In 1963, E.K. Whitener Jr. had a dream. After relocating from New Jersey to Clemmons, North Carolina, E.K. quickly realized
there was not a Little League in the Clemmons or Lewisville area for kids to participate in. With help from friends, E.K.
established Southwest Forsyth Little League and began his first term as President. In a few short years after inception,
SWFLL won its first of many NC District 2 and State Championships. In 1966, SWFLL became the first NC District 2 Little League to
participate in Big League Baseball. In the same and following year, SWFLL would host and participate in the Big League World Series. At
this time, SWFLL was considered the largest Little League in the nation.
In 1974, SWFLL added the girls softball program. After a few years, the girls would began winning NC District 2 and State titles.
In 1981, the SWFLL Major boys made it to the Southeast Regional finals (falling short one game from the Little League World Series). In 2002, SWFLL would
accomplish its greatest achievement to date. The Major boys would go undefeated in District, State and Regional Tournament play - earning SWFLL a spot in the 2002
Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA.
SWFLL is proud of its rich history and of the many volunteers over the years
whom have and will continue to make SWFLL a tremendous success.
