Whittier Little League is currently taking registration for the Senior Division -- league ages 14 (not currently playing Juniors) to 16 years old.  

The last day of registration will be 5/9 in order to form teams. Please register online by selecting the Registration tab on the league's website, whittierlittleleague.org, and following the prompts. The registration is a two-step process; 1) creating an account; 2) registering your player.  

We need all registrations submitted and completed as soon as possible in order to notify District 56 of how many teams WLL will have. WLL currently has 1 manager(s) to lead our team(s) and a draft will be conducted the weekend of 5/12 (pending number of teams).  Practices will begin shortly thereafter.  

A MANDATORY MEETING FOR ALL PARENTS AND PLAYERS is scheduled for 5/9, at 2pm, Orchardale snackshack area. This will also be the LAST date to register. You will be required to fill out all remaining paperwork and pay a registration fee of $130.00 at the meeting. During the meeting we will discuss how the Senior Division works (it is different from the other divisions) and answer any questions. The season will begin on 5/16 and end on 6/6 (season dates are subject to change per District 56). The season will consist of 10 to 12 games.

Whittier Little League is very excited to announce that WLL now participates in the “Amazon Smiles” donation program. Most all of us shop at Amazon personally and some perhaps professionally.

Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to Whittier Little League whenever you shop on AmazonSmile.

AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service.

Below is the link. Check it out for yourself and forward it on to families and friends as we approach the Holiday Shopping Season. We’ve also posted the link on our website, Facebook and Twitter pages.

(You may notice the link is currently under Little League Inc., which is in the process of being changed to reflect Whittier Little League)

Ralphs Community Contribution Program

Ralphs Community Contribution Program

If you have participated with Ralphs Community Contribution Program in the past, now is the time to renew ~ it must be done after September 1 of each year.  If you have not, this is a great way to send a donation to Whittier Little League each time you shop at Ralphs.  Last year, Ralphs donated $400 to Whittier Little League through the Community Contribution Program (based on what Whittier Little League Customers purchased) and another $1,000 through the Sponsorship Program.


The easiest way to create a link between your card and Whittier Little League would be to print out the attachment so the cashier can scan the bar code on the bottom ~ this only needs to be done once a year.  If you use this method, the name of Whittier Little League will not appear on the receipt.
