Guide to Operating a Little League® Second Season: Summer and Fall Ball Programs

Training and Development (TAD)
(Program options for children within your league's boundaries)

Informal League Play TAD Concept (Sandlot Season)
The informal league play TAD concept is designed for those leagues that strictly want to play extra games with little additional structured instruction. The concept is as follows:

  • Determine the number of volunteers needed
  • Determine number of players needed to form teams
  • Inform players during the regular season of the Fall Ball availability
  • Determine length of Fall schedule
  • If more than one team and not interleague playing, determine draft method. ( Re-draft method preferred )
  • Determine if participation awards are needed.
  • Alternate managers and coaches between teams so players are exposed to varying leadership / teaching methods.
  • Identify players who are "natural leaders" and utilize them as mentors for younger / more inexperienced players.

Did you know...

  • there is no additional charter fee to operate a Training and Development season.
  • There is no additional general liability or accident insurance fee to operate a Training and Development season (as long as coverage was already acquired for the same divisions under the group plans available through Little League Internatibnal in South Williamsport, Pa.)
  • there is no minimum number of players needed to operate a Training and Development season.
  • League age 12-year-olds may move up to the Junior/Senior Division or stay in the major division for the Training and Development season?
