About Ivy Hill Little League

Ivy Hill Little League was founded in 1998 with three teams as part of West Ward Little League. The league formally chartered 8 teams with Little League International of Williamsport, PA in 2007. The goal of this league, as it has always been, is to support the development of all children in their love for the game of baseball.    

The core tenants of the program are:

•    We are parent inclusive and aligned to our children and our community 
2.  Diversity 
•    We believe in all children should have the ability to play baseball and develop friendships through a team 
•    Combining the neighborhoods of South Orange, Maplewood, Vailsburg and Ivy Hill, we will develop a stronger community that is unified in       our children’s enjoyment in baseball   
3.   Player & Coach Development 
•    Develop all players, regardless of ability 
•    Player and coaching clinics before and during the season 
•    Goal of regular weekday practices with game play on weekends

One of the remarkable features of Ivy Hill Little League is the solid core of volunteers serving as managers, coaches, executive board members, team moms, and fundraisers.   

Most of our Coaches and Managers have extensive experience guiding player development, team management and game strategy. In addition, they practice Ivy Hill Little League's philosophy that winning is every player getting better, having fun and coming back to play again!
