Yet, it has not stopped us as volunteers from continuously working on a plan for returning to the field and providing a Little League experience for our players.As each league begins their phased approach to reopening, we ask and highly encourage that everyone adheres to the guidelines set forth by their respective leagues.We fully understand that not everyone will agree with the guidelines put in place and that is okay. All we are asking, is for the hour or so you spend at the diamond, to please follow the guidelines so we can continue to offer children the opportunity to play baseball again.The safety and well-being of all our participants, volunteers, families and friends is always paramount, and today, it is more important than ever to think about those things off-the-field that make the Little League experience special – teaching life lessons; being kind and gracious and supporting your local community.We are starting our come back to be stronger than ever. We will rally around our communities, welcome all of life’s challenges, and leave a legacy of time spent together at all our Little League fields across the District.

A Message From Our President.


My name is Martin Talbot and I am the new President of Stoney Creek Little League (SCOLL). I started volunteering with SCOLL 6 years ago. Started as a coach, then a convenor and the last 3 years as Treasurer.

Due to Covid, our past board of director members have other commitments and will not be returning. This leaves SCOLL in a difficult position for the upcoming season. 
Currently we have a President and a Vice-President. Thank you to Tim Simmons stepping up in this role. However we cannot run SCOLL with 2 people.
So we need your help. Some of you of have already reached out to me and thank you. but we need more people for the following positions. Secretary, Treasurer, Uniform/Equipment Manager, Field Maintenance Manager, Convenors.These positions need to be filled before we can even look into getting coaches for the kids.
From there, we can strategically plan for the upcoming season.
We want to begin the week of June 28 and run until possibly Labour Day Weekend. Of course we cannot play games, we will look at running practices and if games become a possibility, we will look at running some kind of playoff at the end of the season. 
Again, this is only possible with help from you the parents. 
If interested in being a board member please send me an email, (

The plan would be to hold a zoom call Thursday night at 7pm and discuss some of the positions and what that entails.
Thank you all, Let’s play Ball

Martin Talbot

President Stoney Creek Little League

Executive Committee Announcement

Hi everyone,

We have an announcement and a request.

Effective immediately, Martin Talbot will be assuming the role of President, and Tim Simmons will be assuming the role of Vice President.

We are looking for volunteers for all other roles of the Stoney Creek Optimist Little League Executive Committee.

Some roles available are: Secretary, Treasurer, Field Equipment Manager.

We are also looking for Conveners.

If you are interested in any of these roles,

please contact Martin at, or

Tim Simmons at

We will provide further updates on what we can or cannot do this season as soon as we can.

These will be posted on our Website’ Update Page and on Facebook.



We are currently looking for sponsors for the 2021 season and beyond, this will help us offset the costs of running the league, we are a non for profit league and so all the extra costs related to covid have a large effect on the league and how it functions, we still had many costs last season to keep the park maintained even though we had no baseball and therefore no revenue coming in.

If you would like more information please reach out to Kevin at


Volunteers are the backbone of any sports league and Stoney Creek Little League is no different.  Most people don’t know how many people it takes to run a baseball league, between coaches, board members, divisional or league convener it takes a large group of people to make this happen.

Coaches – As you sign your child up, if you are willing to help a coach or want to coach a team please let us know

This year we will need help with sanitizing on and off the field so league volunteers are always welcome

League Convener – This job allows us to have one person communicate within a division to coaches and parents

Executive Members – It takes a dedicated group of people to run the league and get it ready for the season to start, we are looking for multiple positions and welcome any inquiries.

COVID -19 Update

In this uncertain times we want everyone to know that the Board is working on the assumption that we will have a baseball season in 2021 but only time will tell when and if that will happen.  As we watch the news we are hopeful that our region will be in the proper zone to allow baseball activities to continue.

We are planning for baseball games to be played and if the outlook doesn’t look like we can play games the league will re-assess to determine if there is another option that we may be able to offer in the way of baseball clinics.

During this process we recognize that we may need to implement changes and restrictions based on the direction received from local and provincial government along with Little League Canada.

To keep yourselves informed please continue to check the website and Facebook.

Right now we are not allowing payments to go through on our online registration but we encourage everyone to go online and register, this will allow us to see where we stand when we can resume baseball activities.  When we have a clear direction on what is happening people will be able to go back into the registration system to pay or will be able to provide us a cheque.
