Welcome to CLL!
Chesterfield Little League was founded in 1988 with the intention to provide a safe, fun and competitive place for the youth of our area to play baseball & softball and grow into young men and women with a strong sense of community. We have since grown to support 800+ baseball players and an excellent softball program that supports over 200 additional players. Our program is available for players as young as 3 (must turn 4 by August 31 of the current year) thru the age of 16. We also have a
Challenger Division that supports children and young adults with special needs.
We support athletes who reside or go to school along the Hull Street Corridor and surrounding areas (see our boundary map for more details). The majority of our games are hosted at our Manchester High School Complex or Clover Hill Athletic Complex sites. Our older divisions and softball have the opportunity to play competition outside our league with other LL teams in our district.
Our season runs from the beginning of March until Mid-June with an average of 15 games.
Chesterfield Little League prides itself on providing competitive, but fair play. We re-draft teams every year, so all managers have the opportunity to draft strong teams and with the draft process team talent is evenly distributed. All players are included in the batting order and we have fair play rules so that all players receive equal playing time.
When you play for us, you aren’t playing for a team that is limited to your school. You are part of a larger community. Your player will make life-long friends with other players throughout the community not just the 12 players their age from their school.
We invest in pre-season coach training so that your child receives quality instruction during practices and games. We also provide several weeks of umpire training in order to have well run and officiated games during the season. We have 25+ board members who volunteer all year to make your spring and fall seasons a great experience for your player and your family. During all games – we have board members present at each complex to ensure things run smoothly.
We also take time for fun! We start the season with a large celebration – Friday Night Under the Lights which includes a player parade of all teams from T-ball to Senior and a big party afterward. We celebrate Home Runs and Pitching No Hitters or Perfect Games throughout the season. We take time to give back to the community thru various opportunities with Virginia Blood Services, FeedMore, etc. We end the season with Play-offs for most divisions.
Post-season play continues into the summer. Teams are selected thru a voting system that accounts for players performance every game. We send teams starting at age 8 all the way through age 18, many of these teams have a chance to play on thru state and regional competitions and then to make it to the best competition in the world – the Little League World Series!
Welcome to our family – can’t wait to see you on the fields.
