Welcome to Bellevue West Little League

Bellevue West Little League is a volunteer-led organization providing boys and girls ages 4-14 in the West Bellevue area the opportunity to participate in baseball, softball or T-ball leagues. In 2016, we will serve over 750 young athletes in our spring and summer programs. 
Our vision is to positively impact every Little League boy and girl and the West Bellevue Community.  We believe Little League baseball is not just a game, it’s an opportunity to positively shape the leaders of tomorrow for our community.  We know that every boy and girl is a champion and our goal is for each one of them to know that for themselves.
