Concussion Training- Heads Up Online Training Course

Get prepared for the new season in less than 30 minutes

Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports is a free, online course available to coaches, parents, and others helping to keep athletes safe from concussion.  This is a mandatory course for all FGLL coaches and managers.  After you complete the course, you will need to print the certificate and turn it into your respective league director.  The course features interviews with leading experts, dynamic graphics and interactive exercises, and compelling storytelling to help you recognize a concussion and know how to respond if you think that your athlete might have a concussion. Once you complete the training and quiz, you can print out a certificate, making it easy to show your league or school you are ready for the season.

Rules & Procedures

Local Rules

FGLL follows the Little League rule book to govern play.  Each coach received an official rule book prior to the season and is expected to follow those rules to the best of his/her ability.  In some circumstances, Little League allows local rules to be applied.  The following local rules have been approved for the upcoming season.  Please review them and follow them throughout the season.

Pitch Count

Pitch Count rules have become a bit part of Little League.  The pitch count rule was established to help prevent/eliminate arm injuries in our young players.  Managing the pitch count for all your players is required and will be tracked here.  After every game, please confirm pitch count and score with opposing team and text/email your league director with pitch count and game scores.

Umpires

Please remember that it is VERY hard for us to find umpires.  It is a very difficult job and most of our umpires are young men/women with little experience.  They have gone through an umpire training class, but the only way to really learn is by making mistakes.  Please remember that these are young men/women trying to do the best job they can.  If you have a question, calmly call “time” and approach the umpire with respect.  Your players, nor parents, want to see you belittle an umpire.  It creates an embarrassing atmosphere for everyone.  It is also your job to speak with parents and make sure they know how difficult the job of an umpire is. Any problems should be directed to your league director.
