Only 6:00 Games for Georgia Milestones testing April 13-16
Last Games May 21st
Each year since 2007, Little League Public Service Announcements (PSAs) are seen on the ESPN family of networks and used by local leagues to help further the Little League program in local communities. This campaign serves to increase interest and awareness in Little League Baseball and Softball, and to educate the public on the benefits of implementing a Little League program in local communities. This year, a new PSA will be filmed on April 25th during your local leagues scheduled games and activities. The focus of the PSA is 'community'; binding communities together. The message to be conveyed to local communities everywhere: the spirit of volunteering and supporting local youth activities.
The PSA is designed to promote the strengths of Little League, team work and benefits of membership. This PSA is not intended to highlight or bring focus to the individual league or individual players. Rather it is meant to showcase the involvement of Little League within any community. We are asking Warner Robins American Little League to assist us in representing the message of 'community' that can carry through to any league, anywhere in America.
We are excited to involve your league in this PSA commercial for Little League. You will play an important role in helping to convey the message of 'community' and belonging to a program that promotes healthy physical activity while strengthening community support and involvement.
The PSA spot will be filmed and produced by the Vault in partnership with ESPN. ESPN/the Vault are in control of all filming and will direct as such. We are requesting your assistance with distributing and collecting completed model release forms.
Please have a parent or guardian complete the attached model release form for each child they have scheduled to play on Saturday, April 25th. The forms have various sections that should be completed in their entirety in order for youth and adult individuals to participate in the shoot. Model releases will also need to be completed by all scheduled volunteers, umpires, coaches, managers, board members, or any adult who plans to attend the games that day.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING THE MODEL RELEASE
- Model release forms must be completed for all youth athletes who have games scheduled for the day.
- When completing on behalf of a minor under the age of 18, the top portion of the release needs to be completed by the Parent or Guardian of the minor. They must also sign as defined in that same section.
- ALL coaches, managers, umpires, league officers, volunteers, etc. over the age of 18 will need to complete a model release. They will complete the bottom portion of the form as an "individual participant."
