A LATE ADD REGISTRATION understands they will go where we can place them.  Only if we do not have an open space and do not offer any team slot, will a player be refunded. 

* A LATE ADD REGISTRATION understands that their uniform will have to be ordered LATE, so it will arrive LATE, possibly after opening weekend.  When ordering LATE uniforms, the availability & size could be impacted.

How does TFL Communicate?

The league and coaches communicate via email.  When completing registration, PLEASE put your email that you check frequently.

Where are games played?

Games can be played at The Farm League Park, Burroughs Park, Collins Park, Gleannloch Farms Sports Complex, Trinity Lutheran or Rothwood Park. These parks are run separately and in charge of making sure their fields are ready to play and determine if their field is rained out.

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.

Teams have a limit on how many players they can hold, we will not add to a full roster as it affects everyone's playing time. Please talk to the parents and coaches to make sure they know you are signing up.  It is your responsibility to CONFIRM with the parent/coach there IS space on the team and the friend IS registering to play.  This is very important for building teams.

What is the Maximum roster size?

4U: 7 players is ideal, 9 players maximum (We set these numbers with our families in mind, giving each player the maximum playing time. At this age not much is happening in the outfield, so we do not want players in outfield doing nothing)

5U: 7 players is ideal, 9 players maximum (We set these numbers with our families in mind, giving each player the maximum playing time. At this age not much is happening in the outfield, so we do not want players in the outfield doing nothing)

Coach Pitch (6U-8U):  10 players minimum, 12 players maximum

Kid Pitch (9U & up): 10 players minimum, 11 players is ideal, 12 players maximum

Can I coach?

Yes! On the registration form you can select the "coach" or "team mom" box. We will get with the new coaches as the season gets closer.

All teams are led by parent volunteer manager and coaches. We will request a parent volunteer if needed.

What kind of ball do we use?

3,4,5, and 6u teams use a soft core baseball. "squishy" ball to help get the kids used to catching a baseball. All other divisions use a standard baseball.

Coaches will be emailed if games are rained out or delayed due to weather, otherwise games are played as scheduled.

What if my child is playing two different sports at The Farm League? Will games conflict?

We will do our best to avoid any regular season game conflcits between the two sports.  We will also do our best to avoid any playoff game conflicts in round 1 of playoffs.  However, as teams advance in playoffs, we cannot avoid conflicts.
