Founded in 2014, the Copperheads were created to provide advanced Falls Church Kiwanis Little League (FCKLL) players the opportunity to play travel baseball. We maintain a unique relationship with FCKLL, supporting the league with extensive volunteer support, sponsorship, and donations.

The Copperheads travel baseball program offers teams at the 9U, 10U, 11U, and 12U levels, playing both a Spring and Fall season, with practices through the Winter off-season. Our organization offers a balanced mix of local games as well as tournament opportunities. 

We spend Spring and Fall baseball seasons playing in the Northern Virginia Travel Baseball League and in tournaments throughout the mid-Atlantic.

Copperheads membership opportunities are open to all players, and all genders, within the Falls Church Kiwanis Little League (FCKLL). Players from outside FCKLL will be considered for membership, but preference will be given to those participating in FCKLL. 

The Copperheads are committed to supporting our local Little League, and requires all players to play in their local Little League (or other house-league equivalent) during Spring season, in addition to the Copperheads.

Our players are chosen in a competitive selection process. We demand high standards of integrity and good sportsmanship from the players who join our team – a standard that we apply to our coaches and expect from our parents, as well. Our focus is not just teaching better baseball. Our goal will always be the development of life skills and promotion of educational achievement within the context of a competitive, team-focused baseball program.

Off-seasons, you will find the Copperheads playing other sports like soccer, basketball, golf, tennis, football, swimming, and wrestling. Most of our teams run a light Winter practice schedule at a local indoor facility. The Fall Season requires the heaviest commitment from players and families and the expectation is that Copperheads Baseball will take priority over other sports and activities in the Fall.  During the Spring Season, Little League/House League activities take priority over Copperheads activities, but players and families can still expect non-conflicting Copperheads practices and games.

On and off the field, our players are expected to exhibit leadership skills, showing enthusiasm in spite of adversity, resilience, excellence in teamwork, and maturity
