Fall Ball Information
Number of Teams
Ideally, two Minors teams and two Majors teams. Age determination is based upon 2010 Little League age charts. Ages 6-13 as of April 30, 2009 are eligible to play. The six and seven year olds play machine pitch. The eight and nine year olds play minors. The ten and eleven year olds play majors.
Number of Players per Team
Approximately 15 players per team. Because many kids are also playing other fall sports, rosters are larger to accommodate absences.
Usually once per week on a weeknight. Practices begin in early September and end by mid-October due to darkness.
Games are most often on Saturdays in the late afternoon and/or on Sunday afternoons. Each team also usually has at least one game under the lights in the evening.
The game schedule is usually finalized after Labor Day. At least one, sometimes two, games can be expected each weekend until the last weekend of October. Assume roughly twelve games over eight weekends.
Game and Practice Locations
Practices are held on the Lower Gwynedd home fields. Games are within a twenty mile radius at locations such as Conshohocken, Plymouth Meeting, Bridgeport, Whitemarsh, Flourtown, etc.
Developmental and competitive. Equal playing time for all players. Coaches understand that players may have conflicts and players are not penalized for such.
