What to Expect

When you have your child play for Turlock National Little League, you can expect well-managed fields, professional umpires, great uniforms, and a learning environment that is supportive and kind to your child no matter their skill level.

Here’s what you can expect when your child plays for TNLL.

TYPICAL CALENDAR OF EVENTS

Registration is always in January. Opening day is in March.  The season is March – May for AA, AAA, and Major Divisions. 50/70 and Seniors may have a different time frame.  All Stars starts mid to late June and runs thru July 6 in our area, and thru July for CA. Playoffs are at the end of may once all regular games have been played.

PRACTICES

Practice frequency and duration for regular Little League season is left up to the discretion of the managers. Usually, teams practice two to three times a week. However, some practice once a week, and some more early on in the season. Once the season starts, practices taper down as make teams pay two to three games a week.

GAMES

AA (Machine pitch)
  • One game a week (Saturday)
AAA/MAJORS/50-70/Seniors
  • Two games a week (one midweek and one on Saturday)

FUNDRAISING

To help keep our registration fees low, fundraising is an integral part of Turlock National Little League’s budget. Currently your registration fee only covers about 30% of the cost of league expenses. The difference is made up with revenue from fundraising, concessions, and selling of sponsorships.

All parents are required to participate in TNLL’s fundraising event.  This year, we will be selling candy bars.  Each child is required to sell one box of candy bars.  Your child’s team will coordinate the sales with you.

All parents are also required to work one shift in Soderquist Ballfield’s snack shack.  You child’s team will work with you to schedule a time for your shift.
