The official home of Raccoon Valley Little League and Bandits

Why RVLL?

There are so many baseball options. Why Raccoon Valley Little League? 
The RVLL mission is to develop playing skills, sportsmanship, camaraderie, and having fun! 

What sets Little League apart from other organizations? 

  1. LEGACY– Since its founding in 1939, Little League has grown to 2.4 million children in 80 countries building leadership, character, courage and loyalty each year. Learn more about the league’s history at LittleLeague.org.

    Did you know? RVLL will be celebrating 65 years in operation in 2020 and is considered one of the oldest Little Leagues west of the Mississippi River. Our first field was located at Grand and 31st Street. 
     
  2. COMMUNITY – Little League has always focused on neighborhoods and community inclusion. Every player gets to play. And as a non-profit, volunteer-run organization, we build long-term relationships with families and leaders in the community. Learn more about why it's important at LittleLeague.org.
     
  3. COST – Because of our long-term commitment to our local communities, we maintain our own Little League fields and infrastructure so fees remain low. Travel/tournament teams cost significantly more because families must cover the costs of finding fields and teams to play. RVLL has made a substantial commitment to keeping league fees affordable – we keep our fees low, we offer payment plans and we offer full scholarships to any child thanks to generous donations by our community.
     
  4. MEMORIES – Many of those serving on the Board of Directors are former RVLL coaches and some were even players. Our hope is that today’s RVLL players will grow into tomorrow’s RVLL coaches and board members!  

Games and Practices

Games for our older players start the last week of April. Our younger players start the first Saturday of May barring any weather event.
Games are held Mon-Thurs evenings and Saturdays. Teams are rostered throughout April and then a schedule is built. During registration we do not know what days kids will be playing until the schedule is built.

Teams and schedules, once created, can be found on our web site and you can also download the GameChanger app which also allows you to follow along on scoring, if someone on the team takes score. Coaches will determine practice schedules. Coaches must reserve field time for practices. It is suggested that coaches use same time/day for practices to make it simpler in reserving a field.

Our AA and up divisions are called by umpires. Our A division is the first time kids will play in the pitcher and catcher positions (all catching equipment must be worn). Coach Pitch and T-Ball do not have players in the pitching or catching positions.

For the first time our A division includes 7 and 8 year olds to give players more time to learn the strategy and develop skills before moving up to the AA division.
