Fall Ball Preview


Hello FCKLL Family,

Fall Ball Registration opens soon! We’d planned to go live today but our vendor is experiencing a glitch related to their interface with Little League International… we will let you know as soon as we’re open for business. See below for more info as you make your plans for Fall, and we’ll be in touch about registration ASAP.

Before we all sign up for Fall, let’s take a moment to congratulate our three All Star teams for representing Falls Church so well in Tournament play. Our three squads went a combined 7-7 (.500) in Pool Play, which is pretty solid vs. the very best of the best in our District.

The Majors squad under Coach Herlands concluded their campaign on Wednesday with a 2-2 record. BOTH losses came in extra innings vs. Vienna. It took Vienna 17 innings to eek out two narrow victories – we were this close to undefeated! Fabulous job by Coach Julie, staff, and players. We can’t wait to see where your baseball careers take you!

Happy Summer and see y’all for Fall Ball – preview below and stay tuned to sign up!

--Kirsten & all at FCKLL

 

FALL BALL DEETS

·      Fall Ball is more casual than Spring.

·      Standings are not kept and there is no post-season tournament.

·      We focus on development and trying different positions.

·      Players have an option to “play up” a level (based on what is available to you by age, within Registration) – that doesn’t mean you will remain in that division next Spring.

·      Fall Tee Ball is all one level, rather than the Rookies and Sluggers breakout we offer in the Spring. Players born before 9/1/18 may play Tee Ball this Fall.

·      We can work around other sports/activity commitments – we want to see everyone out sharpening their skills in September and October.

·      Fall Ball costs less than Spring, and scholarships are always available (email me if you are interested).

FALL BALL SCHEDULE

·      Sun 8/21: Reg closes for Single A+

·      Sun 8/28: Reg closes for Tee Ball

Prior to the season getting underway, we host optional group practices in lieu of formal assessments. Come to what you can. This is a chance for Managers to get a sense of Fall players in an effort to form equitable teams.

·      AA/AAA: August 25, 27, 30, Sep 1

·      Challengers, Tee Ball, and Intermediate will not have group practices. Start dates for these levels are TBD.

We need lots of volunteers in the Fall. Coaching experience is NOT required. Please register as a volunteer in the system once Registration opens. If you are ready to sign up now or have questions, let me know via email.
