Fall Ball at SCLL
The Fall baseball season is our shorter, more "developmental" season. It's great for players who are new to organized baseball, or who want to further develop skills in preparation for the Spring season. Fall ball runs from early September (practices begin late August, then games) to mid November (end of games).
Online registration for the Fall season begins around July, and runs through Aug. Registration fee is $150, and include a dri-fit uniform shirt and hat.
Please note that in order to play in our programs, players must either live or go to school within our league boundaries. (This is a Little League rule.) See District 33 boundaries map > **Exceptions may be granted if a player's usual league does not offer a Fall baseball program.
Little League determines a player’s age by the age s/he will be on or before August 31 of the year following Fall ball. This is called the “league age.” See the 2024 Little League Age Chart.
If your player is older than league age 12, please visit our friends at Patriot League Baseball. They play on the field east of the SCLL fields.
All players will be registered in divisions according to their "league age." However, due to the "developmental" nature of the fall season, you may want your player(s) to "play up" or "play down" in the division above or below the usual age-designated division. This can help challenge a player to develop better skills, or give a player more time to develop fundamental skills before moving up to the next level. Please email fall[email protected] with requests to play up or down.
Tee ball: League ages 4-5.
Caps: League ages 6-7.
Rookies: League age 8.
Minors: League ages 9-10.
Majors: League ages 11-12.
Online registration for Fall baseball begins July 1st and continues through Sunday August 31st. Practices begin in late August. Our Available Programs page lists registration opportunities, when they're open. You'll need to create an account on our website (if you don't already have one) and enter your player(s) information before you register.
Only players who go to school or reside within our boundaries are eligible to play in our programs. The exception is if your usual league doesn't offer a Fall baseball program.
Players typically need the following equipment: cleats (rubber/plastic), batting helmet, USA Baseball–approved bat (2018 or newer; look for the "USA Baseball" sticker about the grip tape), glove, baseball pants, briefs/cup combo, and bag/backpack to carry it all. Ask your manager for more specific information.
League-provided uniforms include a dri-fit uniform shirt and hat.
Questions related to Fall Ball Registration
Do I need to provide proof of residency?For More Information
No. Unlike the Spring season, we don't require proof of residency or school attendance. However, players must reside or go to school within our boundaries to play Fall ball--unless their usual league does not offer a Fall baseball program. Please note that participation in Spring baseball requires full documentation of residency or school.

To register for Fall ball, we don't require any paperwork. Please print out and complete the "Medical Release" form on pg. 2 of the 2023 Registration Packet, and give it to your manager at the first practice. (The other pages are not needed in Fall.)

Practices and games
Once they select their teams, managers will notify their teams, and indicate practice days and times. Most teams practice 1-2 times per week, Monday through Sat. Fall baseball games take place on Sunday afternoons, and take place either at our SCLL fields, or other District 33 leagues' fields (North Park, Mission Trails, Serra Mesa, etc.) They are never more than about a 20-min. drive from San Carlos.
