Castro Valley Independent Sports League: CVI News: About CVISL


About CVISL: Our mission statement.


Castro Valley Independent Sports League -- often referred to as CVI, or CVISL -- is dedicated to providing an opportunity for kids ages 5 through 18 to play baseball.  In 2008 Flag Football was added.  In 2012, CVI joined with Pop Warner to create the P.W. Gladiators Football expansion team in Castro Valley. 

Being an independent league, CVI has no residency requirements and therefore draws from Castro Valley, Hayward, San Leandro, San Lorenzo, and other nearby cities. (P.W. does have some boundry restrictions.) The goal of the league is to provide a positive atmosphere that provides kids the opportunity to participate in a team sport and interact with other players. All players have an equal chance to play amongst others within their skill level and learn the game of baseball, flag football and P.W. Football. Most importantly, everyone has fun.

CVI has several locations for games and practice. Canyon Middle School is utilized for the Senior, Intermediate, A, B and some C Division games. Marshall School is our main site and used exclusively by the Junior divisions for the baseball programs. Marshall School is also the  host site for Flag Football games.  Strobridge School and Redwood Alternative H.S. are our practice facilites.
