Crystal Lake Little League Baseball was formed in 2011 as a result of the merger of Continental Little League and Crystal Lake American Little League. Crystal Lake Little League Baseball is the only organization in Crystal Lake chartered by Little League International, and eligible to compete in the Little League World Series.

The objective of Crystal Lake Little League Baseball is to instill in the children of the community the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage and respect. By advocating these virtues the Crystal Lake Little League Baseball program is designed to develop well adjusted, stronger and happier children that will grow to be superior citizens.

2014 Manager Feedback
The league is always seeking feedback, and our year end coaching survey is now available for your input. We enthusiastically await your response! This will help the board as we begin planning the program for next year. This is a short survey, focuses only on the coaching, and shouldn't take you more than 5 minutes to complete. If you had multiple children in the league, with multiple coaches, please take the survey for each team your children played with. Please click here to be taken directly to the survey. Please make sure to select the division and team your child played on before you begin to answer questions. In the coming weeks, we will be assembling a more comprehensive year-end league survey, allowing you an additional opportunity to provide feedback. Watch for that soon!

Your feedback is crucial to the continued success of the Crystal Lake Little League program, and we appreciate your support!
