Now Offering Girls Softball!
posted 10/24/2018

NEW FOR 2019! Registration for our first-ever girls' softball program is now open at www.southsunrise.com! The Board has decided to offer registration for all ages (4-12). There will be several divisions based primarily on age. The division structure will likely look something like this:

T-Ball Softball (Ages 4-6)

8u Machine Pitch (Ages 6-8)

10u Kid Pitch (Ages 8-10)

12u Kid Pitch (Ages 10-12)

Our goal is to have most of the practices and games at our home fields, but may need to play some games elsewhere against other leagues if a particular division does not have enough teams. We are counting on you to help us spread the word so we can register as many girls as possible!

Registration in softball will give you all of the same perks you receive with our baseball registration (uniforms, trophies, tournaments, Opening Day, Picture Day, Angels Day, etc). We have decided to keep the registration fee low this year to encourage more families to register. Please register sooner rather and help us get the word out!

Volunteer to Manage, Coach or Umpire in 2019!
posted 10/21/2018


We are now accepting applications for volunteer managers & coaches for all levels of play. If you are interested in managing or coaching a team this upcoming 2019 season, please click here to fill out an application

All applications are due by December 1st. Please note that all managers are required to attend our all-day Coaches Clinic tentatively scheduled for Saturday, January 19 at South Sunrise Little League.



Volunteer adult umpires are becoming a rarity. We are in desperate need of more adult umpires. In fact, the situation is so dire that California District 30 is now mandating that each league train and register one adult umpire per upper division team. Umpiring is a great way to earn your mandatory volunteer points, and will help you gain a greater appreciation for the game of baseball. We implore you to consider volunteering to umpire this upcoming season.

To earn your four volunteer points, you must attend the District Umpires Clinic on Saturday, February 2 at Santiago Middle School, as well as one of the Rules Clinics on either February 13 or February 21. After that, you only need to umpire two games at South Sunrise Little League to fulfill your volunteer requirement (although you are certainly welcome to volunteer to umpire more games if you enjoy it).

If interested, please email our Umpire in Chief, Billy Applegate at BillyApplegate@sgws.com to receive more information.

Register for Our 50/70 Intermediate Division!
posted 10/20/2018


What is the Intermediate (50/70) division?

Played on Sundays, the intermediate division is a division for 11 - 13 year old players. Though not required, it is intended to be played IN ADDITION to the normal baseball season. The division offers a transition for players between the standard Little League field size (46-foot pitching distance and 60-foot base paths) and the High School field size (60-foot pitching distance and 90-foot base paths). In addition to the field size changes, the Intermediate division allows leading off, metal cleats, and sliding head first. In short, it is a more "realistic" brand of baseball.


Where and when does the Intermediate Division play?

South Sunrise will play Intermediate Division games on Sundays against other teams in District 30 and other districts in Orange County.  Home games are played at Santiago Middle School.


Are there practices for the Intermediate Division?

No. Since most of the players and coaches are also registered for the regular baseball season, there are no practices held for the Intermediate team. The only events for this team are games on Sundays.


Does the Intermediate team wear uniforms?

The registration fee does not cover matching uniforms. Each player will wear their respective regular season uniforms. The parents and coaches may, if they decide as a group, find a team sponsor or pay for matching jerseys.


Can a player play in both Majors/Juniors and Intermediate?

Yes, in fact we encourage it!  The South Sunrise Intermediate team(s) will only be playing on Sundays and there are no practices, so there will be no conflict with the Majors or Juniors schedule.  Please note that pitch count limits and days rest requirements will count games played in both divisions.


Will my child need a new bat for the Intermediate Division?

The new bat standards being adopted by Little League baseball also apply to the Intermediate division. See USAbat.com for more information.
