Fall Registration FAQ

Please check our Calendar page for a list of important Fall Ball dates.

  • I have COVID-19 Questions
    • Please see our COVID Safety Page to read how DLL is working to keep players and volunteers safe. Here is a list of the topics covered:
      • Universal Guidelines
      • Policies for Coaches/Volunteers
      • Policies for Players
      • Policies for Families
      • Guidelines for practices, equipment, and restrooms
      • What to do if you believe your player has been exposed to COVID-19
      • Responsibility to report a COVID-19 positive test in a player or close contact of the player
      • Return to participation if a player tests positive, or becomes symptomatic, for COVID-19
  • What Divisions are offered in Fall Ball?
    • The Fall 2021 Season will include play in the AA, AAA, Majors, 50/70/Juniors divisions
    • Players Little League Age Chart  7-14 are eligible to register
  • What level should my child play?
    • Majors is for kids who were assigned to a Majors team in the Spring 2022 Season OR who are ready to play in Majors in Spring 2023. Skill level is significantly higher than AAA. Play is faster and pitching becomes more consistent and accurate. Strategy becomes an integral part of the game.
      • NOTE - ALL LL Age 12 players must apply for Majors
    • AAA is for the players who are ready for AAA level play which includes some players who played AAA last season as well as some who played AA. Kids move up to the big fields w/lights. Skill levels increase as does the speed of the game.  At this level, players start to understand strategy as the game has fewer restrictions than lower levels.
      • NOTE – LL Age 10 players are required to attend Skills Assessments and register for AAA - even if this is your first year. We will make decisions in the draft room if coaches do not feel your player is safe to play at this level.
    • AA level is for those players who are not ready for AAA baseball and would benefit from a skills refresher. This AA level will stress skills development. There are NO TRYOUTS for AA players. Live pitching is introduced and kids move up on field size. Players become more familiar with positions. Plays are now being made on a consistent basis.
    • 50/70/Juniors - This division is for players who have aged out of Majors. Players Little League Age 13 & 14 play in this division where the fields are bigger, the distance between bases and pitching distances are greater, and skill/strategic play increase. These games are typically held at Civic Field or Playfields, where the field size matches this division. 
      • These divisions are tentative for the Fall. Please register so we have numbers, but full refunds will be offered if we do not have enough volunteers or if other D64 leagues do not form teams to play against. 
  • When does registration start?
    • Regular Registration generally opens late July / early August. Please check our Calendar page for exact Fall Ball registration dates.
      • A late registration period will remain open after regular registration closes. A $30 non-refundable late fee will apply to all late registrations received.
  • When are Skills Assessments and who are they for?
    • Please check our Calendar page for the Fall Ball Skill Assessment dates.
    • Players will be assigned a 30 minute time slot for evaluations. More information will be emailed to registered AAA and Majors players the week of assessments.
    • Only AAA and Majors attend tryouts
      • The AA division does not participate skills evaluations.
    • All players will be assigned to a team, regardless of their tryout performance. Help your child relax. This is just a way for the managers to get a quick look at your child's skills to help with competitive team balances at these levels.
  • We live in Dixon or Winters. Can my child play in Davis?
    • Yes. Dixon and Winters LL's do not offer a Fall Ball Season, which allows players from those towns to play for DLL, even if your player does not attend school in Davis.
  • We live in Woodland. Can my child play in Davis?
    • Depends. If your child attends school in Davis, yes, they can register for DLL. If they go to school in Woodland, they must play for the Woodland Little League who does hold a fall season.
  • What if my home league is having a season and we would rather play Davis Little League?
    • You may apply for a waiver from both league presidents and must be approved by the District 64 administrator. You can find a copy for the form here. Please submit your request to [email protected]
  • When does the season start?
    • Practices generally begin at the beginning of September.
    • Please check our Calendar page for a list of important Fall Ball season dates.
  • How old does my child have to play to participate in the Davis Little League
    • The Fall Davis Little League Season is for players ages 7-14. DLL adheres to the 2023 Little League Age Chart . PLEASE FIGURE OUR YOUR CHILD'S LL AGE BEFORE REGISTERING. Your child's LL age can be different from their actual age as our age chart flips over to the new year in September of every year. 
  • Can I request a specific coach or to play with a friend?
    • No. In order to keep teams fair, our AA Division Rep will balance teams by dispersing players based on their league, age, experience, school, and feedback from former coaches. We endeavor to have kids play with a few others from their schools so they'll know "someone". Baseball is all about making new friends. Part of team sports is developing the individuals into a team. While we all value friendships and love our former coaches, growth comes from trying new things and playing with new friends and coaches. Baseball is a perfect training ground for developing new relationships in the future. AAA and Majors players are chosen in a draft that follows the skills evaluations, thus same rules apply.
      • The only way to guarantee 2 friends play together is if their parents register as manager/asst coach and agree to coach a team together. 
      • Siblings will be placed together on the same team unless one is not ready to play at the same level or the family requests separate teams.
  • When will I be notified of my child's team placement?
    • You should hear from your child's coach the week before practices are scheduled to begin. 
DLL Fall 2022 Baseball is currently open to all players with birthdates between September 2008 - August, 2016.
Regular Registration closes at the end of day on Saturday, August 13, 2022 at midnight
Late registration ($30 - non-refundable) will close at the end of the day on Friday, August 20, 2022.
