Little League® is available for every child between the age of 4 and 16 and extends a warm invitation to every child to go out and play, because it’s through that play that people learn, grown, and connect.

What has always made the Little League program unique is the high level of sportsmanship displayed at every level of the program, both on and off the field.

Sportsmanship will always be one of the most important pillars of the Little League program, and we hope these resources help you, your leagues, and your community share the highest level of sportsmanship every time you take the Little League field.
