RMLL is offering a High Performance Fall Ball Program this year, along with the other three leagues in District 8 (Cal West, Fish Creek and Cal South).
For Majors (players age 11 and 12) we will run teams at the AAA and AA level (approximately 24 total players). Players will be selected based on ability demonstrated throughout the season and at evaluation sessions.
For Minors players (age 10 and below), we are offering a AAA level team only.
More details on this program are as follows/noted below:
Most games will be played at Rose Diamond in Stanley Park but games will be played at other diamonds within District 8.
Games will be played on weekends and practices will likely be Tuesday and Thursday. Program dates are from early September until October 4th.
Age groups eligible are 9 to 12 years old and reflect current 2020 Little League Baseball Age.
Players who were eligible for RMLL but didn’t play Summer House League because they were restricted to one baseball cohort or they withdrew for safety/travel concerns are permitted to register and try out for a Fall Ball team.
We expect a four team cohort that includes teams from Fish Creek Little League, Rocky Mountain Little League, Cal West Little League and Cal South Little League. This is subject to change based on number of players from all leagues.
High Performance Fall Ball is a competitive program and is structured differently than the regular season. Unlike House League where the focus is on giving every child an opportunity to play every position, Managers will set the batting line-up and place players in field positions they feel will give them a competitive advantage. The minimum requirement for playing time is different than House League.
The registration fee for High Performance Fall Ball is expected to be $150/player. This fee covers diamond fees associated with Stanley Park, umpires for games and other fees that may be incurred to run the program. We may provide hats, belts and pants but jerseys will be returned after the season concludes.
Payment is due ONLY upon confirmation/acceptance of your child earning a spot on one of the teams.
Evaluations are as follows:
All players who want to be considered for a team MUST register and indicate their preference for evaluation day/time. If a player is interested in playing but can't attend one of the scheduled evaluations, that needs to be indicated when you register
