About Germantown Little League
Germantown Little League is a community-based program offering competitive baseball and softball for all youth ages 4-18. Germantown Little League is sanctioned by Little League International. Little League Baseball is the program of choice for more communities than any other youth sports organization in the world. As a result of our affiliation, Germantown's most outstanding baseball players can aspire to play in the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
As a community-based program, GTLL is intended for and focuses on residents within the greater Germantown area. In the case of GTLL, this constitutes a boundary that primarily includes the villages of Germantown, Richfield, Colgate and Hubertus.
The mission of Germantown Little League is to teach our youth the principles of good citizenship and sportsmanship through association with the competitive sport of baseball and softball, to instill self-esteem in the boys and girls participating in the program, and to instruct them in the fundamentals of the games of baseball and softball.
Germantown Little League aspires to be an outstanding organization that provides a high-quality experience, in which every athlete:
Has fun playing the game
Feels like an important part of the team regardless of performance
Learns "life lessons" that have value beyond the playing field
Has coaches that focus on player development to teach skills, tactics and strategies of the game
We are committed to creating a culture in which coaches, parents, fans, umpires and athletes work together to achieve our mission.

Germantown Little League was established in 1973. Fireman’s park was the first little league field. Two additional fields, Kennedy and Friestadt were also used. The Juniors played at the current JV field located at Germantown High School.
The little league complex, located at the corner of Division and Freistadt Roads, consisted of a Juniors field followed by the Majors field and a few years later the T-ball field. The boys’ program included T-ball, AA, AAA, Majors and Juniors. In 1988, a concessions building was constructed that also housed a board room, equipment storage room and garage.
A few years later, Germantown Little League (in partnership with the Germantown School System) built two fields at Kennedy Middle School-Kennedy North & Kennedy South. These fields included a sprinkler system for the outfields and lights for night games. Currently, Germantown Little League and the Germantown Recreation Department utilize 9 fields throughout the Germantown area. This includes the original three fields at the Little League Complex.
Germantown Little League has excelled in tournament play. Since 1973, Germantown Little League has won many District 1 titles, and has also won a number of State Championships. Germantown Little League participation has grown tremendously. The league includes more than 650 kids comprising over 50 teams in both Baseball and Girls' Softball. With outstanding facilities, increasing participation, and a dedicated volunteer staff, the future is very bright for our organization.
