Huntington Valley Little League (HVLL)

Huntington Valley Little League is a non-profit charitable organization whose mission is to provide a safe, instructional, and fun environment for the children of Huntington Beach, California.  Chartered under the umbrella of Little League International, Inc., and Little League District 62 of Southern California, we share a mission to "promote, develop, supervise, and voluntarily assist in all lawful ways, the interest of those who will participate in Little League Baseball."

Our non-profit organization operates as an all-volunteer program.  As such, we rely on the support of our network of families and local businesses, as well as corporate and community sponsors. 

HVLL offers the following baseball programs: 

Upper/Lower Tee-Ball Divisions:
League Ages 4-6.The Tee-Ball divisions promote non-competitive, instructional baseball and should be viewed as such by managers, coaches, parents, and fans. The emphasis is on having fun and developing basic skills for all players. Weekly games include three innings of “baseball” in which all players have a turn to bat and run the bases. Neither score nor standings are recorded, and there are no playoffs. Lower Tee-Ball players will hit off a stationary tee for the entire season, while Upper Tee-Ball players will hit off a stationary tee for the first half of the season and face live pitching from coaches during the second half.

Farm Division:
League Ages 6-8*.The Farm division promotes non-competitive, instructional baseball and should be viewed as such by managers, coaches, parents, and fans.

It's more than just a game

We believe that Little League® is so much more than teaching kids the fundamentals of baseball. It also provides a valuable framework for teaching kids about team work, sportsmanship, how to respond to failure, how to win graciously - and perhaps most importantly - how to grow up to be responsible and thoughtful adults in their community.

Fall Ball

HVLL offers Fall Ball for players who are League Age 5-12 and affords a more relaxed atmosphere focusing on the fundamentals of baseball -- rather than on scores and team standings. Registration typically begins in mid-June and goes through the middle of August.  The season begins in early-September and wraps up before Thanksgiving.  Important information:

  • 5-year-olds must have at least one season of T-Ball experience. 
  • One game per week for 10 weeks, played on Sunday afternoons normally at either noon or 2:30 p.m.
  • Practices are usually conducted 1-2 times per week.
  • Players typically play in the division above the one they played in spring.  However, a player’s Fall Ball division will not dictate which division they play in the following spring as placement is determined by the draft.  
  • Players are not evaluated for Fall Ball so there are no tryouts.    
  • Age and residence documents are not required for Fall Ball, only for the Spring Season.
  • Registration fees for Fall Ball include a team shirt and hat.
