Little League Baseball Canada
The Little League Program has millions of players and more than one million adult volunteers in more than 80 other countries around the world.
During its nearly 80 years of existence, Little League has seen more than 40 million honored graduates, including public officials, professional athletes, award-winning artists, and a variety of other influential members of society. Each year, millions of people follow the hard work, dedication, and sportsmanship that Little Leaguers® display at our seven baseball and softball World Series events, the premier tournaments in youth sports.
Little League was first chartered in Canada in 1951 and was the first International Little League charter ever granted.
Little League Baseball involves more than three million youth worldwide in over 75 countries. It is the largest amateur volunteer sport organization in the world.
Volunteers give their time to provide a healthy and wholesome, family oriented activity for the children of their community. Little League Baseball Canada has only two full time employees. The managers, coaches, umpires, league administrators, etc. are all volunteers from within the Canadian Community.
There are more than 35,000 youth in Canada who are part of Little League Baseball Canada and who play the grand old games of baseball and softball during the spring and summer. They are supported by more than 100,000 parents, relatives and folks of their communities, big and small. Imagine! Almost 150,000 or more Canadians involved each year in sports that brings out the best in all of us.
