It’s that time again!

With not a cloud predicted in the sky for this weekend, Davis Little League is conducting tryouts Saturday and Sunday — then again Wednesday evening.

Tryouts are for AAA and Majors divisions, so 9-year-olds need to attend only if they want to be considered for the AAA draft, according to DLL officials.

Special times are assigned, based on a player’s last name. On Saturday, the schedule for both American and National divisions looks like this:

* Noon-1 p.m.: 12-year-olds and spring-returning 13-year-olds (A to K).

*1-2 p.m.: All ages (A-E).

*2-3 p.m.: All ages (F-K).

Sunday:

*Noon-1 p.m.: 12-year-olds and spring-returning 13-year-olds (L-Z).

*1-2 p.m.: All ages (L-R).

* 2-3 p.m.: All ages (S-Z).

Wednesday:

6-9 p.m.: All remaining players.

Check-in times are just before the scheduled tryouts, which take place at the Little League Complex at F Street and Covell Boulevard.

Registration goes through Wednesday and can be done online.

Teeball cost is $130, while Farm, AA, AAA and Majors is $185 and Juniors is $280.

Meanwhile, there is still room at the Davis Little League Baseball Bootcamp, run by UC Davis players and coaches Jan. 27-30.

Farm and AA players go from 4 to 6 p.m. with the upper-division athletes working out from 6 to 8 p.m. Space is limited to 25 in each division.

UCD Director of Baseball Operations Jimmy Meuel will oversee the coaching.

Open only to DLL-registered kids, the camp will “run through the basics to shake out the cobwebs and help your player prepare for the season,” according to the organization website at www.davislittleleague.org.

Batting, throwing and fielding will be covered and the league promises a player-to-coach ratio of nine-to-one.

The cost is $60 and signups are being taken at the three tryout dates.

Softball clinic

Girls in grades five through eight are invited to a free softball clinic on Saturday, where they will receive coaching from the members of the UC Davis program.

The event runs from 1 to 3 p.m. on Community Fields A and B (near the Davis Art Center).

For more information, contact Jennifer Harrison at 530-304-2349.

Five Starz volleyball

The Five Starz Volleyball Club’s Starlets program is accepting registration for the 2014 season, which begins Sunday. The Starlets offer an opportunity for young volleyball players who are not able to participate on travel teams but who would like to be a part of a competitive environment.

The program is open to players in grades four through nine, and participants will be split into fourth- through sixth-grade and seventh- through ninth-grade groups.

There are no tryouts for the Starlets program, which is designed to improve each player’s overall skills in a fun and competitive environment.

Beginning on Sunday, the Starlets will practice once a week for 12 weeks. The cost of $300 for all 12 sessions includes a T-shirt.

For more information, email fivestarzvolleyball@gmail.com.

Winter water polo

The Davis Water Polo Club’s winter session continues this week at Schaal Aquatics Center on the UCD campus.

The sessions run Tuesday and Thursday evenings with the younger group — third through eighth graders — taking the pool at 6 p.m. before the high-school aged players go at 7:30 p.m.

For more information, contact coach Jamey Wright at ncwright0300@sbcglobal.net or 530-758-1234.
