For those new to the FALL community, we hope the information below will answer your questions, provide information on updates, or lead you to the right resources. If you still have questions, don't hesitate to email the league or any of the board members. We will typically answer within 48 hours during the registration period.

2021 Registration Open: Registration for all divisions will open on Monday, January 4th.

Cost of Registration: The cost of registration for our Future Stars, Tee Ball, Jr. Cappy, and Sr. Cappy divisions is $225 for the 2021 season.  The cost of registration for AA, AAA, and Majors divisions will be $275.  The cost of registration for our 50/70 Intermediate division is $125 for the 2021 season.

Registration late fees: Due to the significant administrative burden caused by late registrations, FALL is continuing with its registration late fee for the spring 2021 season. The registration late fee of $50 will be applied for all 9 - 12 year old players who are registered on or after March 1. The registration late fee of $50 will be applied for all 5 - 8 year old players who are registered on or after April 1. There are a few reasons for the late fee. For our 9 - 12 year old players, we need to have them organized for evaluations, which are typically held at the end of February/beginning of March (stay tuned on how evaluations will work this year given no access to gym space).  And for all players, we typically plan out the number of teams per division and coaching staffs based on the numbers at the close of registration (which drives things like uniform orders, scheduling, etc). If players are registered on time, we can optimize the size of the team rosters and coaching staffs, which enhances the experience for everyone. Too many late registrations typically lead to overly large team rosters, which detracts from the experience for all players in the age group by limiting playing time and opportunities. The main purpose of the late fee is therefore to encourage players to register on time, so we can deliver the best experience possible for all players. Late registration thus really does impact the League as a whole, not just your player! (Please note: Late fees do not apply to our Intermediate 50/70 division.) 

Registration scholarships:  FALL doesn’t want the registration fee to prevent a player from participating in any baseball season. If the registration fee is a challenge for your family, please contact us and we will handle the request as discreetly as possible. Emails can be sent to [email protected]

COVID Plan:
  The FALL board continues to prepare for a “normal” Spring season, with the understanding that nothing is normal right now.  We have invested an enormous amount of time and money to ensure that we are complying (and exceeding) all of the state, local and national guidelines for COVID and will continue to be vigilant in attempting to stay in front of the issue.  With that said, we have no idea what the next few months will look like and how this all plays out – so please be patient.  We will find a way to play baseball if/when the State tells us we can and make sure it’s a safe and memorable experience for all of the kids.  In the event the season does not take place (hard to even write that), we will of course refund the money or offer credit for future seasons….but we would prefer not to think about that at this point.  

Field Situation:  The status of Gould Manor remains uncertain and is something we are closely monitoring and discussing with the town.  As of now, the expectation is Gould will NOT be ready for play in the spring season – and while that poses some logistical challenges for scheduling, town field issues will not have an impact on our spring season.  With that said, we cannot guarantee what field each age group will be playing at until we have more clarity and understand the field permit situation from the Town.  

Player eligibility: FALL is open to all players born between September 1, 2007 and August 31, 2016 (Little League ages  5 - 13 years old) who live within the Dwight, Mill Hill, Osborn Hill, Riverfield and Sherman school districts.

Schedule and descriptions for each of our divisions: FALL runs 8 different divisions in the spring! From Future Stars (for 5-year olds) all the way up to Intermediate 50/70 for 12-13 year olds. Click below for a description of each division along with general information on the schedule. For example, AA/AAA/Majors will all begin before Spring Break with a couple weeks of games while the younger divisions will begin the first weekend after Spring Break.  

Division Descriptions

SportsConnect $3 Service Fee: When you register you will notice one of the changes implemented by Stack Sports is to add a $3 service fee to all orders. FALL does not receive any portion of this service fee. 

Volunteer with FALL: Like all Little League organizations, FALL is led and run by parent volunteers. Of course we need coaches and managers, but there are so many other areas we need your assistance with as it relates to organizing this great league. You will be able to register as a volunteer as part of your player's registration. Please note that if you would like to be considered for one of our manager or coaching spots you MUST register as a volunteer as this will submit you to the background check process which is REQUIRED for all of our managers and coaches.
