Dear ERLL Families,
We hope that you are all doing as well as you can be during these trying times. Please know that we are thinking about our players, families, community, and that we miss everyone.
2020 Regional and World Series Tournaments
As you’re aware, on April 30th, Little League International CEO, Steve Keener, announced that Little League was cancelling the 2020 Regional and World Series Tournaments. With this cancellation came a directive for our District 13 and local Leagues to follow their respective State and Local Governments’ recommendations and guidelines regarding any restart of the season.
ERLL Spring Season Update
Our season is not cancelled.
Currently, the permits for our Rio Vista and Rio Del Valle fields have been suspended until the fall season. We are aware of other local League’s posted restart dates and we are in communication with Rio School District to determine if our permits can be released earlier. However, as of right now, the plan is to begin the season this Fall.
The Board is evaluating how this season restart looks in terms of practices, game schedules, distancing requirements and enhanced cleaning measures, all under the requirements of Government policies and ensuring everyone’s safety. We expect we’ll have further details to share later this summer. We will also be discussing options as to how we can apply 2020 Spring season registration fees towards 2021 Spring Season registration fees if there are families who are not able to play in our program this Fall.
Thank you to all our volunteers, partners, sponsors and every one of our families for their patience and understanding while we have been working through the issues and delays in the 2020 Little League Season. At the end, we all just want to hear play ball!
We look forward to the day we see you again at the great fields of El Rio Little League!
Stay safe, stay healthy.

The health and safety of ERLL volunteers, players, and families is our top priority. Out of an abundance of caution, in response to the guidance provided by the California Department of Public Health, and also based on the recommendation from Little League International, all ERLL games and practices are cancelled until April 13th.
While each community is being affected differently by the coronavirus, the Little League International Board of Directors as well as the ERLL Board, feel that it is in the best interest of our ERLL families to temporarily suspend the season.
Should Little League determine that the recommended delay of the season extend past April 13th, ERLL will provide timely notification and information, and we will do our best to keep all informed.
We appreciate your patience and understanding.
El Rio Little League Board

Welcome to El Rio Little League...Home of the Champs!
ERLL is a youth BASEBALL organization for boys and girls ages 4 to 14 years (ages 15 and 16 welcome after high school baseball completes).
Since 1958, ERLL has been a chartered member of Little League International and is one of nine leagues in the Ventura County, District 13 area.
We continue to be one of the largest baseball leagues in the Oxnard area, boasting over 35 teams in eight divisions each Spring season.
From the Board, we thank all ERLL players and families for being a part of our strong tradition season after season!
NO PARKING IN RED ZONES. UMPIRES WILL BE FORCED TO STOP LIVE GAMES UNTIL CARS ARE MOVED. CARS MAY ALSO BE TICKETED AND/OR TOWED.
Please also respect the designated Board Members parking spots. Board Members spend many hours volunteering their time to the league and only ask for the parking spots in return. This also allows Board Members to travel back and forth to Rio Vista and RDV quickly.
Information and updates will be posted regularly on our website. News will also be shared via email. Become a "Member" on our website (click here) to receive all email notifications. Also, be sure to follow ERLL on Facebook and Instagram.
