Intermediate Division:  Baseball players who register for the Major or Junior Divisions will be asked during registration if they are interested in playing Intermediate Division baseball.  This division offers additional competitive playing opportunities for those interested and who meet the birth date range, above.  Additional fees, yet to be determined, will apply.  If you are at all interested to hear more, please express your interest during the online registration process!  By expressing interest in the Intermediate Division, players are not obligated to play nor are they guaranteed an Intermediate Division roster position.

Note that all first-time FLL players must submit a copy of their birth certificate within 10 business days of their registration.  This can be submitted in person at the Information Day, emailed to Birth Certificate Submission, or mailed to Franklin Little League, P.O. Box 320301, Franklin, Wisconsin 53132.

Tryouts:  All players who register for the Baseball Major or Junior divisions will be placed on a team.  The tryout sessions are used to assess the skills of each player and to distribute the varying skills to each team as evenly as possible.  No players will be refused an assignment to a team, regardless of skill level.  Following the tryouts, managers will “draft” players onto the various teams to equalize the level of play as best as possible.

All tryouts are held at the Forest Park Middle School gymnasium, 8225 West Forest Hill Avenue.

Volunteer Requirements & Refundable Volunteer Fee - Please read about the new volunteer fee structure
Franklin Little League has a policy for all divisions (except for Challenger and Senior) that each family must pay a single $50.00 volunteer fee per family plus a $50.00 volunteer fee per player at the beginning of the season which will be refunded at the end of the season if the family performs their volunteer responsibilities.  These fees are in addition to your registration fees.  If each family does its part, everyone benefits!  It is required that each family perform 4 hours of volunteer service per registered player during the season.  Volunteer opportunities include Field Fix-Up Day, Annual Picnic and Awards Day, All-Star and Junior Sabers tournament support, or the ever-popular FLL concession stand.  Also, team managers receive full volunteer time credit and rostered coaches (only 2 rostered coaches per team) will receive half-credit towards their volunteer time.

Fundraising
FLL will be conducting a fundraiser that will be announced near the beginning of the season.  Also, an "opt out" election will be possible for those families that do not wish to participate in the fundraiser.  However, it is expected that all families either "opt out" or participate in the fundraising.

Candy Bar Sales
Purchase of FLL candy bars for resale to offset registration fees is optional.  You may indicate how many boxes you wish to purchase during the online registration process, however actual payment for the candy bars can only be made via personal check or cash at the Information Day or Tryout Day when the candy is picked up.  These candy bars are purchased for $30.00 per 60-bar box ($0.50 each bar) and the suggested selling price is $1.00 each.  If you purchase candy bars, it is your responsibility to sell them as there are no returns or refunds.  FLL receives no direct benefit or monies from the sale of candy bars.

Refunds
Please see our official Refund Policy.
