NARRATIVE

These policies and requirements are to ensure that the players, coaches and parents fully understand to what the expectations are for competing in the Kino Fall League.

FALL LEAGUE DEFINITION

The Kino Baseball Fall League is a competitive program for age divisions 9U through to 15U. The fall league is NOT a recreational or developmental type of league. The teams that participate in the league are mainly experience players and teams. Teams that have not played in a competitive environment may want to re-consider before entering the Kino Fall League.

If you have a team that is looking for development then possibly the Little League Fall Training and Development (TAD) program may be best suited for your players.

We wish to be assured that every young athlete has the opportunity to play at the skill level that they are comfortable with so as to enjoy the game. Nothing worse than having a team that needs further development playing in a division with teams that have more playing experience in a competitive setting.

The results are never positive Teams that play in the Kino Fall League play for championships.
