In a positive move for both organizations the membership from Centennial Little League and Sunridge Little League have agreed to amalgamate their respective Little League Association territories pending approval from Little League Alberta, Little League Canada and Little League International.
“We believe that announcing this at this time is an important step for both organizations to ensure that all our member families and organizations can begin planning for the 2022 season and the registration window which will open on December 1, 2021. After both our membership voted overwhelmingly to move forward with this amalgamation, we have begun submitting the necessary information with Little League Alberta in order to secure their approval. While there is a lot of work to do, we wanted to get moving as quickly as possible so we can ensure that everything is ready for all the kids for the 2022 Spring Season.” said Shawn Botterill the newly elected President of Centennial Little League.
“We have worked closely with Centennial in numerous ventures over the past couple of years, and feel that this is an exciting announcement for all our players and their families. By joining our two organizations we will create a larger player pool to enable the growth of baseball and wider range of development and camaraderie within the joint association. We feel that the fit with Centennial is perfect as we both share similar outlooks into the value of the players, and putting them first.” said Crystal Wyatt, President for Sunridge Little League
The Amalgamation was approved by Little League International on October 4, 2021.
The boundaries of Centennial Little League have expanded and will now include the following communities:
There will be more announcements over the coming weeks and months as operational details are sorted out to fully amalgamate these 2 organizations
Country Hills Village
As a previous Player with Sunridge, and as part of the amalgamation transition, we have set up the Judy Smith Memorial Fund.
The purpose of this fund is to provide financial assistance for previous Sunridge families to offset the Fee differential between Sunridge’s traditional rates and the new Centennial rates. While this fund can not last forever, we believe we have provided enough funding for 2 years to allow families to plan and budget accordingly. Should you want to access this fund to assist with your registration fees, please email the Registrar in advance of submitting your registration so that we can make things as easy as possible for everyone!

We understand there might be a little bit of hesitation as to whether or not to register your kids for baseball this year. COVID hasn't been easy, but if there are any questions you might have concerning the upcoming baseball season, we would still love to hear from you.
We want to assure you as a Board, we are diligently working behind the scenes on different scenarios to provide the best and safest environment for our kids to play. Last year we were thrown a couple of nasty curveballs, but in the end, we think we had a homerun of a season.
Please send any questions you have to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will begin to post questions and answers on our website. If we don't have an answer for you, we will do our best to get one for you as soon as more information becomes available.
