Frequently Asked Questions

When is your season? The Little League® season typically begins with practices in early/mid-March. Regular season games begin in mid-April and run to mid-June. All-Star teams begin practice in late June and can play into late July.

When are your practices? The practice schedule is up to the individual team coaches. Typically, coaches hold practice anywhere from three to five times a week prior to the beginning of regular season games. Once games begin, practices usually fill in during the week.

When are your games? Games at all levels are held Monday through Friday at 6pm, or Saturday between 10am and 5pm. No more than 3 games per week are scheduled (2 for t-ball), unless a make-up game is played. A schedule will be provided before the games begin. No games will be scheduled during Memorial weekend in May.
