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.
Little League Baseball is a non-profit organization to help and voluntarily assist young boys and girls in developing the qualities of citizenship, discipline, teamwork and physical well-being through the medium of baseball and softball with guidance and exemplary leadership. By espousing the virtues of character, courage and loyalty, the Little League program is designed to develop superior citizens rather than superior athletes.
