EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK
We want to play and hope to be able to offer baseball to our community in a few weeks. Everything we do will be allowable under current local guidelines and prudent according to common sense. We are committed to creating a great and safe experience for players at all levels.
The FAQs below represent our plans as of July 3, 2020; we will evolve this as we approach Opening Day.
What is the timeline for the fall season?
The season will run August 8-October 10.
What is the time commitment for the fall season?
Teams will begin practice August 8, and will practice 1-3 times a week until Opening Day, August 22. We know families may have other plans in August, so attend practices when you can!
During the season, you can expect 1 practice and 2 games, most weeks. The regular season ends October 3 and Championship Saturday is October 10.
My child was registered in the Spring. What do I do to register him/her for the fall?
Double A, Triple A, and Majors players can expect to hear from their Managers, asking if they plan to play this fall. All you need to do is respond to that message, indicating whether or not you want to participate. From there we will finalize teams and schedules. You will hear more from the League and your team’s Manager in July.
Single A and Tee Ball players, we will have a season for you as well! We are finalizing the schedule and rosters, please sit tight and we will be in touch soon.
My child was NOT registered for the Spring, but now we want to play. Is it possible?
Absolutely! Go to www.register.fckll.org beginning July 1. Registration for our upcoming season is open for all levels through July 24.
My child was registered for a certain level in the Spring but would have played a higher level in the fall.
Because we are “lifting and shifting” Spring to Fall, and all players missed months of development this Spring, all players will remain on their Spring teams. Players at the high end of ability at each level may anticipate being “called up” to a higher level for one or more games this season.
We asked for a spring refund, and now we want to play in the fall. What do we do?
Great to hear! If a player wants to play, we have several solutions to get them on the diamond! Due to the unique “lift and shift” this season, please contact the Player Agent at
to finalize invoicing or scholarship arrangements.
We will not be playing in the fall. How do we request a refund, or donate to the league?
We understand that in these dynamic times, priorities shift. FCKLL is here to support your family in any way we can. Please contact the Player Agent at
to request a refund or make a league donation.
Are financial scholarships available for players?
Absolutely YES! Our intent is: if a player wants to play, they play! Please contact the Player Agent at
to confidentially discuss a scholarship.
How can my family help the League?
We have many open Board positions and are always looking for coaches -- no experience required. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org (and/or scroll down to an earlier post) to see our areas of greatest need.
Naturally, our enhanced safety protocols will result in new expenditures for the League (equipment, disinfectant, etc.). We would greatly appeciate your tax-deductible donation. It's as easy as clicking "Donate" in the left navigation bar. Thanks in advance!
We want to play but we are worried about COVID. What is the League doing to keep my child safe?
We are gathering info from the CDC, State and Local Authorities, Little League International, and other leagues to put together the best possible safety plan. We anticipate spacing between players, no shared equipment, frequent hand sanitizer, no high fives, and much more. We will need volunteers on every team to assist us with this. A much more complete plan will be shared prior to the start of the season.
The League is focused on setting ourselves up for an outstanding fall season that is safe and rewarding for all players. We are a 100% volunteer-run not-for-profit, and we need your help to make it all happen. Various Board positions will be open (usually for two year terms) beginning in September.
These include President, COVID Response Coordinator, Coaching Coordinator, Assistant Treasurer, Assistant Player Agent, Assistant Secretary, Challenger Program Assistant, managers, team parents, snack bar helpers (if and when we can open our snack bar), and more! Think of all the glory that could be yours, as the next FCKLL President!
Officer slates are typically finalized in August with a vote in September. If you would like more info about any of these positions, please reach out to
We are very grateful for the local businesses that support us and help keep costs down for our players and families. Please take a look at the Sponsors list (link in left bar), and consider giving back to these organizations that generously give to us!

All young people should have the opportunity to play sports -- regardless of ability to pay.
