Welcome to South County Little League (SCLL). We are pleased to be one be one of the most comprehensive and growing baseball programs in Northern Virginia. We have programs for boys and girls age 4-14. SCLL’s mission continues to be:
“Through baseball South County Little League strives for the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage, and respect for authority so that our players are stronger and happier children and will grow to be good, decent, healthy, and trustworthy citizens.”
I am pleased to announce the completion of major renovations of all our fields at Lower Potomac Park. South County Little League now has some of the finest baseball fields in the district. Our relatively new South County Little League concession stand at Lower Potomac Park continues to be a huge success and we are excited about the new menu items and specials planned for 2015.
South County Little League is successful only because of the thousands of volunteers who support our players. If you think you can find some time to help out “your little league” please contact me or any board member.

Overview of the 8-10 and 10-12 District 9 Fun Tournaments
South County Little League Families,
Any Majors, AAA, AA, or A player that is League age 8, 9, 10, 11, or 12 may play in the District 9 Fun Tournament. To sign up click on the ‘Register Now’ green button on the right side of our website, scllva.org.
These teams are made up of ALL players that wish to play. While a tryout may be used to assess the level of the players, all players wishing to play, WILL play. NO one is cut.
The District 9 Fun Tournament teams may practice a couple of times, but the primary objective of this tournament is to just PLAY BASEBALL. The District 9 Fun Tournament is a double elimination tournament that will consist of games at various fields throughout District 9. This tournament is for those players that want to play a little more baseball beyond the SCLL regular season and playoffs.
The Fun Tournament begins June 17 and depending upon how far your team goes is usually over in about ten days or so.
There is a $20 player registration fee payable to SCLL for Fun Tournament participation that includes uniform costs. It is South County Little League policy that no player will be denied participation based on ability to pay -- scholarships are available.
Players CANNOT play BOTH All-Stars and the District 9 Fun Tournament. Any Majors, AAA, AA, or A player that is League age 8, 9, 10, 11, or 12 who has not been selected to an All Star team may play in the District 9 Fun Tournament.
If you are interested in being on one of the three allstar teams, then please complete this form and return to: South County Player Agent Robert Gauthier (
) and Ken Rozelsky (
) NO LATER THAN Saturday, May 23, 2015. (You may also drop off the completed forms at the SCLL snackbar).
Overview of the 9/10, 10/11 and 11/12 All-Star Teams
Any Majors, AAA, or AA player that is League age 9 or 10 is eligible for the 9/10 All-Star Team. Any AAA or Majors player that is league age 10 or 11 is eligible for the 10/11 All Star Team. Any Majors player that is League age 11 or 12 is eligible for the 11/12 All-Star Team.
These teams are by selection only. All-Star selection is done using an intricate process, which, depending upon the level, involves the vote of players, advisory committee, managers and coaches, beginning with the highest level (oldest-aged) team, the 11/12 All-Star team and working down. Tryouts for the 10/11 and 9/10 All Star teams will follow this season’s playoffs.
While it is a great honor to be selected as a member of an All-Star team, there is also a substantial commitment of time and effort required in order to participate. The All-Star season ends whenever tournament competition ends. For all levels, state tournaments will take place in July and regional tournaments will take place in the last week of July or the first week of August. For the 11/12 competition, tournament play could continue through the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA in mid-August.
Additional information can be found on the cover letter to the form linked above to indicate your interest in trying out for any of the all star teams.
