Operating under the direction of the City of Glen Cove Parks & Recreation Department, Gold Coast Little League is scheduled to kick off their 2019 season with a parade and Opening Day Ceremony on Saturday, April 13th (weather permitting). All players in competitive leagues are guaranteed a 12-game season plus playoffs, with games to be played at John Maccarone Memorial (City) Stadium in Glen Cove.

The leagues’ 2019 registration dates are scheduled on Saturday, January 12, 19 and 26th from 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon in the main chambers at Glen Cove City Hall, 9 Glen Street, Glen Cove. “The mission of our league is to provide a wholesome, healthy activity for children using the ball field as a classroom to instill discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play,” said Darcy Belyea, Director of Glen Cove Parks & Recreation.
