News and Announcements
Hello SMLL Families,
We hope the rest of your summers with family and friends were great! We have a couple of announcements about the 2023 season …
New Registration and League System
We have great news! This upcoming 2023 season we will be switching our registration and league systems from Team Pages (aka Active Network) to Sports Connect (aka Blue Sombrero). This new system is partnered with the Little League organization and will help make registration and paperwork easier to complete for families and automate several administrative tasks for our league. This switch will include both South Milwaukee Little League and Jr Rockets programs. More details coming soon!
Jr Rockets Families: If your child is on a 2023 Jr Rockets team, that registration is now open on the new system. Please go here to register: https://clubs.bluesombrero.com/Default.aspx?tabid=1334562
Board Open Positions
If you have ideas to help make a great baseball and softball experience for the kids in our league, or are looking for a more active role in supporting South Milwaukee Little League, please consider an open board position. If you are interested in an open position or would like to learn more about an open position, email Jason Brzek at firstname.lastname@example.org
Elections for open positions will be held on September 13 at the Annual Membership Meeting.

We’re excited for the new season and wish all the kids a great upcoming school year!

The program has the capability of keeping young players at the same age level playing together up to entering his or her high school years.
Each team has the ability to practice year-round through the facilitating efforts of both the Jr. Rockets Coordinator and the team’s manager. Each Jr. Rockets Team participates in five (5) tournaments over the summer (one home, four “away”), selected by the team’s manager.
Feel free to email Jr Rockets Coordinator Adam Behnke (email@example.com) with any questions.
