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 4-15. 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.

When does the Spring Season Start and End?
Spring practices start 16 March. The regular season of scheduled games will run from April to first week of June. Opening Day Ceremonies will take place this year on Saturday April 11th. At Opening Day Ceremonies, all the teams are in their uniforms and march onto the Lower Potomac #5 (LP5) field as a team with their team banner. The pledge of allegiance and the little league pledge are said, there are some announcements, and an opening pitch is thrown. Then the kids are released to play their games.
When do we find out what the team assignments will be?
Teams are assigned late Feb/early March and practices will start mid-March.
When are practices and games typically scheduled?
It depends ultimately on the number of players and teams that we have. From past experience, there are typically around 1-3 events (practice or games) per week. SCLL schedules practice and game events on Tuesdays through Saturdays. Weekday events start around 5:00, and Saturday events typically are scheduled between 9AM and 6PM.
Are Uniforms provided?
Yes, they will be provided in time to wear them at Opening Ceremonies. Team Shirts, Hats, and socks are provided, but not pants. Players will need to purchase their own baseball pants on their own. They are available at Dicks Sporting Goods, or Models, or on-line. Teams can select their pant colors, so you should wait until the first team meeting to determine which pant color everyone on the team should get. For T-ball and most teams it is standard grey, but some want the option to choose white.
What are the various volunteering opportunities I can do?
SCLL is an all-volunteer leagues and all parents are required to perform some volunteer activities throughout the season. During the on-line registration process, please indicate if you are willing to volunteer as a Manager or assistant coach. Other volunteering opportunities for parents include umpiring, working in the snack bar, field setup (raking, setting out bases, applying lines), post-game field clean up, team parent (organizing team volunteering requirements), and team score keeper. This year, each team that is scheduled as the “visitor” for a game must provide one adult to work in the snack bar during the game. Team parents often agree to share this time between multiple parents during a game.
