We'd like to extend a personal thanks to all of you who Volunteer their time to umpire for Stilly Valley Little League.

OUR league desperately needs more volunteer umpires! The league will provide a shirt, hat, indicator and brush for all volunteers and there is equipment for everyone’s use. Our program would not be as successful as it is if it wasn’t for the dedication of our volunteer umpires. While other leagues around the nation have succumbed to the need to hire paid umpires, Stilly Valley has consistently been blessed with moms, dads, and kids who willingly give up a little more of their free time to provide quality umpires for all our games. This website is dedicated to you, thank you for your support. So set up a link to this site and check back often to see the latest schedule and to get the latest scoop on what’s going on in the league!
