Free Nationals Tickets & Nationals Player Visit Event
Thanks to everyone for their help and participation in opening day. In addition to the great looking jerseys our partnership with the Nationals includes additional benefits.
Free Nationals Tickets
Each FCKLL player will receive two free tickets to the Nationals game on July 7. The only cost of the two tickets is wearing your Nationals Little League jersey. Coaches wearing the "Coach" Nationals hat can receive two tickets as well. Tickets will be able to be picked up at Nationals Park starting at 4pm on July 7 with gates opening at 5pm. There will be an opportunity to buy more tickets near the free tickets if needed. Please save the date as we'd love to see several hundred FCKLL kids in the park.
Nationals Player Visit
We will also be hosting an event with Mason District LL on May 27th at Westgate fields. A Nationals player will visit from 10am - 11am and we plan to make it an fun event for all kids who can make it from both leagues. We will have a challengers game as well as stations and other fun activities for the kids which allow them to interact with the Nationals player.
Please save these dates. We will post more information as we have it. And, LET'S GO NATS!
Summer camp season is almost here, and as you make choices about your baseball camp options, please consider the camp run by one of FCKLL's own sponsors: Marshall Statesmen Baseball.
Marshall Statesmen Baseball Camps are age-appropriate (age 9-14) instructional camps with a focus on the fundamental components of hitting, throwing, pitching, and fielding.
At younger ages, the focus is primarily on repetition, competition, and games, so that players become engaged in the learning process. Older age groups will focus on situational awareness and refine skill work.
The goal of the camp is to create small-scale versions of a high school baseball practice, adapted to age and skill-level. Within this structure, we teach players to value their relationships with their coaches and teammates in a competitive setting.
Hit-A-Thon 2017 will take place May 5 and 6 at Idylwood and Westgate fields. Players and their families should get started now on raising funds to help keep costs low and to provide the best possible little leage experience we can offer! Prizes will be available for the biggest hitters and fundraisers.
This spring, you’ll see a new development with respect to FCKLL teams and uniforms. FCKLL is proud to announce that we are working with the Washington Nationals, and we’re very excited to be participating in the Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Uniform Program.
The Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Uniform Program is a partnership effort between our region's major league franchise and local leagues to supply free uniforms and support little league baseball. This unique program is designed to build a shared excitement across the city and connect kids to their hometown team.
What’s in it for FCKLL and our players?
The Nationals will be providing, at no cost to FCKLL, a Nationals athletic quality top and cap for each player.
Majors players will receive full-button jerseys and caps.
AAA players will receive two-button, pullover jerseys and caps.
Tee ball, Single A and AA boys and girls will receive athletic quality T-shirts and caps.
The Nationals will also be providing a corresponding Nationals cap, embroidered with the word “COACH,” for three coaches on every team.
Yes, this means that each team will technically be “The Nationals”, but teams will be differentiated through the use of a variety of styles and colors of jerseys and caps as well as sponsor names.
In addition to the uniforms, additional support from the Nationals includes:
A Nationals player visit at a combined VA District 4 Little League event.
Two tickets to a Nationals game for every league family.
Why Are The Nationals Doing This?
For 33 years, Major League Baseball was non-existent in the D.C. region creating a gap between kids and the game. In addition, many boys and girls face financial and other barriers preventing them from playing baseball and softball. The Washington Nationals are eager to close that gap by embracing a highly focused, passionately driven leadership role that brings the benefits of baseball directly to kids. The Nationals Youth Baseball Uniform Program helps break down and minimize obstacles preventing kids from playing baseball and softball.
