2019 Stars of Tomorrow

2019 Stars of Tomorrow League

The Stateline “Stars of Tomorrow “League is a joint effort by the Stateline Sports Group. The goal of the "Stars of Tomorrow" league is to provide a venue for primarily the recreational and low (Class C) softball teams. This league is currently a joint effort between  Stateline Fastpitch , Roy Gayle Girls Youth Fastpitch, Poplar Grove Power, Sidekicks, & the Poplar Grove Power Girls Fastpitch programs. With the cooperation and efforts of our participating teams, and programs we are able to put together a league to where the teams have the opportunity to play multiple teams during the course of a season instead of playing the same team over and over. Each team will play about 25 games during league play, mid season tournaments, and the end of the year championships.  Leagues are established as a home and away schedule  put together for each age group. Each team will play their league games along with the option of participating in our pre-season Mother's Day Smash, our mid-season "Stars of Tomorrow" tournament, and a season ending league championship series. In addition our annual All Star night is played at the end of the summer season. Standing will be kept throughout the season with all teams being seeded into the end of the year championship tournament.


Opening night will be on Friday May 10th. Hononegah high School will be playing Belvidere High School starting at 5 PM so it is a great opportunity to come out and watch them play. All teams participating in the league are welcome to participate. There will be a photography schedule for all of the Stateline teams and any independent team that needs one. The evenings schedule will be as follows:

6:45 Team Line Up
7:00 Welcome
7:05 National Anthem
7:10 Announcing of teams
7:20 Recognition of Dignitaries
7:25 introduce the Board
