Registration for the Spring Season typically runs through December and January.  Registration for Fall Ball typically runs through September.  Please visit our website or Facebook page for specific registration dates.

Yes. Prior to registering with SFLL, please take a look at our boundary map located under the Documents tab of our website.  

3.    How many times per week do the kids practice?

Practice days and times will vary on the age of your child and the team's coach. Most teams will practice up to 3 times per week until games start and then only practice once or twice per week depending on the game schedule. Practice day and times will be at the discretion of the coach so please share with him any conflicts you may have.

Game schedules will be set after the team draft is complete. All divisions will have at least one game per week. Tee ball typically has one game per week. Coach Pitch - Majors may have up to two games per week. Schedules are subject to change due to weather. We generally try to avoid games on Sunday.

11.  What is a Player Agent?

SFLL has a Player Agent assigned for all divisions.  The purpose of the Player Agent is to ensure each division runs smoothly with the best interest of the players in mind.  The Player Agent serves as the liaison between the parents and the elected board of directors.  Parents are encouraged to engage their Player Agent with any issues they feel are not being adequately address by their coach.  

12.  Why does SFLL conduct background checks on volunteers?

Little League International requires its member leagues to search the Department of Justice National Sex Offender Registry and conduct a national criminal background check for each volunteer with regular service to the league or repetitive access to children on a yearly basis.

13.  Are players required to tryout and does every player “make the team”?

Players are required to tryout for the SPRING season ONLY. Tee ball is excluded from tryouts. Yes. Every registered player will have a spot on a team. Teams are formed based on the number of players registered. If a player misses tryouts, they are placed in a blind draft and assigned to a team.

14.  How does the draft work? (Spring Season Only)

The draft process is a method in which the managers select their teams. Selection is made in a "serpentine process" where Manager #1 picks a player, then Manager #2 and so on until the last manager has picked a player. This ends a "draft round" and the process reverses, with the last manager starting the next round. This continues until all teams have selected a pre-determined amount of players. 

15.  Can a parent request their child be on a specific team?  

In the fall, yes.  In the spring, no. The only players guaranteed to be on a specific coach's team is that coach's child. The league can accommodate certain hardships, such as transportation concerns, that require two players to be paired together during the draft. These will be handled on a case-by-case basis. There are no guarantees. 

16.  Is there a mandatory fundraiser? 

As a non-profit entity that doesn't receive any financial assistance from any city or municipality, fundraisers are a way of life at SFLL. However, players are given the opportunity to participate in one fundraiser a year, which occurs at the beginning of the spring season. 

17.  How much does it cost to play?  

Spring 2021 Registration Costs*: 
$200 – Tee Ball - Juniors
* Early Bird Discounts are applied if you register early.

18.  Is SFLL an all boys league?

No. Boys and girls play on the same teams.

19.  How do I volunteer to coach?

Managers and Coaches register on the same link as player registration. SFLL will host Manager interviews prior to the beginning of the season, please check our website for dates and times. Once a Manager has been interviewed if you qualify, we will have a Managers meeting to discuss all details at that time. Managers will pick their coaches at that time.
