As we approach the conclusion of the regular season, Stamford National American Little League is pleased to offer players Little League ages 7-12 years, who are not selected to a district all-star team, the opportunity to continue playing baseball this summer. Summer baseball begins immediately after our Spring Season. Stamford National American Little League (SNALL) offers a variety of summer programs for players ranging from ages 7 through 12 (Little League Age).
In the District 1 Friendship League Divisions typically are available for each age group. SNALL's ability to field teams in various age groups is entirely dependent on volunteer participation. These teams will be sanctioned only after the league has received commitment from volunteers to manage and coach these teams. The Friendship League season runs from on or about the end of June through the end of July.
If you would like to manage or coach a team, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP.
We are proud to offer the following summer programs:

The primary goals of Summer Travel B and Friendship Teams is to have a competitive team to play against other towns in Fairfield County, providing a suitable vehicle for team and individual skills development to prepare the players for future All Star baseball for ages 10-12.
