About Fort Hunt Little League - Mission Statement

Mission Statement

The Mission of Fort Hunt Little League Baseball is to provide youth baseball in a safe and positive environment to build character and to promote good sportsmanship and respect for others so players will grow into productive adults and become leaders of the community.

About Fort Hunt Little League

Founded in 1956, Fort Hunt Little League is chartered by Little League International, a not-for-profit tax-exempt organization founded in 1939 and located in South Williamsport Pennsylvania. Little League International operates under a 1964 federal charter signed by the President of the United States.

Fort Hunt Little League Baseball also operates under the aegis of the Fort Hunt Youth Athletic Association, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit tax-exempt organization founded in 1959, which provides organized youth sports in the historic Fort Hunt community of Fairfax County, Virginia.

Message from the FHLL President

Welcome to Fort Hunt Little League Baseball

We’re pleased to host one of Northern Virginia’s highest quality baseball programs for children ages 4 through 18. We continue a long tradition of community baseball in the historic Fort Hunt area of Fairfax County dating to our founding in 1956.

Fort Hunt Little League Baseball is dedicated to preparing youngsters to meet the challenges of adulthood by developing physical and mental disciplines essential to success through competitive sports and the great game of baseball.

We play baseball three seasons starting with spring baseball followed by end-of-season Fun Tournaments for kids who want to play in post-season tournament-style play against other District 9 teams followed by Little League All-Star play plus clinics for youngsters aged 5 through 8 in summer.

Fall Ball typically starts a week or so ahead of Labor Day and continues into mid-November. Registration for the Spring Season opens January 1 and typically closes around the third weekend in February except T-Ball which remains open until the third weekend in March or so. Registration for Fall Ball typically opens July 1 and closes before Labor Day.

Fort Hunt Little League Baseball is successful only because of the thousands of volunteers who have served in various League positions both large and small over the years. You can volunteer when registering your player or by contacting me or any other board member.

Contact me if you need additional information.

Best - Barry

FHLL Baseball Divisions

Fort Hunt Little League Baseball Divisions

Fort Hunt Little League Baseball is organized into Divisions. Because we want each player to have a great experience, we try to balance skill levels of each team so each Division is tightly competitive. Each Division is generally ordered by Baseball Age, school grade and skill level. We understand the importance of playing with friends and give every consideration to parent requests for Division placement although the overriding consideration is to place players at the level where they can be competitive, learn to love the game, and develop their skills.

Descriptions of each Division are available nearby in "League Descriptions" on the left vertical menu.

Target ages for the various Divisions are shown below. T-Ball and the A-Ball Divisions are designed for kids to play with their friends so we place players in those Divisions by age and by parent request.

Players in the AA Division and higher, however, are placed by an assessment process followed by a Player Draft. We sort players by Baseball Age, school grade and assessment score and designate each player for a particular Division. Managers within each Division then select players at a Player Draft one at a time in turn until all players in that Division are drafted. Parent requests for a particular Manager or for certain teammates are made available to the Managers at each draft although Managers are always free to draft any player on the Division's draft board.

FHLL BASEBALL DIVISIONS – GENERALIZED AGE DISTRIBUTION

  • T-Ball — 4, 5 & 6 year olds
  • A Division — 6, 7 & 8 year olds
  • AA Division  — 7, 8 & 9 year olds

Volunteer Spotlight

All local Little Leagues are driven and sustained by volunteers, and the volunteer category that we (and other locals LLs) struggle to fill more than any other?  Not surprisingly it is the role of Umpire.  Please consider volunteering for this most critical role - see the FHLL Umpire links on the FHLL page for information about upcoming training opportunities in March that will help prepare you for this rewarding and exciting position.
