Working Together to Achieve a Common Goal
Spring season starts the little league year and as such Chandler National follows the same little league age chart as it did in the prior spring season to determine players league age for fall ball. Our sponsors are so important to us, the sponsorships that we received in the spring season help us to operate the fall season as well. The biggest difference between spring and fall is in the spring there are two leagues (North and South) under one name; Chandler National. The leagues are divided by zip codes to determine boundaries. In the fall we generally have lower numbers than our spring season and therefore, we are one league. This can be confusing in spring when we separate players into north south boundaries for teams. Especially in the younger divisions where player requests may not be accommodated because of boundaries. Also, only in the fall season do we have those in Chandler American Little League boundaries participate in our league as (CALL) does not offer a fall little league season. The player agent does try to keep players in A and Rookie divisions by school and zip code boundaries the minor and major divisions are drafted. Since players are drafted the manager chooses practice location and times which may not be conveniently located for all team members. All games are played at Snedigar sports complex from Rookie to Majors teams and Nozomi for Junior’s teams.
Due to lower player participation in the fall we will have a minor and a major division. The minor division may be league age 8-10 and the major division is league age 11-12. Those that are league age 8 may attend evaluations to be draftable to the minor division. If a player is league age 8 and does not attend evaluations, then they will be placed in the A division which is coach pitch. Attending evaluations does not guarantee a spot in minor’s for league age 8 player, they must be drafted by manager. Fall ball we strive to develop fundamental baseball skills while still being competitive. There is an end of season tournament for A division and above. The fall season starts the Tuesday after Labor Day and the season is completed by Nov. 16. Every player is issued a baseball hat, and jersey. Players will need baseball pants, belt, socks, cleats, glove, helmet and bat. The manager will decide pant color and socks. We do ask for first time participants to upload a copy of their players birth certificate for verification.
