The practice season typically starts the first week of March and goes through early June.  With games starting the week prior to Spring Break, depending on Inter-League requirements.  All teams will be scheduled for two practices per week until games begin. Once games begin each team will practice once during the week.  No games will occur during Spring Break.   This is subject to change due to field availablity and game schedule and is only a guideline.

Why do I have to work concessions?

Without our wonderful community and team of volunteers, Ashland Little League would not be possible. By registering your child, you acknowledge that Ashland Little League  is a volunteer organization and every team will be required to work in the concession stand.


Ashland Little League is a 100% volunteer run sports organization. The league has numerous opportunities in areas such as the board, field preparation and maintenance, marketing, sponsorship, coordinating opening day activities, concessions,  coaches, and more. 

Parents are urged to come out and volunteer. Umpires, Team managers and coaches are needed for the spring season. The experience is a lot of fun and very rewarding. If interested in volunteering, please check our volunteer page on the website.   If you are interested in volunteering, you can simply fill out the contact form in the "VOLUNTEER WITH US" link above and a member of the league will be sure to contact you.
