Rules are based on rules compiled by the OC Fall Ball Federation and finalized by the hosting leagues.
The Fall Ball season generally starts at the end of August with games starting after Labor Day. The season usually ends in November the week before Thanksgiving.
Fall Ball is comprised of two separate programs:
Both programs involve playing teams from other leagues, but each offers a different level of competition and commitment from the girls.
Note: During Fall, we HIGHLY encourage players to move up to their Spring division to get some experience with any new equipment or rule changes. If your player is moving to the next age division in Spring of 2019, she should "play up" to that division during this Fall season (for example if your player is a 2nd year 8U, moving to 10U in spring, she should play 10U Fall Ball now).
Select players must play in the division that they will be playing in the following Spring season.
This program is competitive, but has less intensity and weekly time commitment compared to the Select program and does not require an invitation from a coach.
Note: Select players are required to play in the division that they will be playing in the following Spring season.
The Fall Select program is highly competitive with a greater time commitment required. There will be an emphasis in select to have the players play in their spring 2019 age specific division. Players must be selected by the Select team coach and the selection process is completely at the coaches discretion. If your player is not selected, she will be placed on a recreational team. If your player is selected by the Select coach, there will be an additional charge of $100 to cover additional field time and tournaments.
