We believe in low fees so leagues have more money in their fund to deal with important items such as operating costs, equipment, and safer facilities!
Chartering with Little League is really very simple. For many leagues, the chartering process takes less than two weeks.
The World Series
A true World Series is played in four divisions of baseball and four divisions of softball. Making it to the grand daddy of all youth sports world championships, the Little League Baseball World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, happens to 16 communities around the world each year.
The words “Little League” have symbolized the very best in youth sports for more than six decades. Little League is played in more than 70 countries, and all 50 U.S. states. This year, 40 Little League Baseball and Softball games of the International Tournament will be televised nationally on ESPN, ESPN2, or ABC. No other youth sports organization comes close.
Little League pays YOU for travel
Once you advance, all expenses are paid by Little League to travel to Canadian Championships as well as World Series for a nominal entry fee.
as a province we receive a preferred rate.
Always on duty
Little League has a free, full-time rules interpretation service by telephone and e-mail.
Little League offers clinics and seminars at various locations around the country each year for league officers, managers/coaches, and umpires.
Through the Little League International Congress, local league volunteers have a democratic voice in changes to the rules and regulations.
Little League has a Challenger Division for physically and mentally challenged players, giving every child a chance to be a Little Leaguer.
No Little League program can “raid” players from another Little League program. In fact, the same rules and regulations apply to all chartered Little Leagues worldwide.
A healthy combination
At its core, the purpose of Little League is to provide a safe, fun, wholesome combination of recreation and competition to players ages 5-18 through regular season play among local teams. For those players whose skills are more advanced, the Little League International Tournament provides the largest sports tournament in the world, with more than 40,000 games played each summer on the road to the various World Series tournaments. (Compare this to “travel ball” or “elite teams” for which parents pay exorbitant amounts of money, and players get burned out.)
Education programs – Little League offers a variety of easy-to-implement programs for local leagues that help keep children safe, and make the game more fun for everyone: A Safety Awareness Program (ASAP), and the Little League Manager/Coach Education Program, just to name two.
Through the innovative Little League Child Protection Program, Little League was the first national youth sports organization (and remains the ONLY national youth baseball/softball organization) to mandate background checks on managers, coaches and other key volunteers. But it doesn’t stop with a mandate. Little League provides leagues with advice on how to perform the checks simply, and affordably (free, in most cases).
Little League offers many levels of support. Starting at the League level where the President and his/her Board operate the league as they desire within the general parameters of the program. Close by, the District Administrator and his/her staff, are there to ensure each league has all their concerns and questions answered in a timely fashion. The District Administrator also operates and oversees the playoffs in each District. Little League Saskatchewan offers programs and support for all of the leagues in the Province. Little League Canada coordinates all National business, including the travel for all teams to National Championships. Little League, Inc. provides a successful infrastructure to oversee the entire program worldwide. All of these groups provide excellent support to make each player in the program receive a memorable and satisfying experience.
