"with knowledge comes responsability and accountability"


You have reached Little League Baseball's, California District 40's official website.  We are located in the North-West San Fernando Valley and represent 11 Little League charters. 

Our leagues encompass the entire San Fernando Valley, Santa Clarita Valley and as far North as Frazier Mountain (select League Location tabs above).

Our Mission is to serve as liaison between the league's President and Little League Baseball, Inc. and to provide assistance, guidance,  informed interpretation of the current rules and regulations and provide current information throughout the season.  This will include changes to birth date, bat approval's and rules.

This site covers all aspects of Baseball and Softball for the current season, within the District boundaries.  Please check your league site for current information regarding your leagues activities.

This is also the site where you can learn about the best this District and Section has to offer.  District 40 is currently a part of Section II and Division III for tournament play. 

District meetings are held on the 1st Monday of each month.  These meetings are for league presidents or their approved substitute or board member.

Remember, Little League is a volunteer based organization. Volunteer your time and talents to help the children in your family and community.  Also, donate to your League and the District, so that these programs can continue.

In closing, the entire District 40 Staff welcome's you to our Little League family.  

We would also like to pay a special THANK YOU to all of the League and District volunteers, without whose dedication to the children in your communities, regular season and tournament games would not be possible.  And last, but not least, the reason why we are here.  Congratulations to all of the participating players and their parents, for trying, learning and smiling through it all. 

Good Luck!

Thank you,
