Looking for an opportunity for your player to improve their skills and further their love and enjoyment of baseball? Novato South Little League Fall Ball may be just the ticket! Fall Ball is an instructional league starting in August for players who will be league age 8-12 years old in 2015 (born May 2002 through April 2007).
Novato South Little League plans to organize at least one team (in some cases up to four teams per level) for each in the following levels (ages shown indicate 2015 league age):
A-AA players planning on playing in AA in Spring 2015 (ages 8-9)

AAA players planning to try out for the Major League in Spring 2015 (ages 10-12)
Players returning to the Major League in Spring 2015 (ages 10-12)
The emphasis is on teaching kids all aspects of the game, and players usually have an opportunity to play multiple positions, building their skills for the Spring 2014 Novato South Little League season.
You and your player(s) can expect:
2-3 baseball sessions per week; practices will start mid-August/
A 7-8 game season, played once per week on Sundays, in Novato and at other fields in Marin
Games will begin in late-August or early-September and will run through the end of October/beginning of November, with no games on Labor Day weekend.
Games are played against teams from the entire district (San Rafael, Dixie/Terra Linda, Novato North, West Marin).
Games are umpired by volunteer coaches.
The atmosphere is fun, collegial and all about personal development and improvement.
