Starting in November 2019, West Van Little League will be using Teamsnap for registration.  Most returning players will already have a profile in Teamsnap that can be used to start the registration process.   If you are new to Teamsnap, you will need to set up an account for your player.  As this is the first year using Teamsnap for registration, there may be some implementation issues.   If you have questions or concerns, please contact registrar@westvanll.ca

Photo Policy

WVLL uses social media and this website to share information throughout the year and to build a sense of community.   We frequently take photos at our baseball events.  We take care with photos taken and do not post player’s names with photos.  Please email registrar@westvanll.ca if you’d prefer no photos of your child be used.

Regular Season

The Regular Season runs from April to mid-June.

Player Evaluations

We try our best to assign players to Divisions and Teams which the League feels is best for the player.  We take into account past playing experiences, parents’ input, and annual Player Evaluations.  Please note that evaluations only apply to players for Minors and Majors divisions.   Evaluations typically take place in February before the spring season starts.

Postseason

Postseason play typically runs from mid-June into July, culminating in the Little League World Series in late August.

West Van competes in the North Shore D5 Little League with Highlands, Lynn Valley and Mount Seymour with our 9/10 and 11/12 Allstar teams.  We also have postseason Select 8, Select 9 and Select 11 teams that play post-season tournaments.

Registration for Postseason is typically opened in early-mid June.

Summer Ball

Our summer programs will be focused on skill development, with six weeks of practices run by professional and volunteer coaches.   If you registered for the regular spring season, you may roll your fees over to the summer season and you do not need to register again.   Please email president@westvanll.ca and treasurer@westvanll.ca if you are interested in participating in the summer season.   If you do not participate in the summer season, you can email to request a refund of your spring fees, or you can carry them over to next year.

Fall Ball

Fall ball is a fun league that runs in September and October.   This is for players who just haven’t had enough baseball and don’t mind getting a little wet when the weather turns.   We play against teams from the other North Shore Little Leagues, and sometimes teams from beyond the North Shore.

Registration for Fall Ball is typically opened in August.
