About Northwest Washington Little League

Our Vision

Founded in 1989, Northwest Washington Little League (NWLL) provided supervised baseball and softball programs in the northwest corner of the District of Columbia under the rules and regulations of Little League International, and in accordance with the following principles:

All participants shall bear in mind that the creation of a healthy competitive environment that fosters the values of teamwork, sportsmanship and citizenship is of prime and paramount importance; the attainment of superior athletic skill and outcomes of the games are at all times incidental ad secondary to the education, development and well-being of the children.

NWLL operates as a non-profit educational organization. No part of the net earnings of NWLL shall inure to the benefit of any private individual.

Our Philosophy

The Northwest Washington Little League (NWLL) will provide an environment where our players are encouraged to improve their skills and thus, more thoroughly enjoy the game. Our teams and coaches will be supplied with the training and support necessary to help our kids become better ball players, competitors, and people.

This approach continues a long tradition of NWLL producing players that have gone on to be successful at the highest levels of competitive baseball. This includes college baseball, the professional ranks, and even the Major Leagues.

More importantly, NWLL has helped its players build confidence in a competitive setting, and aided in strengthening their character, by instilling a work ethic and providing players with a sense of sportsmanship and fair play.

Our coaches are the backbone of our league. Creativity and efficiency on their part is of the utmost importance. We will utilize our practice time wisely. The more reps our players receive, the better players they will become.

Parental support is critical. Our parents provide the means and encouragement to have their children attend practices, games, and workouts, so the kids will have an opportunity to improve their skills.

In games, our players will be aggressive. They will compete no matter what the situation or the score. Our pitchers will work quickly and aggressively in the strike zone with the intent of forcing contact. Our hitters will be aggressive at the plate. Our fielders will be ready, with a “want the ball” attitude. Our players will do all this while maintaining the proper respect for their teammates, coaches, the opposition, and the game.
