Hello Folsom American!

Happy Holidays!  The Vista Del Lago Varsity Baseball Team and their Coaches are teaming up with the Folsom Batting Cages to host a baseball camp over the holiday break.  The attached flyer contains all the details.  This is a great training opportunity for our league, and a great fundraiser for one of our local teams – a team many of our players may be part of someday.

If you’re are going to be local during the holiday break, we encourage you to take advantage of and support this opportunity.  Here’s a link to register on-online, or alternatively reach out to the Folsom Batting Cages at 916.990.3231.

IMPORTANT-PLEASE READ: League Age Determination Change for 2015
by posted 11/21/2014

To all FALL members,

Little League International has changed the league age determination effective this season 2015.   Folsom American has opened registration with the traditional age determination and now we MUST change our age determination to follow what Little League International has set forth.  The new age determination date will be December 31st, our old age determination date was April 30th.

The change will ONLY effect players born ON or AFTER January 1, 2006 who will turn ages 5-9 during the 2015 calendar year, these players will use the NEW age determination the remainder of their Little League career.   Consequently, players born prior to January 1, 2006 will continue to utilize the previous age determination date of April 30th for the remainder of their Little League career. 

Below are charts with the new age determination method.  There are two charts, one for players born before January 1, 2006 and one for on or after.  These charts are what Folsom American will use for 2015 and future years.  

As a result, several players who have already registered will have their league age changed.  Additionally, players born between 5/1/2010 and 12/31/2010 are now eligible to register and play T-Ball, formerly they had to be 5 by April 30th. 

Please email   with any questions. 

Thank you -

Registration for the Spring, 2015 Season is NOW OPEN
by posted 11/01/2014

Hi Everyone -

We are excited to provide another great season of baseball for the youth in Folsom.  Registration opens on Saturday, November 1, 2014.  It will be facilitated through the Folsom American Little League website (www.fallbb.com).  Use the large orange ‘Register Now’ button in the upper right hand corner of the home page to start the process.

Please note there will be some changes to the registration process this year with some firm dates.  Players that do not register before the deadlines will be wait listed with no guarantee that they will be placed on a team.  I strongly encourage you to register early (save $20) to guarantee placement on a team.

We need Managers and Coaches!  In order for us to organize 800+ kids and place them on over 70 teams we encourage parents to register early and volunteer to manage a team.  We are in need of MANAGERS (head coach) at all levels.  The Manager and Assistant Coach applications are listed alongside the player registration forms on the FALL website (www.fallbb.com). Please fill out your application ASAP.

 

IMPORTANT DATES

11/1/14 Early Registration opens for league age players age 5-14.

To register, select the ‘Register Now’ link on the left hand navigation bar, or the big ‘Register Now’ button on the Folsom American Little League web site (www.fallbb.com).

What is league age? The date Little League International uses to determine league age is 4/30.  To determine your player's league age this season, it will be whatever age your player is on or before 4/30/15.

  • Example #1 : Your player turns 10 on 5/2/15 ..He is LEAGUE AGE 9
  • Example #2 : Your player turns 10 on 4/2/15 ..He is LEAGUE AGE 10

Many parents get confused by this - there are no exceptions. T-Ball players must be LEAGUE AGE 5 to play - meaning the player must turn 5 by 4/30/15.

1/1/15 - Registration cost increases $20.00

1/9/15 – Online Registration Closes for league ages 8 through 14 – Walk-in Registration Only at Tryouts

Online registration closes two days prior to the first tryout, on Friday, January 9, 2015.  At this point walk-in registrations will be accepted at tryouts.  However, tryouts are a busy day for everyone, we encourage you to register online prior to 1/9.

1/11/15 and 1/17/15 – Tryouts for league ages 8 through 14

  • TRYOUT DATES: (all players that are LEAGUE AGE 8-14 must attend 1 of the 2 try-out dates offered)
    • TRYOUT #1: Sunday, January 11th, 2015 at Lembi Baseball Field
    • TRYOUT #2: Saturday, January 17th, 2015 at Lembi Baseball Field
  • If one or both of the tryout dates are rained out a follow up tryout date will be scheduled, dates and times are to be determined.
  • ALL players LEAGUE AGE 8-14 that either do not try out, or register after TRY-OUT #2 will be placed on a wait list with no guarantee of placement.
  • Players LEAGUE AGE 5-7 - DO NOT NEED TO TRY-OUT

2/9/15 – Online Registration Closes for league ages 5 through 7

Last day to register for LEAGUE AGE 5-7 is February 9th, 2015.  All players that register after February 9th, 2015 will be placed on a wait list with no guarantee of placement.

I've included answers to some frequently asked questions below.  For further questions on registration, please contact Sky Nelder at .  For all other questions, please email .

Thank You, 

 

Robert Green

President 

Folsom American Little League
