About Capitol City Little League

Capitol City Little League has been serving the Washington, D.C. area since 1986.

The organization, which is a 501(c)(3), is run completely by volunteer support and has a long history of parents working closely with the league to introduce and teach baseball and softball to our children.  Each season, more than 500 children participate in CCLL.

Capitol City Little League has Spring and Fall seasons with 6 co-ed baseball divisions for kids ages 4 to 14 years old, and 5 softball divisions for girls ages 5 to 14 years.

Programs are open to children and teenagers who reside, or attend school, within specific boundaries in Northwest Washington.

Our league focuses on both teaching fundamentals and having FUN!
