What you need to know before you can register a player in Fairfax Little League:

  1. Determine which “League” (American or National) for which to register
  2. Determine the "League Age" of your player
  3. Determine which "Level" to register for

If you have any questions, please contact: registrar@fairfaxll.org

​​If you are ready to register just scroll down to bottom of this page and select "Begin Registration" for the correct level.

Determining which "League" (American or National) for which to register:

You can determine which “League” (American or National) to register for according to two (2) different rules based on either: a) where you live; or b) where your player goes to school:

a) Click: https://www.littleleague.org/play-little-league/league-finder/ to access the little league app to determine your league.  If the little league website does not provide an answer please click: League Boundaries access the map of the two Fairfax Little League boundaries.

b) Click: League Schools to determine the League (American or National) in which your player’s school is located.

After checking both a) and b), if both methods tell you the same League, then that is the only League for which you can register your child.

If after checking both a) and b), the methods tell you different Leagues (i.e. you live in one League but player goes to school in another), you can register for whichever League suits your player and family the best. 

Note 1: If you select your League based on “school” you will be required to submit a school official certified School Enrollment Form (provided by the League Player Agent) record for the current school year before your registration will be considered “complete”.

Note 2: Once your registration is “complete” your decision of League is “final” for the upcoming season.

Determining "League Age":

Click this chart https://ll-production-uploads.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2018/09/2019-baseball-age-chart-v2.pdf to help you determine your player's "League Age".

Determining which "Level" to register for:

Use the player’s "League Age" and consider their last level played and their ability as you read the following Little League Division descriptions below to determine which level to register your player for:

Tee-Ball Division:

Tee-Ball : is for kids “league age” 4 to 5 years old to participate in an instructional environment where the priority is on teaching the basics of hitting, running, catching and throwing a baseball. Players in Tee-Ball games hit off a batting tee.  5 year olds who have already completed a season of Tee-Ball should consider playing in Coach Toss

Coach Toss : is for kids “league age” 5 to 6 years old to participate in an instructional environment where the priority is on teaching the basics of hitting, running, catching and throwing a baseball. Players in Coach Toss games hit off a batting tee and transition to coach toss as individual players become ready to hit coach tossed balls.  6 year olds who have already completed a season of Coach Toss should consider playing in the Rookie division.

60' Divisions:

Rookie : consists primarily of “league age” 6 to 7 year olds. Players in games hit a pitched ball from a machine. 

Single “A” : consists primarily of “league age” 7 to 8 year olds. Players in games hit a pitched ball from a machine. 

AA up to Majors : consists primarily of “league age” 7 to 11 year olds. Players in games hit a pitched ball by another player. Selection onto teams is made through the draft system.  The Majors draft is conducted first. Players league age 10 and younger not drafted to a Majors team will enter the AAA draft. Players league age 9 and younger not drafted to a AAA team will enter the AA draft.  Players who are in 2nd grade may register to play in AA if they have played at least one (1) season of Single A and are ready for AA.

50'/70' Intermediate Division: 

Intermediate : consists primarily of “league age” 11 and 12 year olds looking for an option in between playing Majors and Juniors. Intermediate games are played on a field with 70 foot base paths, which is in between the smaller 60 foot Majors fields and the larger 90 foot Juniors fields. 

League Age 12: Intermediate is meant for “league age” 12 year olds who have not yet attained the experience or skill to move up to play Juniors on the larger 90 foot field. It is highly recommended that league age 12 players who are skilled and experienced or are in 8th grade or higher play Juniors.

League Age 11: Intermediate is also for highly skilled and experienced “league age” 11 year olds, but only if they have played at least one (1) season of Majors, and are ready to move up to the larger 70 foot field for a greater challenge than Majors can give them.

Selection on an Intermediate team is made through the draft system. Players league age 11 and younger not drafted to an Intermediate team will enter the Majors draft and receive a $25 refund.

90’ Divisions:

Juniors : is for "league age" 12 and 13 year old players. Juniors is played on a 90 foot field, the swame as high school, college, and professional baseball.

It is highly recommended that only players league age 13 who are also in 9th grade or higher play Seniors to be with their classmates. All other league age 13 players should play Juniors.

Selection on a Seniors team is made through the draft system.  Players league age 13 and younger not drafted to a Seniors team will enter the Juniors draft.

$25 Parent Volunteer Opt-out Fee:

To encourage more volunteer participation, Fairfax Little League has instituted an “opt out” policy for parent volunteering.

Parents who select to volunteer for a key position listed during registration must perform when called upon to honor their commitment and agreement and will not have to pay the $25 Opt-out fee.

Parents who Opt-out and do not volunteer for any key position will be charged a $25 Opt-out fee during registration.

Opting out and paying the extra $25 Opt-out fee does not excuse anyone from assisting with field set-up before and clean-up after each practice and game.

But opting out and paying the extra $25 does excuse you from having to help and perform in any key volunteer position during the season.

How to pay by check:

Credit Card payments are preferred, however if you need to pay by check contact .

Late Fee:

FxLL reserves the right to announce a $25 Late Fee Date in advance of significant events like the Team Drafts to encourage parents to register their players prior to those events to ensure teams are formed properly. It is essential that all players are registered before teams are formed. Dates for late fees, if announced, may be different depending on the playing level.

Refunds:

If you need to request a refund contact us at Refunds are unlikely to be approved after uniforms have been distributed to the teams or the season has started absent special circumstances.

  • A $10.00 charge will apply to all requested refunds to cover credit card and associated processing fees.

2019 Fall Tee Ball - Pre-School

T-Ball : is for pre-schooler players “league age” 4 and older to participate in an instructional environment where the priority is on teaching the basics of hitting, running, catching and throwing a baseball. Players in Tee-Ball games hit off a batting tee.

You should expect to be contacted by your Manager/Coach in mid-August.

What do I need to know about Tee-Ball?

Schedule -- The Spring regular season starts in late March or early April and generally runs through the first or second week in June. The Fall season starts in late August or early September and generally runs through the end of October. Weather permitting, practices start a couple of weeks prior to the first games. T-ball teams play one game per week on Saturdays and have one practice on the same weeknight each week. No games are scheduled on the weekends associated with Fairfax County's Spring Break, Memorial Day, Labor Day or Columbus Day Weekend. Games are subject to a time limit - no new inning shall start later than 1 hour and 15 minutes after the scheduled start time and the game terminates after 4 complete innings or completion of the last legally started inning.

Equipment -- At a minimum, your child will need a baseball glove and a bat. The League will provide a uniform shirt and cap. He or she will also need baseball pants and socks, but you should hold off purchasing these because the coach may want to coordinate with the color of the shirt. Boys will also need to wear a protective cup while playing (even Tball). The League supplies helmets for those who do not wish to purchase their own. Baseball cleats become routine at the Rookie level and above and, as players make a longer term commitment to the sport, they usually have their own helmet.
