Little League season officially opens mid-April and closes mid-June. We form teams in March and most coaches will have had a practice or two before the season begins. We evaluate players in late February so that coaches can assess the skill level and distribute players evenly between teams, ensuring that teams are fairly matched.
SVLL provides players with team uniforms and baseball bats to use during games. All players will need to supply their own baseball pants. Players will need a batting helmet, glove (leather, not vinyl – you can find a good, affordable selection at most sports stores) and a jock or a jill (athletic protection). Baseball cleats are strongly recommended for Minors, Majors, Juniors, and Seniors. Note that soccer cleats cannot be used for safety reasons.
Tournaments with other leagues are at no additional fee to players, except for All-Stars and Selects. Some examples of these tournaments from previous years are on the Tournaments page.
A player must have played regular season with SVLL and meet all age and residency requirements. Players who are selected for All-Stars or Selects will be charged an additional fee to be determined during the season.
Uniform deposits are returned after confirmation of uniform return from the end of season. A credit will automatically be issued within 30 days to the credit card used to pay for registration, or by etransfer to the registration payee should the credit not process. The amount is the full deposit paid, less any unpaid fees.
BlastBall, T-Ball, and Rookies play against SVLL teams during the season. Rookies may play in tournaments during the season that are held at other leagues in the Vancouver area. Minors and Majors participate in home and away interlock games with Hastings, Trout Lake, Richmond, and New Westminster Little Leagues, as well as tournaments. Juniors and Seniors play interlock games and tournaments with other districts.
BlastBall games are held once a week, typically on Saturdays. Rookies play 1-2 games per week on weekends. Minors, Majors, Juniors and Seniors play 2-3 games per week.
There are no practices for BlastBall. T-Ball and Rookies will hold 1-2 practices per week. Minors and Majors and Juniors will hold 2-3 practices per week.
Little League baseball is a team sport and so a player’s schedule will vary. Teams play a predetermined schedule of games which will be on the web site. Each team coach organizes their own practice schedules. If a child cannot regularly make games or practices due to other regular commitments, where possible before the season start they may be moved to a team with a more suitable schedule.
We welcome all children between the ages of 4 and 12 during the season who live or attend school within the SVLL boundaries.
We welcome all players between the ages of 13 and 16 during the season who live or attend school within the boundaries of a District 6 league (South Vancouver, Trout Lake, Hastings, New Westminster, Richmond).
