2020 Fall Ball

Registration for 2020 Fall Ball is now open! Please read the descriptions of each division carefully. In order for your child to have a meaningful Little League experience, they must be signed up for the best division that offers them a fair challenge. 

Dates and times of clinics are posted in the CALENDAR under TEAM CENTRAL.

Fall Ball is a time for training, trying a new sport or simply staying busy in the off-season. During the 7-week fall ball program, all divisions will participate in weekly training clinics as allowed by state, county and city guidelines for a return to safe play. Currently, baseball contests are not allowed so we will not be forming teams to begin the fall season. Until guidelines allow, we will organize a clinic-only season of training for all of our divisions. 

For each division, the fall season consists of:

Tee Ball - two events per week. Clinic coaches will organize each event using the Little League Tee Ball guide. This introductory division is for children ages 4-6 who are learning the fundamentals of swinging the bat in a full circle and throwing the ball with a full circle, overhand motion. The emphasis is on having fun, learning the fundamentals of baseball while discovering the independence of being out on a baseball field. Parental involvement is critical at this stage as our youngest players are introduced to a team environment and needing to follow the direction of volunteer coaches.

Coach-Pitch - Two to three events per week. Clinics will be organized using drills and practice plans outlined in the Little League Coach-Pitch Manual. This beginner to intermediate division is for players 6-8 who have played a season of Tee Ball and who can make a balanced, full-circle swing at a pitch thrown by a coach or pitching machine. Also, for players who can throw the ball using a full circle arm motion and who are ready to receive throws from players who can throw a little harder. The emphasis is on having fun, working on developing baseball skills at a higher level and continuing to improve at being a part of a team and following instructions of the volunteer coaches.

Minor AAA - three events per week. Clinics will be organized by experienced Minor AAA volunteers who will challenge players to master skills learned in Coach-Pitch. This advanced division is for experienced players who are ready for it all. They are proficient at swinging and throwing with good balance and full circle motions. These players are becoming more proficient at selecting player-pitches to swing at. Many of these players are ready to advance their experience in pitching and catching.  The emphasis is on having fun, learning good sportsmanship and becoming leaders in the UFLL community.

Majors - three events per week. Clinics will be organized by existing and former major managers and coaches. This is an expert division and is for existing major division players and those experienced Minor AAA players from the spring who are ready for the challenges at this level. Emphasis is on having fun, strengthening good sportmanship and improving one's leadership in the UFLL community.

*** If your child was a major division player in the spring, they are eligible to sign up for Fall Ball Majors. If you run into any issues during registration, please contact us asap.

It is customary for Fall Ball players to play according to their league age for the upcoming spring season (2021). Here is a link to the Little League age calculator.

Safety guidelines will be distributed as well as posted on out league website. All safety measures and recommendations will be in place as to maximize safety and enjoyment of healthful and wholesome Little League baseball at Upland Foothill Little League.
