Welcome to Sunnyvale Little League Fall Ball Registration!

READ THIS 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

Sunnyvale Little 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 Ball:
  • 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 uniform
  • We do not require volunteer work as is the case in the spring
  • 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 page.

1. Know your child's "Little League age".

To determine your child's playing age, please refer to the Little League Age Chart for Baseball or Little League Baseball's Age Calculator.

2. No residence verification required

Unlike in the spring, there are no residential boundary restrictions on who can play. This does apply in the spring, so please keep that in mind if you plan to have your child play then. If you reside ouside of our league boudaries, your child will not be eligible to play with us in the spring. There is an exemption to this rule if your child attends school within our boundaries.

3. Determine which Division your child will play.

Sunnyvale Little League only offers the following divisions in the fall: Pioneer, Farm, Minors, and Majors. We DO NOT offer Challenger, T-Ball, Intermediate or Juniors level play in the fall. The Divisions are aligned by age as follows. Please refer to the Little League Age Chart for Baseball to find your player’s Little League age.

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.

A quick summary of the different divisions is provided below. Additional information can be found at this location. Please disregard the section of this document which covers tryouts / player evaluations. This only applies to 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: playeragent.upper@sunnyvalelittleleague.com

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 playeragent.upper@sunnyvalelittleleague.com if you are interested in coaching.

5. Register

All registrations are being processed online. Some very basic (but important) instructions:
  1. You will first be prompted to create an online account. This collects parent and player information.
  2. 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 your registration).
  3. Finally, you will be prompted to "complete checkout", which will prompt you for payment information.

6. Complete Volunteer Verification

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.

This online 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 (safety@sunnyvalelittleleague.com)

All coaches and assistant coaches are also required to be fingerprinted and complete Mandatory Reporter training (online).
