Learn More About Our Organization
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.
District 3 Fall Ball Registration
This District 3 Fall Ball Program is designed to have ballplayers play and learn the fundamentals of baseball. The players will be rotated often and the rules are designed to move the game(s) along. The Fall Ball League will provide kids the opportunity to play different positions that they might not have played before. The emphasis of Fall Ball is NOT on winning but to develop kids into better ballplayers.
There will be no scoreboard, no standings and no season ending awards.
Our goal is more instruction and development during the fall season to help prepare them for the 2019 season
Fall Ball Season will start after the long weekend of September and run through until the 3rd week of October. (weather permitting)
Evaluations will be held over 2 weekends in August. Dates to be announced. Teams are chosen by Draft. Note: Evaluations are to try and ensure all teams are equitably distributed as much as possible and easier for coaches to make the draft.
Cost: $120.00 per player (this includes your jersey and hat to keep!)
Playing Fields: will be all over North Calgary, Airdrie and possible games in Cochrane

(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.
Diamond Locations for Minors (click on name to display map)
(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.

Calgary North Baseball League (17 to 21 year-olds)
Calgary North Baseball League was developed in 2017 as a place for baseball aged 17 and 18 year old players to continue playing after they completed Little League Seniors. It is operated through Alberta Baseball and supported by each of the Calgary District 3 associations. This year they are expanding their program to include 19 - 21 year olds as well.
BIG LEAGUE (17 and 18 years old)
At the CNBL meeting on Jan 6th it was approved that they become a stand-alone program. This means that they will require a minimum of 4 volunteers to sit on the board/committee to act as President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. If you have a player that is looking to play in CNBL this year and are interested in volunteering please contact Bill Smith at DA@AlbertaDistrict3.com .
