Registration Listing

2019 BB Fall Season

Welcome to High Desert Little League,

Registration for our Fall 2019 season begins June 26th and continues until August 18th.

Fall Ball or as Little League sometimes refers it as the Second Season or Training and Development (TAD) seasons is all about accommodating the needs of the players. The less rigid schedule lets coaches focus on training and development, particularly in the younger players. Children who participate in Second Season and Fall Ball receive the attention they need, especially those who will be transitioning from tee-ball and coach pitch to older age groups.

We are doing things differently this fall with our traditional coach pitch division, we changing this division to a machine pitch division.  This is similar to what our neighboring little leagues have done.  These light-weight spring-loaded machines provide the players a consistent pitch to fine tune their hitting swings.  Also, it eliminates the inconsistent pitching from the coaches.  Depending on how this trial season goes, we may see this get incorporated into our future spring seasons.

Please be sure your email information is correct in our system, so you get all practice updates and schedules.
 
***There are no try-outs for the Fall season.***

We will be holding in-person registration/document checks at the Anthem Community Center on Saturday, August 10th and Saturday, August 17th from 9am until 12pm.

Address: 41130 N Freedom Way, Anthem, AZ 85086

Thank you!
