Welcome to the FWL 2017 Summer Registration!
To register for the Futures League, you must be graduating high school and committed to play baseball in college. You also may be a current college player rostered at a NCAA, NAIA or JUCO school. You must complete the registration form below.
FWL expects each player to maintain impeccable moral standards, abide by NCAA guidelines, and be a role model to our community.
Please note that participation in the FWL does not guarantee future placement on an FCSL team.
Housing is not provided, however, we have secured an affordable rate with a local Extended Stay hotel if you wish to utilize that.
COST AND REGISTRATION DEADLINE
The registration deadline is APRIL 28. A non-refundable deposit of $200 will secure a spot. You may pay in full at the time of registering, or select our convenient installment plan. After May 15, players from the wait-list will replace players with unresolved balances. Refunds are only issued for an injury substantiated by a doctor. Players who pay for the Futures League and are signed to a Florida League roster will have their payments from the Futures League applied to the Florida League.
The cost of the FWL is $750
PRIMARY PITCHERS ONLY:
The cost of the FWL is $450**
** Fee reduction is strictly for primary pitchers who do not bat or play another position. Players will not be allowed to play a secondary position if they have paid the pitcher-only fee.
If a spot is not available at the time of registration, you will be placed on a wait-list in the order your registration was received. Any fees paid will result in a refund in the event a spot does not become available.
The FWL carries small rosters to provide maximum opportunity for playing time. While the roster size and rules allow for maximum flexibility with the lineup, we do not guarantee you will start every game at your primary position. Playing time is up to the discretion of our coaches.
