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 life 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 post-season tournament-style play against other District 9 teams followed by Little League All-Star play plus additional clinics for youngsters aged 5 through 8 in summer.

Fall Ball typically starts a week ahead of Labor Day and continues into early November. Registration for the Spring Season opens January 1 and typically closes the third weekend in February except for T-Ball which remains open until the third weekend in March or so and Seniors which doesn't close until the first week in May.

Registration for Fall Ball typically opens July 1 and closes the third week in August.

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

Please don't hesitate to contact me directly for 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 arranged by Baseball Age, school grade and skill level. We understand the importance of playing with friends although our primary concern 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."

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

Players in the AA Division and higher are placed in Divisions by an assessment process leading to Player Drafts. We designate plyers for a particular Division by a combination of skill assessmensts, Baseball Age and school grade.

At the Draft, Managers select players on at a time in turn until all players are taken. Parent requests for a particular Manager, Coach or teammates are made available to the Managers at each draft although Managers are free to draft any player available on the draft board.

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.
