Foothills Little League (FHLL) endeavors to provide a safe, fun, and inclusive combination of recreation and competition for players ages 4-16 through regular season play among local teams. The regular season runs from April to June with a focus on skill development, equality and most importantly, fun. FHLL is a member of Little League Alberta District 3.
For those players whose skills are more advanced and who wish to play a more competitive season of baseball, the Little League All Star program continues into July and early August. All Star teams are chosen based on an evaluation process and continue the focus on skill development and fun, but with a greater emphasis on player positional play and team success.
Registration for 2018 opens in January

(Baseball Age 8 - 10) Games are Tues/Thurs at 6:30. This division has kids pitching and full baseball rules, scoring and games. Teams will play an in-league round robin. Players should also expect at least one and sometimes two practices per week, as determined by the coach and a 70% time commitment is required for games and practices. We do our best to keep these practices on a regular schedule and they will take place at the same diamond locations as games.
*11 yr. olds may play in this division instead of moving up to the more competitive Majors divisions.

(Baseball Age 11 and 12) Historically, this division has been tiered with the top percentage of players evaluated placed on Majors teams and the rest placed on Nationals teams. Players will be assigned to either a Majors or Nationals team after skill evaluations are completed.
Game nights vary based on interlock schedule vs. teams throughout north Calgary and Airdrie. Players should also expect at least one and sometimes two practices per week, as determined by the coach and a 70% time commitment is required for games and practices.

(Baseball Age 13 and 14) Game nights vary based on interlock schedule vs. teams throughout north Calgary and Airdrie. Teams are placed in Tier 1 or Tier 2 and play on 90 foot base pads. Previously the Tier 2 teams played on 80 foot base pads, but it has been determined that all Junior players will now play on 90 foot base pads. Many leagues do not have a diamond with 90 foot base pads, in which case teams will play on 80 foot base pads. Practice nights are coach scheduled.
