2022 SPRING SEASON FAQ

SPRING SEASON FAQ

Here are the answers to the top frequently asked questions about the upcoming Spring Baseball season.

1. How do I register?

You can register from our website or at one of our scheduled in-person registrations.

Online - From the home page click the Register icon and follow the directions in setting up your account. Once you have your account set up you can register your player.

In-Person - Even if you want to register in person we encourage you to set up your account prior to coming to one of the events.

2. What documents do I need to bring?

If your player is new to FCLL we will need you to show proof of age by showing us your child's birth certificate. This can be an emailed scan or picture. We do not require a copy to keep on file. The registration process will also ask for residency verification. Please follow the directions in that section.

3. Are there any additional forms that I need?

Every season we require a new or updated Medical Release form. This is general information that is required by Little League and is given to your players coach and does not need to be completed by a physician. I copy is attached to your registration receipt. This must be completed and given to your head coach at or before your first practice.

4. When are tryouts?

Little League does not have tryouts which means every player will get placed on a team. What we do have is called the Player Skills Assessment or The Look. It is a quick skills exercise that allows the coaches to evaluate the players to help them make selection during the player draft. Tee Ball is the only divisions that does not participate in the Look. The PSA or Look date, time and location will be posted on our Events calendar.

 5. When and where are the practices and games?

The practice schedule is set by the Head Coach of you team. Your coach will contact you with the times and location. All divisions will be scheduled to play at Northwest Community Park. Weather permitting, we have a 12 game schedule in which could be scheduled Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and or Friday and Saturday. We will only schedule games on a Sunday or Wednesday if we need to reschedule a rained out game and no other day has a field(s) available. Weekday games typically start at 6:30PM (Tee Ball at 6PM) and weekend games as early as 9:00AM.

6. Rescheduling of rain-outs and cancellations.

We will try and reschedule rain-outs as long as fields are available and it doesn’t interfere with the LL 3 event rule. This is also dependent on the coaches availability.

7. What equipment will I need to supply?

The registration fee covers the player’s jersey, hat belt and socks in Tee Ball and Coach Pitch, their belt. Minors, majors, juniors and seniors includes hat and jersey. (Please note there might be an additional charge for junior and senior uniforms as they are usually upgraded from the other divisions). Each coach is given a team equipment bag that has bats and helmets. You will need to provide your player a baseball glove, cleats* (in Tee Ball this is optional) and the color pants your coach specifies. Minor division on up will need to provide the belt and sock as specified by your coach.

*No metal cleats until the junior/senior division.

8. How do I find out what team my player is on?

In February we have our spring season coaches meeting and player draft. That same day after the draft we will have our Parents Meeting. The location and time is TBD but will be posted on our events calendar and emailed to all registered emails.

9. Can my player use any bat?

10. Even though some bats might be new do they still need to be inspected?

All bats and helmets will be inspected by the umpires prior to every game. If any defect is observed or the bat does not meet LL requirements, the piece of equipment will be disqualified for use.

 

11. How do I volunteer?

Every spring we run new background checks and issue the spring/fall season volunteer badge. You will receive an email from JD Palatine requesting you to complete the online volunteer request form. Once approved we will make you a badge to be worn anytime you are at the fields as a coach, scorekeeper or concession volunteer. There is no cost to you for the first badge. Duplicate or replacements cost $5.00.

 

12. If I have more question, who do I contact?

We prefer all questions be directed to our general info email address which is [email protected]. If the recipient of the email cannot help you, your email will be directed to someone that can help you. Or you can come see us at one of our in-store registrations.
