Purpose - Mission - Vision


We at Santa Paula Little League are dedicated to supporting the development of life skills and personal character in the youth of Santa Paula. We strive to teach sportsmanship and integrity through the game of Baseball.


Little League Baseball, Incorporated is a non-profit organization whose mission is to “promote, develop, supervise, and voluntarily assist in all lawful ways, the interest of those who will participate in Little League Baseball and Softball.”

Through proper guidance and exemplary leadership, the Little League program assists children in developing the qualities of citizenship, discipline, teamwork and physical well-being. By espousing the virtues of character, courage and loyalty, the Little League Baseball and Softball program is designed to develop superior citizens rather than superior athletes.

Character. Courage. Loyalty.
