Based in lower Manhattan in NYC, Downtown Little League's (DLL) fast pitch softball program is one of the premier softball programs in New York City and the State of New York. We follow official Little League softball rules and guidelines to ensure fast moving, fun and exciting games. We are proud of developing great girls who can not only compete athletically on the field but are great people and community minded citizens as well.

Players are placed into divisions based on (1) their "Little League age" which is the player's age as of December 31st of the prior completed calendar year (before the upcoming Spring season) and (2) their skill level. Social rostering requests are taken into consideration in drafting teams for the minors and juniors minors division, but are not guaranteed.
ALL STAR TOURNAMENT TEAMS
We form All Star Teams from our Minors, Majors and or Juniors divisions to represent Downtown Little League in the Little League World Series tournament. The teams compete to win in Little League Manhattan District 23, the New York Little League Section 5, the New York State Championship, the East Regional, and finally the World Series Championship. We have had recent success including winning New York State championships at the 14u and 11u age levels.

BECOME A VOLUNTEER COACH
The program's success is all due to its volunteers. Aside from the outstanding parent volunteers, we've had alot of success with non-parent volunteers who work with our kids, including several who serve on our league's Board of Directors. We're always looking for new volunteer coaches, particularly those who with experience playing or coaching sports at the college level and beyond. We can help you find the right role with our various programs and teams depending on your schedule and availability.
Currently, we have a particular interest in finding more female volunteer coaches to teach the game and serve as role models for the girls in our program. We firmly believe that this will play a critical role in impacting the perceptions and future aspirations of our female athletes and how they see and understand leadership in the world.
