Seasons

Fall Season

Fall Season is specifically designed to keep kids active and learning.  The season is expected to be more casual and instructional.  The season is about half the size as our Main Spring season.  We do not supply a full uniform and we play less games.  Typical time requirement is 1 practice and 1 game per week for 8 weeks.  Season typically starts in late September and ends before Thanksgiving.


Spring Season

Spring is the main Little League season.  This is the season that is well documented, lasts about 12 weeks and culminates with an All-Star season.  Rules are more strict and teams are drafted.  All players that want to play must be documented and within zone.  Out of zone players can play with proper paperwork.


 

In Summary

Every year is divided into three different seasons.  In order, the Spring Season, Post Season and then Fall Season.  The post season is determined by the results of the Spring Season.  It lasts June - August.  Spring season requires paperwork, all rules followed, and drafts to determine teams.  Fall season is much more casual and fun for the kids and families.
