Fairport District Travel Team Registration & Tryouts
Please note that while returning players are not required to attend a tryout, it is recommended as placement on last year's team does not guarantee placement on this year's team
 
Although the Spring Season has only recently ended, it is time to start preparing for the the 2017 season. The registration and tryouts for Fairport's District Travel Teams are upon us. If you have a player ages 7-12 that has the skill, desire and time to compete on a secondary team in the spring, you may register now by clicking on your age group below.
 
 
 
(Corrected age range)
 
We are also looking for potential managers and coaches for all age groups. If you have previous coaching experience and would like to be considered for a managerial or coaching position, please contact Brian Talbot to indicate your interest. The number of teams fielded will depend on the volume of player registrations and coaching volunteers, so please contact as soon as possible to share your interest.
 
  • Players that played on a Fairport D4 travel team last year should register and do not need to attend a tryout.
  • Players new to the program should plan on attending a tryout at the Lyndon Road complex Field 1 on Sunday August 14 at Noon
For those unfamiliar with the Travel Baseball program, please note that playing on a "house" or standard Fairport Little League team is a requirement of playing on a Travel team. While the programs work hard to avoid conflicts, your house team must also be given priority when practices and games do conflict.
 
Please Contact Brian Talbot ( ), Patrick Burns ( ) or Mike Finn ( ) with further questions.

Enhancements to Our Softball Program

Fairport Little League is forming teams at all levels of our Softball program.  We have reviewed the current division formats and instituted a number of changes to improve the quality of play and provide an improved experience for all players.
 
We have identified a need for focusing on youth pitching and are conducting a weekly pitcher and catcher clinic that has had significant participation. We believe that quality pitching will provide more valuable games for all players and teams.
 
For Minors, we have instituted a number of rule changes to improve the level of play and introduce the girls to a fuller game at a younger age and help in the transition to the next level.   
 
Fairport Majors and Minors divisions will combine with Pittsford Little League to enhance our programs.  This continues the success we have had in Majors in previous years of playing with Pittsford in a light travel schedule that has provided a fun, rewarding experience. 
 
This year, Fairport Majors will be participating in a District 4 “play date weekend” at the end of May in which we send our teams to play with the other towns in a fun cross town event. This kicked off last season to great success we are excited to participate this year. Teams will be based on player/coach availability.  There is no additional cost for playing in this tournament as Fairport Little League will cover all costs.  This is a great opportunity for our girls to play against surrounding towns.
 
Both Minors and Majors will have post season tournament opportunities and extended summer play.
 
In the next few weeks we will be wrapping up registration and forming teams. We have openings remaining so please get your registrations in as we look forward to a great 2016 and beyond!
 
Thank you
