FAQs

1. What is Glendale Little League (GLL) and what communities does it serve?

Glendale Little League in Glendale, Wisconsin, is a chartered member of Little League International, with participants from Glendale, River Hills, Bayside, and Fox Point, Wisconsin communities.

Nearly 400 players from ages 5 through 14 participate in 4 divisions. 

Founded in 1970, Glendale Little League teams have participated at the State, Regional, and National levels of the Little League International tournament.

We're proud of our league's success, but even more proud of the high quality young men and women who have played on our fields and represented our league so well since 1970. 

The goal of Glendale Little League is to instill a lifelong love of the game of baseball for all of our players by teaching fundamentals, stressing teamwork, reinforcing the importance of hard work and -- most importantly -- having fun!

2.  Can I still register my child if we are outside of the boundaries of the communities listed above?
