Registration FAQ

Where is SVLL?

South Vancouver’s home diamonds are at Memorial South Park, at the corner of 41st Avenue and Ross Street in Vancouver.

When does the league play?

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.

What equipment does my child need?

SVLL provides players with team uniforms and baseball bats to use during games. 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  support). Baseball cleats are strongly recommended for Minors, Majors, Juniors, and Seniors. Note that soccer cleats cannot be used for safety reasons. Juniors and Seniors will need to supply their own baseball pants.

Are tournaments included with my registration?

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.

2020 & 2021: while pandemic protocols are in place, South Vancouver Little League will not participate in tournaments hosted by other leagues. 

Are All-Stars or Selects tournaments included with my registration?

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.

How do I receive my uniform deposit refund

Uniform deposits are returned after confirmation of uniform return from the end of season, or end of all-stars or other League post-season play. 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.

Are there any road games?

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 exclusively interlock games and tournaments.

2020 & 2021: while pandemic protocols are in place, no games are played against other leagues. 

How often will I have a game?

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.

How often are practices?

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.

When are practices and games?

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.

Who can play in SVLL?

We welcome all children between the ages of 4 and 12 during the season who live or attend school within the SVLL boundaries. Battalion Juniors and Seniors ages 13-16 may play with SVLL if in the District 6 league boundaries (South Vancouver, Trout Lake, Hastings, New Westminster, and Richmond).

What is South Vancouver Little League?

South Vancouver Little League (SVLL) is a volunteer-run non-profit baseball league for boys and girls ages 4-16. Children are placed on teams of about 12 children (fewer for BlastBall) and given the opportunity to develop and practice baseball skills and play games with our teams in the league and division.
