Kensington Little League is the oldest, and at one time the largest little league organization in Western New York. We are a chartered non-profit organization to help and voluntarily assist young inner city boys and girls in developing the qualities of citizenship, discipline, teamwork and physical well being through the medium of baseball with guidance and exemplary leadership. We strongly encourage honorable achievement in every field of human endeavor, and encourage our children to believe that the ideals and disciplines they demonstrate on the baseball diamond, will carry over and assist in providing for them a successful life. By impressing upon our young males and females the virtues of character, courage, loyalty, and perseverance, our Little League program is designed to develop superior citizens rather than superior athletes.  oldest, and at one time the largest little league organization in Western New York.
 
Our local program is made possible by many adult volunteers from within our community. Some are the parents of players and some are not. These volunteers give freely of their time as Board Members, coaches, umpires, division heads, groundskeepers, etc. with one goal in mind, that of making the program a big success.
 
Teams are formed by age group and (or) skill level in March. Play begins in April and continues through the middle of June. Thereafter, select teams play tournament and All Star games in June, July, and August.

Teams meet two or three times a week after school and on weekends for games and practices. The days and times vary from week to week according to field availability and, of course, weather.

In all age groups, teams are organized and supervised by an adult called a COACH. The League Comissioner chooses the coaches pending the passing of a criminal backround check.

Playing rules are the rules of baseball as modified by Little League International to suit the needs of youngsters. Twelve-year-olds, for example, pitch from 46 feet, rather than 60, and bases are 60 feet apart, rather than 90. The Board may also elect to utilize certain local rules.

Again, Kensington Little League Baseball operates as a non-profit organization, therefore, gifts to the league are tax deductible and graciously accepted.
