Who will be my coach?

ALL Coaches are Volunteers. TFL does not hire coaches for our league. YOU CAN COACH, TOO! We are always in need of Volunteers to help coach teams and may ask the parents if we do not have a volunteer for the team. Mom/Dad if you would like to coach, please select the box by the "Would you like to coach?" option and enter your own name in the Coach Preference box.

How are teams set up?

We build teams by Coach Preference, Friend Preference, and School/Location. Teams are set after registration ends, then rosters are sent to the coaches, and then practices will begin. The coaches on the team will decide the time/location of practices.

How many practices per week?

1-2 practices a week; depending on what the parents and coaches decide. 

What days will games be played on?

Mostly Saturdays, but may have a few Friday evening and Sunday afternoon games. Will have some double headers.

Which bats are allowed?

Standard softball bats

Can we bring a complete team to the league?

Yes, just email Rob with the details. All team members can register online, requesting you as coach. There is an option on the registration form that states: "Coach Preference."

Can we request friends to play with?

Yes, we try to build the teams where the kids and parents have friends on the team. We want the kids to have fun in the dug out and parents to have fun in the bleachers. We build teams using the "Friend Preference" and school listed on the registration form.
