The Cedar Youth League has been offering baseball and softball teams to the local youth for over 50 years, and the Cedar Chamber of Commerce began sponsoring the Cedar Youth League 39 years ago!
Thousands have participated on sports teams in T-ball, Peewee, Juniors, Middle, Little League, Senior and Pony games over the years. Currently players range in age from 4 ½ to 13, as there are no Senior or Pony teams as of right now. Each team averages about 13 players.
The Cedar Youth League is part of the Leelanau Youth League which includes teams from Empire, Maple City, Lake Leelanau and Suttons Bay. Games start in June and playoffs are in August, with a weekly game.
The Little League Rule Book is followed: Values emphasized are commitment, team play, sportsmanship, and respect.
