ALSO, Fall Ball is an INSTRUCTIONAL season, therefore, in the circumstance where there are divisions that support the same ages, (example if you??re league age 9 you can play AA or AAA) there is no guarantee the player will play in the higher or older division for the following Spring Season.
Ages 4-8: $80.00
Ages 9-14: $90.00

New players to CNLL must provide a proof of residency AND a birth certificate.

To adhere to Rule 1.10, CNLL is requiring that all bats be approved by the Board of Directors for play in the 2016 season. Bats must be approved prior to use on the field. Managers should contact their Division Director to request that any new bats purchased during the season be approved by CNLL BEFORE they are used in a game.
