2021 JIT Champs - North Park Junior Division A's
Final JIT Brackets:  
2021 JTI Brackets

The 7th Annual Juniors Invitational Tournament was held on April 22nd thru April 25th, 2021. This tournament was played at three different locations over four days.  A big "Thank You" goes out to Murphy Canyon, North Park and Sunshine for volunteering the use of their fields for the tournament.   I also would like to recognize the other Tournament Directors that volunteered their services for the tournament; Mark Hopkins, Danyell DiLena and David Graham. The tournament would not be possible if we didn't have any umpires, as always Mark Beall made sure all the games were covered. I believe Mark worked a total of five games and did three games on Saturday, one at each location. That is what this District is known for - Great Volunteers!  Congratulations to the North Park A’s  for winning the 2021 Junior Invitational Tournament Flag.

2021 CBI Champs - San Carlos Major Division Blue Jays
Final CBI Brackets:  2021 CBI Brackets
The 13th Annual CBI Tournament is in the record books. This year was quite different because of COVID-19. We may not have been able to host it in San Bernardino, but at least the players were able to play this year. I would like to thank everyone who came out to La Mesa National Little League and Rolando Little League to watch some long awaited games! Congratulations to the San Carlos Blue Jays for winning the tournament!

 

I would like to thank all the volunteers that’s helped make this year enjoyable. With the tournament being held locally, we needed to have more volunteers. Thank you Marty Richardson (Rolando) and Ron Ficalora (La Mesa National) for graciously hosting. Thank you Mark Beall (District 33 UIC) for arranging each game having four umpires!

 

Thanks again to everyone that helped make this weekend possible.  I hope everyone has an enjoyable and safe season!!

The online Concussion Protocol Training is at: https://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/training/.

2.     A concussion and head injury information sheet must be signed by both the athlete and a parent/guardian before the athlete initiates practice or competition. An existing form from the 2020 spring may be used if it’s available. The signed sheet must be carried with the player’s medical release and code of conduct form.

Abuse Awareness Protocol: (Required Once)

1. (a) All managers and coaches must complete the Abuse Awareness training provided by USA Baseball and SafeSport. The managers and coaches must carry documentation that the course has been completed. Here is the link to the course: Abuse Awareness for Adults (usabdevelops.com)

 

Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Protocol: (Required Once)

AB379 now requires the same protocols used for concussions in youth and high school sports to be used to help protect young athletes participating in school and community youth sports organizations from sudden cardiac arrest—the #1 killer of young athletes. Community youth sports organizations include an organization, business, nonprofit entity, or a local governmental agency that sponsors or conducts amateur sports competitions, training, camps, or clubs in which persons 17 years of age or younger participate. The online Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Training is at: https://epsavealife.org/sca-prevention-training/

Please save and carry each of the certification certificates for all of your managers/coaches in your team binder.  Administrators and Sports Officials should carry a hardcopy or an electronic copy with them to all game sites.
