I've Registered, What's Next?

UpdatedMonday December 14, 2020 byFranklin Little League.

If you haven’t yet registered players or volunteers, paid for player registrations, or wish to understand more about the various divisions of play, volunteer requirements, candy bar sales, or the refund policy, please see the Register for Next Season page.

After registrations have been received by Franklin Little League, a number of activities still must occur before the first bat is swung for the season!  In some cases, you must take specific action to help us comply with Little League rules and regulations…please read carefully, below.

Teams, including managers and coaches, are formed in the late-February through March.  Certain baseball and softball divisions require skill assessments (evaluations) to help decide team assignments.  The evaluations are used to assess the skills of each player and to distribute the varying skills to each team as evenly as possible.  For those divisions that require evaluations, managers will “draft” players onto the various teams to equalize the level of play as best as possible.

Game schedules are established in April/ May and will be communicated through the web site as well as through individual team managers and coaches.

Players who registered for the Minor, Major, Intermediate, Junior and Senior Divisions must attend evaluations.  The exact date, time, and location will be announced in late February  Remember, these sessions are used to distribute skills as evenly as possibly across teams to ensure competitive play as we are a recreational league.  No players will be refused an assignment to a team, regardless of skill level.

Managers and coaches will contact team members in mid-April, typically via email.  If you do not hear from Franklin Little League by April 30, please contact us immediately.

Teams should begin practicing no later than May.
