Fun and learning on the baseball diamond! Seattle Central Little League offers tee-ball, softball and baseball for girls and boys from 4 to 16 years old.

Affiliated with Little League International headquartered in Williamsport, PA, Seattle Central Little League serves kids from all neighborhoods between I-90, the ship canal, I-5 and Lake Washington. Practices start in March, with games continuing into the first weeks of June. Tournament play, which ultimately leads to the Little League World Series, begins in July.
Many kids at Madrona play with the little league. Ask around your class, get your kids and their friends together, and let’s Play Ball!
On Friday, January 16, Seattle Teacher Residency Mentor Rachelle Moore’s first graders had a special guest. United States Senator Patty Murray visited their classroom and read them King Bidgood’s in the Bathtub.
Rachelle Moore was invited to speak with Sen. Murray. Both spoke about the need to expand opportunities for every student – starting with fixing No Child Left Behind… Rachelle reinforced the necessity of using multiple forms of student data, including test data, to drive instruction and assessing the needs of every student.
