Fall ball starts later this month for South Whidbey Little League.
The fall baseball season is considered a training and development league for players ages 9 to 12 (age prior to May 1). It incorporates special rules aimed at promoting instruction for all players at a majority of the positions as well as giving coaches more flexibility to instruct during games.
South Whidbey will compete with North Whidbey, Anacortes and Central Whidbey. Interleague games will be Saturdays only with the exception of a possible Friday night game in Anacortes under the lights due to school schedules and daylight restrictions later in the season. Games will begin the second week of September and run through the end of October.
There will be a group practice at 1 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 25 on Field No. 1 at Community Park, which will give the coaches a chance to see the players before dividing into teams.
Registration forms are available at www.eteamz.com/swllb and can be mailed to P.O. Box 1431, Freeland 98249, or sign up in person at the fields near the concession stand from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 25 to fill out the registration form and medical release.
Registration for fall ball costs $60.
