Foothills Little League


Foothills Little League fosters a safe, positive and inclusive environment where young athletes can develop their skills, build their self-confidence and make new friends, while learning sportsmanship and building character.


Our mission is to provide children in our community with the opportunity to learn and play the game of baseball in a safe, supportive and fun environment.  We strive to promote leadership, dedication and personal development through fair play, hard work and respect for others.



We offer a combination of recreation and competition for players ages 4 to 16 through regular season play among local teams.  The regular season runs from April to June with a focus on skill development, equal playing time 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.

We also offer a Fall Development Season that runs from September to October for ages 7 to 16.

Foothills Girls Baseball

- In 2023 there were 75 female players in our league and we formed all-girls teams in T-ball, Coach Pitch and Minors 'A'
- During Registration girls have the option of selecting either an all-girls team or co-ed.  We always make sure to place multiple girls on co-ed teams.
- Girls have the option of either playing in their regular age group or they can play down one year, this is the player's choice.  Please contact our Registrar if you would like to play down a year.

- Multiple former Foothills players have played on U14 and U16 Alberta Girls Teams and one former player recently played on the Canadian National Women's Team.
- In December 2023 two current Foothills Players were invited to play in the Leighton Accardo Tournament in Arizona with the top U12 Female players in North America
- Female baseball (U16) will debut at the 2025 Canada Summer Games
Recent studies have concluded the benefits of girls playing sports:
- Girls who participate in sport are less likely to be depressed, more likely to reach higher academic goals and more likely to demonstrate improved self-confidence (Merkel, 2013)
- Girls who play sport are 11% more likely to say they’re “happy the way they are(Girls’ Index Impact Report, Ruling Our Experiences, 2017)
- Statistics show that 41% of girls between ages 3 and 17 don’t participate in sports, and 84% of adult women don’t participate in sports at all.
- Girls are participating in sport at rates much lower than those of their male counterparts. (26% of 5-17 year old girls average 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity everyday vs. 48% of 5-17 year old boys*)
- If a girl hasn’t participated in sport by the age of 10, there is only a 10% chance that she will be physically active as an adult. (CAAWS, 2016)
- By the age of 14, girls are 1.5x more likely to drop out of sport than boys. (Girls in Sport Study, Gatorade, 2017)
