There are many variables (weather, field availability, number of teams, etc.) that will affect the duration of the season. Typically the season will last 8 – 12 weeks from the date of the first game. In 2018, the season will start the first week of April and run until mid June.

It is a League decision to call off a game due to rain. When in doubt, show up at the ballpark. Games may be played at one field and not another on any given day depending on if a field is playable or not. We will make every effort to alert you of rained-out games with TeamSnap App notifications and alerts, often these notifications will not be sent out until just before game time. Rain-out games will be made up at a later date.
Foothill League provides all the baseballs, helmets, and catcher’s equipment needed to play a game. Players are responsible to provide their own baseball mitts and bats. Every player does not need their own bat, players are encouraged to share, but the league does only have access to a few team bats. The league will also provide jerseys and hats, the individual players are responsible for acquiring their own baseball pants, socks, belt, and shoes. Players are permitted to bring/purchase/use their own batting helmet if they so desire and their coach approves.
The frequency and duration of practices completely depends on the coach. If you are concerned with the practice scenario, please discuss your concerns with the head coach of your child’s team.
ONLY in our Rookie and Pee Wee Divisions do we try and accommodate this request. We cannot always make every accommodation, but will try with players in these two divisions. If a request is not made we will group players be school area or neighborhoods as best we can.
For our other four Divisions: Continental, National, American, and Prep we hold assessments at the beginning of the season and will not accommodate requests to play with certain coaches or players. The only exception to this rule is in the event of siblings; siblings can be selected as a “package deal” in the draft and play on the same team. The teams are selected via a draft process, coaches do the selecting of players. We have found this to be the most fair way to distribute players by skill level while providing competitive games for all teams. This is a perfect opportunity to make new friends and have friendly competition among classmates and neighborhood friends when facing them as opponents.
