About Zionsville Little League
ZLL is an all volunteer organization serving youth from ages 6-18 years old with baseball and softball programs in Zionsville, Indiana and adjoining townships. If the child is a resident of Zionsville, or if your child attends any school (public or private) located in Zionsville, then the child is eligible to play baseball or softball in ZLL. In addition, if the child is a resident of an area that is not served by a Little League organization, then the child may participate in ZLL.
ZLL is a 501(c)(3) organization – this means any donations to ZLL are tax deductible on your federal tax returns if you itemize your deductions.
Teams play and practice at Lions Park—a private park owned by the Zionsville Lions Club. A large part of the ZLL budget goes toward maintenance (mowing, trash pickup, cleaning restrooms, etc.) of the playing fields and facilities during the spring, summer and fall.
Parents, family members, and friends are encouraged to volunteer and support the players. Good sportsmanship is stressed for all—spectators and players alike.
Purpose of Zionsville Little League
Adapted from the Zionsville Little League Articles of Incorporation (1974):
The purposes for which Zionsville Little League is formed are:
To implant firmly in the children of the community the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage and respect for authority, so that they may be well adjusted, stronger and happier boys and girls and will grow to be decent, healthy and trustworthy men and women.
To achieve this objective, the Zionsville Little League will provide a supervised program of baseball and softball games regulated by the Rules and Policies of Little League Baseball, Incorporated. Directors, officers and members shall bear in mind that stressing exceptional athletic skills or the winning of games is secondary and that the type and quality of leadership extended to the boys and girls is of prime importance.
The McKamey/Holmes Award
This award is bestowed upon an adult who volunteers a great deal of time and energy to Little League; a person who, by example, teaches the children in the community the values of sportsmanship, team play, and respect for their peers.
