The official home of Raccoon Valley Little League and Bandits

About our divisions

Raccoon Valley Little League provides baseball for boys and girls from ages 4-18. We offer the following divisions:

T-ball - up to age 7
Coach pitch - 5-7 years old depending on your child's experience
Kid/Coach pitch - 7 and 8 years old - this is a two year program and the first time kids pitch and catch!
AA - 9 and 10 years old - full on baseball with umpires, kids pitch and catch with no physical help from the coaches. Player evaluations are required prior to being placed on a team
AAA - 11-13 - a three year competitive yet fun program, a time to hone your skills. Player evaluations are required prior to being placed on a team
Jr/Sr - 14-18 - for those kids who still want to play. We've combine the two divisions and play with Beaverdale Little League. The season ends with a Round Robin tournament.

All of our divisions are baseball. Unfortunately there is no softball offered at RVLL. We encourage girls to play; but please be aware that we don't have that many and your child may be the only girl on the team.

We do not guarantee any team or coach requests. It really depends on the amount of coach volunteers we receive. All teams are coached by parent volunteers. If we cannot get enough coaches, teams will be larger.

It is the coach's responsibility to reach out and communicate with the teams. Communications go out to the coaches by the league reps and RVLL President. You can access your team by logging in to our website and going to Team Central/Team Directory. For AA and AAA we require player evaluations and team/coach requests are even less likely.

If you are able to be a coach, assistant coach, a team parent or volunteer in any capacity to help your team be successful, please complete our 2-step volunteer application. Once you complete the application, you will then be invited via email to complete a form for a criminal background check. All volunteers who have passed the background check will receive a badge and lanyard.

Registration opens beginning of December and closes beginning of March.

Spring 2023

Raccoon Valley Little League offers baseball to boys and girls ages 5 to 18. We do not offer softball, so all teams will follow Little League Rules for baseball.

For detailed information on the divisions we offer, please visit our Little League Rules page.

If you have any questions regarding registration, please visit our FAQ page.

With over 500 kids that play at RVLL and games that run from late April to end of August, there are many things that need to be done. We are run completely by volunteers and we need more people to help out. We are now requiring everyone who registers to volunteer a total of two hours per season that you play. Volunteering can be as simple as picking up trash in all dugouts and around the fields after games, to coaching, to being a griller one day at the concession stand. If you find that you cannot volunteer for two hours, a $50 fee will be charged to your account. A Sign Up Genius link will be sent to everyone who marks "yes" on the Volunteer Requirement question in order to pick the shifts you want to work. Again, we are only asking for a minimum of two hours of your help.
