The Fall Baseball Program's primary goal is instruction with the emphasis on skills development. Games are played with winners and losers, but no standings are kept and no championship is awarded. This program is particularly helpful to those who expect to move up to a new division next spring.
The program also includes enhanced professional instruction with a focus on technical development for hitting, fielding, pitching and catching to be held at Coastal CT Athletics in Danbury and on field clinics.
· We will field 4 Divisions
o Rising Majors – Players that played Majors in the spring and 11U players that hope to play Majors in 2022
o Rising 11U – Players that played 11U in the spring and 9U players that hope to play 11U in 2022
o Rising 9U – Players that played 9U in the spring and 8U players that hope to play 9U in 2022
o Rising 8U – Players who played 8U along with Coach Pitch and T-ball. This group will be broken up into 2 sub divisions based on age
· Rising Majors and Rising 11U players will participate in a hitting clinic at Coastal CT Athletics on Tuesday or Thursday, Saturday on field defensive clinics and Sunday games.
· Rising 9U players will participate in a hitting clinic at Coastal CT Athletics on Wednesday, Saturday on field defensive clinics and Sunday games.
· Rising 8U players will participate in Saturday technical development sessions at Coastal CT and Sunday Games at Jensen Field!
We encourage families to register their players for the division they hope to play in the upcoming 2022 spring season. We recommend that advanced players and/or those who have played a division for more then one season sign-up for the next level but also understand that some players may be more comfortable staying where they played this past spring. Participation in a given Fall Ball division does not guarantee that a player will play in that division in the spring since evaluations and drafts dictate divisional placement for Majors, 11U and 9U.
FALL BALL REGISTRATION IS OPEN
