Southwest Little League

Serving the kids of West Seattle, South Park, and White Center since 1951


Southwest Little League's Majors program is for players from 11 to 12 years old, playing under Little League Baseball Rules and Regulations.

Games and Practices

Teams practice 4 times per week in March. When games being in April, teams will conduct 1 to 2 practices per week and play 2 to 3 games per week.

The regular season ends in early June.


All Majors players are required to attend at least 1 of the scheduled tryout sessions and enter the league draft for team assignment.

Any player failing to attend at least 1 of the tryout sessions must have a board-approved excuse in order to play and will be assigned randomly to a roster.

Game Duration

A game lasts six innings, with no time limit, as per Little League Rules and Regulations, or ends when the allotted field time is up.  Four innings (3 1/2 if the home team leads) must be played to qualify as an official game.  Only the umpire can decide whether a game should be stopped early due to darkness, weather, or concerns about field conditions.


Southwest Little League provides its teams with the equipment necessary for games and practices, including helmets, bats, balls, and catcher's equipment.

Additionally, each player should be provided a uniform shirt and hat. Parents will need to provide their player a mitt/glove, baseball pants, and cleats.

Some parents may also choose to purchase a helmet and bat for their child to use. Before shopping for a bat, however, please review the current Little League bat rules, as only bats meeting Little League safety regulations are allowed to be used.


Volunteers are the backbone of every successful Little League program. Southwest Little League is no different and has a wide range of volunteer opportunities available.

In addition to coaching roles working directly with the players and teams, help is needed in a number of baseball and other organizational functions, including fundraising, event planning, scorekeeping, umpiring, etc.

Additionally, the season-ending picnic and awards ceremony is a huge effort requiring many hands. If you have a limited amount of time but want to contribute, consider offering your volunteer efforts for that fun-filled day!

Little League encourages all parents to get involved and be an active part of your community's Little League program.
