Los Altos & Los Altos Hills Little League (Bay Area): About Our League

 

About Los Altos & Los Altos Hills Little League

 

Los Altos Little League has been providing a rewarding athletic and social experience for Los Altos and Los Altos Hills families for over 50 years. Our volunteer-supported organization is proud to provide top notch training in baseball and softball skills to kids from 5 to 16 years old. We strive to invest in fields, equipment and coach training to ensure the most professional and safe experience possible. Our coaches provide a fun, positive environment where every player feels like a valuable member of the team.

 

We offer a number of clinics, camps and other training opportunities for both players and coach volunteers.  After about age 8, all players participate in in-house tournaments, and some have the opportunity to play in post-season travel tournaments.  In 2009, our 11-12 All Stars team won the Section championship and were one game away from representing Northern California in the nationally-televised Western Regionals of the Little League World Series.

 

 

Los Altos Little League operates a baseball program for boys and girls as well as an excellent Girls Softball program. There are other baseball and softball leagues available in our town - here are a few of the things that make Los Altos Little League unique:



Baseball

Pitching Machines
For the first few years after T-Ball, kids play and practice with a pitching machine on the mound instead of having a coach or player pitch.  This results in more hittable pitches to make games more fast-paced and fun, and speeds up development of baseball skills since more plays are made per game. 

Purissima Park
By the time kids are 8, they will play most of their games at our Purissima Baseball Park. Purissima's four well-groomed grass baseball fields, snack shack, bullpens, and batting cages with professional pitching machines make it one of the best baseball experiences in the South Bay.  The kids spend many a weekend afternoon playing baseball, hanging out with friends at the snack shack, and watching the games of their brothers, sisters, friends and neighbors.

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

Softball

Neighborhood Schools
All practices and games are at Los Altos neighborhood schools:
Almond, Bullis Charter/Egan, Gardner, and Santa Rita.

Play with Friends and Classmates
Team and division assignments prioritize buddy groups to help ensure that friends play together, along with other girls from their grade and school. Our Girls Softball program is growing fast with 12 teams and more than 120 players last year and a new division for older girls added this year.

Divisions based on Experience
We generally group players into divisions based on skill and experience, not strictly by age. Younger, experienced players can play “up”, and we help girls new to softball find an appropriate division for their level as well.

Pitching Machines
For the first few years after T-Ball, the girls play and practice with a pitching machine on the mound instead of having a coach or player pitch.  This results in more hittable pitches to make games more fast-paced and fun, and speeds up development of softball skills since more plays are made per game. (Pitching skills are developed during team practices).
