Our Story

The Lake in the Hills Youth Athletic Association (LITHYAA) is a community-based youth sports organization offering 5 to 18 year-olds an opportunity to learn and play baseball or softball. Founded in 1952 as Lake in the Hills Baseball, this volunteer organization continues to offer an outlet for kids and parents from Lake in the Hills, Huntley, Crystal Lake, Algonquin, and beyond to develop athletic skills, socialize with their peers and have some fun at the ballpark.


Brian Krueger Memorial Tournament

Each year the Lake in the Hills Youth Athletic Association holds a tournament to celebrate the life of Brian Krueger and to raise awareness of pediatric brain cancer. Fifty percent of the profits from this tournament are donated to organizations like the Midwest Children's Brain Tumor Center to support the patients and families battling pediatric brain cancer.
