Coquitlam Little League believes in offering all players the opportunity to get what they want out of baseball; fun, friends, exercise, new experience and even scholarships. If players are not having fun, they will not show up and improve. We offer clinics and resources for players and coaches to improve their time on the field so they have a better experience off it.

2018 Bat Changes

The Little League bat rules are changing for the 2018 season. The bat changes are below. The 2017/2018 CLL Board of Directors will review this in the Fall to determine the impact and roll out at the Coquitlam Little League level. Costs to replace current team bats and grandfathering bats purchased in 2-17 into regular season play will be discussed.

Starting on January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Standard will be implemented across all Little League baseball divisions and Little League-approved bats will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity. More details, as they become available, will be provided below.
