Life Lessons in Little League

Lessons from Little LeagueIt’s really important to me that my children enjoy playing sports and understand what it means to be part of a team. One of the things I love about living in America is all the sports children have the opportunity to play. My boys can take part in baseball, basketball, soccer, swimming, hockey and many other sports.

This season, two of my boys played baseball in the Chester Valley Little League (CVLL). Oliver was a River Bandit and Max was a Mudcat.

From the CVLL mission statement:

Lessons from Little League

It is the mission of Chester Valley Little League (CVLL) to offer, implement, and maintain supervised youth sports programs under the Rules and regulations of Little League Baseball. The objective of CVLL is 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 children and will grow to be good, decent, healthy and trustworthy citizens.

The CVLL’s commitment to helping families build these positive character traits in their children is an example of why I like having my children participate in these sports. I especially like that the CVLL is a community-run organization with parents as the volunteers. I have met so many wonderful people and watched so many inspirational and incredibly patient parents coach my boys’ teams. It’s been a wonderful experience, not only for my children but for me as well.
