Though not required, players and their coaches are urged to elect to use these devices for player protection. Note: all batters and base runners must wear helmet with approved face protection.

Is ELAA affiliated with the Limestone County Schools?

ELAA is an independent, volunteer organization. We use playing fields and gyms from the East Limestone High School and Creekside Elementary School and work closely with them on issues pertaining to the fields. ELAA is responsible for the general maintenance and upkeep of all fields when we use them. ELAA members are asked to help in the upkeep of all fields before and after each game or practice.

Who takes care of the scorebooks, scoreboard, entry fees at gate, concessions, trash removal, etc?

Since ELAA is an all volunteer organization with limited funding, we ask that all members and parents of the association to volunteer to help out with these needs. We supply the referees and umpires but the other functions simply don’t get done on their own and it is up to everyone to help out in any way you can. See a coach or an ELAA officer to find out what you can do to help. Simply, without volunteers we can’t supply the sports activities for yours and our children.
