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.

SCLL requires all board members, coaches, managers, umpires and team parents to pass a concussion education program annually prior to the first practice. In addition, parents are strongly encouraged to complete the course. By taking this free, online course and using what you have learned, you will be well positioned to improve the League’s concussion culture. Your actions will support our mission for a safe environment for young athletes so that they can stay healthy, active, and thrive - both on and off the playing field. Once you complete the training and quiz, you can print out a certificate, and submit it to your commissioner to show SCLL you are ready for the season. To access the test and useful information please use the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) below: https://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/training/index.html
What Will I Learn in This Training?
This course will help you:
Understand a concussion and the potential consequences of this injury,
Recognize concussion signs and symptoms and how to respond,
Learn about steps for returning to activity (play and school) after a concussion, and
Focus on prevention and preparedness to help keep athletes safe season-to-season.
Effective January 1, 2018, Little League International has adopted a new bat policy that will affect every bat currently used at SCLL. With the new bat standard, all currently used, Little League-approved baseball bats will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity starting on January 1, 2018.
The new bat material will change to a wood-like standard and should be out to market by September 2017. For more information, please head to Little League's FAQ page found here:
What this means for SCLL is that, while current Little League-approved bats can be used during the 2017 Little League regular season and throughout tournament play, they will no longer be approved for use starting in 2018.Please keep these upcoming bat standard changes in mind as you look to purchase new bats for the 2017 season and as, no doubt, bats begin to go on sale as word of the changes makes its way to retailers.Any bat in your possession now and any currently on the shelves will no longer be Little League approved as of January 1, 2018.
