WELCOME TO THE FALL 2022 SEASON REGISTRATION!
Hello Tempe South families!
Fall ball registration is here! We have options for ages 6-14 this year. Please read below for some general information.
Register here: https://tempesouth.sportngin.com/register/form/506017323.
For ages 6-7-8, registration is now open. We will be having 4 clinics for the players to work on their skills to improve for the following Spring Season
For ages 9-12, registration is now open. Fees are $115/player. We will have 5-8 teams in both Minors and Majors divisions. We have teams from Chandler, Guadalupe, and Rio Little Leagues.
Games and practices will be at a combination of 4 fields in the Tempe area including TSLL Bloomquist Field, Guadalupe Little League (Baseline and Priest), and Tempe Rio Little league Mantei Field (Broadway and Roosevelt) and Luis Gonzales fields (Rio Salado and Mill). Most TSLL practices will be at our Bloomquist fields.
For ages 13 & 14, we are participating in a district Junior’s program this fall. Games will be held at Nazomi Field near Chandler and Kyrene. Practice locations for juniors is still being worked out.
What division should you register for?
Fall ball's intent is to be developmental for players, coaches, and Umps. As a result, players are to be placed in the division that they will likely play in the spring 2023 season. To determine which division the player should register, please calculate out how old the player will be on August 31st, 2023 (one year from now). This is their 2023 "Little League Age".
13- and 14-year-olds should register for Juniors. No exceptions.
11 and 12-year-olds should register for Majors. This will enable players talent to be gauged for a more competitive spring season. Requests to play down in minors will be declined.
9 and 10-year-olds should register for Minors (Introductory kid pitch).
6-, 7-, and 8-year-olds should register for the clinics.

Like many nonprofit organizations, Tempe South Little League suffered financial losses in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, the league isn’t likely to recoup the losses of 2020 during the 2021 season with registration fees alone. Current registration numbers are down significantly as we assume many families, for various reasons, are not ready to enroll in organized sports. We understand that many members of our community have suffered financial harm, but we also know there are others who are seeking opportunities to give back in meaningful ways.
Here are some ways your donations help the league:
$30 operates lights for one two-hour game
$40 pays for a Jr. Umpire for a night of baseball
$100 provides a team with a season worth of practice and game balls
$300 allows us to purchase a new set of protective catcher’s gear
Replacing a mound when it becomes unsafe can cost up to $4000 Tempe South Little League operates solely on donations and volunteers and we need your help. Please consider donating and forwarding this message to a friend so that we can continue to provide an affordable and joyful opportunity for kids to participate in t-ball and baseball for years to come.
We are able to accept donations via PayPal at our email email@example.com or via mail at Tempe South Little League PO Box 12438 Tempe, AZ 85284.
