The South Farmington board HIGHLY discourages kids playing in a league they are not eligible to play, however, we will consider exceptions on a case by case basis for early advancement for the spring season. Anyone wishing to advance MUST
attend our Move-Up/Tryout date, usually scheduled in early March (see our Event Calendar
for date, times, and location). Please print the Early Advancement Policy for Baseball
and bring it on the scheduled date). "Move-Ups" are for players in Tee-ball, 8U baseball, and 8U and 10U softball that wish to advance to the next age level. "Tryouts" are for players in our Minors baseball division (ages 10 or 11) that wish to advance to our Majors division. Playing up in any other divisions not listed here is not allowed. Your child MUST attend the move-up/tryout scheduled date to be considered for early advancement, and must also be registered to play during the registration period (December 5th - March 16th). Please do not wait to register. If the league determines that your child is not ready to advance, you will receive a full refund if requested.
Yes, for the spring season, there is a spot on the registration form to request to play with another player for 8U and Tee Ball. We try to honor these requests as best as we can, however, we make no guarantees. In baseball, divisions above 8U will hold a draft, so friend and coach requests are not available. For the Fall Ball season, teams are assigned and not drafted, so coaches and teammates can be requested. However, we can not guarantee the requests, and we also reserve the right to adjust teams to maintain a competitive balance.
