South Vancouver Little League Baseball: Welcome
South Vancouver Little League
Youth baseball in Vancouver since 1956
Park: South Memorial Park, 41st Avenue & Ross Street
Mail: PO Box 60222 Fraser PO, Vancouver, BC, V5W 4B5
Player assessments are very important to the league and enable the coaches to observe the skill level of each player. They are used in the player drafts to create balanced teams.
Assessments for the Rookies, Minors, and Majors divisions will take place before teams are drafted. BlastBall and T-Ball players do not participate in the assessment process.
Saturday, March 3 or Sunday March 4
- Majors: 10am at South Memorial at Joan & Phil Lake Diamond
- Minors: 12pm at South Memorial at Joan & Phil Lake Diamond
- Rookies: 1pm at South Memorial at Rookies Diamond
Players should bring their glove and batting helmet and protective cup. Assessments are held rain or shine. Assessments for all players start at the times above; expect assessments to take two hours. Attend only one of the assessment dates.
Please note that a player less experienced at the game may will be encouraged to play with others at the same level - playing with others of a similar skill level makes baseball more fun and enables new players to learn the basics without feeling intimidated while increasing player safety.
Players will only be placed in a higher division based on assessment results.
As mentioned last year, Little League is adopting a new standard for approved bats starting with the 2018 season.
Non-wood and laminated bats used in Little League must have the USA Baseball logo signifying that the bat meets the USA Baseball Performance Standard and having a diameter no larger than 2 5/8 inches. All BPF 1.15 bats used in previous years will be prohibited.
