Registration for Travel tryouts in December for 7U thru 12U are open now….
There is grandfathering permitted in 2017, only for those players who played travel baseball with SPFBL in 2014 and are currently in grade 4 or higher. NOTE: If you are eligible and choose to take advantage of the grandfathering to continue playing with your grade, that decision is considered declared and final as of the tryout date. This means the player will be considered the age group they declare for the entire 2017 travel season.
Exception to grandfathering rule: 7th graders who play in the SPFBL Middle School program will need to play 13U summer age, even if they are eligible for 12U. All other 7th graders subject to grandfathering and who have a choice by virtue of a young birthday may elect to play either 12U or 13U per the Babe Ruth age chart.
Exception 1st Graders: Incoming 1st graders who are by age-rules technically 6U may try out for 7U, provided that they understand that if they make a 7U team, they will be required to play 7U again next year.
