Woburn Little League is proud to announce changes for the upcoming 2023 season
New Division: AAA Softball (8u) (Ages 7 – 8)
AAA Softball is for players born between 1/1/2014 - 12/31/2015.
Woburn Little League's first level of softball is the AAA Division. With an emphasis on small rosters, coaches introduce the fundamentals of the game in a safe and team-oriented environment. Coaching instruction is provided by parent volunteers teaching the basics of pitching and catching, as well as defensive strategy. Practice schedules will be designed once we have the registration numbers.
All 3 divisions will now feature intra-league games against Bedford, Billerica, Concord Carlisle, North Reading, Stoneham, Tewksbury, Wakefield & Wilmington. More information & schedules to come as registration & teams are finalized.
Once more details with the MVGSL are finalized, Woburn Little League will hold a virtual session to discuss all the changes and answer any questions. Please contact Woburn Little League, firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions!
Frequently Asked Questions
1.With a move to the MVGSL, what is changing?
The main difference is that each division will have guaranteed umpired games against intra-league opponents each season.
All team schedules will include games against Woburn teams as well as MVGSL teams . Schedules are built by the MVGSL, with input from each town. Specifics on schedules are still to be determined.
Towards the end of the season, an all-star game will be played featuring some of our players at a rotated venue each season. More details will be announced as they become available.
Woburn will be appending their official softball playing rules to adapt the rules of USA Softball and the MVGSL.
2. With a move to the MVGSL, what is staying the same?
Woburn will continue to build teams as they have in the past with an emphasis on balanced teams.
A playoff will be held to crown the Woburn champion for each applicable division. More details on the Woburn City Champion will be announced as they become available.
3. What is the division breakdown by age?
With the creation of a new division, AAA Softball, Woburn will continue to look at the softball division to make sure that we are able to provide the best experience to all the girls interested in playing.
4. My 8yr old daughter played Minors Softball last year (as a 7 yr old), where is she eligible to play?
With our switch to the MVGSL, we are going to continue to learn and adapt to provide the best experience for the girls. For the 2023 season, all girls under the age of 11 who played in the minors during the 2022 season are eligible to play in the minors at the parent’s discretion. Each parent of an 8yr old, who played last year, will be given the choice whether their daughter will play in AAA Softball or the Minors softball division.
7 & 8yr old girls who are new to the program will make up our AAA Softball division.

Even if you volunteered in Spring 2022 or Summer/Fall 2022, you need to register for the 2023 season to volunteer in 2023.
Note: Coaches and assistant coaches (anyone who is actively involved in supervising children) is required to fill out a CORI and a Little League volunteer form in addition to this form. If you completed these two forms in Spring 2022 or Summer/Fall 2022, these will need to be completed for the 2023 season.
We are excited to announce that Woburn Little League will return with the Winter Clinic starting on January 15th. Once again, sessions will be held at the Joyce Middle School gym on Sunday mornings. These sessions are designed to be fun and teach the fundamentals of the game with drills covering all aspects of play. This is a wonderful opportunity for players of all skill levels to get back into baseball and softball before getting onto the fields in the spring.
For this year our sessions will be divided by age groups with each group playing on alternating weekends for a total of six 90 minute sessions for each group. Because of the varying levels of the sessions it will be important your child only attends the session for their age group. The schedule is as follows:
Group A will play the following Sundays: 1/15, 1/29, 2/12, 2/26, 3/12, 3/26
9:00am-10:30am – AA Baseball (5-6 year olds based on 2023 baseball age matrix)
10:45am-12:15am – AAA Baseball (7-8 year olds based on the 2023 age matrix)
Group B will play the following Sundays: 1/22, 2/5, 2/19, 3/5, 3/19, 4/2
Registration fee for Winter Clinic is $100 per player. Spots are limited for each session so do not delay in signing up. Registration can be completed on the Woburn Little League website: www.woburnlittleleague.org.
This is also a great opportunity for coaches to get to know the kids and learn about the game. More coaches means more drills, more reps and more fun. If you are interested in volunteering as a coach please email email@example.com for information.
Woburn Little League has implemented the following Parent Code of Conduct for the important message it holds about the proper role of parents in supporting their child in sports. Parents should read, understand and sign this form prior to their children participating in our league.
Any parent guilty of improper conduct at any game or practice will be asked to leave the facility and be suspended from the following game. Repeat violations may cause a multiple game suspension, or the season forfeiture of the privilege of attending all games.
The essential elements of character-building and ethics in sports are embodied in the concept of sportsmanship and six core principles:
Good Citizenship The highest potential of sports is achieved when competition reflects these “six pillars of character.”
I therefore agree:
I will not force my child to participate in sports.
I will remember that children participate to have fun and that the game is for youth, not adults.
I will inform the coach of any physical disability or ailment that may affect the safety of my child or the safety of others.
I will learn the rules of the game and policies of the league.
I (and my guests) will be a positive role model for my child and encourage sportsmanship by showing respect and courtesy, and by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, officials and spectators at every game, practice or other sporting event.
I (and my guests) will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, player, or parent such as booing and taunting; refusing to shake hands; or using profane language or gestures.
7. I will not encourage any behaviors or practices that would endanger the health and well being of the athletes.
8. I will teach my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.
9. I will demand that my child treat other players, coaches, officials and spectators with respect regardless of race, creed, color, sex or ability.
10. I will teach my child that doing one’s best is more important than winning, so that my child will never feel defeated by the outcome of a game or his/her performance.
11. I will praise my child for competing fairly and trying hard, and make my child feel like a winner every time.
12. I will never ridicule or yell at my child or other participants for making a mistake or losing a competition.
13. I will emphasize skill development and practices and how they benefit my child over winning. I will also de-emphasize games and competitions in the lower age groups.
14. I will promote the emotional and physical well- being of the athletes ahead of any personal desire I may have for my child to win.
15. I will respect the officials and their authority during games and will never question, discuss, or confront coaches at the game field, and will take time to speak with coaches at an agreed upon time and place.
16. I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free from drugs, tobacco, and alcohol and I will refrain from their use at all sports events.
17. I will refrain from coaching my child or other players during games and practices, unless I am one of the official coaches of the team.
