Local Youth Organizations

Spring Lake Park Schools Community Education partners with local community youth organizations in order to make parents aware of opportunities throughout the district. Below are just a few of the organizations that exist in our community.

Blaine Area Little League

For kids ages 4-12 

Blaine Area Little League (B.A.L.L.) serves students within the Spring Lake Park High School and Blaine High School boundaries. More than 1,000 kids age 4-12 participate in competitive league play each season. Registrations open in January and the season typically runs May through July (ending earlier for younger ages). It's not unusual for kids to start as pre-schoolers and play with B.A.L.L. into middle school. Friendships, teamwork and learning to love baseball are core principles of B.A.L.L. All are welcome, and everyone makes a team.
