For information about any of these programs or to register for any of these programs, please contact them via the information included below:

La Habra City Little League (Baseball)

The La Habra City Little League District 56 consists of La Habra, as well as parts of La Habra Heights, Brea and Whittier. Founded in 1959, the league hosts spring and fall seasons for ages four through 18, with approximately 800 children playing each season. LHCLL also holds a

District 56 Challenger League (Baseball)

District 56 Challenger League is designed specifically for children with special needs. The Challenger Division was established in 1989 as a separate division of Little League to enable boys and girls with physical and mental challenges, ages 4-18, or up to any age, to enjoy the game of baseball along with the millions of other children who participate in this sport worldwide. Today more than 30,000 children participate in more than 900 Challenger Divisions worldwide. One of the benefits of having a Challenger Division is that it encourages the use of "buddies" for the Challenger players. The buddies assist the Challenger players on the field but whenever possible, encourage the players to bat and make plays themselves. However, the buddy is always nearby to help when needed Challenger District 56 encompasses all 11 leagues in our district and 7 cities-which include Brea, Whittier, La Habra, Placentia, Fullerton, Hacienda Heights and Yorba Linda.

Low Income Sponsorship Application

The City of La Habra offers sponsorship opportunities for youth who would like to participate in these sports programs, but because of limited resources, are not able to afford registration. Applicants must meet the federal low income/poverty guidelines listed on the application. A limited amount of funding is available, so requests are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Because of the many requests and limited resources, we may need to limit the amount of the scholarship to a portion of the registration fee. Please note that if you are applying for a sponsorship for more than one child in your family, you must fill out an application for each child. Download a copy of the scholarship application (PDF).
