LEVELS OF PLAY

South Side Little League offers 60 years of youth baseball experience and commitment to children ages 4 to 16.  Our current roster includes more than 200 players in all divisions of play including Pee-Wee, Rookie, Minor, Major, Junior, and Girls Softball. In fact, SSLL registration numbers increased in 2016, the first increase in the last three years.

As a community anchor, SSLL routinely partners with other not-for-profit organizations to support and advance recreation, safety and education.  Some of SSLL current partners include First Step, the Police Athletic Association, and Gary Comer College Prep Middle School (GCMS).  The SSLL and GCMS partnership is now in the third year of a 5-year agreement.
