About Carleton Russel Little League

Carleton Russell Little League (CRLL) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing youth between the ages of 5 to 16 an opportunity to play baseball in a positive, constructive environment. CRLL is a charter member league of Little League International, through Little League Canada.

Our Mission is to help and voluntarily assist kids in developing the qualities of citizenship, discipline, teamwork, and physical well-being through the medium of baseball with guidance and exemplary leadership from our community volunteers. By espousing the virtues of character, courage, and loyalty, the Carleton Russell Little League program is designed to develop superior citizens rather than superior athletes.

The Little League philosophy is based on building a strong sense of community and bringing kids out to play baseball in their local parks.


As a rural league, our local associations try to extend their reach out into our local communities, often sponsored by local firms and businesses and supported by great fans and families, to create that strong sense of community across the league. CRLL encompasess the following baseball association:

  • The community of Greely and Village of Metcalfe – Greely Hawks Baseball Association (GHBA)
  • The community of Russell – Russell Minor Baseball Association (RMBA);
  • The community of Embrun -- Embrun Minor Baseball Association (EMBA);
  • The Village of Casselman -- Les Voltigeurs de Casselman (LVC);
  • The City of Clarence-Rockland -- Clarence-Rockland Baseball Association (CRBA); and,
  • The Town of Hawkesbury -- Hawkesbury Minor Baseball Association (HMBA),
