As part of the Little League® program, all of our leagues are focused on providing high-impact learning and developmental activities that shape the most formative years of a child’s life. One of the most important aspects that we must always consider is the mental health and well-being of the Little Leaguers® in our leagues and communities, and what we can do to support them. Below are a list of resources, guidance, and tools to help support the mental health and well-being of parents, volunteers, and most importantly, our players.
