NEW! Combined Event - D4 Travel Tryout/FLL Skill Evaluation
Dear Fairport Little League Families,
 
The Board of Directors are involved in an ongoing process to improve everyone's experience with baseball in general and Fairport Little League in particular.  We hope that you are starting to experience some of the efforts being made.  In that spirit, we are announcing D4 Travel Tryouts AND a Fairport Little League Player Evaluation event for September 16th and 17th.  See the link to register your player for this event at the bottom of this message.
 
Part of this effort is to aid the overall development of each individual player regardless of league, skill or age.  In that spirit we will be holding an evaluation for each age group in the month of September at our Lyndon Road complex.  D4 Travel Baseball tryouts are part of this, however it is important to note that:
 
1.  This IS NOT strictly a D4 travel tryout.  In fact, we regard the D4 Travel tryout to be secondary to the attendees getting an Assessment of their skills and areas to work on.  
2.  Every FLL player is strongly encouraged to participate regardless of age or skill set.
 
Why?  Only players participating in this evaluation will receive these benefits:
  • Both Fairport Little League and Fairport School Baseball coaches will be evaluators
  • EACH player and his or her parents will receive a detailed Assessment/Overall evaluation of strengths and weaknesses to work on during the off season...which leads to
  • FLL will be offering low cost off season practice sessions where specific skill sets will be taught and coached throughout the winter.  (Details and dates to follow)
  • Guaranteed inclusion for the 2018 Spring Baseball season
  • 2018 Spring Baseball All-Star consideration
  • Any player who would like to play and/or would be new to Bronco in 2018 MUST attend
  • If you'd like to be considered for D4 Travel Baseball, you must attend
IMPORTANT:  
  • ALL PARENTS AND LITTLE LEAGUE COACHES are strongly encouraged to attend and watch the evaluation.
  • Get involved:  Coaches are needed to volunteer to participate in hitting ground balls, fly balls, etc.  If you are interested, please contact Tom Caputo via email @  .... Space is limited.  
  • There will be Spring tryouts held as well, but players will not receive the Assessment by the evaluators 
 
When:
 
Saturday, September 16th 
 
12u: 1:00pm-4:00pm (arrive at 12:30 to warm up)
 
10u: 4:00pm-7:00pm (arrive at 3:30pm to warm up)
 
 
Sunday, September 17th

8u:   2:00pm-5:00pm (arrive at 1:30pm to warm up)
 
 
We look forward to seeing you there and helping your child grow within the sport of baseball.
 
Fairport Little League Board of Directors

Register for Fall Baseball & Softball
Fall Baseball & Softball Registration is Open
 
Fall Season is aimed at providing opportunity for kids to play at the level they would in the Spring of 2018 to introduce new skills/additional practice into fall baseball; however, this is not required depending on individual skill level/readiness.
 
No standings, no playoffs, no trophies; considered as light, fun, developmental in nature.  The Fall Ball program will intend to have both competitive level team(s) and house level team(s), permitting registration numbers support enough competitive level teams. Please register Competitive or House Leagues respectively.
 
Games will begin on Saturday 9/9 and end on Saturday 10/28 weather permitting. You can expect a 6 to 8 week season. Rainouts are attempted to be made up on Sundays. Games will be against other towns participating in the District. Games are on weekends only but individual coaches may schedule additional practices.
 
Please volunteer to manage or coach! No season will happen without you volunteers and it is greatly appreciated.
 
Any questions please contact Steve Kull at 
 

 

Register by August 21st by clicking your players age division below
Age limits are shown
Price is $70 per player

 

House and Competitive Leagues based on skill level if enough teams.

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.
