Welcome to South County Little League (SCLL). We are pleased to be one of the most comprehensive and growing baseball programs in Northern Virginia with programs for boys and girls age 4-16.
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.”
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 any board member.
I look forward to working with you to continue the efforts to make SCLL a league parents can be proud of having their kids participate in.
This year South County is doing something different than it has ever done before. We have restructured our fall ball to be a training opportunity for anyone who wants to play baseball. In the past, it was a joint effort of the Little Leagues in our area: South County, West Springfield, and Central Springfield. Families had to drive across town multiple nights a week and on weekends for games against other leagues.
This year, we decided to focus on the fundamentals and give all our South County players an opportunity to learn and grow together. We will be holding stations/clinics during the practice sessions and the players will rotate through those stations so throughout the course of a week, a player will cover areas such as pitching, catching, fielding and hitting. Yes, there will be coaches on each field running the drills and practices at each station, but we will be asking parents, grandparents, and guardians to pick up a glove and come out on the field and interact with our players and our coaches and help us help your children. This way we can all learn and grow together. We are hoping this will allow our league to develop a consistent terminology and playing approach, as well as helping new and old players learn skills they may not have had a chance to try before and as an extra benefit we hope to build unity and friendships too. Along those lines, there will still be games on Saturdays. All games will be held at our South County fields at Lower Potomac (unless you fall into the 2 divisions that are exceptions -se below). The games will be players school yard style. These means the games will be held at a set time and when the players show up, they will be divided into teams by the coaches. This will give players the opportunity to play with different coaches and different players each week. This is a wonderful opportunity since Little League now requires our Spring teams in the Majors divisions to all stay together throughout their time in Majors. This change for fall ball provides players an opportunity to play with friends and classmates they might not get to play with in the Spring.
The intent of Fall ball has always been to be instructional and developmental. The volunteer board for SCLL voted to make this change as we all feel this is an excellent way for the players to improve their skills while focusing on playing together. This is a CHANGE and it is NEW so there will be growing pains and learning curves. We ask your patience as we all work through this together keeping in mind, we are all here for the ultimate good and happiness of our children as we help them learn to play and love the game of baseball.
Although these changes will affect the majority of our players, 2 divisions will remain the same. T-ball players and Juniors players will remain the same. T-ball will have their own coaches and practices and will play interleague games with one another on Saturdays. Juniors players will also continue to play as usual and they will have games with other leagues and their games will be held on weeknights and weekends as the schedule gets organized with the other leagues.
The players who will be affected by this change are players who are 7, 8 or 9 (who will ALL play in the MINORS division) and 10, 11 or 12 (who will ALL play in the MAJORS division). Players league age 6 and below will play T-ball and players age 13 and above will play Juniors.
Registration fees will still cover players receiving a uniform which will consist of a hat and a jersey or shirt. We are still working these out with our vendor to figure out how to accomodate the changes in how we are playing. We hope to make them reversible so depending on what team the players get picked for each Saturday, they will just flip their shirt or jersey to the appropriate side.
Registration fee is $120
Parents interested in coaching or managing should indicate that as they register their child.
If you only play baseball in the spring you are missing half of the action. Play Fall Ball and see how the other half lives.

We are in MAJOR NEED of BOARD MEMBERS. We have many people who moved out of the area with military relocations and many players who have aged out of the league and the parents are moving on to other things. Please consider stepping forward to help your child play baseball and contribute to South County Little League as a board member. We are a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization. We are in major need of Information Technology help to work on the website and registration system which is hosted by League Athletics, we also need social media experts, a players agent, commissioners, tournament coordinators, and more! As always we need managers, coaches and assistant coaches and most of these do not serve on the board as dictated by Little League rules.
