Carpinteria Valley Little League (CVLL) has begun gearing up for their 24th season. As a youth sport, baseball teaches numerous fundamentals that children can take with them throughout their life, according to CVLL, including teamwork, sportsmanship, hard work, playing fair, mental fitness and discipline. CVLL has an average of 285 players per season with children ranging in age from 4 to 15.
Sign-ups are still open for all divisions. The youngest players start in T-Ball and can work their way up to eventually play in the Junior Division. CVLL also has a Challenger Division which is for special needs players.
