Welcome to Sunnyvale
Little League Fall Ball Registration!
ENTIRE PAGE before registering!
We are excited to open Little
League Baseball registration for the 2023 fall season here in Sunnyvale!
What is Fall Ball
League offers fall baseball from September 1st through October 31st in a more
relaxed environment in comparison to the spring season. We refer to this as
"Fall Ball", which is intended to provide children with an opportunity to
develop their baseball skills in an environment which is less competitive than
the spring season. This is also an opportunity for children to prepare for a
jump to the next level of play (i.e. making the jump from one playing division
to the next higher division).
Some details to understand about Fall
- All games occur on Sundays.
- The majority of games will be played in the
afternoons. However, there may be a few games played before noon, depending on
the host league's field availability.
- Most coaches choose to host practices on Sundays
before the team's game, but some may opt for mid-week practices in addition to
the Sunday practice
- We issue a dry fit shirt and SVLL hat as the
- We do not require volunteer work as is the case in
- We do not offer a snack shack in the fall
- As a general point of guidance, if a player plans
to move up a division in the spring, they should use the fall to make the
transition to that division. Example: If a player played in the Minors Division
in the previous spring season and they are aging up to Majors in the next
spring season, they should register for Majors in the fall.
If you elect to have your child participate
in Fall Ball, you will need to complete regular online
registration, which includes payment of league fees,and aggreement of
our liability waiver. You can start that process at the end of this

the spring season.
Divisions with a Waiting
List: As we get close to the start of the season, we will place certain
divisions in a "waiting list state" once we register enough players to form
teams. If you attempt to register, and you are presented with a message which
indicates that you are in a waiting list, it does not mean your child won't
play this season. We do everything in our power to form equally balanced teams,
so we have to limit the roster size for any given team. Roster sizes vary by
division. If you are on a waiting list, it means that we still need more
players to register in your respective division, so that we can form a whole
team. You can help expedite this by introducing our league to your friends and
have them register. If you have any questions about the waiting list, please
reach out to our Player Agent at:
4. No Volunteer Obligation in Fall
There are no
volunteer obligations for Fall Ball, but we are always looking for coaches and
assistant coaches. please reach out to the Player Agent at
firstname.lastname@example.org if you are
interested in coaching.
All registrations are being processed online. Some very
basic (but important) instructions:
- You will first be prompted to create an online
account. This collects parent and player information.
- You will then be prompted to register your
child(ren). Click on the "Register" button next to your child's name to add the
child to your online shopping cart. If you are registering multiple children,
be sure to add both before "checking out" (i.e. paying as the final step in
- Finally, you will be prompted to "complete
checkout", which will prompt you for payment information.
6. Complete Volunteer
PLEASE NOTE: ANY PARENT WHO
SERVES AS A COACH OR ASSISTANT COACH MUST COMPLETE A BACKGROUND CHECK. We will
be using JDP, a third party vendor, to conduct the required background checks
of all adult volunteers. With this process, all volunteers will receive an
e-mail shortly after online registration is completed, which will contain a
link that directs the volunteer to the Sunnyvale Little League
Volunteer Online Application (served by JDP).
If you completed a background check for our league in the spriing,
you are NOT required to re-submit for the fall.
process will allow you, the league volunteer, to submit all necessary
verification information online, including social security number, and
eliminates the need for Sunnyvale Little League officials to handle sensitive
personal volunteer information. The Sunnyvale Little League
Volunteer Online Application (served by JDP) is used to conduct a
volunteer background check. This new process allows us to move to a paperless
volunteer form process and provide a more secure process for each volunteer.
After the background check is completed, Sunnyvale Little League must
still verify the volunteer's application with a government-issued photo ID. In
order to fulfill this step, each volunteer who submits an online application is
required to present a state issued identification card or drivers license at
Document Verification Day, which will be held in conjunction with Majors and
Minors tryouts at Cupertino Middle School (Date TBD). If you have any further
questions on our volunteer verification process, please contact the league
Safety Director (email@example.com)
All coaches and
assistant coaches are also required to be fingerprinted and complete Mandatory
Reporter training (online).
