Dilworth Little League

About Us

Our History

Since 1951 the Dilworth Youth Sports Association (DYSA) has been Charlotte, North Carolina’s premier recreational youth baseball organization. Our Little League affiliation began in 1953, and 2023 represents our 70th year as a Little League partner. We take considerable pride in the quality of our programs, coaches and volunteers.

Dilworth Today

DYSA offers baseball for players between the ages of 5 and 18. For players in the age group 5 to 16 we offer Little League baseball, and for players between the ages of 17 and 18 we offer Babe Ruth League baseball. We also offer softball for girls between the ages of 6 and 14. We have a Spring and a Fall Season and post-season tournaments throughout the summer.

DYSA Board

We would like to thank all of our Board members and volunteers for everything that they do. Without them, the Dilworth Youth Athletic Association would not be what it is today. Do you have a suggestion, complaint or compliment you need to pass along? Contact the appropriate Board member and you’ll get the help you need.
