Lynn Valley in North Vancouver is known for its natural parks as it is nestled between the forested slopes of Mount Fromme and Mount Seymour. With this scenic backdrop and 60 years of baseball play in 2019, Lynn Valley Little League (LVLL) has been offering league play and post season high performance opportunities for kids aged 4-16 years who live or attend school in the Little League catchment area of Lynn Valley.
LVLL currently plays out of three, family-friendly parks that are continually active throughout the baseball season:
- Kilmer Park, a unique family complex that maintains four separate diamonds catered by its concession building (located at 1700 Dempsey Road),
- Viewlynn Park, dedicated specifically for baseball (located at 2510 Viewlynn Road); and
- Kirkstone Park (located at 2110 Kirkstone Road). Post season play takes place in June and July, while fall ball development occurs in September and October.
LVLL has a long history of player development and player inclusion that has resulted in increased player registration as well as contributed to team excellence outside of our association. We continually strive to improve upon and build on these qualities that make this a great baseball community.
|2018 Registration numbers:||No. Players:||No. Teams:|
|Rookie / Single-A||36||9|
|Minors (AA & AAA)||216||18|
|Majors (A & B)||60||5|
With the only fully enclosed batting cage of any little league association on the North Shore, LVLL players enjoy the ability to get specialized instruction for pitching, hitting, catching and general skills year round.
Minors and Majors-aged players are offered subsidized skills clinics ahead of pre-season evaluations. During the season, Minors, Majors, Juniors and Seniors teams get the benefit of having Bullpen Baseball School instructors attend at least two team practices to assist coaches.
Spring Break and Summer skills camps are also offered. LVLL also participates in a competitive Fall Ball league that provides players at the Minors and Majors divisions the opportunity to develop their skills and play against teams on and off the North Shore.
The Lynn Valley Little League Baseball Association is registered under the B.C. Society Act. Its purpose is to develop, promote, administer, and support the playing of little league baseball in the community of North Vancouver, British Columbia. LVLL is one of the little league associations that form BC’s Little League District 5.
Like most community sports associations, our directors, coaches, organizers and administrators are all parent and community volunteers. Our goal is to keep our registration fees low to ensure that all interested players are able to participate.
