Opening Day 2024


The South Vancouver Little League 2023 season kicks off at noon on Sunday April 16 with opening ceremonies to welcome all new and returning players and their families.

Opening day is for all players from BlastBall to Juniors. Coaches will line up with their players outside of the fence at the Joan & Phil Lake Diamond at Memorial South Park. Players and coaches should be in full uniform.

Ceremonies start at noon, rain or shine, so all players should be at the field by 11:45 am.

Players and coaches! Stick around after opening ceremonies hot dogs and the league photo in the outfield.

Before the Opening Day Ceremonies, there will be a South Van gear table and Equipment Swap table set up beside the concession starting at 10:30 am. Both of these tables were very popular last Saturday at Field Prep Day, so we’re bringing them back on Sunday for Part 2.

The South Van Gear table will have a wide variety of the latest apparel available for purchase.

The Equipment Swap table still has some excellent items (gloves, bats, batting helmets, cleats, baseball pants, batting gloves, etc.) leftover from last weekend. Please bring along any lightly-used equipment that no longer fits your player to donate to the table and exchange for some new-to-you gear. If you don’t have something to donate to the swap table but are interested in some of the items available, you can make a small cash donation if you like but should feel no pressure to do so – everything must go!

Umpire Clinics

South Vancouver Little League will be holding umpire clinics on April 6 for all interested players age 7 and up.

If your child loves baseball and wants to learn more about the game, this is a great opportunity for them to get involved and learn new skills.

Our clinics will cover the basics of umpiring, including positioning, calling balls and strikes, and making safe & out calls. We will also provide an overview of the rules of the game, so your child will be fully prepared to umpire games in our league. Our experienced umpires will lead the clinics and provide hands-on training and guidance to all participants. This is a great opportunity for kids to learn about umpiring and develop important life skills such as leadership, responsibility, and teamwork.

Clinics will be held Saturday April 6 at the Rookies Diamond at Memorial South Park.
