Spring Season Only FAQ's

When are Tryouts?  (Spring Season Only) 
Tryouts are also referred to as Player Evaluations, since every child that wants to participate in Little League is allowed to play. Player Evaluations for Farm, Minors & Majors are typically held in late January just as the registration period is ending. 

What are Player Evaluations?  (Spring Season Only)
A Player Evaluation is a method for measuring the skill of a player. This allows each manager to assess each player’s potential and make an informed decision as they assemble their team during the draft process (Junior Minors, Minors, Majors, and Juniors/Seniors only). 

Local Little League Rules State:  (Spring Season Only) 
Qualified players may tryout for a higher level but are not guaranteed of being drafted at that level. 
A “qualified” player must be league age 10 for Majors; 9 for Minors, 8 for Junior Minors and 5 for Tee Ball / Farm.

Why was my player not picked in a higher division?  (Spring Season Only)
Each manager drafts his team from the list of eligible player candidates. The reason for the skills evaluation is for each manager to have a reasonable basis for making an informed choice as to which players to select. There is usually a large pool of talented players from which to choose. 

What if I don't attend Player Evaluations?  (Spring Season Only)
Players that do not participate in tryouts are restricted to which division they may play.  8 year olds will play in Farm.  9 and 10 and 11 year olds will play in Minors.  12 year olds will play in Majors. 

General FAQ's

When is registration?
Registration for the Spring Season typically runs December through January.  Registration for Fall Ball typically runs August through September.  Please visit our website for specific registration dates.

What if we missed registration?
If you missed registration, there is a late registration process.  Late registrations are accepted and added to a wait list.  Late registrants are only added on an "as needed" basis.  Please make every attempt to sign up during the designated registration period.

When are games scheduled?
Practices for the Spring Season typically begin in February.  The Spring Season typically kicks off in March and runs through late May.  The Fall Ball season runs from late-September through mid-November.

Do we play on Sundays? 
Every attempt is made to not schedule any games on Sunday. Occasionally, a make-up game will be re-scheduled for a Sunday with the approval of the two team managers. Many teams opt to have practices on Sundays, as most fields are available. 

What is included with my registration? 
Player will receive a team jersey and baseball cap.

What is the refund policy?
Cactus Foothills South Little League only offers a refund if the league is advised before the first practice for T-ball & Farm, and before Tryouts for Minors, Majors, and Juniors.

Does CFSLL do background checks on all volunteers? 
In order to protect the safety of our children we process all volunteers using a thorough background check (criminal and sex offender in all states). 

Can we request we play on a certain coaches team or be on the same team as a friend?
If your child plays in TBall or Farm, you can request, however, it is only a request and we cannot guarantee them however we do our best!

What if I, as a parent, want my player on a specific team?
At the Minors and Majors level, no requests are taken. All players are drafted. 

Why can't coaches warm-up pitchers?
Little League’s position is that adults are here to teach the children and as such should have children warm-up pitchers. Rosters are not limited to nine players and therefore should have additional players to warm-up a pitcher. This is a Little League International mandate for safety and liability for which CFSLL will strictly enforce.
