Pay it Forward

During All-Star weekend the SLJL Family will be collecting any used tennis shoes or cleats for Pay It Forward Sports. This organization was founded by an 11-year-old kid who, while visiting Africa, was asked to play soccer with some of the local children. He grabbed his tennis shoes and ran outside, but quickly realized the children there were playing soccer in their bare feet. This bothered the young boy as he knew the sand was not only hot but also full of rocks and other hazardous materials. If you know that your child will be unable to wear their tennis shoes after this summer, or are going to need to buy new cleats for next season please consider donating them to us! There will be a box for these shoes at All-Star Weekend (July 12th through July 14th).

Frequently Asked Questions

I don’t understand how the skills competitions work?
The skills competitions are held on Thursday, July 12 at South Lyon High School from 6-10pm.
There is no cost to participate.  You do not have to be there at 6pm, come any time during the evening.  This evening is open to all Junior League players, not just All-Stars.
We will have fastest around the bases, fastest pitch, home run derby and accuracy throwing competitions.  There are prizes awarded to the top 3 finishers of each competition for each house division.  There is no need to pre-register.  Just show up and have fun.  Full concessions will be available throughout the evening.

What time does my son/daughter play and what time should we arrive?
The full schedule of games is posted above.  Please plan on arriving at least 1 hour prior to your game time.  This allows for registration, photos and time for the league to honor your All-Star with announcements.  This timeline is also for the Matt Douglas and Abby Dolan award winners.

What field do we play on?  Which dugout?
When you register you’re player you will be provided all of this information in a packet.

This seems like a big event, who runs this?
Each year the 11u South Lyon Thunder boys travel baseball team runs the event.  This is their main fundraiser for the annual 12u trip for a week long tournament in Cooperstown, NY.  A full concession stand, 50/50 raffles, gift/raffle baskets, YOFresh Yogurt, face painting, balloon animals and bounce houses are all part of the fun.  The face painting, balloon animals and bounce houses are free of charge!!  This huge event is all volunteer based.

What if it rains?  
More details coming

How about pictures?
Our friends at Hot Shot Photography will be there all weekend taking lots of pictures.  These will be available after the events (the following week) on the league website for FREE!!  Download them and enjoy.

As the largest youth organization in South Lyon, this is our chance to celebrate a great season.  If your son or daughter is playing this weekend congratulations.  If your son or daughter did not get selected for the all star team, this weekend is for you too.  Come and enjoy all the fun and thanks to everyone for making 2018 another outstanding year for softball and baseball in South Lyon.
