2024 Fall Season Registration Fees

Fall Season Registration Fees

Fall is an optional season to have within Little League.  For Fall, we use what would be the 2025 Age Chart to determine division placement as outlined by the DOBs below.  Fall is generally more laid back and this makes it a good transition season for those that should be moving up to a new division without the stress of a championship or All Stars.  It gives players a chance to learn and adjust to new rules that their new division adds. The cutoff for the Age Chart is a birthday of 8/31 or earlier.

Tee Ball - Ages 4, 5 and 6* [DOB between 9/1/2018 - 8/31/2021**]

$105 (*One season of Tee Ball required before Coach Pitch for players that are league age of 6 ONLY.  No previous experience required for players league age of 7 or 8.)
**Please note: Those that are born between between 9/1/2020 and 8/31/2021 ONLY will need to have the registration manually added to their cart.  Please add your players information into the system and then send an email to [email protected] requesting this, including your players name and DOB.

2024 FALL SEASON FAQ

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

1. How do I register?

You can register from our website. From the home page click the register icon and follow the directions in setting up your account. 

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. We do not require a copy to keep on file.

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. 

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. Coach Pitch, Minors and Majors are the only divisions that participate in the Look. The Look date, time and location will be posted on our Events calendar and above. 

5.When and where are the practices and games?

The practice schedule is set by the Head Coach of your player(s) team. Their coach will contact you with the times and location after the parent meeting. All divisions will be scheduled to play at Northwest Community Park. Weather permitting, we schedule a 12 game season (10 for Tee Ball) in which games could be scheduled Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings and during the day on 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 and weekend games as early as 9:00AM. Tee Ball games are mostly scheduled on Saturdays, but there may be a need to schedule weeknight games depending on how many registrations we have.  The schedule will be made available no earlier than a week after registration closes. 


6. Rescheduling of rain-outs and cancellations.

While we try and reschedule all rainouts, we are at the mercy of the weather and field conditions following any adverse weather we receive. Because of this, the season might have less than 12 games played (10 for Tee Ball). If a game cannot be rescheduled it will be cancelled without discount or refund.

7. What equipment will I need to supply?

The registration fee covers the players jersey and hat. For Tee Ball and Coach Pitch divisions, their belt and socks are also provided.

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 pants in the color your coach specifies. Minor division on up will need to provide their own belt and socks in the color specified by your coach.

The use of metal cleats are not permitted until junior and senior division.

All male catchers are required to wear a cup when catching, although we recommend all male players wear a cup at all times. All male players should wear an athletic supporter regardless of position played.

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

We ask all coaches to contact their team within 48 hours of the draft (see above for date and time). If you haven’t heard from your player(s) coach after this time, please email [email protected].

9. Can my player use any bat?

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

All bats, helmets and catchers gear will be inspected by the umpires prior to every game. If any defect is observed, the piece of equipment will be disqualified for use.

11. How do I volunteer?

You can log into your account and client the volunteer button (person icon) and sign up for the role you are interested in.  Every spring we run new background checks for any volunteer 18 and older and issue the spring/fall season volunteer badge. If you are signing up for the first time in the Fall, you will still be required to complete the background check.  AFTER you have registered through our website, we will send you the background request.

You will receive an email from JD Palatine requesting you to complete the online volunteer request form. Depending on when you sign up to volunteer, may determine the time it takes for the background check request to come to you as it is not automated.  If you haven't received anything after 5 days, please send us an email. Once approved we will make you a badge to be worn anytime you are at the fields as a coach, assistant coach, team parent, parent volunteer, umpire, scorekeeper or concession helper. There is no cost to you for the first badge. Duplicate or replacements cost $5.00.

12. How will I be notified if my player(s) game is impacted due to weather?

There are three ways we will get the word out if games are impacted due to weather.  All three will be updated around the same time after Fort Worth Athletics makes a determination on the field conditions and their playability after a weather event.

We will update the following:
Our rainout hotline.  The number is 817-543-4455.  
Our Facebook and Instagram accounts @fossilcreekllb.
The field status on our home page will show either open or closed. 

If the Fort Worth Athletics department says the fields are not playable, we will not be able to have games.  There are some cases where a last minute judgement call may need to be made for the safety of our players, their family and friends.  

13. If I have more questions, who do I contact?

First, verify that the questions aren't covered by our FCLL General FAQ Page.  If not, 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.
