. Operating under the direction of the City of Glen Cove Parks & Recreation Department, Gold Coast Little League is scheduled to kick off its 2018 season with a parade and Opening Day Ceremony on Saturday, April 14. All players in competitive leagues are guaranteed a 12-game season plus playoffs, with games to be played at John Maccarone Memorial (City) Stadium in Glen Cove. Based on enrollment, some inter-league games may be played on neighboring community fields.
The leagues’ 2018 registration dates are scheduled on Saturday, Jan. 13 and 20, from 10 a.m. to noon in the main chambers of Glen Cove City Hall, 9 Glen St., Glen Cove.
“The mission of our league is to provide a wholesome, healthy activity for children using the ball field as a classroom to instill discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play,” said Darcy Belyea, director of Glen Cove Parks & Recreation.
Gold Coast Little League’s registration fee includes uniform (shirt, hat, pants and socks) and team photo for each player. Glen Cove residency is not required to participate and parents are encouraged to bring their child/children to registration to allow for correct uniform sizing. Birth certificates are required at registration for all players born after 2008 and for first-time registrants. The League welcomes parents and adult volunteers and interested parties can inquire at registration about volunteering their time.
