Why Choose Little League?
Little League offers Baseball and Challenger division programming for boys and girls age 4 to 16 in the Calgary area. Little League is the world's largest youth sports volunteer organization.
A few facts: Over 5,000 children play Little League Baseball in Calgary and surrounding communities. There are more children per capita playing Little League Baseball in Calgary than in any other city in North America. The Challenger Division gives our city's physically challenged kids a great setting in which to experience the excitement of playing the game.
So you think Calgary's playing season is too short to produce good ball players? Chris Reitsma, Tim Nelson and Mike Soroka would disagree. Chris was drafted in the first round by the Boston Red Sox in the 1996 MLB draft, Tim was drafted in the seventh round by the Baltimore Orioles in 1998 MLB Draft and Mike was drafted in the first round by the Atlanta Braves in the 2015 MLB draft. There are many other Canadian (and Calgary area) athletes playing baseball in colleges throughout North America and most have their roots in Little League Baseball.
Wondering about the quality of ball? Since 2001, teams from District 8 Little Leagues have played in several Canadian Championships and appeared in 3 World Series. We offer progressive programming ensuring the development of the young athletes is first and foremost.
What's in store for this upcoming season? A lot of FUN! Our leagues offer regular house league play each spring, with many weekend tournaments. Little League Tournament Play (All-Stars) takes place in the summer months after our regular season concludes. All of the leagues are looking for coaches and umpires. They provide volunteer screening, clinics and training. Little League Baseball is the best game in town!
