2018 Spring Program

The 2018 Spring Program is available online as well as the programs from the past several years.

Opening Day and Fundraiser

In just 6 days will be Opening Day!  This Saturday, April 14th at 9a will be the Opening of CVLL's 27th season at Witmer Heights Mennonite Church.  We look forward to seeing you there.  Please plan to have your player there around 8.45a to meet up with your team along the 1st Base line near the outfield entrance to the Witmer 1 Field.  We’ll begin promptly at 9a.  Please don’t park in the front of the church as it is reserved for WHMC.  Additional parking can be found at Locust Grove Mennonite School across the street.  We’ll have a great Opening Ceremony and then get you off to games starting at 10a.

With Opening Day this coming Saturday, that means it’s time to turn in your Sub Sale forms and money.  Please coordinate with your coach to turn in your forms and money on Saturday.  We have included the forms (Order Form, Flyer).  We appreciate how hard you all have been working to sell subs on behalf of CVLL.  This is a huge fundraiser for us that helps keep the registration costs down, fields in good working order, and other expenses with providing baseball to the youth of CV.  We ask each family to sell at least 5 subs, or you can still pay the opt-out fee of $25.  There will be rewards for the top selling team across all three levels and for each individual seller in Tee Ball, Rookies, and Minors.  Let’s break some sales records!

Warm weather and sun is coming (at least we hope).

Field Day!

Just a reminder that field day is this Saturday, March 17th starting at 8a.  We say it every year so we we'll say it again, many hands make for light work.  With enough volunteers, we can knock it out in just a few hours.  If you can come for 1 hour or 3 hours we'll take the help.

Minors parents can head to Witmer Heights and Tee Ball and Rookies parents can head to Smoketown Elementary.  Bring rake, shovel, gloves, wheelbarrow, trash bags, and anything else that will help us spread diamond tex, clean up leaves, and clean up the fields.

See you there!

CVLL Field Day / March 17, 2018

We have postponed our annual field day to Saturday, March 17th.  Though we didn't get the snow on Wednesday, the ground is really too soggy to do the maintanence this coming Saturday.

Our annual field day helps us make sure our fields are prepped and ready to go for the start of the season.  Many hands make for light work and with a good turnout it takes just a couple of hours to get our fields all ready to go.  Bring a garden rake, leaf/grass rake, a shovel, and a wheelbarrow if you have it.  If you can help an hour or the whole time, we’d love to have you.

  • Tee Ball and Rookies Parents can meet us at Smoketown at 8a.
  • Minors Parents can meet us at Witmer Heights at 8a.

We're looking forward to seeing you in a little over a week.

CV Little League Upcoming Dates

We hope you all are as excited about spring baseball as we are.  We’ve been actively planning the season and wanted to reach out to remind you all of a couple important dates. 

Parents Meeting: March 6, 2018 @ 7p

We will have our annual Parent’s Meeting on Tuesday, March 6 at the East Lampeter Township building on Old Philadelphia Pk.  It’s your chance to meet some of the CVLL Board of Directors, find out the plans for the 2018 Season, and ask any questions.  It’s a good chance to learn how the league operates and how you can be a part of giving your player a great experience.

Coaches Meeting: March 6, 2018 @ 8p (after Parents Meeting)

Anyone looking to manage a team or is interested in helping assist a team is encouraged to come to our Coaches Meeting directly after the Parents Meeting.  We will review a few logistical items, have our safety training, and address any questions you may have as a coach.  Please make sure at least one coach from your team is present.  If you are unsure of if or how you are helping as a coach, come anyway.  Coaching is a lot of fun and easier than you think.

Available Leagues

T-Ball - Ages 5 & 6
Our focus is to introduce boys and girls to the basics of the game - hitting a pitched ball, base running, and fundamental defensive play. While sessions are non-competitive, establishing essential skills early helps improve a player's performance at the next level.

Rookie - Ages 7 & 8
Coaches will focus on individual skill improvement. At this level, players will start to pitch. Players will be introduced to competition at this level, although the main focus remains on skills development and having fun. Play is designed to give the player every opportunity to develop their pitching, fielding and hitting skills.

Minors - Ages 9 & 10
In addition to individual skills development, team strategies will be introduced at this level - the game played will resemble the "true" game of baseball. While there's an increased emphasis on competition, the primary objective continues to be the development of skills, knowledge, and enjoyment through participation.

Majors - Ages 11 & 12
At this level, most players have gained a good knowledge of the game and have developed the fundamental skills needed. Coaches continue to develop individual skills and advanced team strategies. Players at this level will refine their skills in preparation for the the next level of baseball.

Age Determination Date

For the Spring 2018 season, ages will be calculated as of August 31, 2018 (players must be 5 as of August 31, 2018). Based on your child's birth date, they will be eligible to register as follows:
