Coventry Little League


Coventry Little League has come a long way since its inaugural year in 1966. Over the years we have grown with the community, with deep ties to all of the Owen J Roberts School District, through the years our program has grown and evolved, but our commitment to the Little League philosophy remains: Little League is a program of service to youth. It is geared to provide an outlet of healthful activity and training under good leadership in the atmosphere of wholesome community participation. The movement is dedicated to helping children become good and decent citizens. It inspires them with a goal and enriches their lives towards the day when they must take their places in the world. It establishes the values of teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play.

Coventry Little League firmly believes that each child who wishes to play baseball or softball should be entitled to do so regardless of skill, gender, or financial circumstances. Our league will not deny any child a chance to play baseball or softball due to a financial hardship. Please contact us should you need assistance.

Coventry Little League announced the formation of our Challenger Division in 2018. The Challenger Division was established in 1989 as a separate division of Little League to enable boys and girls with physical and mental challenges, ages 4-18, or up to age 22 if still enrolled in high school, to enjoy the game of baseball along with the millions of other children who participate in this sport worldwide.  Today, more than 30,000 children participate in more than 900 Challenger Divisions worldwide.

T-Ball - Coventry Little League offers T-Ball programs for boys and girls age 4-6 that is specifically designed to provide a foundation and introduction to baseball and softball that is grounded in fundamentals and having fun.

Baseball programs for kids age 7-13 in our Training, Majors and Intermediate divisions.

Training Baseball (Machine Pitch) is for kids ages 6-7-8 and is still instructional based where coaches are in the field teaching during games.  The Machine Pitch division focuses on the fundamentals of hitting a ball at a faster and more consistent speed. At this division, the game is played on a slightly larger field. Coaches feed the balls through a pitching machine that provides the kids with a consistent, straight pitch between 38-40 miles per hour. Not to worry, however!  Kids typically do just fine at that speed after they've had a bit of practice! At this division, you truly start to experience a true game of baseball as kids begin to have a grasp of the rules and their strengths and skills are being honed. The players will learn to work together in this division and depend on one another to make plays.
