This spring, the Lambeth Little League Baseball Association (LLLBA) will begin its inaugural season, bringing with it a grassroots-level approach to teaching kids the great game of baseball. Little League baseball teaches a progression of skills while allowing young players to have fun. The focus is to foster a love for the game by maximizing touches on the ball, player participation, and the value of teamwork. It is a fun and engaging approach, which helps young people become fans of one of our greatest summer pastimes.
Co-founders Craig Cooper and Jarod Judson have made it their mission to bring baseball back to Lambeth, a community where baseball used to thrive, and where kids played with friends in their own backyards. The Lambeth business community has been incredibly supportive of this new venture, with offers for donations, sponsorships and diamonds. Practices and games will be played at the Covenant Christian school, as well as on fields located behind the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW Field). If you would like to donate, be a sponsor, or volunteer, please contact Jarod or Craig, or visit lllba.ca.
Three divisions will be offered this year: Tee-Ball, Minor Baseball, and Minor Softball (Girls). Tee-Ball and minor baseball registration is full for this season, but is accepting names for a waiting list. Registration for Minor Softball is ongoing, with a few spots open for girls aged 7-10 to complete two teams. Previous baseball experience is not necessary! Our coaches are excited and ready for the season to begin! Be part of bringing baseball back to Lambeth … remember, you don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great! Here’s to a great season!
